Roger Goodell gets booed mercilessly by Super Bowl crowd before Robert Kraft takes shot at him

During the Lombardi trophy celebration, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was booed mercilessly by New England fans while he attempted to congratulate Patriots owner Robert Kraft on the victory. You could barely hear Goodell through the chorus of boos.
