From a Patriots perspective, the biggest story from Super Bowl 50 was Tom Brady being booed when he was introduced with the previous Super Bowl MVP winners.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft was at the game and in an exclusive 1-on-1 interview with WCVB’s Maria Stephanos on Wednesday, he shared his thoughts on what happened.
“I mean to us, we didn’t hear it,” Kraft said. “We just heard loud noise and I just heard cheers everywhere around me. I didn’t find out what people — all the social media chatter, and I think there were a lot of Denver fans and Raider fans in the audience since it was so close. I don’t know. I think they see us as a big rival.
“He is such a classy, wonderful guy. He went there representing our team, our coaches, our fans.”
Kraft was also asked if he saw Roger Goodell at all during the week.
Typically he would see him at Goodell’s state of the league on Friday, but there was a Hall of Fame luncheon during that time so Kraft went to that instead.
The Patriots owner did say he talked to him briefly at the owners’ meeting Thursday night, but the conversation wasn’t “eventful.”
A lot of Patriots fans have wondered why the treatment of Peyton Manning and his case with HGH being sent to his home has been handled differently both in the media and with the league than Deflategate with Brady last year at this time.
“Well, I’ll let you and all the media experts opine on that,” Kraft said. “I happened to see Archie [Manning] there. He has two sons now who have won two Super Bowls, but with all due respect, we have one son who has won four.”
Kraft also relayed a gameday superstition where he typically uses an electric razor, but on gameday he uses a straight edge Gillette.
