He was on the field at NRG Stadium, handing the Lombardi Trophy to Robert Kraft.

It was a moment that Patriots fans have dreamed about for two years, ever since the last time the commissioner did the same for the Patriots’ owner after a thrilling Super Bowl victory. Two years later, after Goodell has carefully kept himself away from Gillette Stadium following his crusade against Tom Brady, the moment came. And the Patriots fans let him have it.

Brady pays attention to everyone when they speak. In fact, former Celtics coach Doc Rivers said in an interview that aired during the pregame that when he once spoke to the Patriots, Brady sat front and center and took notes.

When Roger was speaking? Not so much.

After furthering his status as the greatest quarterback of all time, Brady did shake Goodell’s hand on the field.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft was asked what he said to the commissioner on the stage.

“OK, next question,” Kraft laughed. “I’m on to Cincinnati.”

Goodell hand the Super Bowl MVP trophy to Brady on Monday morning in Houston. It will be a historic moment.
