Dave Portnoy holds ‘Chris Mortensen lies’ sign on ESPN broadcast (Video)


New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady met with Roger Goodell and the NFL very briefly in Manhattan federal court on Monday. It took about five minutes to determine that no settlement would be reached, but that was enough time for the official voice of Brady’s defense team to take a shot at Chris Mortensen on live television.

We’re talking about David Portnoy of Barstool Sports, of course.

Portnoy managed to walk up behind ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio with a sign that read “Chris Mortensen Lies” before security quickly shoved him away.

Another Barstool Sports employee later made his way into the shot wearing a “Free Brady” shirt and stood there for quite a while.

If you remember, these are the same guys who literally went to jail for protesting the Brady suspension outside the NFL offices in New York. You can read all about that adventure here.

Of course, Portnoy’s sign was referring to Mortensen’s incorrect report about Deflategate shortly after the scandal first erupted. The longtime ESPN reporter has since denied being played by an NFL source and claimed the Patriots apologized to him.

Judge Richard Berman says he will issue a decision on Deflategate this week.
