A trio of Cowboys legends weren’t enough to prevent Roger Goodell from being booed in Dallas.
Limited Kids Ondrej Palat Jersey The NFL commissioner walked across the stage at the 2018 NFL Draft on Thursday accompanied by Hall of Fame quarterbacks Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman as well as Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten, but was still welcomed with resounding boos.
The boos inside AT&T Stadium were so thunderous, Goodell’s opening remarks could hardly be heard.
I can’t believe you guys are booing the Cowboys, Goodell joked. Come on.

The boos didn’t stop there, as Goodell continued to be booed each time he took the podium for every pick that followed.
Miami: RHP Dan Straily (right forearm strain) and LHP Wei-Yin Chen (left elbow strain) both pitched this week and will continue their minor Darren Collison Womens Jersey league rehab assignments.
Los Angeles: Injured 3B Justin Turner (left wrist fracture) started taking `dry’ swings. No firm date has been set for is return.
The Dodgers acquired minor league left-hander Logan Salow from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for righty Wilmer Font.
Miami: After an off day Thursday, the Marlins open a six-game homestand starting with the Colorado Rockies on Friday. RHP Jose Urena (0-3, 5.88) will take the hill for the Marlins.
Los Angeles: The Dodgers are off Thursday and will begin a season-long 11-game, 10-day road trip starting Friday at San Francisco. Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-0, 1.99) will take the mound to open the four-game series.
The Maple Leafs have an average group of defensemen, and against this top-tier Boston offense, Andersen has been leaned on heavily on the back end. Look for Rick Nash and Marchand to create some chaos in front of the net, and expect a heavy dose of rubber off the stick of Pastrnak once again — he leads the team with 24 shots in the playoffs. But there is little doubt this game hinges on just how well Andersen can perform.
Wyshynski: I originally picked the Maple Leafs to win in six. I’ll pick them to win in seven instead, as I feel like they’ve found their footing against the Bruins. As long as they get the dominant Freddie Andersen and not the soft-goal Freddie Andersen.
Greg Wyshynski and Emily Kaplan break down the second-round playoff matchups that have been set, and give their top candidates for the Conn Smythe. Plus, Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon and longtime Penguins beat writer Rob Rossi.
Kaplan: The Bruins. Bergeron, Marchand and Pastrnak put a ton of pressure on Andersen in Game 6; they just didn’t get the results. I see Boston’s big names breaking through, as one of them will play hero at home.
