Patriots owner Robert Kraft decided to support a charity in his own unique way. The Patriots owner is offering his Super Bowl LI ring as part of his efforts to take part in the “ALL-IN Challenge.” Kraft made the announcement Sunday night, and triggered an avalanche of reactions. A lot of NFL fans supported this move. A lot of analysts praised Kraft’s move.
The winner will get the popular ring. According to ESPN, the winner will get a “personal visit with Kraft in his Gillette Stadium office, with the team sending its private plane to bring to town the new owner of the ring if not within driving distance.”
“What could I do that would be special? I’ve been thinking about it for weeks,” Kraft said in the video. “I finally thought about our experience in Super Bowl LI, against the Atlanta Falcons. We were down 28-3 (in the third quarter) and had 99.6% (odds) to lose. And we came back and we won. And I thought about what is going on at this time, and wanted to give something of extreme value in support of our health-care workers. So I thought it would be good to give this ring, our fifth Super Bowl win, because it showed how we came back.”
This “ALL-IN Challenge” was the most brilliant thing Kraft could do. Apart from the donation, of course. This challenge will raise funds for the coronavirus relief.

Former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady challenged NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the good cause. TB12 announced Wednesday that he has accepted the challenge in an effort to raise COVID-19 relief funds for those in need. Brady had to nominate others to take part in the challenge, and his selections made people ask questions.
Brady challenged the NFL Commissioner. A lot of people took this move seriously. Brady and Goodell have a unique history together. There was a tension between them after the Deflategate scandal. We can’t forget that Brady missed the first four games of the 2016 season Goodell suspended him and the quarterback missed a month. Well, the Patriots didn’t miss a lot back then.
