AROUND THE WEB:

-- Dave Portnoy was kicked out of Super Bowl Media Night on Monday when it was discovered he entered under a fake name and in disguise.

Portnoy, who, along with Barstool Sports, was banned from all NFL activities, got into the event with a credential under the name Freddie Lyndon. In the credential photo, Portnoy wore an “I heart Goodell” hat and a mustache.

Legendary move.

PFT Commenter was also caught as Wayne Tables and kicked out.

Portnoy later said he was charged with criminal trespassing and was told not to return to State Farm Arena until next year.

The beef between Barstool and the NFL dates back to Deflategate when Barstool popularized the Goodell clown nose t-shirt and took a strong, and rightful, anti-Goodell stance in the situation.

-- Tom Brady’s handwritten, autographed notes from Super Bowl XXXIX could be yours if you have $25,000 on hand.

The notes from the Patriots' 24-21 win over the Eagles in the 2005 is up for auction through Steiner Sports.

Bidding will reportedly start at $2,500 but is expected to reach over $25,000.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We’re going to have to figure a way out to get the revenge. I mean, that was not nice what he did. I heard the guy got seriously hurt.” -- Rob Gronkowski, on Jamal Adams tackling and injuring Pat Patriot at the Pro Bowl
