ATLANTA -- As has been the case in last several years, Barstool Sports is in the news during Super Bowl week.

On Opening Night, Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy and PFT Commenter, Eric Sollenberger, were thrown out and given criminal trespass warnings at State Farm Arena, the home of the Hawks. They will be arrested if they attemp to enter that arena, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Georgia World Congress Center or Centennial Olympic Park in the future.

Speaking after Roger Goodell's state of the league address Wednesday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft was asked about Barstool and seemed to defend the company.

“I love Barstool Sports," he said to a small group of reporters.

Portnoy has tickets to Sunday's game and says he will still try and attend.
