    A Maine man who has hired a plane to fly banners protesting the NFL's four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady again took to the air to gloat over a judge's reversal of that suspension.

    that Richard Pate's latest message - flown over Scarborough area beaches on Saturday - taunts NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell with the message: "Roger G. Feelin a Little Deflated?"

    Pate, of Biddeford, Maine, began his airborne banner campaign in August. He paid a pilot to fly over Goodell's vacation home in the exclusive Prouts Neck neighborhood of Scarborough towing a banner urging Goodell to "Jet home to N.Y." He commissioned another banner in early August wishing Brady a happy birthday "from Maine and Roger G."
