Metallica showed unwavering support for the New England Patriots in the Deflategate scandal Friday, when the band held a concert at Gillette Stadium, the NFL team’s home in Foxborough, Mass.

The band posted a tweet with a shirt that incorporated its logo with a throwback Patriots logo and read “DEFLATE THIS!!” while making a less-than-favorable gesture.

    I was lucky enough to get one last night but it was in a medium. No good for me. I would pick up a few if they are made available.

    Anyone know it it’s possible to order one of these? I saw people wearing them at the concert, but all the vendor booths were sold out.
