MIAMI GARDENS, FL - FEBRUARY 07: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell watches teams warm up prior to the start of Super Bowl XLIV between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints on February 7, 2010 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida (Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty Images)
Saying that the Saints fans are holding a grudge against Roger Goodell would be like saying that Kevin Garnett trash talking is on a Shakespeare level. Saints fans are really mad at Goodell to the point I think he might need Carmelo Anthony’s bodyguard while he is walking around town. Here are some of the things Saints fans are doing in lieu of his arrival. An effigy of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell dangles from the front porch of a New Orleans home that is otherwise festively decorated with Saints paraphernalia. With restaurants and bars gearing up for an influx of Super Bowl XLVII visitors, the “Refuse to Serve Roger Goodell” page on Facebook had 107 likes as of Friday. A portrait of Goodell covers the bull’s-eye on the dart board at Parkview Tavern. Would the Saints had made the Super Bowl if Goodell hadn’t suspended those players, GM and their head coach Sean Payton? Who knows, but because they don’t know Goodell won’t be getting a hero’s welcome when he comes to the Big Easy.
