In New Orleans, an unwelcome mat for Goodell
NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans Saints fans are celebrating the return of coach Sean Payton from his suspension following last year's "bountygate" scandal.
But NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who will present the NFL championship trophy when the Super Bowl is played in New Orleans on Feb. 3, is getting a less-than-warm welcome in some quarters.
Some hold a grudge over the suspension of Payton and key players and coaches. Signs saying Goodell won't be served are posted at some bars and eateries. And Goodell's image adorns the dart board at one lounge.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu is among city leaders reminding residents to mind their manners. Landrieu says Goodell played a big part in keeping the Saints in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and in bringing the Super Bowl back to the city.
