YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!

I cannot believe that Roger Goodell has been nominated for Man of the Year by Time! magazine. Do people really hate us that much that he has been nominated this year? They cite the fact that he has been in power since 2006 and basically cleaned up the NFL. Well then, where were the nominations the previous years? How strange that instead of choosing the year he comes down on drugs and actual crime, they choose the year he comes down hard on something which has yet to be proven and has been moving goalposts and lying and behind all kinds of shenanigans to do with this. What a smack in the face for Saints fans.

I agree. But look at this as more fuel added to our fire.

This has to be an Onion article. Kim Jong is sexiest man of the year as well.

Well, Adolf Hitler was the Time Magazine "Man of the Year" in 1938, and he was followed by Joseph Stalin the next year (1939) and again in 1942, so I wouldn't put too much emphasis on the nomination.

The nomination or naming isn't necessarily a positive thing, but simply a statement that the individual in question has affected world events during the year in question - for better or for worse.

Good way to put it in perspective, my initial reaction was, "NOOOOO!!" ... considering Mark Zuckerberg won it back in 2010 also helps me cope with Goodell's nomination, <sigh>.

So now when asked about Roger Goodell, I can just say "Oh that guy, just like Hitler"
