Sure, Godhell lifted SP's suspension because he is such a good person! If the SB would be in any other city than NO, does anybody think he would have lifted it too?

RG could care less! He's coming in heavily guarded you won't even get to smell his cheap aftershave. When Sunday is over maybe the Bounty talk starts to fade to black.

Re: Goodell should expect rude welcome

I dropped a poop in my toilet that looked just like Roger Goodell (it wasn't very hard to do).

YES the guy messed with the wrong city, regardless of what anyone thinks or says here in this forum or elsewhere.

New Orleans people are hardened city folk, just like Philly, Brooklyn, Boston, Detroit, etc.

You mess with them, they're gonna mess with you. If you're good to them, they will be SUPER good to you. Goodell kinda messed with the city of New Orleans. End of story.

Trust me, had he done this to the Eagles, Goodell would NOT be strolling the streets of Philadelphia without a body guard. If anything, compared to what he did WITHOUT PROOF, I think the people in NOLA are being nice.

If anything came out of me that looked like Goodell I would be making an appointment with a physician ASAP.

Not sure if "expect" is the best word for the OP.. I prefer to think "prepare" would be more fitting.

Re: Goodell should expect rude welcome

This bit from profootball mock on the subject just cracked me up.

Roger Goodell: ďWhy Does All The Food In New Orleans Taste Like It Has Spit In It?Ē
January 29, 2013 ∑

By Roger Goodell

This is it folks: Super Bowl week. And I am PUMPED. Itís gonna be a great game between two fantastic teams. And when itís done, Iíll hand over a shiny new Lombardi trophy to the winner of the 2013 Super Bowl, right here in beautiful New Orleans, LA.

I do have one question though: why does all the food in this town taste like it has spit in it?

Yesterday morning, for example, I ordered up a room service breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast and coffee, and I swear that everything tasted like spit. And I donít mean just clear, watery saliva, because who could taste that, right? No, Iím talking about full on, snotty, hock-a-loogie type of mucousy spit.

Obviously, no one in the kitchen of a New Orleans hotel would intentionally spit in a guestís breakfast, especially when that guest is the respected commissioner of the National Football League, as I am. So I assumed it was just a local seasoning.

But then for lunch, I grabbed a sub at Quiznoís, and damned if my turkey on whole wheat didnít have the same taste! And when I lifted up the top bun to see what was creating that greasy flavor, you know what happened? A bunch of long, goopy strings stretched out from the meat to the bread. Kind of like spit would look, I assume.

What could possibly be causing this? The employees at the Quiznoís seemed nice enough, and I could tell they recognized me because I saw their eyes go wide the minute I walked in the place. I even heard one of them whisper, ďLook, itís him!Ē Clearly, they were pretty star struck, so they obviously wouldnít smear phlegm onto my food. But whatís causing it then? Something in the local water supply, maybe? If so, Iím surprised the residents havenít complained to their local officials about it.

Anyway, last night for dinner, I went to Galatoireís on Bourbon Street. The place is a five star restaurant with an impeccable reputation, and I was looking forward to a nice, gourmet meal. I ordered one of their specialties, the ribeye bordelaise. My waiter sort of grinned and said heíd make sure that the chef would prepare it ďjust right.Ē So I was really ready for one delicious cut of meat, you know? But yet again, there was that spitty flavor. On the steak, in the potatoes, I swear even the wine looked like there was something kind of slimy floating around in it. I didnít want to be rude, so I ate everything, and I think that pleased the staff because they were all watching me and smiling. But I tell you, Iím getting pretty tired of this.

If that same gross taste is in the food again tomorrow morning, Iím going to complain to the desk clerk at my hotel. But I doubt itíll do much good. Iíve been telling them for days now that the complimentary toothbrushes they give me smell like theyíve been up someoneís ass, and yet that nasty odor is still there every day. This town is weird, man.

Re: Goodell should expect rude welcome

I'm thinking some of those folks at ESPN should be worried as well. Like anyone has forgotten their role in the whole thing? Wiretapping ring a bell ESPN?
