NEW ORLEANS - The picture is found in the window of many New Orleans restaurants with the words beneath it in large letters: Do not serve this man.

The picture is of Roger Goodell, the self-assured, slow-talking, much-mistrusted, much-hated in New Orleans commissioner of the National Football League.

Photos aside, he has yet to miss a meal of any kind this Super Bowl week.

That’s Goodell. He is the kind of man who is capable of standing in a hornet’s nest and walking away without a sting.
