07:59 AM ET 01.22 | The countdown is on. In a few days the most hated man in New Orleans will arrive in town. As the NFL's commissioner, Roger Goodell serves as unofficial host for the league's championship week. He will attend meetings and banquets. A giant party will be thrown in his honor. A small fleet of cars will whisk him around the city. Usually a man in his role will be welcomed with warm applause. Except this time, New Orleans would rather he not come at all. The anger is still raw. Almost everybody here believes Goodell ruined the Saints' season with his yearlong suspension of coach Sean Payton over the team's bounty program. The most conspiratorial think he wanted to destroy the Saints.

Seriously.... I would consider sitting this one out. If he does go, he should bring his own food.

Roger Goodell should be the most-hated man in the NFL. Period. Not because of any specific action or any specific team, but because of his actions combined. He is a worthless schmuck.
