New Orleans' revenge on NFL's Roger Goodell best served cold
Even London is hearing our message.

"New Orleanians have a fierce sense of civic pride, especially when it comes to their 2010 Super Bowl-winning Saints. Cue a mountain of ill will and a town angrily waiting for Goodell to show his face.

One of the worst ways New Orleans could punish anyone would be to withdraw its renowned cuisine and hospitality, and it seems many are heeding the clarion call of the "unwanted" posters."

that article said:
A groundswell of local wait staff and bartenders said they would, beyond even refusing service, punch the commissioner in the face or stamp on his testicles; a local lawyer said that he would defend anyone charged with assault, pro bono. A doggie bag and directions to the local hospital for you, sir?
British journalists have a much better command of the language.

While it's generally held that such systems were practised by other NFL teams, the Saints were made an example of, fined a league maximum of $500,000, stripped of draft picks and, to top it all, their talismanic head coach, Sean Payton, was suspended for the entire 2012 season
ha. See Rog, it's not that the Nation isn't stupid, it's that the world isn't!

aren't we still the number one team over there? Good find Doc; good read!

I know a lot of you here don't want to hear this, but the same was true after Katrina. The foreign press was much more on target that any American press. It is then that I started thinking that those in power controlled the press in this country.

Personally, I think it's bad press. It's well written and all but, to me, doesn't present the city in a good light.

Sry to jack a thread but Colin Powell's son was made head of the FCC under GW Bush. Under his watch the restriction on owning multiple media outlets was removed, thereby allowing very rich and politically conservative power brokers to "own" the message. It's now either a pre-shaped story, a politically-tilted to a predisposed view type of story or sensationalism that have all replaced real news.

If I want news about the USA, for example, I read Reuters.
