Sean Payton reinstated, but Saints fans not letting Roger Goodell off the hook

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell finally reinstated New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton on Tuesday, ending Payton's suspension after nearly one full year away from his team. Goodell's decision allows Payton to jump in and help with free agency and draft preparations -- in the latter case, likely beginning immediately with the Senior Bowl.

Payton's return also comes just a few days before the NFL world descends on New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII. So, with their head coach back in place, Saints fans will be nice and welcoming for Goodell, right?

Sure.

Suffice it to say, Goodell could be in for a cold welcome next week, as he parades around New Orleans on behalf of the NFL. The reception does not figure to get much friendlier during the Super Bowl itself, when Goodell presents the Vince Lombardi Trophy to the winner -- plenty of Saints fans figure to nab tickets to the game, even though their team failed to make the playoffs.
