Roger Goodell reportedly had the secret service protecting him in New Orleans

Everyone knows that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is the most hated man in the city of New Orleans after the Saints bounty scandal that went down last year.

It’s been reported that Goodell had team of security guards with him at all times to protect him from any crazy fans that might try to harm him.

According to reports, Goodell was surrounded by a so-called “Iron Fence” of security while attending the Super Bowls, as were his many distinguished guests who shared the Commissioner’s suite inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Given the high-profile nature of Goodell’s guests, fleets of security, both Secret Service and NFL, were on guard to protect the box. A source reports that when the lights went out during the power outage, “Everyone remained calm, but a discussion started about the possible cause. [Outgoing head of the Pentagon] Panetta mused about a cyber attack, but quickly ruled it out. Meanwhile, Gov. Christie said, ‘I hope this doesn’t happen in New Jersey.’”

While a lot of people don’t like Goodell, I’m glad nothing happened to him. Even if people don’t like someone, harming a person is never acceptable.

    I wonder who had to pay for Secret Service protection for him?
    Was it really necessary???
