Saints News, 9/19/14: Roger Goodell Press Conference Gets Poor Reviews

New, comments

Lots of people tweeting their contempt for what they saw and heard in the NFL's latest PR stunt. See below. Some are hilarious! This is a direct result of Goodell's dishonesty and exaggeration during Bountyfarce. Congratulations, Saints fans! There's no question anymore that the world now sees that what the Saints were accused of in 2012 by Goodell and his operatives in the media was simply not reality.
