If you did not know better, you might wonder if someone took out a bounty on Roger Goodell.
Man, did he get blindsided by Paul Tagliabue.
As the announcers say during the replays, that one is going to leave a mark.
In the name of justice, and in the name of about time, the NFL's old boss overruled the new boss Tuesday on the Bountygate suspensions of Saints players. Somebody had to do it. Goodell, the infallible czar of the NFL, was outharrumphed by Tagliabue, who used to be the infallible czar of the NFL.
If you are scoring at home, in other words, Goodell is no longer undefeated. This one he lost.
