Goodell: not Person of the Year 

Thumbs-down from 95 percent of online voters

  NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell — the bete noire of Black and Gold fans for his zealous pursuit of the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal — is on the cover of this week's Time magazine. Goodell grips a football with the headline "THE ENFORCER: How far will NFL commissioner Roger Goodell go to protect the game he loves?"

  Earlier this month, Time magazine put its nominees for its annual Person of the Year cover story online and asked readers to vote on them. Among the nominees: Goodell. Looks like the Black and Gold Nation isn't the only group that thinks that's a bad idea. Only 5 percent of online voters said, "Definitely," while 95 percent chimed in with "No way," putting Goodell dead last in a field of 40 candidates, directly below Super-PAC Superman Karl Rove.   The magazine's Person of the Year will be announced around New Year's Day. — Kevin Allman
