Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

goodellAs an amateur yet enthusiastic historian armed with the luxury of hindsight, I can conclude that John Paul Jones would have made one helluva NFL commissioner.

goodellSo Drew Brees, recent practitioner of the pass into triple-coverage, this week used Paul Tagliabue's Solomonic decision to vacate the Bountygate player suspensions to milk the public's disdain of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Drew, old buddy, a pretty smart guy once told me that when you point a finger at somebody, you still have three fingers pointing back at you, thumb notwithstanding.

goodellNFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who is reviled in New Orleans as the BP of sports executives, took a big step toward mollifying his critics last week. Or did he? On Friday, Goodell asked his former boss, Paul Tagliabue, to step into his old shoes and oversee the appeals of current and former Saints players in the Bountygate imbroglio.

jim-millerWe have all heard suggestions that we should take some time off now and then. And just as frequently, we usually thank the one who suggested it as we plow forward with whatever task, job or mission that consumes us. But the past two weeks have convinced me that a little time off isn't a bad thing.
