Saints Fan Wearing Free Sean Payton Shirt Gets Picture with Roger Goodell
by Jillian Firnhaber
Many New Orleanians have spent their showers dreaming up what they’d say to Roger Goodell if they ran into him on the street. One Saints fan got a chance to go face-to-face with the Commish, and he has the picture to prove it. Known only as 2009ring on SaintsReport.com, a local man got a picture with Goodell, wearing none other than one of the immensely popular “Free Sean Payton” T-shirts. (Dirty Coast edition, for those keeping score at home.)

Since the moment that news of the penalties came down (or was it the T-shirts that came out of the presses first?), the Free Sean Payton movement has swept Who Dat Nation. With the appeals of Payton and Saints GM Mickey Loomis set to be heard by nefarious NFL nabob Roger Goddell today, it seems as good a day as any for the Free Sean Payton rally song to come into its own. Or, at least, 5-Star and T-Bone hope so. Click through to hear.
Sean Payton Has the Congas to Prove He's a Parrothead
FRENCH QUARTER -- As Jimmy Buffett's "Free Sean Payton" shirt indicated Sunday night, the the Saints Head Coach does not currently enjoy the right to roam the sidelines. Buffet reiterated the Saints situation by dedicating the song "Limbo" to Payton. But as Buffett sang while Payton played the congas, "If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane." To the delight of Parrotheads who made it into Woldenberg Park, and even those who were turned away, Payton surfaced on the Big Dance Concert Series stage last night for Buffett's Final Four weekend closer.
