Roger Goodell spoke with media today at the Super Bowl. During the session, he briefly addressed the controversial non-call during the NFC Championship Game.

It is safe to say that animosity the New Orleans Saints and their fans have for Goodell and the NFL isn't going away any time soon. In fact, Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, who has been quite outspoken in the 10 days since the game, flat out called Goodell a liar.

At his press conference, Goodell tried to sympathize with the grievances of the Saints and their fans. He stated that he spoke with Sean Payton and some players.

“We understand the frustration of the fans,” Goodell said. “I’ve talked to Coach Payton, the team, the players. We understand the frustration they feel right now and we certainly want to address that.”

Thomas is saying that didn't happen.

Now, maybe Goodell just didn't speak with Thomas himself, but did speak with some representatives from the Saints.

Whatever happened, it doesn't seem like the commissioner will want to travel to the Big Easy any time soon.
