Hanging a man in effigy is one thing, but denying him access to the full spread of your city's famous culinary offerings? Well, that's just downright cold, New Orleans.

No matter whether it damages the upstanding rep of Southern hospitality, there are at least 10 establishments in New Orleans that refuse to serve NFL commissioner Roger Goodell any food or drink this week. Eater.com has been compiling a running list of restaurants and bars that are closed to the commish. They include noted sports bar Finn McCool's and fried chicken favorite Coop's Place.

Here's a slideshow of some of the more creative "keep out!" signs.

The local eateries, of course, are still steamed over Goodell's actions during the New Orleans Saints' "Bountygate" scandal and blame the commissioner for the team's playoff-less season.

For his part, Goodell responded to his less-than-ideal reception with good humor during his big press conference on Friday afternoon.

"I couldn't feel more welcomed here," Goodell said. "I had a float in the Mardi Gras parade. We have a voodoo doll."

He then got serious, acknowledging the Saints' big role in the return of the city post-Katrina and giving a big nod to the team's dedicated fans.

"The last couple of nights, I've been out with a lot of the people I worked with after the Katrina tragedy and we all reflected on how well we worked together ... I understand the fans' loyalty is to the team. They had no part in this (bounty scandal). They were completely innocent. I support their passion."

If not their reservation policies.
