Roger Goodell is going to have to get his BBQ fix elsewhere in Miami.
Brother Jimmy’s, a restaurant in the city owned in part by Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, has signs all over it with the NFL commissioner’s face and the message: “DO NOT SERVE THIS MAN,” according to USA Today.
What caught our attention Tuesday night on Twitter was a photo of a window at Brother Jimmy’s, where a sign with Goodell’s face is taped to the glass. And in all caps surrounding the commissioner’s mug, the message reads: “DO NOT SERVE THIS MAN
An employee confirmed to USA TODAY Sports that the signs are, indeed, posted on all of the restaurant’s front windows and inside the dining room.
Brother Jimmy’s is owned by Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams, Panthers linebacker Jon Beason and Vilma, all of whom are University of Miami alums. The restaurant just opened Aug. 8, so you would think denying any customers wouldn’t be in the best interest of the fledgling business.
But given Vilma’s legal battle with the NFL to reverse his season-long suspension, we understand this exception.
No word on if this was a directive from Vilma himself.
