From the “It is good to be the King” department comes a report from YES Network.com stating that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made over 29 million dollars in 2011.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s compensation reached $29.49 million in 2011, nearly tripling his previous salary.

As reported by Sports Business Daily, NFL owners likely made Goodell the highest paid sports commissioner in American sports. Goodell’s compensation is performance-based, with $22.3 million of his total salary paid as a bonus. Information about Goodell’s salary was disclosed in the NFL’s 2011 IRS tax statement, which is public because the NFL is structured as a non-profit.

Darren Rovell reported that Goodell’s 2010 salary was $11.6 million.

Performance based? a 22.3 mil dollar bonus sounds reasonable. He put an inferior product on the field risking quality and player safety over the entire referee union looking for 16.5 mil over 5 years in a new contract.

Goodell's whole campaign that he can somehow make a collision sport safe is laughablly dangerous. Anyoen who has ever strapped on shoulder pads in Pop Warner knows it's by defintition a violent game. You know and accept those risks. But your point is even more daming. To not give NFL retirees the best medical care plan as a given with the money the NFL makes is really an obscenity. If you took,say, $28 million in 2012 you could cover a whole bunch of those guys rather than pay this dolt such a ridiculous sum.

far be it for me to defend Roger Goodell but the NFL is a 11 figure business (tens of BILLIONs with a capital b  . Guys who run those types of organizations get paid that and way more than Roger. Hundreds of Mil isn't unheard of... It's a conversation about CEO pay when you get right down to it. Whether it's Roger or whoever, that's what the head of the a business that size gets paid.

Obviously I saw it as a low blow and I'm sure most people would agree. The economy has hurt us all and we all have our horror stories but that's no reason to take a cheap shot. When the market crashed in 2008 my grandfather at Goldman was forced to defer his year end bonus and I didn't get my new car till like July, I was stuck driving around an original Hummer which was devastating. I've got nothing against the poor either. I have gardeners, I had a maid(Who I think was stealing but I'll let the pros at INS sort that out), I think I'm somehow paying the garbage people etc. etc.. People just need to learn to be more socially sensitive with the things they say and I'm happy to point it out.

I think we should minimize the impact of concussions in the NFL by having the games played on top of all those soft, cushiony poor people. Call it PoTurf. Two birds, one stone.

Outside the box thinking like that is what makes this country the greatest on earth, plus that will give all these players a job when they retire so they can stop crying to the owners that they deserve healthcare for injuries that may or may not even be football related.

did Roger Goodell even play pop warner?

 

i bet he played soccer growing up instead

 

He Captained his HS football, basketball and baseball teams.  An injury kept him from playing in college.  What did you do?

 

 

 

Goodell's whole campaign that he can somehow make a collision sport safe is laughablly dangerous. Anyoen who has ever strapped on shoulder pads in Pop Warner knows it's by defintition a violent game. You know and accept those risks. But your point is even more daming. To not give NFL retirees the best medical care plan as a given with the money the NFL makes is really an obscenity. If you took,say, $28 million in 2012 you could cover a whole bunch of those guys rather than pay this dolt such a ridiculous sum.

 

What do you expect him to do? 

 

He is trying to protect an 11 billion dollar (and growing) business. 

 

He is fighting a losing battle.  Players willingly admit that they will/have gone back into the game after a concussion.  Or throw a fit, like Jason Witten, a year ago when blocked from returning.  Yet, he is ripped by current players he is trying to protect from living a life with concussion symptoms.    All the while, of the 1200 living former NFL players, 33% are apart of the concussion law suit.  Are you sure they accept the risks?

 

I do not disagree with the your healthcare point, but where are all the player contributions for health care?  They receive in the neighborhood of 4 billion a year in salary.  If they give 5%, every year, that would dwarf what Goodell is paid yearly.  Take care of their own.  

 

I find it amusing that Goodell is ripped for an issue (concussions) Tags and Rozelle ignored or hid.
