I think a few players might be annoyed by that.

I am too, mainly because I really hate ole inconsistent east coast Rog.

He works for the owners. The players have nothing to do with it. Personally, i'll never complain about how much somebody makes. If there's somebody willing to pay it, then good for him.

I'm not huge fan of Goodell, but the man runs a Multi-Billion dollar company. How much do you think he's going to make? 100,000? I mean let's be serious here. People are paid commiserate to their value. The NFL has a very high value and he's basically the CEO. He's going to make bank, and so will the next guy and the guy after that, as long as the league remains as successful as it is.

To JSeahawks- Of course it has nothing to do with the players, but I highly doubt they view it that way. More my point there. I'm annoyed they are paying him that much. It's mostly irrational of course. I should probably be just as annoyed when players make huge sums of money too by that logic.

To Kidhawk- Since when does thinking 30 million is an awful lot equal thinking he should make waaaaaay less. Obviously it's just hyperbole but c'mon. Part of it is that is was the lockout year when he took his ole $1 salary thing. I mean every knew it was more of just a gesture and he'd do just fine, but still, 30 million? That's the biggest thing.

I don't know the going rate of CEO's these days and I'm sure plenty make a hell of a lot more than him, but it strikes me as funny to see him make that much in the lockout year. He made about 11 million the previous year.

I smelled something funny, so I clicked on this thread. I then realized that funny smell was the jealousy of bitter people who want to be millionaires.

If that guy making $29 million a year is Roger Goodell, then yes.

Personally I don't like the MF... but obviously his 32 bosses must love him... hey, if your board of directors incentivised you with a $30 million dollar salary+bonus to do what they wanted you to do... would you? Would you give a flying sh!t what the public thought of you? Would you let anything (baring anything significantly illegal) get in your way of accomplishing their directive?

Not me folks!

Uh, he only said he'd do that if we missed any real football. We didn't.

I see the CEO analogy being brought up a lot. Do we really think this guy is as crucial to the NFL's success as, say, Bezos is to Amazon's?

I don't really have an issue with Goodell and think he's mostly unfairly maligned. He's nowhere near as bad as the guy running the NBA, but I'm just skeptical about how much value he personally adds to the NFL over the best alternative.

The thing is, it doesn't really matter what fans think he's worth. Look at any corporation that is valued where the NFL is valued and find out how much they pay the guy running their business, and I'm sure you'll find that $29 million isn't nearly as much as it sounds, especially when you figure in the fact that these guys are likely pulling in a lot of stock options along with their salaries. The important thing is what the 32 owners feel he's worth, and like him or not, the owners pay him what they believe he is worth.

So basically every team pays him $1million for his job of making them part of the most profitable professional league in this country and for being in charge of making their teams increase in value hundreds of millions over the past few years........

I have no problem with the commissioner of the NFL making that much. Doesn't mean I like him / dislike him just saying that the salary is in my mind ok for his job when I break it down on a per team cost.......

That's pretty rich coming from the guy that is jealous of what the average American union worker makes!

Lol - I'm not sure what the average American union worker makes, but am I jealous of someone making 6 figures doing a job you can spend a month training any average high school graduate to do for $13/hr? Yes. I'd love to make triple what I do now for the same job. Who wouldn't? EVERYONE would take a 300% raise overnight for the same thing they're doing now. That doesn't mean I think it's right, or ethical, or sustainable. Do you want the guy making your burger at McDonald's to make $30/hr? Also, I had the opportunity to be a King County Metro bus driver, but I declined it. (A little over 8 years ago.) I was invited to the training program after an interview, but ended up taking my current job, instead.
