What is the job description of the NFL commissioner? I just did some research on this question, and came up with.... If you look at the NFL Bylaws, you will find his job description starting on page 28, and it says the "League shall select and employ a person of unquestioned integrity" whose job is to: 1. Help resolve disputes among management, players, officials, and employees of the NFL. 2. Discipline employees for misconduct (the disciplinary action can include fines and suspensions). 3. Maintain facilities needed to conduct the business of the NFL (e.g., the league office). 4. Take legal action against people who are engaging in behavior detrimental to the NFL. 5. Select, manage, and pay officiating crews. 6. Run a public relations department, and oversee the broadcasting rights to games.
