Report: Goodell made nearly $30 million in 2011 | ProFootballTalk
Way too much money if you ask me.
Hmm...good ROI right there.
Ridiculous...thats all I got to say on this topic!
It is a gross amount of money and we all have our beef with the man but when I read that it is a bonus for brokering the CBA and the new Television deals and probably his regular salary too it doesn't seem like that crazy a number. Why shouldn't he get his cut of the deal?
Goodell is doing a darn good job for the owners. He should be getting paid this sort of money.
Pretty much, yep. Peanuts compared to the raking the owners are doing thanks in part to the guy that gets them what they want and takes the heat for it.
The owners pay roughly $4,000,000,000 in player salaries.
It doesn't seem bizarre that they pay the leader of their organization less than 1% of that.
Regardless of what you think if the quality of job he is doing, the job has an exhorbitant amount of value.
I'm failing to see much of an issue here. If you want to get sick, look at Selig's old salary figures and what it included.
Nobody on this earth is worth that much....Nobody should be getting paid like that when we have kids living on the streets, when people can't afford their next meal or know where their going to sleep next. People can't afford med for their cancer/Aids treatments and die and somehow you think its justified that some makes this much?
Goodell does nothing! The players play and the coaches coach, the owners own, what does this guy do again? Nothing! He sits at a desk all day and makes 30mill a year...What a joke!:bricks:
OT: Goodell made $30 million in 2011
The guy is doing his job real well.....chump change for the lumps he takes on behalf of the guys who hired him.......if it was stern, there'd be no defense allowed, and if it was bettman, all the teams based in North Dakota would be going out of business
OT: Goodell made $30 million in 2011
He takes the heat for the owners.....everyone hates him instead of his bosses.....worth 30m in this business
Goddell runs the league. That league funnells BILLIONS of dollars into the economy which creates jobs which results in fewer people living on the streets and starving. The NFL also provides an advertising vehicle for many corporations that increases their sales, grows their business and creates more jobs and opportunities so that fewer still people are poor.
Sounds like a tinge of jealousy if you ask me. I don't bemoan highly successful people. They play the game and should be rewarded accordingly.
Goodell has earned his keep.
i see this as a giant.."who cares" issue
I don't think there is anything wrong with the commissioner getting paid that money. I just hate to think that Goodell is getting it.
You couldn't do his job.
Being a top executive requires talent and a lot of dedication. And because that talent and dedication makes a lot of money for people, it pays uncommonly well. Like it or don't, but complaining about it is sort of like yelling at a cloud.
Big business. Big revenues. Big job. Big salary for the boss.
Every dime comes out of the owners' pockets. It's their money. We can complain all we want about the job we think he is or isn't doing; if they think he's worth that much, he's worth that much.
. Is February 16th the equivalent of April Fool's Day in the States? This guy is the second-worst commissioner ever in American sports. He is only second because the NHL guy, whose name I am too lazy to google, clearly hates (Ice) Hockey.
