Goodell Extension through 2018

Postby dream_017 » Wed Jan 25, 2012 3:01 pm

Mooch was going to post this, but he was so excited to hear the news that he is on a plane to personally congratulate Roger over dinner.

abc.com wrote:NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract was extended Wednesday through the 2018 season.

The 52-year-old Goodell took over for Paul Tagliabue in 2006. His original five-year contract was extended in 2009, and the new extension runs through March 2019.

He was rewarded by the 32 clubs after one of the league's most successful seasons, even though it was preceded by a 4 1-2 month lockout that led to a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement. Goodell made about $10 million, including bonuses, in his previous deal; during the lockout, he had a $1 salary.

Shocking. A guy who punishes players, gives the game moments of befuddling suctatude with instant replays over-ruled by blind zebras and "processes." Introduce booring laywer to be a central and way to oft heard member of broadcast teams gets paid by owners. I don't see that Goodell is that much different than Stern, Calyxes, seems he is a bit of a copy cat. Rookie salary cap, personal conduct codes (NBA dress code) etc. Bah, sour grapes on my part. Football is great, Goodell is mediocre, I am bitter :-{
Same as it ever was. :-b

I wish the NFL commissioners job had nothing to do with labor negotiations.

Here is the year end message that was sent from Goodell:

To NFL Fans:


Now that another remarkable NFL season has concluded, let me express my gratitude on behalf of all 32 NFL teams for your incredible support. Record numbers of you watched at home, made your way to the stadium, and connected with the NFL in numerous other ways during the 2011 season. Your love of football is what makes the NFL special.

We are proud of the quality of the game today. From the individuals and team skills on display in every game to the record-breaking achievements of future Hall of Famers, the 2011 season was extraordinary on many levels.

It finished up with some of the most exciting playoff games of recent years leading to a tense, drama-filled Super Bowl between the Giants and Patriots that was the most-watched show in the history of television. What a tribute to our players, coaches, and fans!

As good as it’s been, I believe the NFL’s best days are ahead. Our responsibility in leading the league is to protect and enhance the bond between our game and the passionate fans who sustain it. We know we have to earn your trust every day and prove we are worthy of your amazing support.

Our commitment to improve everything we do is ongoing. We are not done yet. From the game on the field to the fan experience at home -- and everything in between -- there are ways we can do even better. We owe it to you, the fans, to believe in better and strive for more. Our game has always evolved and that will continue. I encourage you to visit our new web site – [url]NFL.com/evolution[/url] – to explore how the game has improved over the past century. There are more good changes to come.

Our mission is captured very simply in these four words:
Forever forward. Forever football. Thank you once again for your passion and commitment to the game we all love.


Roger Goodell

LOL so exasperated by the news, I just now realized you posted this. :-b

Roddy White asks: How the hell can Goodell get paid so much?

Falcons receiver Roddy White saw Florio’s item about the salary of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and suffice to say White doesn’t think the commissioner should be making more money than most players make.

White wrote on Twitter that he doesn’t see how a non-player can be raking in $10 million now, with a deal that will pay him nearly $20 million a year by 2019.

“How in the hell can u pay a man this much money that cant run tackle or catch,” White wrote. “Roger Goodell is getting over never seen anything like it 20 million for looking over the league with tremendous help I guess the NFL is banking.”

White added, “the players make this league dont ever forget that.”



Rest of article:
Roddy White asks: How the hell can Goodell get paid so much?

Athletes are always more likeable until they open their mouths. How a veteran in this league cannot understand why the commissioner makes more money they he does it beyond me.

Like him or hate him, Goodell put the pieces in place for one of the most lucrative NFL seasons ever. Hey Roddy - without the commish, you wouldn't be getting your $10M per year. And that's a fact.
