Factor in the additional money the NFL makes from merchandise, stadium revenues, co-branding, weasling out of CTE lawsuits and god knows what else....and considering as a private corporation the NFL has no stockholder overhead....and suddenly $30 million becomes chump change for a puppet CEO.

The fat cats have been otherwise pleased with Goodell. If they weren't, he'd already be gone. To them, $30 million IS cheap. Cutting Roger's salary by $20 million translates to only $625,000 in savings annually per team. Shit...they make more in nacho sales alone.

I never understood these arguments against Goodell. Most owners aren't the nicest men in the world...if they could fleece an orphan, they would. They pay Goodell what they think is reasonable. No one can twist their arm. There is no one to attack or defend. Their world is beyond our reckoning.

For all of Goodell's failings, I still can't side with that whiny douchebag Jerrah or anyone or anything related to the Cowgirls. Old hatreds must remain cultivated...


Fantastic post.

It's hard to talk about millions and billions to the general public because most do not have a frame of reference outside of thousands.

He is getting paid .000813% of the NFL's total revenues. Or he makes .81 cents for every $1000 the league earns. A night manager at a Shoney's making 45k at a 3 million revenue store makes a higher percentage of the revenues 1% before bonus.

If we are calling him the CEO of the league, in a real-world comparison CEOs, make between .1% to .4% of revenues so, he should be making between 36 and 147 million per year- so the owners are getting him at the extreme low end here- especially since he has grown the league to near oversaturation and gotten the owners a larger slice of the revenue pie. In any other CEO job, that performance would get you at least 100 million but because the league doesn't have stock options- due to their corporate status, it has to be "straight cash homie"- which goes back to the perception and frame of reference.

Regardless of what we think - he doesn't get paid by us or the players. Players and now the owners have to address his powers during the next CBA. What this Cowboys thing has shown me that the owners and the league are separate entities and how the owners make their money and govern their teams not expressly mentioned in the CBA is kind of a free for all. Meaning it looks like a RB with no real legal representation (outside of his agent) suddenly has resources (human and financial) to mount a pretty good legal defense effort?Sounds like the Pro Football version of the "booster club" to me. Saints players had trouble- they were on their own. Minnesota players on the sex boat had to settle that crap on their own. This guy comes in and is so lawyered up- I would love to see the T&E bill

Terrible post. Once again, Goodell is getting paid on par with a guy like Tim Cook. Apple complexity >>> NFL complexity. The funny thing is that it is your side being innumerate. The NFL just isn’t worth that much money. Probably a 50b-70b company. Large cap? Sure. But on the smaller side of things.

Me, too!! That's about all I cared about.

Goof wants 50m plus a jet for life.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is reportedly asking for a $49.5 million annual salary and a private jet for life in contract negotiations with league owners.

"That number for Roger just seems too much," an owner told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. "It's offensive. It's unseemly."

Goodell's latest proposal also included lifetime health insurance for his family. His current deal includes compensation of roughly $30 million per year.

The league issued a statement Sunday to deny Schefter and Mortensen's report.

"The only element of the ESPN report that is true is that there is a regularly scheduled Compensation Committee conference call on Monday," NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "There is no basis in fact for any of the other reporting. Those trying to peddle that nonsense are profoundly misinformed or deliberately trying to mislead."

In any negotiation, why would you not ask for totally outrageous stuff? They might give it to you.

Or maybe you can blow the league up with what you know about CTE....

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, makes $10M a year. Apple makes nearly $40B in profits a year.

Among the list of the highest paid CEO's last year (public companies):
10. Steve Wynn - $28M
8. Ginni Rommeti (IBM) - $32M
3. Bob Iger (Walt Disney) - $41M

It's not my money but, yeah, Goodell's request is absurd.
