Unless you are a fan of one of the losing teams that was the best weekend of football in a long time. 
even for those of us who are, that was exciting.

Best sports product in America, and it isn’t even close.  With online gambling becoming legal in more states the product is only going to get stronger.  I’m prone to hyperbole but this really does feel like the golden age of the NFL.

Dude is a scumbag. No idea why he is even paid the way he is but most his salary should be redistributed to player healthcare and taking care of them

What?  His bosses are the owners of the league.  His sole responsibility is to them.  And he does very very good job at what he is paid to do.  If you don't like his job responsibilites thats on you, but it's irrelevant to his bosses, who are the ones who decide to pay him that much.

At $63.9M his salary would be 6th if compared with the highest paid CEOs in the S&P 500
Holy crap.  How in the world did he manage that?  I'm pretty sure a donkey could succeed running the NFL.

There was an uproar in early 2015 when it was revealed his compensation for 2013 was $35M (Google “roger goodell $35M” for a slew of articles.) It was disclosed on the NFL’s tax return, which at that time was publicly released each year.

Two months later it was announced the NFL was voluntarily relinquishing its tax-exempt status. One outcome of that decision is a change in disclosure requirements. The NFL has not released their tax return or Goodell’s salary since 2015.

As reported by The NY Times, a slide was presented at the owners meeting last October which revealed Goodell earned $63,900,050 per year in each of the past two years, which means his pay was $127.8 million for fiscal years 2019-20 and 2020-21.

One note about Goodell's pay is that it's mostly made up of bonuses with more than 90% of his earnings coming from bonus money. His pay was extra high over the past two years because he helped the NFL pull off two monstrous negotiations that helped cement the future of the league. First, he got a new CBA signed in March 2020. One year later, he lined the NFL's pockets by getting the networks to agree to a new media deal that will pay out a total of $113 billion between now and 2033.

The man starts Civil Wars, he'll get no congratulations here, have you seen the end of most NFL games and officiating? 

This past weekend was a direct result of the great players and coaches, it has very little to do with Goodell but I bet if your team won this weekend you would buy the guy a case of 12-yr scotch right about now.

Somewhere in the end of that story where Goodell made $127M, some of that also has to do with Los Angeles now cementing 2 teams playing there although i don't think the Chargers will make it there long term, especially if the Rams win the Super Bowl in SoFi this year, that Stadium will never be home to the Chargers or feel like their house. 

Kroenke and the involvement of oh yes, Jerry PT Barnum Jones who was the true mastermind on getting the Rams to move back to Los Angeles, he made sure all the owners fell in line and we dog this guy all the time from his football knowledge but from a business perspective he runs laps around most of these owners. 

Jones beat up Goodell pretty good in the media several times but that's because he has him making so much bonus money that it's mostly "Yes, Mr Jones" from roger any time he gets out of line. Most of his heavy handed suspensions have disappeared with the new rules and H2H, he rarely seems to get involved these days.
