I agree with Roddy, Goodell is overpaid and a lousy commish. A lot of people on this board could do his job as well as him.


You might not like his policies or how he has meted out punishments but his stewardship of the NFL from a leadership and revenue standpoint are well worth the money he is getting paid, IMO.

I think Roddy White's whining/jealousy on "the boss" getting paid so much more than he gets paid is just that - whining and jealousy. In Roddy White's world, only those who run, catch or tackle should make millions of dollars. That ignorant and childish view belies his own childish ignorance on the subject. Just in case the story of his nearly going bankrupt in his rookie year but being saved by his mom stealing his credit cards wasn't indicative enough, of course. :thumbsup:

I think it's both sad and laughable that the ability to run, tackle or catch is what justifies being paid millions of dollars these days.


Exactly.

According to Roddy, someone who can run and catch a ball is worth millions. But someone who can successfully run and operate a multi billion dollar business isn't.

Perfect example of what is wrong with our society today.

They should make Roddy take over Goodell's duties for a couple days....like a reversed "Undercover Boss" deal without the disguises.....I'd love to see that....

hand over the NFL to a guy who's mom had to hide his credit cards from because he was so bad at managing his finances and was broke?

why do you hate the NFL so much?
:P

hahahaha, wow. if you actually feel like that you have no clue what goes on in the business world.

now I don't agree with everything Goodell does. player celebrations being fined and some other stuff, but overall, he is a good commish and has expanded the game into more avenues than before. he deserves alot of credit for that

Exactly.

You may not like the way he dishes out punishment and discipline. However, there is absolutely no denying the phenomenal job he has done running the NFL as a business. The expansion of viewership and profitablity under his watch has been outstanding.

Unlike many commishioners in the past, he is a buinessman....and is effectively running the league like the multi billion dollar business that it is.

I'd like to see Roddy White do what Goodell does on a daily basis. Its always funny to me when someone who catches a ball for a living criticizes a guy who actually uses some intellect to earn his paycheck.

Exactly how would you say he's made this sport more marketable than it already was? Aside from handicapping football players from playing a full contact sport...
