Roger Goodell has made over $212 million in salary since 2006
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell talks a lot about maintaining the integrity of the game of football. It’s the reason he suspended Tom Brady and fined the Patriots a gajillion dollars. It’s why he made an example of the Saints by over-sanctioning them during Bountygate. It’s also why he suspended Ezekiel Elliot six games over accusations of a crime he was never prosecuted for.
Of course, that code is only used selectively.
Roger Goodell uses euphemism when describing teams tanking
Goodell is a walking contradiction when it comes to enforcing the laws of his league, and he is about as opaque a commissioner as there is in professional sports right now. Good luck getting him to answer a straightforward question about any decision he makes, especially if it’s controversial or of any consequence whatsoever.
He’s as slippery as a bar of soap covered in Vaseline.
