    Roger Goodell made $29 million in 2011

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/89...led-2949m-2011

    There was a time during the NFL lockout in 2011 that Roger Goodell was voluntarily earning a $1 salary. With a collective bargaining agreement eventually reached with the players, and only one preseason game missed, Goodell's compensation went up quite a bit.

    A copy obtained of the league's tax return confirms the commissioner earned $29.49 million in 2011. The league's general counsel, Jeff Pash, who also reduced his salary to $1 during the lockout, came away with $8.8 million in total compensation.

    Goodell earned $11.6 million in 2010.

    Goodell's compensation likely makes him the highest-paid commissioner in sports. Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig and NBA commissioner David Stern earn in the range of $20 million annually.

    That's ridiculous. Commissioners shouldn't be making this much, fans don't show up to see them, and especially commissioners like Goodell who are bad at their job.

    That is a slap in the face to the players. Guys like Peyton, AP and Brady sell tickets and jerseys and are the reason networks buy contracts to air the shows and they are $10 or $12 million a year. Listen to fans complain about something related to the NFL and I guarantee you that Goodell had a hand in causing it to be the way it is. The players give fans a reason to cheer and Goodell gives fans a reason to complain and he makes more than any player in the NFL. What a joke.

    It helped that he had a 950% bonus, but still that is a lot of money for a commissioner to make.

    Seems reasonable to me. If the other two make 20 million, then he should make about 30. That all adds up in terms of productivity. He is the top dog over the most popular and profitable sports league in the history of the world. Part of his job is being a disliked public figure and taking the hits. I think he deserves the pay. Look at the CEO's of any other company that is worth half of what the NFL is worth. The make hundreds of millions. It just doesnt seem like that big of a deal to me.

    You mean besides the fact he makes more than every player who destroys it's body?

    If Goodell makes $30 million, why don't player salaries get raised? Why isn't the salary cap higher?

    That's not the point. The CEO of basically any company makes more then anyone below them. They wouldn't make the money they do if not for someone like Goodell, Tagliabue, Rozell, ect. Should they also Guarentee all the contracts like baseball? It's not like these players don't know the deal when they sign up. They also get sponsorships, licensing money ect as well. None of that would be possible if not for the NFL.

    If the players feel they are underpaid then have them go start their own league.
