Report: Goodell made nearly $30 million in 2011
 
There is no salary cap for NFL employees, and if there was, it certainly isn’t flat.

According to Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Daily, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell nearly tripled his earnings in 2011, making nearly $30 million.

The numbers come from the league’s tax return, which was scheduled to be filed today.

Goddell’s $29.49 million includes a $22.3 million bonus. He earned $11.6 million in 2010, before he brokered a 10-year labor deal (after a lockout) and new television contracts.

“The NFL is the most successful and best-managed sports league in the world,” Falcons owner and compensation committee chair Arthur Blank in a prepared statement. “This is in no small part due to Roger’s leadership and the value he brings to the table in every facet of the sport and business of the league. His compensation reflects that.”

While it seems a mammoth number, his bosses (the owners) willingly chose to give it to him.

And that should make it clear to everyone what kind of profits they’re making

$30 million a year for continuing to ruin the NFL... I don't know about yall, but I'm pulling a 5 figure salary and I'm pretty sure that I could ruin the NFL if I was in charge just as well as Goodell. Hell, I'd probably do way better than that joke of a commissioner.

And how much did it costs for the extra bodyguards he hired last year, Mary Jo, the army of lawyers, and Paul. He also lost to the refs. I would love to know that number. He had some major backfire this past year like an old yellow school bus and all the kids at the stop were laughing.
