The nomination or naming isn't necessarily a positive thing, but simply a statement that the individual in question has affected world events during the year in question - for better or for worse.
Hitler was chosen as Time magazine's Man of the Year for 1938

Its "Person of the year" you sexist mfers....

Stalin received it twice.
Hitler received it once.
Chiang Kai-shek's wife received it.


Mark Fkn Zuckerberg received it.... I find this the most disturbing and devaluing of all...

Background: obviously well connected

Goodell was born in Jamestown, New York,[4] the son of the late United States Senator Charles E. Goodell, a Republican from New York, and the late Jean Rice Goodell of Buffalo, New York. He graduated from Bronxville High School where, as a three-sport star in football, basketball, and baseball, he captained all three teams as a senior and was named the school's athlete of the year.[5] Injuries kept him from playing college football.[6] Goodell is a 1981 graduate of Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania with a degree in economics

How strange that instead of choosing the year he comes down on drugs and actual crime, they choose the year he comes down hard on something which has yet to be proven and has been moving goalposts and lying and behind all kinds of shenanigans to do with this. What a smack in the face for Saints fans.
The rest of the country does not hate you. I don't like Goddell either, but you have to admit, he has done a good job on reducing some of the concussions considering the fact that you can't elimate concussions from this game no matter what.
