We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

The job duties ? you mean like standing on the field for super bowls, and when your legs get tired heading on up to the owners booth where you can grab ass with celebrities and ex-players as you chow down on a steak from Mortons ?
Yeah, you should get 30 million a year for these strenuous activities
Sounds reasonable, Im sure Goodell is working extra hard and doesn't have " people/employees " that do all the leg work
No doubt he is busting his ass 24/7, and deserves every penny
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Carl pavano followed Hamptons plan to perfection
He's actually protecting the league from itself and players/fans fail to recognize it.
The fines and rule changes are preemptive measures because players are blaming the league for hurting each other. If they can't protect themselves, the league has to, but in order to do so there has to be a league.
You can't blame the league for the poor condition of former players on one hand then blame the league for trying to minimize the ability of current players to put themselves in such poor condition on the other.
Charlie Weis. 18M to GTFO. how bad must one suck. Chizik not far behind.
and this sums up how little you know
Carry on, you clearly don't get it
Damn dude. Relax for a change. Goodell is doing his job and apparently performing pretty well, otherwise, he doesn't make that kind of money. Is 29.4 million too much to pay someone, hell yes it is but if his contract is laid out that way then it is what it is. He's also done more to make the game safer (maybe too much so) but since he is the residing NFL commish then he is at the center of all the former players and lawyers cross hairs.
Now, do I feel bad for the players suffering from the concussions, hell yes I do. Did they know the possibilities of that happening before they ever set foot on the field for an NFL team? Yep.
Sport salaries in general are just retarded to me, but goodells is assenine
Relax for a change ? Im relaxed, its just how I post
He has done nothing to make the game safer, only worse
The game is always gonna be dangerous so long as grown men on steroids are allowed to collide and tackle each other
So people that work in possibly dangerous environments, like say roofers or electricians, are just up shvt's creek?
Of course football is potentially dangerous, but for the guys that really need medical assistance, it should be there for them. Nothing more.
As for Rog, he's like a lawyer for the mob. A puppet imo.
So eliminating the helmet to helmet hits (amongst many other safety rule changes) isn't making the game safer? Goodell is at least trying to make that happen (something no former commish has ever done). It's not Goodells fault that the NFL's current and past players weren't and aren't taught the proper form of tackling. Too many players in the game today have no damn clue how to wrap and tackle. They all want to throw a shoulder or helmet in there looking for the big hit that will get them on Sportscenter. The players themselves have brought all this on. Too many people are taking the cheap, bandwagon way of piling on Goodell because he's the man in charge. It's just like the rest of the country, whine, cry, bitch and moan and blame someone else.
That's about the response I was expecting from a flaming troll like yourself. Keep up the good work kiddo.
And your response was what I was expecting from you..... cause I have long known you to be a total fool on just about anything related to football, pro or college
Remember when Mario wore the Texas helmet ?
The players have retirement packages just like a lot of other industries. Don't fall into the trap like some others that believe once the players retires or can't compete well enough to make a team are left abandoned. I doubt it's that way. Maybe instead of buying cars, jewelry, guns etc etc while they are still earning a very good paycheck they should be smart enough to look at life after football.
I think I heard that stern and selig also made over 20 mil last year

Yeah its mentioned on the article
Stick to trolling, serious arguments lessen your board value
well that proves it, you clearly have no clue what you are talking about
And know nothing in terms of how badly ex-players are screwed over, not all of them blow their money on cars and jewelry
lolz at how ignorant you are to the real issues these players face just a few years after their careers are over
Selig sucks, epic d-bag
You're still the biggest candy ass troll on this network. Always have been, always will be. You get owned and revert back to your notes of who upset poor little nova and try and change the subject. Suck it up buttercup. If you can't carry on a discussion and stick to the topic, which you have rarely ever done, then maybe you should take up knitting or something more suited to your "softer" side.
Coming from a poster that has zero board value altogether
If only your opinion mattered to me
No opinions, facts mang.
literally all of that was a fail
You are either mad that Texas is falling into the depths of hell while Texas A&M is taking over the state
Or you still think Mario Edwards will pick Texas, I can't figure it out but clearly you are pissed about something
If yellow, laughing, rolling heads were the gold standard of posting you would still suck. Sorry brah
