    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell signed a five-year contract extension that could bring his annual salary to around $20 million by its conclusion, according to a report by the Sports Business Daily. And that's not sitting well with Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White. After news of Goodell's raise broke Monday, White tweeted: “How in the hell can u pay a man this much money that cant run tackle or catch.â€￾ … “Roger Goodell is getting over never seen anything like it 20 million for looking over the league with tremendous help I guess the NFL is banking.â€￾

    Everyone should be offended. Goodell gets paid money that hard working Americans deserve, and what does he actually do?

    Really rich athletes that get paid millions snitching that their employer makes millions. Shut the heck up. Look I am all for making money so go make money but don't EVER snitch that your boss makes more than you that is common knowledge.

    this is the funniest quote of them all ................

    “How in the hell can u pay a man this much money that cant run tackle or catch.

    hahaha............... Roddy, 'normal' people wonder every day how someone like you who ONLY knows how to catch and run can make as much money as you do ................

    now, shut the heck up Roddy and keep cashing your huge paychecks.

    I'm not the biggest Goodell fan but the guy has earned a lot of people a lot of money. So the owners award him with that salary. I don't have a problem with it.

    As for Roddy...Goodell's gonna have more of an impact on the game than White will. White will be loooooong gone before people forget about Goodell.

    That statement is true of football players also. Let the owners pay him whatever they want.

    Maybe someone should point out to Roddy that Goodell actually graduated college, has a law degree, started in the NFL as an unpaid intern, and has 30 years on the job...Roddy couldnt even graduate from the University of freaking Alabama-Birmingham.
