WOW! Roger Goodell’s Future Uncertain As National Anthem Controversy Takes Toll On NFL
Commissioner Roger Goodell’s future with the NFL is in question as the National Anthem controversy continues to take its toll on the league.
Real Clear Life reports:
As the National Football League has struggled to come up with a game-plan to handle the controversy surrounding players who kneel in protest during the National Anthem, the issue has had a ripple effect behind closed doors.
And that includes a delay on a contract extension of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, ESPN is reporting.
“The anthem issue has overridden everything — and I do mean everything,” a source told ESPN.
That’s because total viewership has plummeted over first six weeks of the NFL season— dropping 7.5 percent compared to the same period last year season — spurred by outrage from both sides over the league handling of the #TakeAKnee movement.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has made over $212 million in salary since 2006.
Goodell is the highest paid person in the NFL.
And he’s destroying the league.

Goodell makes more than Tom Brady, Eli Manning or any other player in the league.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell took a pay cut of nearly $1 million during his tumultuous 2014-15 season, according to a new tax filing.
But with a salary of $34.1 million, he still earned more than all but one NFL player.
Only Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan took home more that season — $36.5 million, thanks to a huge signing bonus, according to salary tracker Spotrac…
…In 2013-14, Goodell earned $35 million, which was a steep cut from the $44.2 million he earned the prior year.
Overall, he has been paid $174.1 million by the league in the seven seasons for which data is available, far more than any player received in the same period…
…The NFL likely had revenue of more than $12 billion in the 2014-15 season,
And Roger Goodell is destroying the league.
The NFL is losing viewers like a sieve thanks to his weak leadership.
The NFL has lost 3.3 million viewers in two years since Colin Kaepernick first started to sit and kneel during the national anthem in protest.
And the NFL continues to lose millions in income as viewers turn off the unpatriotic sports league.
But at least NFL players are good social justice warriors today.
