Default Goodell Paid $44 Million In 2013

Hearty congratulations to Roger Goodell - it is indeed good to be King

N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell was paid $44.2 million last year, making him among the best-paid executives in the country and perhaps the highest paid leader of a nonprofit organization.

The amount of Goodell’s compensation for the fiscal year that ended last March 31 increased about 50 percent compared with the previous year, largely because of a bonus and pension payment of $9.1 million that he deferred two years ago after a labor dispute between the league and its players....

While Goodell’s pay is a sliver of the roughly $10 billion that the league generates annually, it dwarfs payments to leaders of other nonprofits, highlighting the incongruity of the N.F.L., the United States’ largest sports league, having such status.

In 1966, when the N.F.L. agreed to merge with the American Football League, Congress gave the N.F.L. certain antitrust exemptions and the same benefits as business trade groups and chambers of commerce not organized for profit. The National Hockey League, the Ladies Professional Golf Association and other sports groups have similar status.

But even some of the largest nonprofit groups paid their executives far less. The chief executive of the American National Red Cross, with revenue of $3.1 billion, or about a third as much as the N.F.L., was paid $630,000 last year.

Goodell’s pay was large when stacked against for-profit businesses, too. According to Equilar, a compensation research company, the median salary for chief executives at companies listed on the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index was $9.7 million, less than one-quarter of what Goodell was paid last year....

Nonprofit status is typically given to groups that deliver services that private sector companies are unwilling or unable to provide, said Ken Berger, the president and chief executive of Charity Navigator, the largest charity evaluator in the United States. The N.F.L.'s stretches that definition, he said.

“The idea that a person becomes a multimillionaire running a nonprofit that is supposed to provide a service that can’t be provided by the market is absurd,” Berger said. “The notion that every taxpayer is subsidizing an organization whose leader is making $30 million or more is a waste.”

Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma, has tried to gather support for a bill that would strip the N.F.L. and other professional sports leagues of their nonprofit status, but lawmakers, especially those from states with N.F.L. teams, have been reluctant to add their names to his legislation.


http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/15/sp...tml?ref=sports

As the article notes, $9.1 million of Goodell's 2013 payday was for compensation deferred from the 2011 lockout season.

With regard to where that came from, during the 2011 lockout the NFL put out this sad story on how much Roger was going to be personally hurt by a lockout

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and league general counsel Jeff Pash are slashing their salaries to $1 each during the lockout.

Goodell and Pash promised in January they would take salary cuts if there was a work stoppage.


http://www.tsn.ca/nfl/story/?id=357742

Of course the idea Goodell was actually going to end up being paid $1 in salary for 2011 because he needed to be personally accountable and share the pain for the lockout was nonsense. Today's story simply confirms that was all PR spin for the particularly gullible.

No question - so does the CEO of Walmart

Michael T. Duke, the chief executive of Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer with sales of about $470 billion, was paid $20 million.

And the CEO of JP Morgan Chase

JPMorgan Gives CEO Dimon 74% Raise to $20 Million in 2013

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-0...-for-2013.html

As the article states, $44 million to the CEO of a tax exempt organization with $10 billion in revenues is pricey even by the standards for compensation to CEOs of U.S. corporations and nonprofit trade groups

[E]ven some of the largest nonprofit trade groups paid their executives far less. The chief executive of the American Petroleum Institute, for instance, was paid $5.6 million, according to the latest government filings.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/15/sp...tml?ref=sports

Being the chief in-house lawyer for the NFL also is a pretty good gig

The N.F.L.’s filing next week will also show that Jeff Pash, the league’s general counsel, was paid $7.86 million in 2012


http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/15/sp...tml?ref=sports

That puts him in the neighborhood with the most highly compensated general counsels of much larger corporations which are, at least theoretically, not tax exempt.

A compensation breakdown for the top 100 in-house earners.

Just like those small town, ticket writing police forces; 95% of his money comes from fining players. Charity my azz...

Good ol rog tried to force the Rooney's to sell the team to billion air drukenmiller and is probably sucking the shit stains out of jimmy haslams underwear as we speak.

Dan Rooney probably doesn't even clear two million a year as him and his son are swamped in loans to purchase majority.

In the meantime, all these other dickhead owners don't even blink when they pay a head coach four million a year just to fire them.

Wait til the new television money and expansion to Europe kick in. In 15 years, good ell will be able to buy the Dallas cowboys with cash.

God, I hate Goodell!

I know that comment brings zero to the conversation. I just can't help myself.

Just shows you how much money the sport is making and how silly they are when they tried to mess with it every time CBA was expired. Among the 4 major sports, it seems only Selig is getting it.
