    REPORT: GOODELL'S SALARY TO "DOUBLE" UP TO $20M

    REPORT: GOODELL'S SALARY TO "DOUBLE" UP TO $20M

    "Roger Goodell recently received a five-year contract extension from the NFL, and
    according to a report, his salary will "double" up to $20 million annually by
    the end of the deal.

    That news comes from Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal, who also
    reports that Arthur Blank, Falcons owner and head of
    the NFL's compensation committee, said Goodell's new deal will "bring Goodell in
    line [financially] with other top sports commissioners."

    “If you compare
    [Goodell] to any of the other commissioners in other sports, we think he would
    rank very high in that group, and he needs to be compensated on that basis,”
    Blank said at the Super Bowl.

    MLB commissioner Bud Selig made $18.35
    million in 2007, per Kaplan, and has since received two contract extensions. It
    is a logical assumption that Selig is paid more than $20 million annually at
    this point.

    Goodell received $9.89 million in base salary according to
    federal tax returns filed by the NFL last year. Though we won't know the actual
    number of Goodell's new base salary until the next time the NFL files its tax
    returns (which could be as early as Wednesday), it stands to reason that Goodell
    will see a significant bump in his base, given that he received the extension
    just a few weeks ago.

    And while the response from NFL players on Twitter
    -- Falcons wide receiver Roddy White
    wondered "How in the hell can [you] pay a man this much money that cant
    run tackle or catch" -- hasn't been ideal, it's difficult to get too angry at
    what Goodell's bringing in.

    The NFL successfully navigated a potentially
    brutal lockout, came away with new television deals and is poised to continue
    growing exponentially between now and the end of Goodell's newest
    contract."

    Is the sum from a contract agreed upon by 32 owners, or is it a direct percentage of the projected revenue to be made?

    Goodell ran, tackled and caught a lot better than Roddy White in the playoffs.
