In a recent article by ESPN it was reported that:

A copy obtained of the league's tax return confirms the commissioner earned $29.49 million in 2011.

Wow. That is a TON of money. The question that presents itself with this overwhelming statistic is Roger Goodell really worth it? You know, I think so. I've given Roger Goodell a ton of flack over the last few years, but the NFL is one of the most well-managed and successful business enterprises in the world. Even though some may argue that the sport is being "watered down" by Roger Goodell, I think he's doing an excellent job of managing the league and rapidly increasing its popularity while preserving it to make it last. So congrats Mr.Goodell, you've earned your paycheck.

Your thoughts?
