ROGER GOODELL GETS CONTRACT EXTENSION
Mon, 30 Jan 2012 10:56 PM EST

Now that the NFL has labor peace of mind for the following decade, Commissioner Roger Goodell has employment continuity thru the 2018 season. Odds

Not just did Goodell get thru one of the league’s about contentious and worrying periods – a 4½-month lockout of the players – but he oversaw a very prosperous season once a 10-year collective negotiating contract was reached. On Wed., he reaped numerous rewards himself with an agreement extension through March 2019. Scores

“It is the sole area I have ever wished to work,” Goodell said following the league’s salary committee authorized the extension.

Goodell, 52-year-old took charge of Paul Tagliabue in 2006. His unique 5-year agreement was extended in 2009. He entitled about $10 million, including bonuses, under that deal. In the lockout, he had a $1 salary.

No terms were revealed for the new agreement.

“I’m thankful for the contributions and counsel of National Football League proprietors in managing our league, the accomplished staff that supports us and the players and coaches that execute their magic on the field. It is truly a team effort,” Goodell claimed. “I am enthusiastically looking ahead to the challenge of making on our momentum and doing all we can to enhance our game for the fans and everyone that is part of our league.”

Commissioner Goodell has made players security and disciplines his main focal points, and the league has ramped up penalties and even suspensions for illegal hits. He has also got been criticized for the way in which the league dealt with retired players and with post-career health problems like brain shock ; both matters have become concerns for Goodell and the league recently.

“I speak on behalf of 32 NFL club owners in saying we are thankful to have Roger Goodell as our commissioner,” recounted Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, president of the compensation committee, which also includes owners Tom Benson (New Orleans), Pat Bowlen (Denver), Robert Kraft (New England), Jerry Richardson (Carolina), and Steve Ross (Miami). “Since becoming commissioner in 2006, the National Football League – already the front-runner in professional sports – has gotten even stronger.

“Since shown by this agreement extension, we have excellent confidence in Roger’s vision and leadership of the NFL. Our clubs, players and followers could not inquire for a better General Manager.”

Goodell began his career in pro football as an intern at the NFL office in 1982, and then worked in the New York Jets’ public relation department in 1983. He returned to the league office in 1984 in the public relations dep., and at one point was in control of handing out media references for postseason games.

Goodell worked his own way thru the ranks and was labeled executive vice president and chief operating officer by Paul Tagliabue in 2001. He supervised the league’s football operations and officiating departments, and supervised all league business roles.

When Paul Tagliabue retired in 2006, Goodell beat out a few other applicants for the position.
