Roger Goodell Makes $35 Million Running A Non-Profit

Roger Goodell made $35 million running a small non-profit known as the National Football League in 2013. For those who don’t know about it, the league, commonly referred to as the “NFL,” is a professional American football league in which players try to avoid getting “tackled,” or taken down, before they reach the goal zone.

Goodell’s compensation is down from $44 million in 2012, but it still makes him “one of the highest paid chief executives in America,” according to The New York Times. For comparison’s sake, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein made $23 million in 2013, so, yeah.

..

The NFL is technically a non-profit trade organization, which is the reason it remains tax-exempt. But the league is pulling in $10 billion a year now, and politicians have calculated that the league avoids paying millions in taxes every year as a result of its non-profit status.

He also said that opting not to have children at all is “a selfish choice.”

A society that “views children above all as a worry, a burden, a risk, is a depressed society,” Francis said.
