There is no salary cap for NFL employees, and if there was, it certainly isn’t flat.

According to Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Daily, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell nearly tripled his earnings in 2011, making nearly $30 million.

The numbers come from the league’s tax return, which was scheduled to be filed today.

Goddell’s $29.49 million includes a $22.3 million bonus. He earned $11.6 million in 2010, before he brokered a 10-year labor deal (after a lockout) and new television contracts.

“The NFL is the most successful and best-managed sports league in the world,” Falcons owner and compensation committee chair Arthur Blank in a prepared statement. “This is in no small part due to Roger’s leadership and the value he brings to the table in every facet of the sport and business of the league. His compensation reflects that.”

While it seems a mammoth number, his bosses (the owners) willingly chose to give it to him.

And that should make it clear to everyone what kind of profits they’re making.

WOW. No wonder the players hate this guy. I even do.

No way in fucking hell does this guy deserve a salary of this magnitude.

But I guess it is in line with America today where the CEO gets all the cash for overseeing slave labor.

Roger Goodell made $29.49 million in 2011

NFL owners nearly tripled Commissioner Roger Goodell’s compensation in '11, paying him $29.49M and likely making him the top paid commissioner in sports, Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal reports. The figure is in the league’s tax return, which the NFL is scheduled to file with the IRS by the end of the day Friday. Most of the pay is in the form of a $22.3M bonus, a compensation structure that will continue into the future. Goodell’s pay is now more closely tied to his performance and not largely derived from a set salary, which was $3.12M in '11. He earned $11.6M total in '10.

Goodell in '11 helped ink a 10-year labor deal and lucrative new TV contracts, so it is unclear if this '11 pay reflects a high water mark of sorts. Goodell’s aim is to dramatically increase NFL revenues, so if he is successful, it then stands to reason his compensation would remain in the mid- to high-$20M range. The NFL declined to comment on the information in the tax return, which by law it must make available if requested. The return covers the '11 season.

“The NFL is the most successful and best-managed sports league in the world,” said Falcons Owner and Compensation Committee Chair Arthur Blank in a prepared statement. “This is in no small part due to Roger’s leadership and the value he brings to the table in every facet of the sport and business of the league. His compensation reflects that.”
