Roger Goodell made a lot of money in 2015

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been amassed in turmoil over the last few years, but that hasn’t stopped him from making a ton of money.

The Sports Business Journal was able to obtain the league’s tax findings, and found out that Goodell made a cooL $32 million in 2015.

There’s a lot of talk about how Goodell’s salary dipped for the fourth consecutive year. He made $34 million in 2014. But let’s be honest, it’s not a huge dip, and he still made $32 million.

But could this all be a smokeshow? The league no longer has to reveal the commissioner’s earnings, and likely won’t. The NFL has given up its tax-emempt status, so Goodell’s salary for 2016 can now be kept private.

Given how horrible he and the league office handled Bountygate and Deflategate, and also all the egg left on Goodell’s face from the Ray Rice fiasco, he should be working for free.

Everyone’s talking about how he took a pay cut, but is $32 million really falling on the sword?
