    We Are Part of a Multi-Billon Dollar Product

    From Yahoo sports: "The tax return for the year ending last March 31 showed Goodell made $9,759,000, of which $2.9 million was salary and $6.55 million bonus and incentive compensation....Compensations listed for other top officials included executive vice president of media Steve Bornstein ($7,478,000). executive vice president and general counsel Jeff Pash ($4,845,000), executive vice president business ventures Eric Grubman ($4,453,000), executive vice president public relations and government relations Joe Browne ($1,741,000), executive vice president football operations Ray Anderson ($1,158,000) and chief financial officer Anthony Noto ($853,000). Tagliabue received $3,195,000."

    It is reassuring to know our ticket prices, jersey and other product sales, cable TV costs, TV advertising and stadium support deals etc goes to such a worthwhile cause and that we are part of supporting "the greater good" and are truly part of something much bigger than us. Your comments?

    LOL, Don't tell Obama, he'll find a way to limit compensation.

    But seriusly, does the commish really need to make that much? Wouldn't he be happy with a million?

    Perhaps the real question is do we as fans get our money's worth. Would our time be better spent supporting ourselves, our families, our own projects, initiatives, versus relying on our fantasy identifications with atheletes? Why do we need TV sports anyway?

    Is it really worth complaining about something you get for free (on TV) and presumably enjoy.  You don't have to buy anything you don't want to.  The only reason you do is because those guys you listed have a very good product that you like.  It's not for "the greater good", it's for thier own good.  If you don't like that than I don't what to tell you comrade.

    We don't need sports, no doubt the most efficient way to spend your time is on things that improve your position in life.  But if you never take any leisure time you may go crazy and kill everyone.  And then you'll end up in prison with nothing to do, except maybe watch sports.

    Agreed.  Most things I spend money on are worthless.  The NFL comes free and is better than all of them.  Give Tagliabue more money!

    I have no issue with the guy making money on what is basically a free entertainment for us (by free I mean you don't need to go to games or buy merch but you chose to if you have a little extra cash). The only thing I don't like is how they just got a raise and now plan on ging to whine to the players union about how they can't afford to raise the cap giving bigger contracts because the funds are not there. The new raise is really going to hurt talks and might lead to a strike. I really wish that the commish thought about this and took a 15% base pay reduction with an additional 30% incentive base increase to help with the union talks.

    Nothing is completely free. We all pay for it in higher advertising costs we pay via our car payment, higher liqour prices, higher state taxes to finance stadiums and higher prices for sports equipment. Most of all, we pay for it EMOTIONALLY. We support players, owners, NFL administration all of which have higher status than us. We get to go home fromt the sports bar wearing our team shirt wishing we were our favorite player or coach. They get money, power and status; we get fantasies and dreams. We manufacture their greatness. What do we get: relief from boredom and unfulfilled dreams.
