Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell went after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday.
The 10-year veteran said, “We have to do better as players when we sign the next CBA. We have to get better leadership as to who is running the league.”
Goodell has been under fire from owners as well.
Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft didn’t hold back at the beginning of last season when Tom Brady was given a four game suspension to start the 2016 season.
This year, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has stated his displeasure with Goodell.
Roger Goodell has also been under fire for his comments on concussions and his handling of players who don’t stand for the anthem.
However, on Wednesday we learned Goodell has received a five-year contract extension worth 200 million dollars.
The reason — revenues have doubled since he took over for Paul Tagliabue in 2006.
Like all things in life, this is about what makes the world go around. If that kind of money continues to roll in for owners, Goodell will continue to get his share.
