Remember how I reported that NFL commissioner Roger Godell took home $29 million dollars in salary?
It is actually worse than that. According to NFL tax returns, in the 12 month span that ended March 31, 2013, Goodell earned $44.2 million in compensation.
Their head lawyer earned $7.86 million (with an additional $1.23 million in deferred compensation), and their executive VP came in at $4.24 million (with another $527 thousand deferred).
The NFL may have non-profit status, but their head honchos are sure making a lot of profit off of it. Somebody is making up for the taxes they don’t pay, and that somebody is you.
