NFL fans hate the league’s commissioner because they know that he is the owner’s stooge. They sighed with despair that bordered on indifference when he signed a new deal until 2027. They’re paying him more money to do what the owners want but he doesn’t care about the sport.
Yes, he brought millions to the league through endorsement deals. But it has also become an unwatchable product under his watch. For example, Goodell enraged Philly fans in 2023 because he wanted to remove the ‘Tush Push.’ Meanwhile, there have been more scandals during his tenure than any other (via Distractify).
