In the eleven years since Roger Goodell replaced Paul Tagliabue as NFL Commissioner he’s become something of a fixture in the national conversation when it comes to sports. The Commish is viewed as being nearly untouchable and his word is essentially law inside the league. Even when the concussion debate was flaring up and people were suggesting that perhaps Goodell would have to be sacrificed, it never looked like he was in any trouble.
Now, however, a series of controversies are roiling the league and Goodell may actually be on the way out just as he’s in line for a five year extension on his contract. You can tell this is getting serious because some of the team owners are talking openly about it. (ESPN)
