Roger Goodell has only a 39% approval rating from NFL players

  • Jim Racalto

In a recent poll conducted by USA Today, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell netted a dismal 39% approval rating from the players, whereas 61% disapproved of the job he has done. This comes as no surprise to me, as I have always been an outspoken critic of Goodell’s hypocritical agendas under the flag of “player safety.” But my opinion doesn’t matter, so I am glad the NFL players share the same sentiment in an overwhelming fashion.

James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who may be the most vocal of any player in the league in criticizing Roger Goodell, had this to say after the poll numbers were made public:


Harrison has been openly critical of Goodell over the years

“I feel like what he’s doing is not totally for the safety of players.  A lot of stuff they’ve done, (such as) fining guys crazy amounts of money for helmet-to-helmet hits and all that and saying you’re doing this for the safety of players. But yet you want to add extra games to the regular season. In the true interest of player safety, I would have no issue with it. But that’s not what it’s about. It’s about money. Who hired Roger Goodell?”

Amen, Deebo.
