Roddy White: Roger Goodell overpaid - mdrake34 - 02-14-2012 01:37 PM
How do we pay YOU so much money Roddy? You had a little problems with that catching thing last year. Also, enjoy the offseason and STFU.
Roger Goodell reportedly will make $20 million per season by the end of his current contract. That figure set off Falcons receiver Roddy White, who posted his displeasure Monday at the commissioner's salary on his Twitter account.
“Roddy White How in the hell can u pay a man this much money that cant run tackle or catch.” -- Roddy White tweet on Roger Goodell's salary
"How in the hell can u pay a man this much money that cant run tackle or catch," White wrote, posting a link to a ProFootballTalk.com story which referenced the Sports Business Journal's report on Goodell's compensation.
"Roger Goodell is getting over never seen anything like it 20 million for looking over the league with tremendous help I guess the NFL is banking," he continued. "The NFL is not a company it's a nonprofit organization that makes a lot of profit."
When one of White's followers pointed out that Goodell is running the biggest sports league in the country, White took offense.
"Thats the stupidest thing i have ever heard the players make this league dont ever forget that," he wrote.
Several NFL players took shots at Goodell during the NFL's lockout but criticism of the commissioner since last summer's labor agreement hasn't been as frequent.

White, who signed a six-year, $50 million extension with the Falcons in 2009, isn't shy to voice his opinion on Twitter. In 2010 he apologized after ripping the Saints and the city of New Orleans in a series of tweets.
Interestingly, Falcons owner Arthur Blank is the chairman of the NFL compensation committee that approved Goodell's extension through the 2018 season.
One of White's followers asked the receiver in a tweet if he expected to be fined for questioning Goodell's salary.
"I hope not im praying not i need my money," he wrote.

Roddy White is a fucking idiot
How in the world do people make money in this world that cant run, tackle, or catch? Wow. Ask Arthur Blank that question. Ask Donald Trump that question. Ask Bill Gates that question.

We need to have an intern look over EVERYTHING that dumbass says. Seriously, this organization doesn't need this type of attention. He needs to be taking balls out of a juggs machine, and stay as far away from computers and cell phones as possible.

I remember during the lockout Roddy was Tweeting to Chad Ochocinco about how Capitalism sucked. Yea... it sucks when you aint getting PAID. Roddy is an un-educated, illiterate bone-head. His drops this past season are a result of him not taking his job seriously, not focusing.
Roddy White to Jedi Falcon (via Twitter) : I got more money than a ma fucker I can kick back and never have to work again.

Roddy White is a fucking Doosh Bag and the only reason he matters to me is that he is on the Falcon roster.

Saw this on ESPN while in the gym and did an immediate facepalm................
As much as I am against the idea of getting rid of Roddy, when he says shit like this he makes me think twice about it.
