NFL Players Give Their Chief a Good Grade

Published December 16, 2009

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is doing an adequate job of running the league, most players agree, according to a new poll.

In its survey, Sports Illustrated found that two-thirds of the 296 players queried gave Goodell grades of either “A” or “B.” Only 3 percent of the players flunked the NFL chief.

The youngest group – players 21 to 24 years old – graded Goodell the highest; nearly three-quarters (72 percent) gave him an “A” or “B.”

“Since becoming NFL commissioner in 2006, Goodell has made perhaps his most visible imprint by implementing a personal conduct policy to bring wayward players in line, on and off the field,” according to Sports Illustrated.
