Being the commissioner of a professional sports organization is not an easy job, just ask NFL commish Roger Goodell. Every NFL Draft, year after year, the man is booed mercilessly by fans for reasons that range from him having too much power to simply because they can boo him.
Earlier this afternoon, however, Goodell pushed back. Appearing at the podium in casual street clothes, he told the booing crowd to “bring it on” and even welcomed the booing!
Check out video of Goodell’s actions below!
Impressive, Roger. Very impressive indeed.
Then again, one needs to have a thick skin in order to hold a job like that of the NFL Commissioner, so Goodell is probably used to the boos at this point. Just the same, the fact that Goodell took a page from former NBA Commissioner David Stern’s books and welcomed the boos that openly is pretty badass.
