Roger Goodell Is Overpaid and Roddy White Isn’t Happy

Roger GoodellEver wonder how much the Commissioner of the National Football League makes? If you have, you probably shouldn’t because the amount is high enough to make you wanna puke. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that the current NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, makes a lot of money, but it was recently reported by Football Talk that Goodell, by the year 2019, will be making a staggering $20 million a year.

If flames are currently shooting out of your nostrils, smoke is coming from your ears and you have officially blown your lid, don’t worry because you aren’t the only one. Wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons Roddy White also isn’t too pleased with the salary of Goodell and has taken to Twitter to express his discontent.

White’s tweets basically came together saying, “How in the hell can you pay a man this much money, that can’t run or tackle or catch? 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. The NFL is not a company, it’s a nonprofit organization that makes a lot of profit.”

Granted, we do live in a Capitalist society where, if you can achieve it, you can make as much money as possible, even if that amount is enough to feed a third-world country for the next 20 years. In addition, it isn’t like White is underpaid, as the wide receiver just signed a 6-year contract with the Falcons worth $48 million.

I think what it boils down to is that everybody in the NFL (and all of sports for that matter), whether they be suit-wearing businessmen or helmet-wearing players, is overpaid. I mean let’s be honest, how does the NFL really benefit society? I’m not saying we should get rid of it or anything, I’m just saying maybe we need to reevaluate how much we pay people to play a game for 5 to 6 years.

Despicable Green Room Demands from Nicki Minaj

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Nicki MinajNicki Minaj is NOT someone I would refer to as an artist or a performer. I stretch both those words when I talk about Lady Gaga simply for the fact that I would fear for my life if I didn’t. Minaj, however, doesn’t deserve either. I personally believe she is trying to cash in on the eccentricity that has been made famous by Gaga and is nothing more than a poser.

That being said, I recently discovered what the so-called “artist” demands for her green room before every show. First off, Minaj demands 12 bottles of Martinelli’s Apple Juice and also requires that six of the bottles be room temperature and the other six be iced.

It has also been reported that Minaj’s favorite piece of fried chicken (insert stereotypical joke here) is the wing. That being the case, Minaj demands that there be “lots of wings” in her THREE 12-piece buckets of spicy fried chicken. Yeah, that’s right, Minaj demands three buckets of chicken which, for those of you keeping score at home, equals 36 pieces of chicken. People around the world are starving and this psycho is asking for 36 pieces of chicken.

As if that wasn’t enough, this ADHD “performer” also demands dried cranberries, raw almonds and 24 bottles of Dasani Water, 12 room temperature and 12 iced. Her breakfast demands are just as extravagant, consisting of egg whites scrambled hard (whatever that means), turkey bacon fried hard (again with the hard?), white toast with grape or strawberry jelly and Belgian waffles with syrup, powdered sugar, whipped cream, butter and strawberries.

But wait, there’s more! Ms. Psycho-diva also demands Snapple, Red Bull, assorted fruit juices, Simply Lemonade, a fruit platter, cheese platter, deli tray, 3 packs of gum, salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, green olives, Wishbone Light Italian dressing, Bumble Bee tuna and wheat or low fat crackers.

That’s it as far as food is concerned but Minaj also requests a few other things you can’t eat. Aside from the amount of food that could feed a family of four for a week, Minaj also demands two dozen pink or white roses, candles that smell like baked goods, Halls Mentho-Lyptus Honey Lemon Throat Cough Drops, contact lens solution with case, two space heaters and a cool mist humidifier.

To be honest, this makes me sick. There are so many people out there that are starving and struggling to get by and this disgrace of a human being is demanding 36 pieces of chicken, fruit platters, cheese platters, deli trays and all that other crap which, I am imagining, she only eats 10% of. People like this need to be dragged into an alley and beaten until they see the error of their ways and then beaten some more. And furthermore, Minaj doesn’t even have the fame to be demanding anything like this. She should be happy people actually show up for her concerts.
