And don’t get me started...

Roger Goodell's job likely protected by contract details

It’s hard to forget how badly NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has bungled things in the last few months. Though many have called for his ouster, Goodell still sits at the helm of the NFL despite his utter failure in punishing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for committing domestic violence.

WATCH: Goodell stumbles on domestic violence question

Roger Goodell read a prepared statement during his press conference on Friday and then answered questions using lines given to him by PR people/crisis management firms.
