Here’s what it takes for Roger Goodell to get a standing ovation

Roger Goodell

Roger Goodell has been one of the most criticized individuals in America for several years now, and there are people inside and outside the NFL who believe he has failed to fulfill his duties as commissioner of the league. However, Goodell finally did something this week that drew tremendous praise from those who work with and under him.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Goodell received his “loudest ovation” in years at the NFL league offices this week when he announced that all employees have been given next week off for the 4th of July holiday.

For a guy who has been lambasted seemingly nonstop for the way he has botched the handling of things like Deflategate and other disciplinary cases, Goodell will take the applause any way he can get it. Remember, this is the same commissioner who was booed so mercilessly at the NFL Draft that TV networks had to figure out how to drown it out.
