CHANGE FROM 2012: NO CHANGE

Love him or hate him, there’s no denying the imprint Goodell has on the NFL, and thus sports and media in America. Goodell is the unquestioned leader of America’s most powerful game, and nothing — not concussions, player misconduct, replacement refs, even the lights going out at the Super Bowl — appears able to dent his armor. The problem is that it increasingly seems as though Goodell is managing from one crisis to another rather than leading through innovation, but his influence on the overall sports business is undeniable.
