Commissioner Goodell hits ’60 Minutes’

In the lead-up to Roger Goodell‘s “60 Minutes” interview, which aired Sunday night on CBS, the NFL commissioner is compared to federal reserve chairman Ben Bernanke for the economic might he yields as the figurehead of a $10 billion industry.

But Goodell doesn’t sit around bathing in power.

“I don’t look at it in that term,” he said.

“I have to make a lot of decisions that aren’t in the best interest of individuals, whether they be owners, club executives, players. But I have to make sure integrity of the game is protected — at all times.”

Reporter Steve Kroft asked Goodell who defines integrity for the NFL.

“That’s my job,” Goodell said, sounding like a man who wears many hats.
