Obama compares himself to Aaron Rodgers, shocked by Goodell's salary
President Obama sat down with Bill Simmons. In their interview, he revealed that he's comparable to Aaron Rodgers and that he can't believe how much money the NFL's commissioner makes.
President Barack Obama can't believe how much money Roger Goodell is making. At least that's what he told Bill Simmons.
Earlier this fall, Grantland founder and future HBO star Bill Simmons sat down with President Obama. On Tuesday, their interview finally landed on GQ's website. Unsurprisingly, given it was Simmons asking the questions, we learned a bit about Obama's sports takes, including that he's comparable to Aaron Rodgers.
"Or maybe [Aaron] Rodgers in the pocket, in the sense of you can't be distracted by what's around you, you've got to be looking downfield," Obama said when asked if he was similar to Gregg Popovich. "And I think that's a quality that I have -- not getting flustered in what's around me."
But then again, the money ...
"But I cannot believe that the commissioner of football gets paid $44 million a year," Obama added.
The entire interview, which includes a decent amount of sports talk, can be read here.
