Roger Goodell: David Stern ‘the Dean’ of Commissioners

According to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, there’s a hierarchy among sports commissioners, with David Stern at the very top. From the AP: “NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reached a labor agreement with players during the summer that ended a four-month lockout. NBA Commissioner David Stern is in the midst of his own lockout, which started July 1. Don’t expect Goodell to make any recommendations. ‘I talked to David yesterday. I don’t give him any advice,’ Goodell said Tuesday at a news conference to unveil the host committee’s logo for the 2014 Super Bowl in New York and New Jersey. ‘He’s the dean. He gives us advice.’”

    Say what you want, but very few people would be able to handle the job better than David Stern has done.
