Goodell

Commissioner

Following a pandemic-compromised season where TV broadcasts turned to virtual fans and fake crowd noise to compensate for the absence of attendees, Goodell set down strict COVID-19 rules to ensure the integrity of NFL’s 2021-22 season. Measures included a $50,000 fine for players who refuse to submit to a virus test and requiring teams that experience an outbreak among unvaccinated players to forfeit any games that must be canceled and cover financial losses — a significant move given NFL teams collectively lost an estimated $4 billion due to coronavirus in the previous season. In the 2021 off-season, the league extended its multiyear partnership with Twitter and fined the Washington Football Team $10 million after an independent review of workplace harassment and bullying.
