The Reporter Who Won’t Let the NFL Go off the Record

Mark Leibovich spent years digging under the skin of Washington, D.C.’s power brokers. When he turned his attention to the world of pro football for a new book, he found an awfully familiar set of characters.


Goodell evinced no sense of humor. When Jane Skinner Goodell told Leibovich that her husband had the NFL shield tattooed on his butt, Roger Goodell made sure the reporter knew she was joking. Goodell was eager to talk in detail about how he’d crushed a Pilates or SoulCycle workout. “It’s almost as if he’s making himself a Vince McMahon creation, right?” Leibovich said. “I’m the dick in the suit and I work out a lot. You can see it, because the suit is kinda tight.”
