FLOWERY BRANCH | Falcons receiver blasts NFL Commissioner's salary


ATLANTA -- He's one of the most potent weapons in the Atlanta Falcons' offense and one of the team's highest-paid players.

But Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is making headlines this week not for his on-the-field performance, but for some off-the-field comments, blasting league commissioner Roger Goodell.

In a barrage of tweets, White questioned Goodell's $20 million salary, writing, "How in the hell can you pay a man this much money who can't run, tackle or catch?"

White then followed up with, "That's the stupidest thing I ever heard. The players make this league. Don't ever forget that."

And finally, when asked if he thought he might be fined for criticizing Goodell, White tweeted, "I hope not. I'm praying not. I need my money."

ADOPT A PET: Meet Miranda

ATLANTA - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half-chewed shoe or an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a companion for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.
