Steelers Fan Coach/Exec Hatin' Round 1: No. 4 Roger Goodell vs No. 5 Robert Kraft

BTSC continues to establish the most-despised NFL coach or executive according to our readers. We continue with the league commissioner and the owner of the Steeler Nation's most-hated team.

To conclude Round 1 of Steeler Fan Exec/Coach Hatin', BTSC presents an intriguing battle between two executives that until "Deflategate" were the best of pals. Let us know as a member of Steelers Nation who you can't stand.

No. 4 Roger Goodell - NFL Commisioner

Goodell is not really loved by most team's fan bases. He really shouldn't be either due to the fact that he works for the owners and keeps their best interests in mind more than that of the players that he lords over. As far as Steeler Nation goes, there's some sentiment that Goodell treats Steeler players with a harsher hand. That mostly has to do with the length of Ben Roethlisberger's 2010 suspension and the run-ins that James Harrison has had with the NFL commish. Harrison claimed in 2011 that he wouldn't urinate on Goodell if he was on fire. I don't think Deebo was joking. Goodell attended college nearby at Washington and Jefferson.

No. 5 Robert Kraft - New England Patriots Owner

The Patriots owner is basically on the list because he is the Patriots owner. There aren't too many crimes against Steeler Nation to list, but he seems to embody the pompousness and irritating sense of entitlement of most New England fans. Personally, I found his comments that alluded to the "Pats against the world" persecution as laughable and annoying.

It's all up to you. Be sure to vote and comment. The leading vote getter will advance to the semifinals to face John Harbaugh.


Which executive would you least likely cross the street to pee on if he was on fire?
