(CBS) - The NFL preseason lock-out disputes were called a feud between millionaires and billionaires. But it turns out millionaires can beef with each other too. Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White took to Twitter when he heard that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will make $20 million per season by the end of his contract. "How in the hell can u pay a man this much money that cant run tackle or catch," White wrote.

White continued: "Roger Goodell is getting over never seen anything like it 20 million for looking over the league with tremendous help I guess the NFL is banking."

When a follower wrote back that Goodell is the head of the biggest sports league in the country, White replied:

Roddy White is currently in the 3rd year of a 6-year, $48 million contract with Atlanta. He has made waves online before, like the time he was forced to apologize after ripping Atlanta's archrival the New Orleans Saints in 2010.
