Roger Goodell Wants An Ungodly Amount Of Money To Remain NFL Commissioner

Roger Goodell wants an awful lot in his new contract. More

Jerry Jones apparently has opened yet another new front in his assault on Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract.

"The only element of the ESPN report that is true is that there is a regularly scheduled Compensation Committee conference call on Monday", NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said in a statement.

According to the sources, only about three of the league's other 31 owners are backing Jones for his quest to halt Goodell's contract extension. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Goodell has not budged from an offer he submitted around August 1 in which he asks for $49.5 million per year, the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime health insurance for his family (cue the players' fury). "It's offensive. It's unseemly". That's a substantial bump up from the $30 million he's making right now.

This request comes off the heels of one of the most boggled public relations stories of all time - the NFL's failure to properly address players who choose to kneel during the national anthem as a way to highlight police brutality.


ESPN cited sources with the figures for the contract extension Goodell has proposed to the NFL's Competition Committee. The letter says Blank reneged on his commitment that the six members of the committee would be unanimous in their support of the Goodell extension-a charge I am told Blank denies.

According to the ESPN report, Jones said that the league is in a state of "upheaval" under an "avalanche of issues that have beleaguered the NFL unlike any other time in recent memory". "He's not going to resign; he's not going to take a pay cut". That, coupled with the continued fallout from the player protests during the singing of "The Star Spangled Banner", have resulted in Jones' threat to sue the league if any such deal with Goodell goes through. It doesn't seem that Goodell is going to walk away willingly either. "He feels there are important issues he has to deal with".

Goodell is dealing with a league in turmoil in 2017. No one is talking about football.
