Roger Goodell Wants $50 Million, Jet, Health Insurance for Life After Screwing Up Football

5

Up until this year, Goodell has been riding high with profits up and maintaining the respect of the owners. Since then, all people talk about is concussions, Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension, and the anthem. His poor handling of these situations hardly makes all the owners happy.

Nonetheless, Goodell wants a pay raise from $30 million to $49.5 million with a couple perks, including a lifetime jet and insurance for himself and his family forever.

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones said he will file that lawsuit if the owners don’t have the right to approve the contract. He says they were misled and this extension of the contract can’t just be rubber stamped.

Brad Karp, the league’s outside counsel retained for this matter, said in response that Jones was uninformed or deliberately misleading other owners, a source told ESPN.

If Goodell doesn’t get his extraordinary package, most believe he will not walk away.

One NFL owner told ESPN that there are “several owners in this league who don’t make $40 million a year.” Another NFL executive told ESPN that the committee should pass a rule that prohibits Goodell from making more than the league’s highest-paid player.

This information comes via ESPN sources. Joe Lockhart, the executive vice president of communications, denied that Goodell had submitted such a written counterproposal.

  1. Wow! But do I really care? No, quit watching professional and big time sports several years ago. A big reason was I saw several decades ago how big the money has become. The rest just happened.

    As you gain wisdom and knowledge, you try to simplify your life. 🙂

  2. Goodell has been at the helm during a rise in violent crimes committed by NFL players. There’s been a sharp decline in game attendance and profits as a result of ongoing disrespect by players and Goodell’s weak-kneed response. (Pun intended!) And he wants to be rewarded for this? Goodell doesn’t need to be given this inflated contract, he needs to be shown the door.

  3. What an incredibly arrogant person. There are some sinister things going on in the league. This appears to be a hostile takeover by the dictator Goodell. The owners always had the right to remove the commissioner. Now they will have to use legal means? This is the commissioner who would not enforce league policy. That was a suspicious act. He has embraced the protesting, indicating he is closely allied with the far left union. Plus we know he had discussions with Obama. Why? If the owners were real leaders they would have removed him already. They have one final opportunity to save their teams.
