NFL Commissioner Asking For $50-Million Dollar Salary

NFL Commissioner Asking For $50-Million Dollar Salary

While certain players maintain that demonstration is not about disrespecting the military, hundreds of thousands of fans see it differently.

Goodell now makes around $30 million a year.

ESPN, citing sources familiar with the negotiations, reported that Goodell is also looking for lifetime health insurance for his family. One example is his tarnishing of the league's greatest of all time quarterback, Tom Brady, during the phony deflate-gate scandal.

According to a Cowboys staffer, it's customary for the home owner to walk across the field and greet the visiting owner.

As one unnamed owner (Jones?) told ESPN, "S$3 everal owners in this league who don't make $40 million a year". "It's offensive. It's unseemly".

Goodell will be the commissioner the next 18 months, so those in Jones' camp believe there is no reason to rush the extension.

"Jerry was fully on board with this right up until (Elliott's) suspension came down", one ownership source said. The sources suggest that "at best" Jones has maybe three other owners in his corner that Goodell should go, but is nowhere close to the 24 votes required to derail a process that is in essence already completed (pending just a formal signing and announcement, sources said). Jones contends that Blank has misled owners about having the unanimous approval of the six-man committee to extend Goodell.

"I'm willing to bet on myself", Goodell said in a months-ago meeting with the committee, willing to forfeit much of the money that his current deal now guarantees in lieu of earning the bonuses. "He feels there are important issues he has to deal with". He is used to getting his way in the league.

The Roger Goodell contract details are leaking as fast as Ezekiel Elliott runs. No one is talking about football. The NFL has had dismal viewing performance in 2017, with league wide ratings slumping below the MLB and National Basketball Association this year. Many experts and polls show the direct correlation and causation between the anthem protests and the ratings drop.

The committee will address Goodell's salary and compensation package.

Roger Goodell is asking for an absurd raise.
