Goof is playing hardball.

Louis Riddick understands why Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is up in arms over details in Roger Goodell's contract, including lifetime use of a private jet and a $50 million annual salary. (2:10)

The NFL's Compensation Committee will hold a conference call Monday to discuss and further push ahead the proposed extension for commissioner Roger Goodell, sources confirmed to ESPN.
The conference call, first reported Saturday by The New York Times, comes after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones voiced his displeasure about the contract extension that the committee has been discussing. The call also gives the committee a chance to do what it believes is right.

Jones' lawyer: Owners misled in Goodell talks
An attorney for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says NFL owners are being misled about negotiations on a contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell, according to a letter that was sent to the league's counsel and shared with NFL owners and executives.

The committee will address Goodell's salary and compensation package. The last written counterproposal from Goodell, which was around the first of August, was seeking about $49.5 million per year, as well as the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime health insurance for his family, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.
Joe Lockhart, the executive vice president of communications, denied that Goodell had submitted such a written counterproposal. He also said there have been several meetings or conference calls among the compensation committee before Monday's scheduled meeting.
The source who originally provided the information on Goodell's "only written counterproposal" of $50 million with the perks is standing firm on the matter. The source only clarified that Goodell's monetary proposal was for $49.5 million.
Goodell currently makes around $30 million per year.
One NFL owner told ESPN that there are "several owners in this league who don't make $40 million a year." The owner was referring to the salaries that owners take, which does not include the increase in valuations that each NFL franchise has undergone.
"That number for Roger just seems too much," the owner said. "It's offensive. It's unseemly."
One NFL executive told ESPN that the committee should pass a rule that prohibits Goodell from making more than the league's highest-paid player.
An attorney for Jones has said that owners are being misled about the Goodell negotiations, according to a letter obtained by ESPN that was sent late Wednesday to the league's counsel and shared with team owners and executives. Jones has threatened to file a lawsuit if Goodell's extension is completed without final review or approval from the league's 32 teams.
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.
There also are those in the league who believe the only way Goodell would not stay on as commissioner would be if he walked away. But according to sources who know Goodell, this will not happen.

"Roger is defiant," one NFL owner told ESPN this weekend. "He's not going to resign; he's not going to take a pay cut. He can stand to show some humility, but he won't listen to staff."
Those around Goodell do not believe he will leave the job, despite the protestations of a handful of owners.
"I don't sense that at all from him," one source who is regularly around Goodell told ESPN. "He has said he's committed to it. He feels there are important issues he has to deal with."
Yet there are issues that other owners aside from Jones are aware of, and they are wrestling now with how to best handle it.
"The problem is, no one is talking about games anymore," one owner told ESPN this weekend. "It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, [Ezekiel Elliott's suspension], the anthem. No one is talking about football. It's just killing the game."

Dump Goof picking up steam?

•Roger Goodell is reportedly asking for a $49.5 million salary and a private jet for life.
•But Goodell has performed badly as NFL commissioner for years.
•The owners should dump him and reap the p.r. rewards of naming a new commissioner ASAP.

Jake Novak
CNBC.com

For many decades, the NFL has owned the no-lose product that is professional football in America. But the league's current leadership, helmed by Commissioner Roger Goodell, has made one crucial mistake after another and now the once-invulnerable league is playing defense.

And what's the NFL's response to these failures in leadership from the commissioner?

It's going to give him a big raise of course.

The news came out Sunday that Goodell is reportedly asking for a $49.5 million annual salary and lifetime use of a private jet among other perks in his new contract deal. That would be a nice jump from his last reported annual salary of $31.7 million in 2015.

If the NFL wants to move past its multiple serious problems right now the owners should not only refuse to give Goodell a raise, they should replace him.

At least one owner is taking steps to at least slow the contract renewal process down. Jerry Jones who owns the NFL's most valuable franchise in the Dallas Cowboys has started an unprecedented legal war to challenge the deal. And it looks like he's playing hard ball: Jones has hired superstar litigator David Boies.

But let's backtrack a bit and look at the NFL's major problems and how Goodell has made them worse.

"If the NFL wants to move past its multiple serious problems right now the owners should not only refuse to give Goodell a raise, they should replace him."

The most serious issue is the life-threatening and sport-threatening problem with concussions. Even after the landmark settlement of a lawsuit brought against the NFL by former players with severe health issues connected to on field concussions, the controversy and pressure on the league to improve safety continues to mount. That pressure was increased by two very scathing and recent public attacks on the NFL.

The first came from NBC sportscaster Bob Costas, who said on Wednesday that the game of football could become extinct over time because, "the reality is that this game destroys people's brains." And in a specific jab at the NFL's leadership, Costas also said that the league is dealing with the situation in a defensive fashion that is making it look worse.

The NFL certainly looked bad on Sunday afternoon after one of the leading experts on concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, (CTE), caught the league red handed so to speak during the Colts-Steelers game in Indianapolis. Dr. Chris Nowinski, himself a former college football player, has been relentless in his criticism of the NFL for not enforcing its own stated rules in treating potential concussions on the field. On Sunday, he immediately noted a very blatant-looking breach of those rules in the way the teams and the referees responded to a player's apparent head injury. He described it live on Twitter:

And there have been other instances like this during this season as well.

Goodell cannot be blamed when individual teams breach the concussion protocol or the referees fail to properly penalize players on the spot. But he can be blamed for not cracking down at least belatedly or adopting a tougher true zero tolerance policy for preventable concussion danger. The constant "wait and see" attitude is part and parcel of that ineffective defensive posture Costas was talking about. And that's prompted repeated accusations of cover ups against the NFL that compare the league's behavior to the tobacco industry.

Goodell's personal attitude on this issue has consistently put the league in a bad light. He often takes a detached and arrogant tone as he did with the news media in 2016 when he compared concussion dangers to the risks connected to "sitting on the couch." And then there was the time Goodell was caught laughing at a joke about concussions.

The second big problem the NFL has been dealing with this year is the kneeling protests over police brutality by players during the national anthem. When President Trump began bashing the NFL for not cracking down on this, it became a page one story. While many fans have rallied to support the players, some advertisers are feeling the heat for continuing to support the NFL. And there is no denying that this is happening at the same time that attendance and TV ratings are down. The NFL owners are concerned enough to have already met to try to fix this public relations problem.

Goodell flubbed this issue too, since the league once again has taken a mostly close-mouthed response to a very public debate. His options have always included working with the owners and the players union, (NFLPA), to find another time during pregame ceremonies other than the anthem to lodge a protest, etc. Instead, the problem has festered in a way a better commissioner could have avoided. And Goodell seemed to have made thing worse by simply saying "we believe the players should stand" and leaving it at that. In so doing, he looked a lot like a useless figurehead as opposed to someone worth about $50 million per year.

Remember too that we are just three years removed from Goodell's poor handling of the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal. Many experts believed Goodell's time as commissioner was doomed then, but he somehow survived that backlash. Perhaps some of the owners who backed him them will reconsider this time.

Jones and his high-prices lawyers are hoping they will. He is clearly not the only owner who is unhappy right now. But even if this becomes one owner against the other 31, this is could very well become a civil war with a very ugly legal battle to go with it. The much easier choice is to seize the very low hanging public relations fruit by making a change in the commissioner's office.

The bottom line is Roger Goodell simply isn't worth $50 million and a private jet. And he surely isn't worth an NFL civil war. It's hard to see why so many of the league owners don't get it.

Even the Fat Fuck Peter King is saying its absurd about Goodell asking for a private jet for life. These demands are really looking like poor strategy.

espn lied about the jet thing totally, they didn't report that goodell was going to purchase the plane himself and ask the NFL to assist with the yearly service plan.


On this note, Look at what Jerrah said to Goodell calling Kraft a pussy

Quote:
"I'm gonna come after you with everything I have," Jones said. Then he mentioned Deflategate. "If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard, Bob Kraft is a p---y compared to what I'm going to do."

Really he has worn out his welcome. And that he has not been popular with people. From fans, players, coaches, owners, etc.
Time for him to go.

he has only worn out his welcome with one owner. As long as 24 owners support him, Goodell is going no where.

I'm telling all of you....he has dirt. That's the only way you explain this. They could hire people WAAAAYYYYY better than Goodell for half the price, and they won't. We all know why....
