The NFL’s Compensation Committee will hold a conference call Monday to discuss and further push ahead the proposed extension for commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Commissioner makes $30 million a year right now but wants a raise of$19.5 million and the lifetime use of a private jet. Can you believe it? This guy has been a disaster during the anti-anthem protests…
What they might want to consider is the shocking photos of half-empty stadiums for the NFL games this past weekend. No, things are not getting better with the attendance and support of the league. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell deserves to be kicked to the curb for how he’s handled this kneeling controversy. Instead, he’s boldly asking for almost $50 million and lifetime use of a private jet…Wow!
CONFERENCE CALL ON MONDAY:
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.
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. Read more: ESPN
