    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly has requested nearly $50 million per year in addition to the lifetime use of a private jet amid contract negotiations with the league.
    Goodell, whose proposed contract with the NFL currently is undergoing an approval process, asked the league’s compensation committee in August to raise his salary from $30 million to $49.5 million per year, ESPN reported Sunday.

    Goodell also reportedly asked to use a private jet for life, and also requested lifetime health insurance for his family.


    NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL: ALL PLAYERS ‘SHOULD’ STAND FOR NATIONAL ANTHEM
    The commissioner currently is embattled with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who has threatened to sue the NFL if negotiations regarding Goodell’s contract extension are finalized without approval from all NFL team owners.


    One team owner, regarding the possibility Goodell possibly would leave his position, said “the problem” with the NFL is “no one is talking about games anymore.”
    “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,” the owner told ESPN.
    Another owner told the sports network that “Roger is defiant,” and they don’t believe he’ll “take a pay cut” or resign as commissioner of the NFL. Roger Goodell reportedly requests $50 million salary, lifetime private jet in contract talks | Fox News

    During the past month the overall stock market is up more than 2% but shares of companies that broadcast NFL games--Comcast, Walt Disney, Fox, CBS--are all down between 1% to 8%.
    Ratings for the the NFL have been worse this season and attendance for some games has also been disappointing. The networks will pay over $5 billion this season to televise the NFL and were already facing unflattering margins on advertising profits. An article in The Hollywood Reporter reckons the drop in NFL ratings could trim the broadcaster's earnings by $200 million. Disney's ESPN, meanwhile, also continues to get hammered by cord-cutting. https://www.forbes.com/sites/mikeozanian/2017/09/23/nfl-broadcasting-stocks-slump-as-protests-rise-and-tv-ratings-slump/#22e55c584eec

    Personally I think Roger Goodell is out of his mind wanting that much money in an organization he has turned into a downhill slide by his own doings from not enforcing rules about standing for the flag. . The NFL team owners should vote him out, he is ruining the game of football. No one is talking about games, but what they are protesting, which no one really knows exactly what its about. There is no voice to what they are protesting, that's the problem and Goodell is doing nothing for the game. Save the great game of football and put a new commissioner in his place.

    Goodell has always been an idiot- way before there were any protests. And if people don't know what the protest's are all about by now, well then your just as dumb as Goodell is

    Wanting a private jet for life?

    Talk about being out of touch.

    How could anyone possibly be confused by “to quietly protest racial injustice and police brutality while on national tv, but not disturbing the game ”.

    Why do people coyly pretend they don’t understand things when they actually just plain don’t like it?

    He's now considering removing Jerry Jones as owner of the cowboys because he doesn't like him.

    Goodell is trash.

    Unless Owners like losing money they better vote out Goodell soon. Not surprised he dislikes Jerry Jones, this has all been about Goodell forcing his views on Americans. Its become a game of politics rather then football. Should get a New Commissioner that really loves the game of football

    Has the protest changed anything, other then lost sponsers and fans?

    It was meant to raise awareness and show solidarity. People’s ridiculous over-reaction to it, and their ridiculous exaggeration of it, and their attempt to paint it as somehow against the military, is 100% about those people, not the players silently taking a knee and bothering no one.

    Yes. You're more aware of injustice now than you were before. I mean, you'll deny it and deny there is injustice, but we all know you're more aware of it because you're talking against it at every opportunity.

    The kneeling controversial is over. Not one ball game on TV showed the NA.
