Roger Goodell Seeks New Contract With $50M Salary And A Private Jet

Goodell appears set to remain in his current role; forcing him out would require a two-thirds majority of owners, and Jones doesn't appear to have that kind of coalition mobilised.

"Leadership starts at the top, and this is an example of poor leadership", Schnatter said, words that owners wonder if Jones had a hand in. Cohen claims Blank told owners that the compensation committee would vote unanimously on Goodell's deal.

He also wants to be able to use a private jet for the rest of his life, and have lifetime health insurance for himself and his family.

The six people on the committee - the owners of the Chiefs, Falcons, Giants, Patriots, Steelers and Texans - have spoken regularly with other owners about the status of the negotiations, and the committee chairman, Arthur Blank, briefed all owners on the contract talks at leaguewide meeting in mid-October.

"The Committee is continuing its work towards finalizing a contract extension with the Commissioner, consistent with the mandate provided in the unanimous May 2017 Resolution", Blank wrote.

Jones, a non-voting member of the committee, is reportedly looking to sue the league if Goodell's extension is completed without final approval from the league's 32 teams.

"Certainly, we have things we need to discuss that weren't on the table last spring", Jones said.

It's the first time for the U.S.to operate three of its 11 carriers simultaneously in the area since 2007. Still, he warned Pyongyang that its military was no match for the U.S. "And do not try us".

I never thought I'd be on the side of Jerry Jones, but here I am.

The other major concern is that Goodell's new deal does not include any accountability for a decline in television ratings that could affect future broadcast-rights fees.

Some fans have said protests are disrespectful to the American flag and to the military, and have boycotted the NFL.

But months of repeated missteps, failures and black eyes have sawed the legs off that throne, and Goodell now finds his contract extension anything but a rubber-stamp guarantee ... even as he's apparently making some eyebrow-raising contract demands.

"It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, [Ezekiel Elliott's suspension], the anthem".

Last weekend, during the Veterans Day celebrations, the majority of National Football League players stood for the anthem to honor Americans who served in the military.
