Compensation committee to talk Roger Goodell contract

Curtis Compton AJC

In it, he asked for $50 million a year (a almost 60 percent raise), lifetime use of a private jet and health insurance for his family for the rest of their lives.

"Roger is defiant", one owner told ESPN.

According to ESPN, "The NFL's Compensation Committee will hold a conference call Monday to discuss and further push ahead the proposed extension for commissioner Roger Goodell". As PFW reported this week, Jones may have a half-dozen owners in his corner, while a larger group remains displeased with Goodell but isn't sure how to respond, and a growing faction is furious with Jones over his public handling of the NFL's private business.

The committee will address Goodell's salary and compensation package. "It's offensive. It's unseemly".

Goodell's current contract runs out in March of 2019 and the commish and owners are now working on a five-year contract extension.

Roger Goodell wants to get paid. a lot.

Prime Minister Trudeau arrives in Philippines for Southeast Asian summit
President Widod and First Lady Iriana along with the entourage were greeted with "marching band" and typical Filipino dances. He praised India as a sovereign democracy with a population of over 1 billion as well as the largest democracy in the world.

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.

Now, given the freaky events of the past week, with Jones threatening to sue the league - even though his case is seen to have little merit within league circles given that Jones was among those who voted unanimously to extend Goodell's deal in the spring - and with nearly constant media reports on the contract in recent weeks, Goodell is being told by many he trusts on such matters to put pen to paper.

Goodell's job as National Football League commissioner has been to serve the owners by creating other sorts of revenue opportunities.

"I don't sense that at all from him", said a source close to Goodell on whether or not he will leave the job "He has said he's committed to it". "It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, Zeke, the anthem".

Jones has even threatened legal action against his fellow owners if they go through with the plan to extend Goodell's pact. "It's just killing the game".
