Goodell's 'offensive' list of NFL CEO contract demands

Adjust Comment Print

Now comes this report from Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio suggesting that multiple NFL owners have discussed the possibility of forcing Jones out from his current position as Cowboys owner.

Jones would later acknowledge that he didn't speak to Blank, adding that it wasn't unprecedented for owners avoid pregame conversations.

The committee will address Goodell's salary and compensation package.

After Jones accused Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank and the other member of the NFL's compensation committee of misleading the rest of the owners about Roger Goodell's contract extension, the League responded by claiming Jones was misleading others.

According to King, Jones' demands over Goodell's contract have not gone over well with the competition committee.

"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. After the meeting between National Football League owners and players held in October, Goodell outlined there will be no change in policy regarding anthem protests. We're not against Roger (Goodell), we just don't know if this is the time to be talking about major contract extensions when the league certainly has several challenges in terms of where we are as a league.

Needless to say, James didn't leave any of his personal tickets for Mr. "Forty-five minute bus ride or six-minute train ride". The experience was documented by the National Basketball Association and by LeBron James' media company, Uninterrupted .

Blank, according to a report Sunday by Sports Illustrated writer Peter King, was "shocked" and "disappointed" by Jones' threat to sue the league, telling the Cowboys owner, "We may have differences, but this is not the way we resolve them".

The NFL Competition Committee is meeting today to discuss extending the NFL boss's already lucrative contract.

Jones is also upset over Goodell's treatment of his star running back, Ezekiel Elliott, who was suspended six games earlier this season for domestic violence allegations.

"I've been dealing with this commissioner for nearly 28 years, as an employee of the NFL", Jones said on his radio show late last week.

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

Jones said his relationship with Goodell, and issues related to his compensation, are deeper than his recent concern over the league's handling of Elliott's case.
