Americans are walking away from the NFL in droves because they are so disgusted by the National Anthem protests. People are shutting off their TVs and not going to games anymore. And it all happened on Goodell’s watch. This guy has a lot of nerve asking for such a massive paycheck.
FOX News reports:
Roger Goodell reportedly requests $50 million salary, lifetime private jet in contract talks
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.
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.
An unnamed NFL owner told ESPN that there are “several owners in this league who don’t make $40 million a year.” The owner added: “That number for Roger just seems too much. It’s offensive. It’s unseemly.”
This news is probably just going to turn off more fans.
