Roger Goodell Seeking Private Jet For Life In New Contract

The NFL commissioner supposedly wants that to be bumped up to $50 million, have private jet and health care access for he and his family for life. His current deal includes compensation of roughly $30 million per year.

One NFL owner said the new proposal is "just too much for Roger" calling it offensive.

"The only element of the ESPN report that is true is that there is a regularly scheduled Compensation Committee conference call on Monday", NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said in a statement. One source estimates that Jones has "at best" three other owners who agree with his stance on Goodell's extension, and 24 votes would be needed to truly impeded the process.

While Goodell has been the National Football League commissioner for over a decade, he may not get a contract extension by the National Football League owners. That appeared to be a formality, despite Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' objection, but the most recent demands from Goodell might force the owners to think long and hard about that. "He's not going to resign; he's not going to take a pay cut".

He also reiterated: "It is a government company and rights to the logo have been transferred to the company". Let the notice come, we will face the legal battle", he said.

The committee will address Goodell's salary and compensation package. "He can stand to show some humility, but he won't listen to staff".

Those around Goodell do not believe he will leave the job, despite the protestations of a handful of owners. Several league sources noted, however, that Jones was allowed to participate in some of the functions of that committee, despite not being formally named to it, back in the spring and summer, precisely because of his support of Goodell and his ability to move things along as an influential owner. "He feels there are important issues he has to deal with".

"The problem is, no one is talking about games anymore", one owner told ESPN this weekend. "It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, Zeke, the anthem".
