    First, some of the owners back Goodell in this issue.

    Second, if there is some sort of coup against Goodell, which, presumably not all the owners would support, you're right -- there would be chaos and anarchy. That's bad for business. And right now in the NFL, business is good.

    But, the business model is showing signs of strain -- TV ratings, TV contracts, head injuries, etc. The owners need a steady hand, not anarchy.

      Nixonian? It positively Trumpian!

        If they want that, they should hire a different commissioner. There are no fans that like Goodell. You either don't care or hate him. The players hate Goodell. Arguably the two most powerful owners in the sport - Kraft and Jones - hate him. He's drawn the ire of Trump's 37%. All in all, he's dug his own grave. No idea why they handed him an extension. Plenty of other good executives out there.

          That is absolutely insane. "We had to contort the legal system to defend this sham of a decision that fucks you; also, here's the bill."

          At the same meeting, with the support of most owners, Goodell was given a five-year extension. Under its terms, he has the possibility of earning as much as $200 million.
          In terms of value to compensation, this is an all time grotesque distortion. A modestly trained monkey could make better decisions, with better outcomes, by flinging his poo at a decision wheel, but Rog is worth $200M.

          What a time to be alive.

            Good questions. If the fans, players and a couple very influential and powerful owners hate the guy, why did Goodell get a new deal?

              Per @RapSheet
              Clarity on NFL and #Cowboys owner Jerry Jones: it's not a fine, it's a reimbursement of costs incurred by the member clubs. More than $2M. The resolution has been on the books for more than 20 years. Goodell did this after consulting owners.

                      I'm all for anything that raises the stress/blood pressure of our 70-something year old skeletor looking owner.

                        Hes not stressing. Hes raising the ticket prices.

                          They are the ones that decided to drag the investigation out over 15 months. That was THEIR CALL. Jerry just added to it by calling them out on a BS decision which added to the legal expenses that they had already bloated by dragging it out so far. Just ridiculous.

                            That is a good point. I don't really give a fuck about Jones' money (unless it affects the cap).

                              If Goodell succeeds in prevailing over an owner then he will be virtually unstoppable as to how far he can wield his will for the rest of his tenure. I said earlier about the Elliot matter that he would push to prevail as a matter of setting a precedent within the league. The Owners through their own ignorance are giving him monodical control over the entire league. It’s Jones now and he is one of the Super structure franchises so from here he can steam roller most any other owner at will and the rest will fall in line for fear of incurring his wrath. He won’t be easy to unseat then because he likely has an emormous golden parachute in his contract. The salary committee unwittingly did this as a power play against Jones and it may end up biting them in the butt.
