    Looks like Jerry coming at Goodell with "everything he has" about amounted to a pussy fart.

    Just have to hope the players do much better with the next CBA, otherwise, the NFL may be completely unwatchable within the next decade.

    Here is the message that was sent and the MFers that signed off on this crap:

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has signed a contract extension with the league, according to a memo sent to NFL owners from Compensation Committee. The memo was obtained Wednesday by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

    In the memo, the Compensation Committee stated the contract "has been signed by the Commissioner and by [Falcons owner] Arthur Blank, on behalf of the League entities."

    Goodell, 58, succeeded Paul Tagliabue in September of 2006. He first joined the league as an intern back in 1982.

    Here is the memo sent to NFL team owners on behalf of the Compensation Committee announcing Goodell signed his extension:

    Dear Owners,

    Please see the below message sent on behalf of the Compensation Committee.

    All,

    In recent days, we have spoken with each of you individually regarding the status of the negotiations to extend Commissioner Goodell's employment contract. In the course of those discussions, we have reviewed with you the details of the contract extension. Our Committee unanimously supports the contract and believes that it is fully consistent with "market" compensation and the financial and other parameters outlined to the owners at our May 2017 meeting, as well as in the best interests of ownership. We also have expressed in those conversations our strong and unanimous belief that we should proceed to sign the agreement now, consistent with the unanimous May resolution and to avoid further controversy surrounding this issue. We are pleased to report that there is a nearly unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now.

    Accordingly, this will advise the ownership that a binding contract extension has been signed by the Commissioner and by Arthur Blank, on behalf of the League entities.

    We are pleased to have resolved this issue and we appreciate the strong support received from our partners. It was particularly gratifying to hear so many owners commit to being more engaged in League affairs and to express the desire to work more closely with the Commissioner and League staff on matters critical to the League. We know that we speak for all of you, as well as for the Commissioner, in saying that the NFL is strongest when our ownership is active and unified.

    We look forward to seeing each of you at the Special Meeting in Dallas on December 13th and to working together, as a partnership, to address the important issues facing the League.

    Sincerely,

    Compensation Committee:

    Arthur Blank, Chairman

    Clark Hunt

    Robert Kraft

    John Mara

    Bob McNair

    Art Rooney

    Rich McKay (chairman) – president, Atlanta Falcons
    John Mara – owner, New York Giants
    Stephen Jones – owner, Dallas Cowboys
    Mark Murphy – president, Green Bay Packers
    Ozzie Newsome – general manager, Baltimore Ravens
    Rick Smith – general manager, Houston Texans
    Marvin Lewis – head coach, Cincinnati Bengals
    Mike Tomlin – head coach, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Bruce Arians – head coach, Arizona Cardinals
    John Elway – general manager, Denver Broncos
    Sean Payton – head coach, New Orleans Saints

    As someone who used to soak in the draft, free agency, actually watch preseason games etc... I used to actually think the NFL as a 12 month a year sport and loved every bit of it. The past few years it has really lost its luster. Largely because of goodell and the random punishments, softening up the game, fucking with the draft, overseas games etc. plus I hate Garrett (not sure if I’ve ever made that clear).

    The past few years I started to follow CFB more closely and I get excited about recruiting like I used to the draft. I just need my team to stop sucking like the cowboys and I’ll be okay.

    For Jerry to go from belligerent to capitulating so quickly and quietly, and this to go through soon after, there must be some sort of back door deal going on.
