    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.

Plenty of other good executives out there.
    Good questions. If the fans, players and a couple very influential and powerful owners hate the guy, why did Goodell get a new deal?

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

    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.
