Quote

Goodell, according to ESPN, has made a bid to raise his salary to $49.5 million a year, which would pay him more than the CEOs of IBM, Time Warner, Hewlett Packard, Disney, Nike, Oracle, Yahoo and J.P. Morgan Chase, among others. That is indecent. It is crazy. And it is irresponsible. Small wonder Jones threatened to sue the compensation committee, and wants more transparency on Goodell’s contract. While the owners fight among themselves, the rest of us can only sit around slack- jawed with wonder at their total loss of good sense and perspective.

 

Good lord.

I'm pulling for Jerry Jones on this one all the way.

He may or may not have ulterior motives in opposing Goodell, but at least he's opposing him.

Goodell is a nit wit so I understand where Jones is coming from. We are looking at a failing NFL that is a damn monopoly and the ceo thinks he needs a raise?

Sally left off a prominent reason for "audience disaffection" in the list in her article though.  Gosh, I wonder why Sally "my politics lie to the left of Vladimir Lenin" Jenkins would do such a thing?

I have no sense of market value for that sort of work, but it's fair to say that job has gotten a lot more difficult in the last couple year. And it sure doesn't look like maintaining the NFL's financial success is going to be easy going forward. 

So, it's not necessarily crazy for a person to request a hefty raise as compensation for more stressful work; particularly if that person is considering walking away from it. (Could he be?)

His total screw up of the protest was just his latest screw up. Seriously though anyone on this board sans a couple could be the commissionor of the NFL. It's has the job complexity of running a Applebee's restaurant.
