Roger Goodell Wants An Ungodly Amount Of Money To Remain NFL Commissioner

Roger Goodell is asking for an absurd raise.

According to ESPN, he wants $50 million a year and a private jet for life to remain in his current role. That’s a substantial bump up from the $30 million he’s making right now.

ESPN also pointed out that there are several owners that don’t clear $50 million a year in earnings. This is just an absurd amount of money, and it leads me to believe that Jerry Jones attempted coup of Goodell might come to fruition.

There’s no way the NFL can’t find somebody at a cheaper rate than $50 million a year. Tack on the fact that Goodell has allowed the league to descend into chaos with the anthem protests, his lack of ability to properly handle player discipline and a host of other problems would be more than enough to justify cutting him loose.
