Roger Goodell wants to get paid... a lot. The NFL’s Compensation Committee is set to hold a conference call Monday to discuss Goodell’s latest counter offer on a contract extension, which is a $50 million salary, as well as lifetime use of a private let and a lifetime health insurance for Goodell and his family — according to a report by ESPN.

Goodell reportedly makes around $30 million a year now, according to league sources and some are privately balking at the figure Goodell has responded with.

"That number for Roger just seems too much," the owner said. "It's offensive. It's unseemly."

If Goodell gets the $50 million salary he would be making more than Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers combined, which is beyond the pale for some owners who believe the league commissioner shouldn’t make any more money than the league’s highest paid player. It’s also mentioned in the report that Goodell’s desired salary is more than some team owners make in a year, outside appreciation of their investment.

It’s not just the big figure Goodell is asking for, it’s the use of a private plane for life and health insurance forever that are perks nobody else in the league gets — but it’s Goodell’s prerogative to push for them.

This is the latest step in an unusually public battle over the future of the commissioner in the NFL. Goodell isn’t planning to step down, according to the report and owners are arguing about his future and Jerry Jones is making things public. Going to be an interesting week.

Jerry is just mad because Zeke was suspended for six games. He was on board with Goodell's extension before the suspension happened.

Exactly.  Pretty safe bet his camp is behind these leaks.

Like someone else said, considering his current salary and what the NFL is making in revenue the salary request was not unreasonable.  Jerry knows that the average person will look at the numbers and think it’s outrageous he would get paid that much.

Goodell has constantly done the owner’s bidding and everything was fine until his star player got caught up in it.  Jerry is a jerk for that and I hope the 25 or so owners against him win this fight.

This is truly a power struggle over who controls this league. The league, or one or two strong owners. Jerry owns the highest valued franchise. He also owns Legends who sells ALL the PSLs. That means he will push for more markets to go PSL like we did. Bad decision.

Arthur is on the side of competition and the league as a whole. He's with Goddell. But I think Goddell IS asking too much considering the drop off in viewership and attendance. The NFL has reached its zenith. His excessive demands are helping Jerry's agenda. Which I'm certain is about NOTHING other than enriching Jerry Jones.

If Jerry wins this fight expect the league to become MUCH more like baseball. Less parity, one or two big franchises controlling things, and less shared revenue. Just more bad decisions. Parity BUILT this league.

I don't think Jerry's beef is entirely based off of the revenue Goodell made for the league in past years.

His discontent is rooted in the Ezekiel Elliot issue, his mis-handling of player discipline, and his handling of the anthem protests (which will result in less revenue going forward).

I think it is funny that people are defending Goodell as if they have never criticized his job performance in the past. He is a very polarizing commissioner.

Meh. It's probably not close to the compensation packages some other top-tier executives in other industries receive. 

I'm just having a hard time feeling surprised or angry about this. 

Actually it far exceeds what some of the top CEO's earn. The CEO of Walmart made ~$22 million last year. The CEO of Volkswagon earned just over $10 million and the CEO of Exxon earned just over $25 million. Those are 3 of the biggest compaines in the world.

Goodell can ask for whatever he likes.  It's a negotiation, and AB and the rest of the compensation committee are experienced businessmen.  They're not going to overpay, but they pay Goodell as if he were the CEO of a multi-billion dollar business that has overseen tremendous growth of the business.

Also, you can't compare what players earn vs what the commissioner earns.  Players earnings are irrelevant to the discussion.

These CEO's get compensation packages though (hundreds of millions in stock options for example).

I didn’t mean to imply it was.  I just realized afterwards I didn’t mention here what Jerry is upset about.  Agree with you wholeheartedly which is why I think Jerry is a clown for this.  If this was Fletcher Cox, Odell Beckham, or Josh Norman caught up in this Zeke scandal we wouldn’t hear a peep from him.

Goodell and the NFL have screwed the pooch on a ton of issues but Jerry Jones crying foul now reeks of him basically saying I call the shots here because I made you. (Which I think he believes with regards to Goodell and the NFL we see today)

And while Goodell has arguably mishandled the protests by straddling the fence I’d argue it’s a tough spot to be in and Jerry Jones’ talking tough approach would have been all bad if the commissioner would have done it.

As I type this I literally have no idea but I would argue that those companies probably have a lot more costs of goods, employees to pay, etc.  Not sure but that’s just my guess.

I agree he's polarizing, but what could he have done differently with the high-profile issues that wouldn't have been polarizing?

Their revenues and profits also far exceed that of the NFL (20 - 50 times larger). The main reason is that they have shareholders they are accountable to and who wouldn't put up with it. That is exactly what Jones is doing now and I can't blame him rbh

Exactly. It makes sense to aim high when negotiating. Doesn't mean you'll get everything you ask for. That's the whole purpose of negotiating. Both sides will ultimately have to compromise.

Of course their revenues far exceed but you’re talking about companies with international operations and a ton more salaries to pay and that’s just for starters. 32 NFL franchises based in the states, operations, etc. pulling down around $8 billion in revenue...$50M for the comissioner’s salary doesn’t seem crazy to me at all.  He was making mid-30s as is.

This is only an issue to Jerry because of the Zeke situation.  It’s reminiscent to the owners making players out to be the bad guys for refusing to take a smaller share of revenue during CBA negotiations in 2011.
