Roger Goodell: PAID

Postby Doctor » Wed Dec 06, 2017 6:39 pm

PAID PAID PAID PAID PAID.

Sorry, one PAID didn't seem like enough. Five year, $200M. Wow.

Roger Goodell has signed a five-year contract extension to remain the commissioner of the NFL, according to a letter obtained by ESPN.

A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the new contract would be worth $200 million over the life of the contract -- about $40 million annually -- if owners approve all the bonuses and all the incentives are met. The new deal runs through the 2023 season.

Roger Goodell got his extension. Now what? NFL Insiders react
The NFL commissioner has signed a new deal that could pay him $40 million per year through the 2023 season. What should Goodell's No. 1 priority be now? Our experts weigh in.
The base salary of the new contract is in the single-digit millions, a source had told Schefter. Roughly 85 percent of the total potential compensation package is from bonuses, which would be subject to ownership approval and validation.

The six members of the NFL compensation committee, which had been granted permission to negotiate the extension, said it supported the signed contract in a letter to NFL owners.

"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," the letter said. "... We are pleased to report that there is a nearly unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now."

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who heads the compensation committee, told The MMQB he was "relieved" that Goodell had signed the deal.

"I'm happy that it's over. I was just telling Roger that, in the history of the NFL, I'm not sure a big decision has been so transparent as this one," Blank told The MMQB. "We got a lot of input from a lot of owners, a lot of guidance from them, and we feel very good about what developed out of that."

The guy is a douche, but the contract is not really out of line given compensation in the league in general.

I was really hoping for Goodell to go. This marked the first time I was rooting for Jerry Jones.

You don't know what Jerry was fighting for then. Jerry wasn't trying to get Goodell fired. He wanted provisions put in his contract in different issues and felt the other owners weren't discussing those things.

There's nothing insane about it. Top players get paid comparably, the 200 is if he hits all bonuses. There's only on commissioner compared to over 1500 players. You could argue that the person shouldn't be paid that, but it's reasonable for the position.
