Have you thought to yourself: “surely NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, must be on his way out, because he’s basically destroyed the NFL. Noooo way will they keep him on much longer.”
I mean… that’s how I felt.
TURNS OUT WE WERE TOTALLY OFF-BASE, FOLKS! THE BUCKEROO IS GETTING A NEW $200 MILLION CONTRACT.
So basically he’s about to make 200 times more than most of us will make in our entire life. For f*cking up the NFL.
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 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.”
What in the actual hell?
Guess the NFL reeeeeally wants to keep sucking!
