As if we don’t have tons of good news, now it seems that Roger Goodell, uber douchebag NFL Commissioner has decided to put another stake in the heart of the NFL. (Try not to laugh too hard wondering how this could be true.)
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to fine Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones millions of dollars for conduct “detrimental to the league” in the wake of clashes over Goodell’s contract extension and the suspension of star running back Ezekiel Elliott, The New York Times reported Monday.
The Times report cited five league officials with direct knowledge of the situation. When contacted by Fox News, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy declined comment.
According to the Times, Goodell was pressured to punish Jones by several of the league’s owners, who believe the Cowboys boss crossed a line this past November when he threatened to sue the six members of the league’s compensation committee over Goodell’s contract. Jones reportedly believed Goodell was overpaid and should have received a more incentive-laden contract.
Some might argue the Cowboys calling themselves America’s Team, but I have run across enough Cowboys fans over the years to know they’re all serious about their team. If Roger Goodell wasn’t the most hated man in professional sports, he certainly will be now.
It does beg the question why a lot of the owners want another stake in the heart of the NFL. But… I know you don’t care and neither do it. It is, however, highly entertaining to watch the NFL play out exactly like the U.S. Government, with lying intrigue, corruption, and one group trying to destroy the other. I never thought I’d be a fan of Jerry Jones, but I hope he kicks Goodell’s ass. Either way, the NFL continues its downward spiral. Good Riddance!
