So the theory is all the owners like Goodell more than Jerry? I doubt this.

They like what he has done for revenue and franchise valuations a lot.

Whether they like it that much...who knows.

I've got to believe Jerry Jones wakes up every morning, looks in the mirror and says "I'm a billionaire, I should ALWAYS get whatever I want..."  repeats it to himself like a mantra every hour on the hour.

My theory on Goodell is that he was the tallest, most ingratiating and handsome executive at NFL HQ, and that is why he got the job.

Jerry is a clown. When deflategate was going on, he was all about Goodell and getting his contract extended.

Once Goodell started going after Elliot, now Jerry has issues?

Jerry needs to go back to searching for his glory holes and retire.

Goodell should go but not just because Jerry says so.

It's certainly one way of getting a job. Sucking up is a vastly underrated skill.

Jerruh has been acting like he's above the league lately. From trying to quash player dissent to getting all pissy when its his player getting suspended for something. Where was he when it was Tomb Raidy getting suspended over a nothing-burger of a "scandal"? I might respect him now if he came out back then and said that suspension was Goodell overreaching and fought that one.

/but no, he wanted Zeke to get Ray Rice's slap on the wrist even though Ray is the one who led to the harsher domestic abuse punishments

The NFL is largely a billionaire's expensive toy club.  The league's commissioner has always been regarded as an errand boy by most of the owners.  And errand boys need to suck it up.

The Cowboys are the most valuable pro-sports franchise not just in the NFL but in the entire world. People typically don't get fired for doing their job better than anyone else on the planet.

Jerry Jones has successfully pushed for all the recent doings in the NFL that drive viewers away, from longer and more commercial breaks to putting his team on the national broadcast every week to games in and potential expansion to London.  The detailed account of the negotiations on the moves to LA by the Chargers and Rams showed that Goodell took part in very little of the process while Jones undermined the relocation committee and ran the show, angering numerous owners in the process.

Goodell was always Jones's puppet, and when others wanted to pull the strings, he got all pissy.  If he pisses enough owners off, they may actube able to force him out.

1. He won't get fired, he'll get bought out
2. It didn't take any type of genius to decide "I want to own my own stadium that will also host top-tier events like the Super Bowl and the Final Four"

Of all the major sports, the NFL players operate from the weakest position.  There are more of them, and their careers are shorter.  If a season gets cancelled, a large number of them will lose 20-25% of their potential career earnings. And because the American public has lost touch with the need for organized labor, public sentiment will favor the owners over the players.  They "just want to see their football", and they unfortunately don't care about the details of "billionaires and millionaires" - despite the fact that half the players will never make $1M in a season.  And ESPN does them no favors; every contract dispute is on the news, fostering resentment at someone bickering over more money than the average viewer will earn in their lifetime.  But we never hear about the shady shiat the owners are doing. No Washington fan should ever side with vulture capitalist Dan Snyder, but they do because his business misdeeds never make CNN, let alone ESPN.

Couple all this with the fact that the owners negotiated the CBA in bad faith (they planned a TV deal where they would get the TV revenue even if there was no season).  And the fact that the non-player NFLPA leadership is just not effective at their jobs.

The owners will always have an advantage, unless a wiser judiciary begins favoring labor over management.  Any warm body with half a clue (and no integrity to keep them up at night) could have wiped the floor with the NFLPA.

It's a bit of a billionaire snit.  Owners won't due this because it will hit the valuations of their own franchises.

As an Eagles fan... I want Jerruh to stay as owner of the Cowboys as long as possible.

Yeah, same thing here.

I'm thinking replace the Giants with the Bengals.  Mike Brown you cheap as fark.

And let's not forget D.C.  The fact that they're mediocre and are STILL the second most expensive franchise is worth a RICO investigation alone.

This has come up before in regards to JJ, back in the late 1980s when he initially negotiated Cowboys-only marketing deals and went around NFL properties.   If it didn't happen then it's not happening now.

Relegate the bottom team's OWNER from each league.  Owner loses all rights.  That would make things extremely interesting.

I'll save you thousands of taxpayer dollars. Who else besides the Cowboys own their stadium, and for a number of years before Jerry World was built, was the most valuable sports team in the US and occasionally the world?

You guessed it - Frank Stallone. Wait, no, it's the Washington Redskins.

Not saying Jerry or any of the current NFL owners should e forced to sell but i expect if they tried it would quickly devolve into a messy and expensive legal fight.

If anyone didn't see it from the Goodell thread...

https://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/n​e​ws/article/13039846/the-cranky-redskin​s-fans-guide-to-dan-snyder

Once this saw print, Snyder sued the City Paper - which anyone who had met the Internet should have realized would be like throwing water on sodium.

It therefore got national traction, and soon Washington fans started getting expressions of sympathy from Cowboys fans.

Which, of course, simply rubbed salt into a raw wound.

Best part is that by acting as a complete asshat ("What do you mean, *acting*?"), Snyder ensured that that article will live on for eternity.

For the record, I'm not really a Washington fan.  If I'm a fan of anyone, it's the Steelers.  But I live in the DC area, and I feel the pain of the local fans.

Also, Washington and Pittsburgh came into the league at about the same time.  Mr. Rooney of the Steelers and Mr. Cooke of Washington were good friends, and the two teams would scrimmage together every year.  It was an open event and a nice 'thank you' to the fans.

Then when Snyder got the team, he threw a fit when he found out that the scrimmages were not being used to bleed high admission prices from the fans, and that therefore there was no money coming in to him.  So the scrimmages were stopped.

Well, Steelers' owner Mr. Rooney *tried* to build his new stadium out of his own pocket.  He saw no reason why taxpayers should foot the bill.

But the city government pulled some shenanigans to block that.  The idea was that if Rooney paid for the stadium, he would call all the shots regarding design, choice of contractors, writing the contracts, oversight, etc.

Whereas if the government / taxpayers built the stadium, the government flunkies could make sure there was a hefty amount of graft built in that would go to themselves and their cronies.

Just saying it's not *always* greedy owners.

Giants ownership released a statement today supporting coach and GM. This season is only a continuation of the chaos that started last season even though they won 11 games . Also I really don't like what they did to tom Coughlin. I have so much respect for that man and the way he carried that organization back to the parcels years
