Well the goals he would need to meet in Cleveland are pretty low these days.

He can always go work for Trump.

But this couldn't happen to a nicer ahole.

Non-guaranteed contracts with difficult to reach incentive clauses still fine for players, though.

Actually, I'd love for them to approve his deal just to see the fit Jerry Jones will continue to throw. "Oh no, I'm not being treated as the preeminent owner who gets his way on everything, better sue even though I have no case!"

"He feels as if the owners have made a lot of money and he should be compensated accordingly," the source said. "The incentives thing really angers him."

And players don't make the owners a lot of money? That's what you're going with?

the $2 bil difference has to do with whether the team owns the Stadium it plays in or leases it from city it suckered into building it.  The Redskins used to be the most valuable franchise in the league because Jack kent Cooke built Fed ex out of his own pocket

At the time, the attempt to use eminent domain to seize the Baltimore Colts from Robert Irsay and Indianapolis appeared like a legal Hail Mary, but in retrospect it seems like the last chance to save NFL football from the incompetence and ego-driving insanity of the billionaire owners.

In Europe, "Football" is actually competitive and clubs face promotion and relegation.  In the US, salary caps enforce the cartel's profits, while the teams share the same "participation" paycheck (Green Bay gets the numbers as well, keeping them honest in ways other leagues would never allow).  The comparison between "capitalist" America and "socialist" EU is striking.

Goodell doesn't approach the awfulness of Selig. His presence taints the Hall of Fame so long as his plaque is left in there.

I keep thinking the owners and the league will settle with Colin K. quickly so as to keep the Super Bowl clear of controversy. Besides, they apparently did their collusion via emails and phone so Colin will be able to enter all those conversations into court.

Now it appears the owners aren't going to do anything until Roger G. kneels down in front of them. Super Bowl and Colin K. be damned.

I'm not.

The fact Goodell's been allowed to last this long after significant meddling in several high-profile disciplinary cases, provide contradictory policies on player safety while pushing for more games and a franchise in another country AND messing with the Pro Bowl is ridiculous.

You ain't worth a guarantee, carrot top.  Face it.

Euro Soccer is grotesquely unbalanced. Only a couple of teams have the resources to win any of the big 5 leagues, and Financial Fair Play keeps anyone from becoming one of those handful of teams that isn't already

Yeah, that statement made me do a spittake. The Cleveland Browns entered this season with 300-1 odds to win the Super Bowl. Over half the teams in the EPL (11 of 20, to be exact) have longer odds than that for their 2018 championship. There's a reason why Leicester City was such a huge international story a couple of years ago. Their odds were more than 15 times as long as the Browns'.

You hang out a lot on the Big Soccer forums, don't you, M?

I think the ESPN article cited in TFA is more interesting.  It says Jones is unhappy about how the Rams' and Chargers' move to LA was handled?  He was the guy who orchestrated it!  Let him take the fall for people in LA not wanting a product they went without for 20 years having it shoved down their throats!

Also, Jones has his own idea on who should replace Goodell?  Could it be Jones himself?

Jerrah lost control of his puppet, the other 31 teams have hated him since Jack Kent Cook was alive, the players are talking about striking before 2021...he may want to cut bait and sell.

feanorn: Goodell doesn't approach the awfulness of Selig. His presence taints the Hall of Fame so long as his plaque is left in there.


The MLB owners can go fark themselves for Selig.  They got pissed that a real independent commissioner stepped in and prevented a lockout from interfering with a season.  So they voted Vincent out, and installed a de facto toady who proceeded to let the sport have its worst season since 1919.  Baseball succeeded in spite of Selig.

Goodell is the same way.  Tagliabue retired, and instead of looking outside for an actual leader, they found an owners' lackey who would be "tough on misbehaving players".  Really, Goodell has done jack shiat for the league.  He rode the coattails of Rozelle and Tagliabue, he got handed a golden goose. And they put their heads in the sand for years over the CTE issue, got pissy about player protests, tried to negotiate a lockout in utterly bad faith, and now the owners are looking at lowered growth projections and are getting frustrated.  The haves and have-nots among the owners are pissed at each other.

/For all of David Stern's faults, he and Adam Silver have managed to not let a divide like that ruin the NBA.
//and Bettman is still tied for worst commissioner in my lifetime with Selig
///canceling a postseason is the ultimate sign that you're a farkup.

Fark off Goodell.   The players have to deal with that shiat nowlets see how you like it.

Goodell is incompetent. He's lucky to get any kind of an offer.

Yup.  It still pisses me off what the city of Pittsburgh did to the Steelers' owner, Mr. Rooney.

When the old Three Rivers Stadium was due to be torn down, Mr. Rooney proposed a plan to build a new stadium for the Steelers.  He wanted to build it on his own dime.  He could afford it, and Pittsburgh had been good to him, his family, and his team.

Unfortunately, the Pittsburgh local officials decided they didn't want *HIM* building the stadium - because then *THEY* would not be able to steer where the Graft involved in the construction went.  So they pulled some legislative shenanigans to keep Rooney from being able to go ahead with the project.

Moving the design and construction of Heinz Field from a private to a public project didn't bother these assholes - it would be the taxpayers paying the tab, not them themselves.  But *They* would be the ones controlling and pocketing the graft.

I agree with you wholeheartedly - taxpayers should be buying stadiums.  But in a few cases, it's not the owners who are the bad guys.

Not only did he not bat an eye, he was one of Roger's biggest supporters in those decisions.

Eh, and Kraft was totally fine when it was the Saints getting f*cked.

I'm perfectly fine with getting things right instead of perpetuating the dumbassery because dumbasses were dumb in the past. Goodell is worthless and has been worthless for his entire tenure.

That said, fark being the next guy, who will inherit a tanking product that is guaranteed to lose hundreds of millions, if not billions, in the next rights contracts.
