Roger Goodell 'Wants $50 Million A Year And A Private Jet For LIFE To Stay On As Head Of The NFL’

Chris Pleasance, Daily Mail

  • NFL Compensation Committee currently debating future contract for chairman
  • Roger Goodell has reportedly demanded $50million a year, up from $30million
  • He also 'wants the use of a private jet for life and health insurance for his family'
  • Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, is fighting to have a say over Goodell's pay package
  • Jones' issue with Goodell appears to stem from Ezekiel Elliott's treatment 

 

Roger Goodell has demanded $50million per year and a private jet for life in order to stay on as NFL chairman, it has been reported.

Goodell made the demands in a written counterproposal to the six-man NFL Compensation Committee which is due to debate his pay package on Monday, sources told ESPN.

Earlier this year all 32 NFL team owners voted to renew Goodell's contract, which runs until 2019, and nominated the committee to negotiate on their behalf.

But amid plummeting viewer numbers and anger over anthem protests, some owners are now fighting to take matters back into their own hands.

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has threatened to block Goodell's new contract with a lawsuit unless all owners are given a say on terms.

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
