Jerry Jones: Objection To Goodell Deal Not About Elliott Ban

Apparently, there is a belief among some NFL owners that "Jones instigated Papa John's CEO John Schnatter to disparage the NFL, blaming league leadership for ratings declines and, in turn, a reduction in Papa John's revenues", according to PFT. Cohen claims Blank told owners that the compensation committee would vote unanimously on Goodell's deal.

However, Goodell apparently believes he's doing a fine job and would like to continue doing it. ESPN reported Sunday morning that Goodell's contractual demands, made in early August, included a $50 million annual salary, the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime insurance for his family.

The New York Times reported over the weekend that the committee will meet Monday to discuss Goodell's new contract, a discussion that has taken on a new edge since Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has voiced his displeasure with Goodell's role in shaping the current state of the league.

Blank is the chairman of the compensation committee, and during the week, Jones accused Blank of misleading owners about Goodell's extension.

A report says that National Football League team owners could execute a "nuclear option" against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, Jerry Jones' son, said during a radio interview Monday that he and his father "want what's in the best interest of the league".

"Certainly, we have things we need to discuss that weren't on the table last spring", Jones said.

The 75-year-old Jones said the compensation committee could appease him by agreeing to let the remaining owners review and approve the final contract with Goodell.

Goodell suspended Elliott following a yearlong investigation by the league after prosecutors in OH declined to pursue the domestic violence case, citing conflicting evidence.

That's a reasonable reaction, unless and until Jerry Jones decides to sue his partners to block Goodell's contract.

Jones has managed to alienate a group of very rich, very powerful people who are used to getting their way, pretty much all the time. However they stayed on their side of the field and never came close to meeting like owners typically do before a game.
