NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is looking for an extension. But he’s not getting one if the majority of owners have anything to say about it.
Per reports, 17 owners—on a conference call Thursday—are looking to halt any potential extension. So, who’s leading the charge? None other than Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones. So what’s causing the backlash, so to speak?
“The owners on Thursday’s conference call are generally unhappy with Goodell and the NFL’s front office for a variety of reasons, including the player protests staged during the national anthem, issues regarding the relocation of teams to Los Angeles and the league’s handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence case, according to sources.
Still, the report goes on to say that owners are skeptical of an outright firing. Still, is the writing on the wall? An extension due for September isn’t here. Now we’re approaching November. What’s next? Are they perhaps waiting for the holidays? Maybe it’s going to be a little gift for Goodell.
At this point, however, I wouldn’t hold my breath. Goodell probably shouldn’t either.
