National Football League expects contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell to be completed soon

The political social and economic future of the NFL is in the hands of the owners as they are currently discussing whether to bring back the largely productive but publically ridiculed Roger Goodell

Jerry Jones opposes the contract extension being negotiated with Roger Goodell. La Canfora‏ also noted the league pointed toward a unanimous vote, including a yes from Jones, from the spring to give Goodell a new deal through 2024.

Ezekiel Elliot has another hearing today at to consider his appeal for suspension and whether or not he will play this Sunday. If it winds up in the NFL's favor, Jones is likely to use every resource he can to make sure Goodell's tenure comes to an abrupt end.

Jones is furious at the NFL.

Jones believes he was lied to by Goodell who told him Elliott, who was never charged or arrested in the case, would face no suspension and considers it an unforgivable breach of trust, according to a source.

Kevin Spacey removed from Ridley Scott's film
Spacey's former publicist said last week that the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment". Spacey, who was late oil tycoon John Paul Getty in the film, will be replaced by Christopher Plummer .

Though the sources didn't know that person's identity, the fact that Jones might be teeing up his own candidate has lost him potential support in ousting Goodell.

After joining fellow owners in May in unanimously authorizing the compensation committee to work on a contract extension with Goodell, Jones last month at owners meetings in NY called Goodell's proposed new contract "the most one-sided deal ever", according to OTL, which noted that Goodell has earned more than $200 million since he was elected commissioner in August 2006. Goodell is an employee of the league who has a salary of around $10 million.

The league has grown to unprecedented financial success under Goodell. Goodell became commissioner in 2006. While ESPN reported that multiple owners had expressed frustration that the league had not mandated that players stand for the national anthem, some also felt the talks between the league and the players were beneficial.

Last season, Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback then playing with the 49ers, began kneeling during the national anthem before games to protest police killings of unarmed black men in the US.
