PAPER: Jerry Jones Plotting Coup Against Roger Goodell As NFL Carnage Continues
Are Roger Goodell’s days numbered as NFL commissioner? A new report reveals Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is plotting Goodell’s ouster, as the NFL continues to struggle through the National Anthem kneeling controversy.
New York Post reports:
Jerry Jones sees a prone Roger Goodell, and he’s pouncing.
The influential Cowboys owner was a leader of a 17-owner conference call Thursday discussing whether they could halt a pending contract extension for the commissioner, according to an ESPN report Sunday.
Jones tried holding up the talks last month, according to Sports Business Daily, after Goodell slammed Ezekiel Elliott with a six-game suspension (a war that is now being waged in court). Amid another controversy this month — the national anthem saga has necessitated multiple owners-players meetings, as Goodell won’t mandate the players stand and Jones is threatening Cowboys onto their feet — Jones appears to be relaunching an attempt at dethroning the commissioner.
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Roger Goodell’s future with the NFL is in question as the National Anthem controversy continues to take its toll on the league.
Real Clear Life reports:
As the National Football League has struggled to come up with a game-plan to handle the controversy surrounding players who kneel in protest during the National Anthem, the issue has had a ripple effect behind closed doors.
And that includes a delay on a contract extension of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, ESPN is reporting.
“The anthem issue has overridden everything — and I do mean everything,” a source told ESPN.
That’s because total viewership has plummeted over first six weeks of the NFL season— dropping 7.5 percent compared to the same period last year season — spurred by outrage from both sides over the league handling of the #TakeAKnee movement.
As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft previously reported, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has made over $212 million in salary since 2006.
Goodell is the highest paid person in the NFL.

And he’s destroying the league.
Roger Goodell is destroying the league.
The NFL is losing viewers like a sieve thanks to his weak leadership.
The NFL has lost 3.3 million viewers in two years since Colin Kaepernick first started to sit and kneel during the national anthem in protest.
And the NFL continues to lose millions in income as viewers turn off the unpatriotic sports league.
