Betting Goodell’s bottom dollar
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (pictured) will cut his salary to $1 if there is a work stoppage after the collective bargaining agreement expires in March. Goodell, who makes about $10 million a year including bonuses, said in a memo to his staff Wednesday that chief negotiator Jeff Pash will do the same. Pash makes nearly $5 million a year. Goodell also has asked the league’s compensation committee to delay any bonus payments to him until after a deal is reached with the NFL Players Association. “Let me emphasize that we are fully committed to doing everything possible to reach a new collective bargaining agreement without any disruption to our business,” Goodell said.
