2017 NFL Week Ten Results

After week ten of the NFL season is in the books; we realize that these have been some of the NFL's darkest days. Just when you think that things couldn't get any worse, what with the whole National Anthem boycott debacle, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is in negotiations for a pay raise that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is against. Here's what's going on: Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank leads a committee of owners to negotiate Goodell’s contract. Jones immerses himself into the process and wants more safeguards, more full ownership involvement. Jones makes it clear that he thinks Goodell is already overpaid. Jones is also not happy about the NFL six-game suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott and the promises he was made by Goodell in that process. Jones is not happy with the way Goodell managed the national anthem issue. Jones starts to put the screws to Blank and to the committee, threatening a lawsuit to block any Goodell contract movement. Jones says Blank made promises about the process that he broke. Goodell reportedly wants $49.5 million in annual salary, a private jet, and lifetime health insurance for himself and his family, as relayed by anonymous sources. Goodell, already pocketing $30 million a year, is asking for a 19.5 million dollar raise for being partly responsible for this whole mess of a season. I happen to agree with Jones; this is not exactly the time to ask for that kind of a raise based on his recent performance as leader of the NFL.  Here are the week’s results:
