Don't count on NFL to give Jerry Richardson full Donald Sterling treatment

  Don't count on NFL to give Jerry Richardson full Donald Sterling treatment What Jerry Richardson reportedly did as owner of the Panthers makes him at least as foul as Donald Sterling. The NBA finally threw Sterling out. How brave is the NFL?In fact, an owner who conducted himself like Richardson did face all that. Nearly four years ago, the NBA and Adam Silver took Donald Sterling’s team away from him, and told him he didn’t have to go home, but he had to get the hell out of there.

Brown Convention Center. Roger Goodell is an easy target. No one would say he has handled controversy well. Check out the laundry list of mistakes he's made: Ray Rice, BountyGate, BullyGate, DeflateGate, Colin Kaepernick, and CTE issues have plagued his time as commissioner. One gate is too many gates. The players don't like him, nor do they trust him. The owners used to be behind him . . . until Jerry Jones tried a palace coup. His public record isn't good, and almost any sane person will acknowledge that. But, NFL owners made the right decision extending Goodell's contract. Here are the major reasons why.

  Report: Nationals have talked extension with Bryce Harper Super agent Scott Boras continues to be the talk of the baseball world as teams take up residence in Orlando for the Winter Meetings. His top client, Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals, is now also becoming the talk of the meetings.No, Washington isn’t looking to move the former NL MVP.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell survived bungling the Ray Rice situation, Bountygate Goodell also declined to appear to explain the reasoning behind his decision. Elliott’s side claims Why would the owners extend Goodell ? There’s hardly been a dull moment in Goodell ’ s tenure as commissioner.

2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement

It's important to distinguish what the job of commissioner entails. Commissioners are supposed to steward the sport and act as a representative of ownership interest. His bosses are the owners. They are supposed to tell him what to do. Commissioners in the end represent a bunch of billionaires and gain some type of consensus.

Goodell represented the owners' interests in the last CBA negotiations and he absolutely railroaded the players. If the CBA was a football game, the Owners won 56-3. It wasn't even close.

It probably won't be that easy in 2021, but Goodell has the institutional knowledge business people love to point to as a prerequisite for a good leader. The last thing the owners want is to go into negotiations with someone who hasn't done it before.

Ira Winderman: NBA trade door about to swing open; will Heat take a cut?

  Ira Winderman: NBA trade door about to swing open; will Heat take a cut? You will not find Dec. 15 delineated on any official list of NBA key dates as the de facto start of trade season. But in a league annually reshaped by free agency, it effectively stands as the beginning of open season on the personnel market, for one particular reason: players signed in the offseason cannot be traded until Dec. 15, at the earliest. What the rule does is allow players to settle in if there is a change of address and afford teams the opportunity to test drive their new contracts before any rash decisions.

Goodell ’ s current contract runs through 2018. The five -year extension would leave him in place It’s a strange moment for the NFL . The league was a juggernaut that watched its ratings climb every That might ultimately be Goodell ’ s firewall against Jones’ palace coup. I can’t in good conscience

Skyrocketing franchise valuations

Roger Goodell took over in 2006. Since then, ownership's franchise values have gone through the roof. Take Forbes valuations with a grain of salt, but right now the average NFL franchise value is $2.34 billion. In 2010, the average NFL franchise value was $1.02 billion. In the past six years as commissioner Goodell has increased owners asset value by 100 percent. Remember that whole thing about the commissioner serving the owners? Well on average he's made each of them $1 billion. Yes, billion with a B! That makes Goodell's $40 million per year deal look like pennies.

International Expansion

Here's another area where people don't give Goodell enough credit. He actually worked in the international group at one point before becoming commissioner. When the London game was created everyone was quick to make fun of the NFL. It's been a success by any standard. There's not a team moving to the United Kingdom any time soon, but the games there now are well attended. The NFL also expanded into Mexico, and the league hasn't had any issues. They've struggled with China, but there's a lot that goes into playing a game in Asia.

The U.S. market is essentially saturated. The NFL has fans in urban and rural areas. Both women and men play fantasy football and enjoy the game. NFL owners need to make the game global if they want to keep making more money. Goodell has been a success spreading the game outside of the domestic market.

Television rights and the future of distribution

The narrative that the NFL is in trouble with their TV deals is completely overblown. Normal NFL Sunday games have 10 to 12 million people watching, every week. To put that in perspective, the NBA is celebrating viewership numbers in 2017 as one of it's best years in recent memory. Nationally televised NBA games are averaged 2 to 3 million viewers. The NFL is only having a television problem because fewer people are watching, when it's still the most popular piece of content on TV. It's not even close.

Of course, the marketplace is changing. Technology companies are becoming media and distribution companies. They need content. Normal cable and broadcast operators want the NFL, but they need to recalibrate their expectations. There's no better person than Goodell for this job.
