(KLTV) - Perhaps you remember a movie called Clash of the Titans. It was a fantasy action movie with a plot that pitted men against kings and kings against gods. Well a real-life clash of the titans is going on right now in the ownership ranks of the NFL.
The clash is over the potential contract extension of commissioner Roger Goodell and the titans are Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and other owners that Jones is on the outs with. Jones does not want Goodell to receive the extension without all the owner's approval. Jones appears to be hot for a number of reasons including his frustration with the way Goodell handled the Zeke Elliott punishment, but it has been reported that Jones wants to tie Goodell's salary tied to league performance. Goodell is asking for $50 million in salary and a number of lifelong perks, so the money is not chump change. But tying his compensation to league performance – regardless of the self-serving nature of Jones' motivation – is not a bad idea.
