Something like that, they do have a president of football operations but he answers to the city counsel who answers to the voters.
Technically I guess you're right

Not a fan of Goodell. But, he is just the owners enforcer. He takes the heat for what the owners want. The owners smile all the way to the bank and stay away from the criticism.

That is actually overtime if you work and live in Europe. In France a full time work week is 35 hours, believe it or not.

Anyway, we should all wish to make that kind of coin full or part time, right?

I almost wish it would go on some more just so that it WOULD cost RG his job.

Daopoulos: NFL, NFLRA deal is done

Daopoulos: NFL, NFLRA deal is done | ProFootballTalk
NBC picked the right year to hire an officiating consultant.

Jim Daopoulos, a long-time official and supervisor of officials, joined NBC this season. And he tells PFT that the NFL and NFL Referees Association have signed a new deal.

A crew is being assembled to work Thursday night’s game between the Browns and Ravens. Then, on Friday, the officials will travel to Dallas to retrieve their equipment and receive their game assignments for Sunday and Monday, with the same crews working together as last year.

Details are still not clear, but Daopoulos says that the much-debated pension issue was resolved with the current defined-benefit plan remaining in place for five years before switching to a 401(k)-style defined contribution plan.

Also, it’s believed that the deal will cover five more years before this one, which means that we’ll potentially be doing this again in 2018.

UPDATE 10:56 p.m. ET: Daopoulos has provided some more facts. The officials will vote on the deal in Dallas on Friday, at which time it will become final. They’ll then participate in a clinic, and head on Saturday to the game sites. Also, the officials will receive a pay raise of four percent, with 12 guaranteed game checks this year and 19 in subsequent years (including preseason). As to the checks they’ve missed this year, the officials will divvy up $2.5 million.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

Thank you owners, refs.

Now I can get back to blaming the right people.
