NFLPA's DeMaurice Smith Says Roger Goodell Lied About Changes to Conduct Policy

HBO Real Sports goes inside the NFLPA as Bryant Gumbel interviews DeMaurice Smith

Goodell replaced Paul Tagliabue as commissioner in 2006.

Goodell earned more than $31 million in the league's 2015 fiscal year, according to a tax filing. Because the two sides have yet to formally agree to a new deal, the parameters and financial details surrounding the looming pact have yet to come to light.

The deal is expected to be five years in length, which would keep Goodell at the league's helm through at least the 2024 season, per Monday's report.

India floods: Death toll rises to 153
As many as 33 out of 75 districts in the most populated Indian state are reeling from floods that have left 55 people dead. Flood waters, which mainly came from neighbouring Nepal, are rising fast and affecting lakhs of people in four districts.

The report adds his contract will be similar to the old one with a few million dollars in base salary with his bonus determined by the owners.

There have been plenty of other major controversies during Goodell's leadership: the ongoing concussion lawsuits and settlements, Ray Rice's domestic violence incident, Michael Vick's dog-fighting ring, Ben Roethlisberger's sexual assault allegations, and more.

If the National Football League eventually comes to terms with Goodell soon, New England Patriots fans will have the chance to personally congratulate the man who used his unilateral discipline authority to suspend Tom Brady on Thursday, Sept. 7 when he visits Gillette Stadium for the season opener. That goes a long way in explaining why the commissioner is close to a contract extension. NFL Player's Association leader DeMaurice Smith has talked of a possible strike or lockout, and some vocal critics of Goodell and the NFL, like Richard Sherman, have said that the players need to be prepared to strike to elicit actual change.
