Commish to work for a buck under work stoppage

Yes, it's true.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said earlier today he will earn just $1 if there is a work stoppage in the NFL after the collective bargaining agreement expires in March.

But don't expect to see Goodell in the welfare line. He currently rakes in $10 million a year including bonuses. The NFL's chief negotiator, Jeff Pash, who collects nearly $5 million per year, will do the same.

“Let me emphasize that we are fully committed to doing everything possible to reach a new collective bargaining agreement without any disruption to our business. The entire senior leadership team stands with me in its commitment to resolving the CBA issues with the player’s union.

“While several other executives have also volunteered to make additional reductions to their compensation, I have asked them not to take that step at this time as we continue our negotiating efforts.”

NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith remains steadfast in his belief that the league will lock the players out after the March 4 deadline.
