According to The New York Times, commissioner Roger Goodell sent an e-mail on Wednesday to his staff saying he’d take a $1 salary (a pay cut of about $10 million) if a lockout occurred. Naturally, it was leaked to the NFL Network, and spread quickly across Twitter. To counter, DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the players union, tweeted that he would work for just 68 cents if an agreement was reached by next Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The commissioner and the executive director aren’t of need of that much money, and there’s just no way a new collective bargaining agreement could be reached before kickoff in Dallas.
