    Five finalists for commissioner post announced

    (July 30, 2006) -- The special eight-man Search Committee appointed by NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue to recommend candidates for his successor announced the names of five individuals to be placed before NFL club owners at a meeting Aug. 7-9 at the Renaissance Hotel in Chicago.

    The five nominees, according to Committee co-chairmen Dan Rooney of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jerry Richardson of the Carolina Panthers, are:
    • ROGER S. GOODELL, 47, New York, N.Y. Executive Vice President and COO, NFL.
    • GREGG H. LEVY, 53, Washington, D.C. Partner, Covington & Burling law firm.
    • FREDERICK R. NANCE, 52, Cleveland, Ohio. Partner, Squire Sanders & Dempsey law firm.
    • ROBERT L. REYNOLDS, 54, Concord, Mass. Vice Chairman and COO, Fidelity Investments.
    • MAYO A. SHATTUCK III, 51, Baltimore, Md. Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Constellation Energy.
    In addition to Rooney and Richardson, the Search Committee includes Al Davis, Oakland Raiders; Clark Hunt, Kansas City Chiefs; Woody Johnson, New York Jets; Jerry Jones, Dallas Cowboys; Robert Kraft, New England Patriots; and Mike McCaskey, Chicago Bears.

    The finalists were nominated by the committee from a group of 185 candidates, which was narrowed to 11. These 11 candidates were interviewed by the Search Committee in Detroit earlier this week. All candidates underwent an extensive interview process assisted by the executive search firm of Korn Ferry.

    The balloting procedures set forth by Commissioner Tagliabue, who will chair the meeting, will be as follows:
    • Each candidate will make a presentation to the 32 clubs Aug. 7 in Chicago.
    • Each club will be represented by an owner or owner designee.
    • After these presentations, the clubs will divide into subgroups. Each candidate then will be interviewed by owners or club representatives in each subgroup for a specific period of time.
    • When these interviews and subsequent discussions among the league's members are completed, the voting will begin.
    • Procedures will be set for determining whether particular ballots will be secret or open.
    • The affirmative vote of two-thirds of the league's member clubs, i.e. 22 votes of 32, is needed to elect a new commissioner. Attendance by every club in the league is mandatory.
    • Deloitte & Touche USA will count the votes.

    The only guy in that group I'd be all that geeked about is Roger Goodell. I wanted Jeb Bush, if for no other reason than to hear the whining.

    :grin:

    Maybe with his involvement in the league already he would be a somewhat logical choice. It would take him less time to learn the ropes.

    What does he know about football???

    Can you imagine the nickname that last guy "SHATTUCK" would be stuck with from irate (it's inevitable) football fans for the next 20 years? He will become known by a vulgar term derived by changing two letters of his name. And the Cleveland lawyer would of course be called Nancy.

    I was really talking more about a guy I know here in Tucson. It would have cracked me up to see him got apoplectic.

    You were fun to discuss it with, but you weren't whining IMO. You have an unreasonable dislike of him :p: but you didn't whine. This guy nearly wet his pants fuming.

    I know a man here in Tucson with that last name. Must be a wealthy family because he's got some bucks behind him too. I've said more than a few of those irate names at him.

    I'm gonna guess that out there in the desert that he's in the minority.

    I'd have no problem with a big name being the commish -- I just didn't think the Jeb made much sense given the poor approval rating his family is generating at this time.

    I think it made great sense, but I'm not blinded by political hatred so I won't even pretend to understand. He turned down the honor and responsibility. End of story.

    Who's in minority?
