NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! :thumbdown

He has not shown any qualifications for this job. I sincerely hope that they don't give him a job based upon a publicity stunt. Surely there are many more qualified applicants.

I heard on the radio the other day that she actually withdrew her name from consideration for the Commisioners job. She is staying with Bush as long as he needs her.

He is a politican and you need to be one when between the owners and the players. So I guess you would be qualified, but I still don't want him.

It would not work for President Clinton I don't think.

I would think the job requires a very busy schedule and time....I don't think he has either because he makes a mint doing speeches around the country and why would he want to actually work hard at something when he can pick and choose a speech here and there and still make millions?

He's got Hillary to contend with. She's probably going to run for president and anything Bill touches that has power attached to it she wants a piece of...so if he were NFL commish she'd have to be equally NFL commish. They were co-presidents after all.

His health. If he's just getting well now after all those heart issues why would he want to deal with the drama that is the NFL.

He's so much better off just helping out President Bush with the hurricane relief thing they have going on and being Hillary's first man....uh lady...uh whatever they call men behind powerful political women.

Seems as qualified as anyone with a resume that has a position on it that only 5 living men can speak to.

I was never a big fan of Clinton but I have to admit he is a very smart man. If he isnt sure how to do somthing he will bring in a professional to help him with it. I think it would be kinda wierd having a expresident as the comish.

I never did agree with the want to impeach Clinton for cheating on his wife. He cheated and lied, but that didn't get JFK in trouble. I was thinking, how about the Falcons' owner as commish? The way he made the Falcons' seats affordable made it possible for many ATL residents to watch the Falcons. If he instituted that policy for the whole NFL, maybe more people, including myself, will be able to watch their team in a stadium, not just on TV.

Bill don't need no stinkin' interns! The NFL has cheerleaders!! :drool:

Good point, man. What are the qualifications, anyway? idonno:

Seriously, though, my concerns with Clinton is that he's never ran a business, much less a multi-billion dollar empire like the NFL. In addition, he might tend to be a populist commish who could make decisions based upon public perception, which could ruin a good thing. The public knows squat! This is all just speculation, of course.

If you consider that most of the NFL owners are likely Republicans, I have serious doubts they'd ever agree to let him be their leader.

Besides, wouldn't they want someone with better character and morals to be the face of the league?

The only positive I see is the endless stream of joke possibilities this would give us.

Actually if Clinton wanted the job he could get it in a heartbeat -- his national approval ratings are around 80% right now. His popularity has always been very high, but after the Tsunami and Katrina relief efforts with Bush Senior his ratings went through the roof. He is very well accepted across the political spectrum -- now his wife on the other hand...

Are you talking about George Bush? He aint a fiscal conservative and he certainly does not have the character or morals that I would my nephew and niece to expound. He has hurt the office of the president in everyway fathomable, except for his administartions attempt to usurp more power from the legislative and judicial branches. It makes total sense that a weak president would need more executive power to push his selfish, religious, obstinate agenda on us.

I do not think the current owners would concur with your synopsis.

No, I was NOT referring to GWB at all. I was referring to Clinton. And I was not in any way trying to make a political statement. I was just going with facts. Clinton's character and morals are (regardless of party affiliation) questionable. He cheated on his wife, and he lied. Those are facts. I'm sure many traits of both Clinton AND Bush could easily be called into question. But the initial issue of Clinton being the NFL Commissioner was what I was referring to. Generally speaking, and there are always exceptions, the extremely wealthy (like the NFL owners) tend to be more often Republicans. Bill Clinton most certainly is NOT a Republican. Therefore, it stands to reason that they would in all likelyhood not want him as their leader.

I was not in any way trying to make a pro-Bush or anti-Clinton statement. I was just sticking to the known facts. Shoot...I can't stand either one of them! Politicians in general are not the type of people I like to be around, and I don't trust any of them to make decisions based on the best interest of the people they serve, but rather on who lines their pockets with the most money. Hmm...on second thought, maybe a politician WOULD be a good choice for NFL owners!!!

Appreciate the response. I was well aware of your funning and I was the one who went political. I just can't stand a social conservative who runs as a fiscal one. I think Clinton would be a good comissioner, I just think he would better serve the country in another capacity whether it be in the public or private sector.

We just need to get over the impropiety thing. We all have done or know someone that has something worse and still hang out with that person. We could at least use this man for he is quite experienced and educated to help us in some form. Surely a christian country would be more forgiving once the politics are stripped away.

The answer lies in your question.

It's the Jim Rome Show...are you expecting a particular level of credibility?

I believe you're talking about the guy in office after Clinton. It's actually one of his peeps, Condi Rice, who is rumored to be a candidate for commish.

Startling in its breadth, Benedict and Yaeger's investigation into the off-the-field violence and criminal behavior that pervades the culture of professional football is as eye opening as it is disturbing. That these guys get into trouble is nothing new, but when their offenses are collected in one place--with mug shots, court records, police reports, and interviews with arresting officers--the effect is as surreal as the statistics: 21 percent of the NFL's players have been charged with a serious crime.
How serious? The docket begins with assault, rape, and domestic violence and keeps spiraling out of control. These are not just blind allegations; the authors name names and match felonies to players. Some of the better-known examples: Cornelius Bennett--rape and sexual assault; Cortez Kennedy--domestic violence; Michael Irvin--cocaine and marijuana possession; Nate Newton--sexual assault; Warren Moon--domestic violence; Jake Plummer--sexual abuse; Andre Rison--aggravated assault; Bruce Smith--driving under the influence; and Deion Sanders--aggravated assault, disorderly convict, trespassing, and battery.

Yes I love my football but some these guys can get away with murder if they can play some football.

Sorry to disagree with you, pal. None of this sits well with me. We don't need to get over the impropriety thing! He was the President of the United States...He should have been held to decent Moral standards. I don't forgive his little games. I don't condone anyone doing this...especially the President of the United States.:twocents:

lol: nice i needed the laugh.

Talking to a social conservative is pretty much like this :brickwall

On Edit: if Bush wasn't from Texas....

Yea TV revenue sharing and a cap limit isn't anywhere near socialist which helps out everyone in the league including fans....oops anyway...how dare i say something good about that system. I speak evil i am sure.:spy:

That aside if he wanted the job he'd have. I don't think he will though. What he's doing now is too cush and he'll be campaining hard for democrats in the next two years.

Condi Rice? .... no. Might as well push for Drew Rosenhaus to be the next Commish. Both would do their Damnest to run the league into the ground.

I'm weary of the idea of an owner being commish. See Bud Selig.

I would like to see Tags give someone an endorsement. I do think he stepped down at the right time and someone in his office would probably be a good call.
