Bush as next commish?

Postby dream_017 » Wed May 24, 2006 2:23 pm

Looks like Jeb Bush has had a conversation. Looks like he would want to wait until January and it doesn't seem liek the NFL wants to wait that long.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said he was privately approached about his interest in becoming the NFL's next commissioner.

Bush said Tuesday the issue was discussed at a recent meeting with Patrick Rooney Sr., according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Rooney's brother is Dan Rooney, owner of Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers and co-chair of the search committee looking to replace the retiring Paul Tagliabue.

"I met with Mr. Rooney and I said, 'I'm doing my job until I'm finished and then I'm going to consider other things,"' Bush told the newspaper.

Bush has said he will not run for president in 2008. His final term as governor ends in January, although he doesn't believe NFL officials will hold the position open until then.

Tagliabue, who has been commissioner since 1989, announced in March his decision to retire. Although he originally set a July 31 deadline to be out of the job, he has indicated his willingness to stay on longer.

This is the same guy who as a governor, his state couldn't run a successful punch-card ballot election....Do we really want him in charge of the NFL? :-? :-o

For the record... he was NOT involved in the Florida recount. He purposely remained out of it because of the clear conflict of interest. Katherine Harris was the recount goat.

He's eying a whitehouse run in about 8-12 years (to give him enough distance from his brother), so I'm not sure he wants to go into the private sector.

Yeah, this would not be the best thing in the world...I think that family has had plenty of chances to be in a power position...maybe he should leave football alone. :-/
