    (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.
    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.
    Kraft is on the search committee, wonder if he's behind the Fidelity guy from Concord? Why would you leave a major cash cow position at Fidelity for NFL Commisioner?

    Why do you need Deloitte & Touche to count 32 ballots?

    It's not the counting but the supposed impartiality that they would offer.

    If they want impartial vote-counting, shouldn't they have gotten Katherine Harris instead??
