    I doubt he could be Gov. of Florida and NFL commish. That would give an advantage to the Dolphins and Bucs.

    Although I guess Gary Trudeau was able to write Doonesbury and be the Prime Minister of Canada. I guess some people are better at multi-tasking than I am. :singing:

    It's a real story, not just idle conjecture. Is Bush a lawyer ? If not, he's off to a good start in being better than Tagliabue.

    I would strong suggest closing this thread before Belichickfan pollute this thread with his political garbage.

    Give me a break, I don't even like his brother and you know it. Jeb is a legitimite candidate and it's, therefore, worth discussing.

    Look JR4 posted this on the political forum and didn't get enough reponse over there to suit him, so he came over here with it.

    If you need to post on the bull**** thread- do it over there. It's just sitting there.

    Give JR4 what he wants and he'll go away.:enranged:

    This isn't a political story - not until the BFH (Bush Family Haters) make it one, anyway. It's about a candidate for NFL comissioner. How the political leanings of the next NFL comissioner affect football, I have no idea.

    You are so wrong! I started this thread first, realized turkeys like you would
    turn it into something else but thought it was GOOD news. So I created a
    post about it over there and linked to it.

    Unless you can read my thoughts don't infer my intentions ... :enranged:

    Hmmm, I hope you know I was joking. Though that was actually a question I once read in Parade magazine (the supplemental piece in the Sunday paper.)

    You think it is GOOD news that Jeb Bush would be the Commissioner of the NFL?

    Why do you think it is GOOD news?

    I don't think it's good or bad. Other than getting the CBA done, it's pretty much a non job. Anyone could do it rather well.

    You think Jeb Bush will be a better NFL commisioner than Tagliabue?

    Why do you think so?

    Mmm ... I think that this thread shows why having Jeb Bush as Commissioner would be a very bad idea.

    A Commissioner who is strongly identified politically would inevitably be divisive. I'm surprised that Rooney would have approached him.

    Do you think that Rooney asked him to keep it confidential, by the way?

    Good in the sense of "worthy of discussion". Should have said worthy instead
    of good.

    In the last paragraph of that article it says Tagliabue is suppose to exit on
    July 31st but is willing to stay longer. I suspect if Jeb was really interested
    Tags would stay until his job is finished.

    I think a youthful commissoner would be a good thing ... he can better
    relate to the players and having been in the position of authority can also
    relate to the owners.
