            It's only a formality though, right?


            Thanks for your hard work, Paul... and for getting the CBA done...

              doesn't bother me as long as the new comish doesn't ruin the NFL like David Stern killed the NBA.

                ???
                Do you remember the NBA before Stern?

                No TV contract except for the finals, and even THAT was on tape delay.

                A high percentage of drug use, with no drug policy in place.

                No league marketing. Each team was left on its own to do that, and they generally sucked at it. He promoted the idea of marketing players, not teams.

                Although the product declined in the mid to late 90's, I see that scoring is up a tad and the ratings are on the upswing again.

                Without Stern, the league would be probably only about 12 major market teams with a much lower national profil.


                I thinkhe is WAY better than any of the idiots running the NHL or MLB in that same timespan.

                Everybody's gotta elevate from the norm...

                  Yeah the deal for me to take over will be a formality. However their people can contact my secretary when the time is right and I'll get back to them. I'm not sure I want a step down in pay.

                    Paul helped the NFL transform into the great sport that it is today, and he will be sorely missed...here is to hoping the next commish can fill his shoes.

                          If he does retire, getting the CBA done is a great way to go out, good job Paul
