The End of an Era

Sources are saying that NFL commisioner Paul Tagliabue is considering ending one of the most successful runs as Commisioner of any sport.

The sources said Tagliabue is expected to exercise a clause in his contract with league owners in which he becomes a "senior executive" consultant with a significant compensation package.

I have to say this is a bit sad.  I don't normally worry myself with the higer ups outside of the Bears, but I have always liked Tags and would rather not see him go.

...the leading candidate to replace him is Roger Goodell, the league's executive vice president and chief operating officer. Goodell has worked side by side with Tagliabue on numerous issues, ranging from franchise stability, new stadium construction, TV contract negotiations and the most recent collective bargaining agreement, in which he was an active participant.
