    MEet your new Commissioner

    NFL owners elect Goodell as new commissioner
    ESPN.com news services

    NORTHBROOK, Ill. -- Roger Goodell was chosen as the NFL's next commissioner Tuesday, succeeding the man who groomed him for the job, Paul Tagliabue.

    The 47-year-old Goodell worked his way from a public relations intern to perhaps the most powerful job in sports. He was elected on the fifth ballot among the league's 32 owners.

    ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports he was voted in unanimously on the fifth ballot. At that point, the last remaining contender was Gregg Levy, who served as the league's outside counsel.

    I heard that he was the best man for the job a while back and a lot of people were wondering why they even bothered to look at other candidates.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    im glad he got the job, having served under both Paul & Rosell, i think he'll do really well, it'll be next to impossible to replace him though

    NFL should make changes

    A few excerpts I found interesting:

    ...The new gig should be a piece of cake for Goodell, who served as Tags' right-hand man for 17 years. The 47-year-old former intern will inherit America's most prosperous sports enterprise, including a brand-spanking new television deal worth about $3.75 billion annually
    , when he officially takes over Sept. 1.....
