    Tagliabue goes out swinging

    Tagliabue, who leaves after 16 seasons as commissioner, showed he can still throw a mean elbow Monday in his last interview before giving way to new Commissioner Roger Goodell at 6 a.m. ET on Sept. 1. (The switch will take place then instead of midnight, the normal transfer time, because there will be exhibition games being played on the West Coast and, as Tagliabue put it, "we don't want to change horses at midstream." )

    The 65-year old executive blasted NFL Network announcer Bryant Gumbel for "inexcusable" remarks on HBO's Real Sports program deriding NFL Players Association executive director Gene Upshaw as Tagliabue's leashed pet and league owners as greedy, rapacious billionaires...
