Curacao, N.A. (PRWEB) March 25, 2006
OasisCasino.com, online sportsbook, casino & racebook (http://www.OasisCasino.com) has released odds predicting that the NFL’s next commissioner will come from the NFL league offices.
NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue is retiring after more than 16 years on the job. With a legacy that includes record-setting television deals, an absence of labor strife, unprecedented expansion and league parity, replacing Tagliabue will prove to be a difficult job for the NFL’s search committee. Tagliabue’s announcement and the NFL’s pending search for a new commissioner has prompted OasisCasino.com bookmakers to release odds predicting that Roger Goodell, the NFL's chief operating officer, is a slight favorite over Atlanta general manger Rich McKay to be named the next commissioner of the NFL. (“Who will replace Paul Tagliabue as the NFL’s next commissioner? Roger Goodell: -150; Rich McKay: +100. Betting lines can be viewed at http://www.oasiscasino.com/eng/sportsbook.asp)
“Paul Tagliabue has made the NFL the world’s premier professional sports league. Without the NFL, the entire gaming industry would be a fraction of its current size; therefore, it is no surprise that the betting public has a vested interest in who will become the next commissioner of the NFL,” said Randolph Shea, OasisCasino.com Director of Corporate Communication. “While qualified individuals, including Roger Goodell, Rich McKay, Dick Cass and even Condoleezza Rice are being mentioned for the NFL’s top job, we here at OasisCasino.com are pretty confident the job is not going to go to Drew Rosenhaus. The most despised agent in professional sports is currently listed as a 100:1 long shot.”
Representatives for Paul Tagliabue and the NFL could not be reached for comment.
