Exclamation 49ers intrested in sec of state condoleeza rice

that what the NFL network is reporting.check the last few lines about andre carter.


49ers interested in Condoleezza Rice
Posted: October 26th, 2008 | Adam Schefter
Whether the union actually occurs is questionable. But the San Francisco 49ers want to talk to Condoleezza Rice about a high-level position within the organization, and the United States Secretary of State is interested in listening.
Rice could be a perfect candidate to become the 49ers president, helping the team try to procure the new stadium they desperately need.
One high-ranking 49ers official said last week, If shes interested in talking to us, Im interested in talking to her. Rice has told friends as recently as last week she would love to become president of an NFL team.
Even better, she is planning to return in January to Stanford, where she served as provost from 1993 to 1999. The two sides were trying to connect over the weekend, and both sides think the issue is worth exploring.
Rice is an enormous football fan who once aspired to be commissioner, before Roger Goodell succeeded Paul Tagliabue. She followed the Cleveland Browns while growing up in Alabama, and then later moved to Denver, where she became a Broncos fan. Rice even dated former Broncos wide receiver Rick Upchurch and hosted the baby shower for the wife of former Broncos nose tackle Rubin Carter when she was pregnant with baby Andre, who since has gone on to become a standout defensive end for the Washington Redskins

What does this have to do with winning? 49ers are one of the worst run teams in the league now. Eddie D. got run off and now they're a joke.

That post seemed like negativity for the sake of negativity.

If the 49ers need someone from the Bush admin. to turn things around they're really in trouble.

Re: 49ers intrested in sec of state condoleeza rice

This seems like a terrible idea. Forget whether she is qualified from either a football of business standpoint. I would think she is pretty persona non grata in Cali circles. How does having someone who is at the very least part of an unpopular administration help them get a stadium? What are they gonna threaten them? "Give us a stadium or Condi will sick the NSA on your ass!!!"

I don't think she was even interviewed for the job. She said it would be her dream job, but was the NFL interested??

Sorry but I just don't get SF. I heard they fired Nolan with the son of John York who is just out of college. Now they want to hire a someone w/ no NFL experience to be president?

I highly doubt the title of president would give her power to make personnel decisions. I'm sure she'd be given the power to find someone and hire them to make personnel decisions.

I'm sure she's very capable to be the president of an NFL team, regardless of what you think of her politics. She'll know where her strengths and weaknesses are; you can take it to the bank that you wouldn't see her in the 49ers war room on draft day.

I know it is no secret she is a huge football fan and has always said her dream job was to be commissioner.

What would her purpose be? To put the 49ers in debt then bail out the Cowgirls because of incompetent management?

That might true , but I doubt she could do more harm than Jamie < 911 > Gorelick or Franklin Raines did at Fannie Mae , both were in the Clinton admin.
