with the Jets as the favorite to become the team’s next General Manager.That’s the word
from Manish Mehta of the http://www.buccaneerslockerroom.com/authentic-brent-grimes-jersey , who reports that the only things that could derail Douglas’s hiring would be an
unimpressive interview with acting Jets owner Christopher Johnson, or Douglas
wanting more money than Johnson is willing to pay.Douglas currently serves as
the Eagles’ vice president of player personnel. He is in his third year with the
Eagles, having previously worked for the Bears and Ravens.The Jets made the
surprising decision to fire General Manager Mike Maccagnan this month after
allowing him to run the draft and free agency. Douglas has emerged as the
favorite for the job, with other candidates including Seahawks co-director of
player personnel Scott Fitterer, Bears assistant director of player personnel
Champ Kelly, Vikings assistant G.M. George Paton and Saints director of pro
scouting Terry Fontenot. This is not an April Fool’s Day joke. This is not an
April Fool’s Day joke.We repeat: This is not an April Fool’s Day joke.The Tampa
Bay Buccaneers are seeking “millions of dollars” in compensation from BP
Exploration & Production for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.The
Buccaneers’ effort to recover these significant amounts came to light in a court
order filed Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. The court
order denies an effort by the Buccaneers to seal the courtroom for oral
arguments regarding an appeal of whatever amount the Bucs did or didn’t receive
from a lower court.In ruling against the team http://www.buccaneerslockerroom.com/authentic-mike-alstott-jersey , the appeals court made it clear that the team’s efforts to ensure secrecy go
well beyond the boundaries of the role of the inherently public court system.
The Buccaneers argued that, among other things, “private spite” on the part of
BP, the promotion of “public scandal,” and harm to the team’s “competitive
standing.”The Buccaneers also claim that they have an “expectation of secrecy”
in the process of having their claim approved and paid. The court rejected that
approach by pointing again to the public nature of the judicial system, and by
chiding the Buccaneers for trying so hard to conceal information from public
view.“The court will leave it to others to guess why the team is so concerned
about public disclosure of its claim when numerous other BP claimants in the
appeals inundating our court are not Chris Conte Jersey ,” Judge Gregg J. Costa writes in the five-page order. “Just three months into this year, at least ten Deepwater Horizon decisions
naming the claimants have issued. Among them is one from another of Tampa Bay’s
professional sports franchises, the NHL’s Lightning. . . . The court is unable
to discern any reason for keeping secret the oil-spill claim of a football team
when the claim of a hockey team (and of course those of numerous other
businesses) is a public matter.”Thus, the court concluded that the Buccaneers
“should not able to benefit from this public resource while treating it like a
private tribunal when there is no good reason to do so,” adding that “the public
will be able to access the courtroom it pays for.”Contacted for comment on the
situation, the Buccaneers provided this statement to PFT: “As per our usual team
policy Shaquil Barrett Jersey , we do not comment regarding ongoing litigation matters.”Although the Buccaneers apparently will be able to keep their financial
information secret, the outcome won’t be. At some point, the amount to be paid
by BP to the Buccaneers will be known, along with the reasoning for doing
so.
