TAGLIABUE WARNS VIKINGS NOT TO PUSH ROGER OVER AND OUT
Published March 23, 1998
NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue ruled that Vikings President Roger Headrick "cannot be fired ... while the sale of the team to author Tom Clancy is pending and under the review process," according to Don Banks of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. But some of the Vikings' board members "are intent on challenging Tagliabue's jurisdiction in the matter, claiming the board is within its right as a corporation" to name its CEO. Vikings co-Owner Wheelock Whitney, on Headrick: "He's the boss, until further notice. But his presence continues to remain a concern to us." Banks wrote that the board is looking to replace Headrick "because it would prevent him from remaining in power should the sale to Clancy "collapse" (STAR TRIBUNE, 3/21).
