EXAMINING THE NFL'S VETTING PROCESS: THE MMQB's Andrew Brandt noted several team owners have been in the news for legal issues this summer and wrote, "Whether it is the Wilfs in Minnesota or Jimmy Haslam in Cleveland, these allegations do not reflect well on the league." Brandt: "I will say this: the vetting process by the NFL is comprehensive and broad, with many questions asked about finances and background issues." In these cases, it is unknown "if questions simply weren’t asked or if they were asked and the NFL was satisfied with the answers." Brandt: "Unfortunately for both franchises, this negative publicity will linger" (MMQB.SI.com, 8/7).
