    From Rappaport:

    ".@NFL needs to fill Ray Anderson’s VP of Football Opps job. It’s early. But 1 name I hear who may be in the mix: #Dolphins exec Dawn Aponte"

    "Plenty of good candidates for Ray Anderson’s job. But If it ended up being Dawn Aponte, she’d be the highest ranking (female?) non-owner in NFL"

    Perhaps this was the reason for the infamous hug and despondent Philbin from earlier this week.

    Throws a wrench into the whole GM thing. Atleast perhaps.

    Can't say I'd be unhappy if she went back to the League Office.

    Would be surprised if Ross let's her leave. Too valuable IMO.

    WTF is with the hate for this woman?

    And what percentage of the haters have it based in sexism?

    "THERES NO WAY SOME WOMAN CAN KNOW MORE ABOUT FOOTBALL THAN ME, MANLY MAN."

    Good riddance!

    Get rid of everyone with a connection to Bill Parcells. Bring back Bryan Wiedmeier to take her place, and get Matt Thomas back as well.

    President and CEO -- Bryan Wiedmeier
    Executive VP and GM -- Tom Heckert Jr
    Executive VP and Director of Football Administration -- Matt Thomas

    Stephen Ross, make it happen!!

    Because she comes across, from what I've seen and heard, as a total b****. I don't see where sexism comes into play at all, if a man was doing her job and acted like that, the male version of that term would be to call him a total a**h***

    As to your comment about her football knowledge, who knows how knowledgeable she is and if it even matters. She's on the business side of it, contracts and I would imagine salary cap, etc. not aspects directly tied to the game on the field.

    And to be clear about it, my opinion is based on what I've read about her and particularly on Hard Knocks. I found her to be distasteful, rude and obnoxious, and if I were a free agent thinking about coming to Miami or staying in Miami, she'd be a small net negative in the decision making process, not a net positive. Tough negotiator, I'll give her credit for that, but the overriding thought for me was, what a b****.

    I believe she worked in the league office previously (Labor Dept. IIRC) before her stints with the Browns and Dolphins.

    I actually have been impressed that nobody has yet to insinuate she is sleeping with anyone at the league office. We are making progress.

    Not really a fan. I think she's great with the numbers, but she seems cut from the Parcellian model of treating people.

    I think this mostly comes down to the fact that it looks like Ireland is going to be coming back. It's been reported that she's been feuding with Ireland all year long and it seems like she made a power play and failed.

    I think you're looking into it too much. If she leaves it's because she is getting what she feels is a promotion.

    The least number of words that could be used to perfectly describe what's going on, imo. Well said.

    I didn't like her attitude towards Tannehill on hard knocks.
