    CHICAGO - NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue convened an emergency summit Sunday morning with Vikings owner Zygi Wilf, pledging his assistance following one of the darkest weeks in franchise history. At Tagliabue's urging, Wilf created a new director of security position and immediately filled it by hiring Dag Sohlberg, a retired FBI agent who has worked five years as a part-time employee of NFL Security. The Vikings have wrapped security issues into their team operations department for years, but Wilf decided to split those duties following allegations last week that players participated in a sex party Oct. 6 on Lake Minnetonka.

    Statement regarding the Super Bowl halftime show Statement by NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue regarding the Super Bowl halftime show: "We were extremely disappointed by the MTV-produced halftime show.

We will change our policy, our people and our processes for managing the halftime entertainment in the future in order to deal far more effectively with the quality of this aspect of the Super Bowl."

Millen was unable to adhere to the NFL's new hiring procedures, as implemented last December, after becoming infatuated with Steve Mariucci following another dismal season. This was an open secret at the time. As the...
