    Default Constitutional amendment - article 2

    Article 2 of the FOBL constitution covers the governance of the league. It is proposed that the following changes (noted below in bold) be made:

    ----------------------
    II. GOVERNANCE
    B. Commissioner
    2. Election/Removal
    b. The Commissioner may retire or be removed by the following procedure.
    iii. At least 22 votes of the Active Ownership are required to remove the Commissioner. If the Commissioner is a team owner, he is allowed to vote. Abstentions and blank votes will be used to achieve a quorum if necessary; however, for all other purposes they shall be treated as votes against removal of the Commissioner.
    iv. If more than 16 and less than 22 of the Active Ownership cast votes in favor of removal, then the matter will go before the Board of Governors for a new vote. The Commissioner will be removed if all members of the Board of Governors vote for removal in the new vote, excluding the Commissioner, who is not allowed to vote.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    D. League Presidents
    3. A League President is free to retire; however, he may be removed by the vote of 22 owners.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    These proposals simply adjust the the number of votes needed, to reflect our decrease from 36 to 32 teams. This is simply a housekeeping matter.

    If approved, this amendment will go into effect immediately.

    The whole world is a circus if you look at it the right way. Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand, every time you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic!" Every time such a thing happens, you are part of the Circus of Dr. Lao.
