Murphy named to NFL Competition Committee. The new members of the NFL competition committee were named today, and one of them was Green Bay Packers team President Mark Murphy. He's the first member to represent the Packers since Mike Holmgren did so in the 1990s.

The competition committee is influential because it gets to decide things like where the umpire should stand, and where the ball should be kicked off from and when a play can be challenged. It also deserves to be mocked by the Onion from time-to-time for putting the "no fun" in the No Fun League.

This is probably a nice perk for Murphy, who had to run point for the league during the worst of the NFL lockout. He'll be joining it this year along with Cardinals head coach Ken Weisenhunt, and former co-chair Jeff Fisher. Fisher had to settle for an advisory role last year with the committee while he was out of football.
