    If you answer no in response to that that last required question, does that mean you'll be eliminated from consideration?

    Perhaps. But answering yes to it, then having them call you at your house in Nevada may be a bit worse.

    How did you know I lived in Nevada?!?

    Is there a way to say that an applicant would be willing to move to Tampa if given the job opportunity? I currently live in Chicago but would travel for the right job.

    Can't believe the Bucs posted this before the one for head coach.

    Just hit yes on the housing question.

    That is part of the online PR form, and I am sure it is the 1,765th thing they are looking at when making this hire.

    Now if you were or are an NFL beat writer with web page experience and some publishing background, then I am sure they will be interested.

    Honestly, I cannot believe a position this sweet would not have 8-10 strong candidates applying in the Florida area.

    So you'd have housing, right? Click yes.

    Yeah, lying on the application is always a sound decision. Stop in Orlando on your way down and ask George O'Leary.

    Lying about what? Having housing in Tampa?

    I have not looked at it, but if it's like most online applications, every hire in the organization uses the form. So there will be some crap on there that the PR department could give two shits about, but the sales department, for example, would care about.

    Yes, it would be a lie to check "Yes" if you do not, in fact, have housing in Tampa. And that would not be advisable regardless of which department would care about it.

    what's the estimated salary for this, 65-75k?
