Completed a new module in our leadership playbook yesterday.

The ongoing, developing lessons of Brett Favre and Jay Leno.

What's a manager to do when one of your stars "retires" and then changes their mind?

Jay Leno, another example. They've already promised the job to Conan, announced the last Friday of Leno and the first Monday of Conan.

What's NBCU to do now?

Mike Ditka said it best "There's no loyalty in sports." Your thoughts?

LATER: Ron Fell, ever the clever and very creative guy, offers a killer suggestion for how NBCU can retain Leno and in the process reinvent late prime. Check out Ron's concept by clicking on comments below. Bravos, Ron!
