***ALL-PHILLY TEAM*** Info Session Part 6

Now, it's time to go over the executives or the people who run the show and make all the behind the scene moves for these franchises. 

Please take note, due to the urgency to get these done, in this Info Session, whatever executive has been mentioned before in the coaches part will not get  a picture. I assume you know who they are.
