Some hopefully relevant quotes:
- "bypassing his expected successor and underboss" p. 82 "Underboss: Sammy the Bull Gravano's Story of Life in the Mafia"; This verifies that underboss'es are considered to be the successors of their bosses.
- "As consigliere and then underboss, I wasn't supposed to be doing these hits or getting into the details of them." p. 250 (same book) (a direct quote in the book).
- ""As underboss, I was to go on the lam and run the family for him" p. 265

While someone with more expert knowledge of published works on the mafia may be able to find more, I have not been able to find a source independant of Sammy Gravano which mentions the term "underboss", so I'm doubtful if this passes the primary notability criteria, that of multiiple indendpent publishing in different sources.

Who put this after 'Underboss'? I assume its supposed to say consigliere? And if it is supposed to, why would someone infer they're the same thing? A consigliere is an advisor to the boss, usually not even a member of cosa nostra in the sense that Underbosses etc. are. Jonomacdrones 19:16, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
Is there always just one underboss??? Stev-boy 15:14, 16 August 2007 (UTC)Stev-boy
