He will start somewhere
There is a distinct possibility that his attitude could cost him a chance. He won’t start unless he replaces an injured player but I think many teams have him on the no thanks list. But that’s an impression which certainly could be wrong.

Here's a radical proposal, how about putting the 32 best people in charge of franchises even in the (admittedly highly unlikely) circumstance that exactly 0 or them -- or exactly 32 of them -- are black.

Already black head coaches are facing some backlash that they are pity hires or affirmative action hires, even when they're very highly qualified. can we maybe not make that worse for them in a misguided effort to legislate opportunity by forcing outcomes?

Reading @Ring 6's take on how white coaches are hired only because they're better than black coaches reminded me of this classic Andy post:

When did I say white coaches are hired because they are better than black coaches?

I said competition creates the incentive to hire the best man for the job.
Given that in recent years the percentage of black coaches hired is higher than the percentage of black population, you could conclude I feel black coaches are better than white coaches.
But that conflicts with your identity politics view of life.

What would be great is if Andy answered the above Ring6 post and disagreed. You can do it.

It starts at childhood when african american children get in trouble more for doing the same things as white kids, they don't get called on in class, their role models are different, they have different dreams...the police hassle them for walking down the street, they get followed by security in stores, they cannot get jobs because they aren't named Steve or Jen even though they have exactly the same resumes, they cannot rent an apartment because that landlord doesn't rent to african americans, they can't get mortgages for "reasons."

It goes on and on and on and on...But, you keep on living in that world where everything is generally the same...."faulk them, you got yours"
Yep if you say so. The majority of black kids in this country attends schools with predominately black students. Ah nevermind...

Because, the truth is funny.

Sorry, white nationalist, proportionate representation would be a nightmare for you and your grievance brat buddies.

And it's off to ignore with your disrespectful ass. you have no purpose.

We are THIS close.

I think another few hundred posts and we'll come to a consensus, and Joker will write a summary of our recommendations and send it to NFL HQ.

There’s that annoying little thing called the constitution and the fact that we are a republic and the UNITED STATES of America getting in the way of your beliefs.

Thank you.

He and his own can pack up and move. Canada and Mexico have roads.
