    The article being partisan was obvious, the partisan opinion he was using it to support was right in his post.

    You're the one ignoring facts, so I guess the shoe fits.

    Which playing field? There's the coaching field and then there's the ones you coach field. While you're leveling one you're creating an advantage to that team and hurting a team that maybe doesn't need a coach.

    Might as well, I suppose, though this new Coordinator business might also dove-tail with the link that XLIX posted in the previous page...It also sounds like the league is going to be more demanding - Much more demanding - that all teams comply with this update than they might've done in the past, when in some cases the Rule seems to have been ignored completely...

    I am speaking only of facts. You are the one who faces a fact you don’t like, and can not refute so you attack the messenger. Low class, low intellect thing to do. If the shoe fits.

    Practically speaking most of them do. Why should a good coach have to leave?

    But if you believe in fairness, you shouldn't like a proposal that would have teams moved down a spot in the draft simply because someone else hired a coach and/or GM of the right skin color. Sure, we're only talking about one spot in the 3rd round, but again, I don't see the fairness in that.

    I have no issue with the modified Rooney rule that was passed, but I can see a possible scenario where it would be overkill.

    Obviously this example isn't likely, but let's say Andy Reid has some medical issues before the season begins and decides to step down. The Chiefs name Eric Bieniemy interim HC, who then leads KC to a 19-0 season, shattering records along the way. They now won't be able to name his as the new permanent HC until they interview one more minority candidate. Again, this isn't likely, but it would just be ridiculous they can't instantly offer him the job.

    I love all the people worried about "fairness" ... in the NFL.

    There's like 5 combined black coaches and GMs in a league where blacks make up 70% of the players.

    That's a lot more egregious than moving up a spot or two in the 3rd round.

    I just made an observation based on facts
    But I feel chipper everyday. Not every second of everyday but in general I try live a grateful life.

    Hope you have a fine evening

    Let’s get off this subject because it’s no longer an issue

    Next question: what do you think of affirmative action and racial quotas?
