We have grown ALOT when it comes to players. TEAMS WILL PICK OR PLAY the best available. However that hasn't completely transferred to coaching. Affirmative action is only needed if people aren't getting a fair shot! Such as positions of authority
How can anyone justify Norv Turner getting THREE head coaching jobs and Lovie Smith can't?
I don't have a problem with the Rooney rule. I didn't say that I did. My problem is you EXPECT black coaches to be hired because of the Rooney rule. If the owner of the team doesn't want to hire a coach, then that's his choice. He followed the rule, which mandates that you just have to hire a minority.
Plus, what's wrong with 'good old boy networking' -- that's the best way to find a job anywhere. You network with people and that generally comes back to help you out later.
I think it's fairly simple. If a black, or any other minority, coach wowed the owner and general manager enough then they would hire them.
Sorry to upset you. I will tell those steeler fans that you think they are wrong. I'm sure they will care. lol.
Apparently, there are no Caucasians able to play corner in the NFL, or are there?
So teams should be forced to interview someone based on their skin color? Even when they see the evidence of their coaching on the field, and on film?
Thatís like saying you have to bring in a certain amount of Caucasian players on your roster for tryouts, even though thereís film on them that you could base a decision on.
