Soooooo......On the Flores situation....


I believe that the Giants made sure to dot their "I's" and cross their "T's". I think Schoen had a prior relationship with Daboll that made it hard for any candidate/interviewee to overcome. Does that equal racial discrimination?

I think the NFL does have a problem for minority coaches. How to fix it, I don't know. I think that adjusting the "interview process" (Rooney Rule) was a nice attempt but isn't working for minority candidates.

I guess insentivizing teams to hire minorities is the best I've heard, although then are they being hired for the wrong reason? If Flores over Daboll gets the Giants an extra second round pick, does that work for the masses?

If I connect the dots.....

Mara was big on Flores, but decided to hand the reins to Schoen. Schoen hires Daboll. Giants are now getting sued. Seems like if Mara had stuck with the status quo (overruling the GM/Coach), they might not be in this situation.
