He also alleges racism in NFL hiring practices and that the minority interviews are a total joke, with receipts to show it


Dude might be the coaching version of Kaepernick now?

It's rumored that Flores is difficult. Guess it's true

Dude is going full scorched earth. I believe this part about Elway showing up to a token interview an hour late and hung over as fuck

If they knew already who they planned to hire like that, but still had Flores still come in to make sure they meet their diversity quota that is a significant issue.

Is this surprising to you?

So A) NFL probably cuts a huge check to shut him up B) He probably cost himself a future NFL HC job C) I can see how he'd be pissed, interviewing for a job you already know was given to someone and you're just the token guy to fill the Rooney rule, yeah fuck that I'd be pissed

That's life. Full of jobs promised to someone else. He wasn't not going to get another chance.

This is a bizarre move.

I kinda feel like you only do this type of thing if you think your career is already over. Because it probably is now

I'm a lifelong Bengals fan so I understand when an organization is run poorly. But, what the fuck is wrong with Miami? If you hear a ridiculous story involves an NFL team and you have to guess which team, Miami has to be in your top 3 picks, no?

What if NY heard that Miami was going to offer the job to Daboll(which I read was likely) and had to act quickly knowing that was very likely the guy they wanted?

That's where the whole interviewing minority candidates gets a little sticky if another team already did their token minority interviews and has a head start.

That is so not true. Flores was one of the oddest firing in the last decade of football. He had a 500 record with a sub 500 roster.

The texts prove nothing since Belichick doesn't work for the Giants. But it does show that others in the NFL thought Daboll had it locked up already.

I do feel for these black coaches who are jerked around with these token interviews. As someone who hires people, sometimes you do have to conduct a certain number of interviews, including with minority candidates, just to check the boxes, even if you know who you really want. So the league created this as much as any team frankly.

Na, it has always been clear, but not proven. That text exchange if real removes the lack of proof part.

I honestly don't think there is some major systemic racism anymore to a major degree within sports. Not to say there isn't some though

From a production standpoint I agree. It was odd.

But behind the scenes we don't see.
