It seems some of these things may have merit.  The Hoodie made a big mistake. 😂😂

Don't lay this at the feet of the hoodie - the ones that made the mistake are the Mara's and the Tisch's. I would bet that whichever one is close to Belichick let him know they were hiring their coach last Monday. Then they interviewed all of the Minority candidates on Weds-Fri. So their mind was made up to the point that this got to not only Belichick, it got to Boomer Esiason, a couple of writers up in Buffalo, and then finally it got to Flores because Belichick picked the wrong Bill in his phone to congratulate.

Want my opinion? Belichick did it on purpose because he genuinely likes Flores. And I would bet that if Flores wanted the opportunity, there would be a position on the Pats staff for him.

This was coming eventually. The Rooney Rule, for the "good" of it's intent, isn't going to influence the owners and GMs as to who they tab as the guy they want as their next/new coach.

I'm not sure how you fix that until black billionaires start owning NFL teams, and that isn't happening anytime soon I would guess.
But be prepared for an NHL-level publicity blitz on the Diversity and Non-Discriminatory NFL coming to a TV near you, and soon (and for those not in Canada, the sports networks here go exceptionally over-the-top in promoting how inclusive and non discriminatory they are trying to be, over and above actual coverage of the games. Its awful.)

Bill Belichick can win 6 Super Bowls but can’t figure out who he’s texting even after 15 minutes.

He's not very tech savvy.  I mean he doesn't even use SnapFace.

The Rooney Rule was always about keep up appearances/putting up a front and was never going to result in a minority candidate hiring that would not have occurred without the rule.

As mentioned in an earlier post, the offer of cash for every loss may be the bigger issue; could this be construed as an offer of a bribe to lose games? Will this lead to a criminal investigation and charges being filed?

So, basically Stephen Ross told Flores to lose on purpose to the the top overall draft pick, but Flores said fuck you.

Tanking is so stupid, especially these players basically get their money off stats. They may or may not care about winning, but if you keep them from getting their money-making stats, they'll probably say fuck you, too.

Those '72 Fins will stoop to any sub-level to keep their shiny record to themselves.   Maybe soon instead of Deflate-Gate, they will uncover the mysteries of the airbrushed ball... and who was driving the Brady Bunch wagon.

I was listening to some sports talk last night and there are several issues here.

-Making payments outside of the contract. Almost like blackmail/bribe.

-Violating the integrity of the game by basically fixing games.

I wonder if the NFL has the same ability to poach a franchise from an owner like the NBA did with Donald Sterling.

You have to think Flores has some sort of incontrovertible proof to make the accusations he has against the Miami owner. I mean, it's too much of a bombshell to think he can win a "he said-she said" court case, no?

If proven, (that’s a big ‘if’) that gets the owner thrown out of the league, wouldn’t it?

And the other conspiracy - why were the Brady boys getting so high that they thought they needed to mow their astroturf lawn?
