If you are a non-minority you do not have to be interviewed. If a owner interviews only minority canidates, non-minority canidates will be discriminated against.

Other then that a perfectly good rule.

And given the history of the NFL, do you really think this is going to happen?

The Rooney Rule is not crap. What's the harm for non-minorities, if a minority gets an interview?

If this started happening they would include non-minorities to the rule. This is just crap.

Re: Report: Shanahan in Talks with Redskins

Personally, I think one human of every ethnic group/sexual orientation/gender should be interviewed for every job available. Further, the presidency ought to be changed from a one person job to a cooperative hegemony, again with one of every ethnic group/sexual orientation/gender represented. Further, the UN should have multiple representatives from every nation one for every ethnic group/sexual orientation/gender.

Granted nothing would get accomplished, but hey BONUS!

Bro well said, but don't waste your time with this ignorant shit..... I am Black and I would be joyed to death to have Shanahan as our Coach, But to stomp on something that gives people oppourtunity.... is stupid and not sure Why no Mod or Matty has stepped in and put a muzzle on these idiots?

I'll say it again - what's the harm of ONE minority being interviewed?

none I was being sarcastic towards the whole debate. It's a simple rule, it's not the end of the world, it's also not salvation in a handbasket. It's just a rule.

No one has to tell me much about the rule or the purpose of it's intent. I was afforded a job in county government as a result of affirmative action. Mike Tomlin, Lovie Smith, Tony Dungy, Marvin Lewis were not hired as a rusult of the Rooney Rule, they were hired because they were well qualified for the position. None of these men had to be hired, regardless of the rule they still could have been passed over.
Exactly.

Well that will be the report for at least the next 2 weeks. There is no way that we tear apart the staff before the two NFC East games.
