Default Rooney Rule, who they going to bring in?

Well if we interview Studesville does that take care of the Rooney rule? Still feel bad that somebody comes in just to get the "well we'll give you a call", then turns their back and says ok call Goodell and tell him we've complied

I'd like them to bring in Fewell and Rivera for an interview, regardless of the Rooney rule...

I sometimes can't believe the Rooney rule actually exists.

PC gone mad, if somebody doesn't want to hire a person because they're black then bringing someone in for a token interview isn't going make the least bit of difference or change anybody's mind.

Also they could interview ron rivera and fulfill that rule. I think Broncos could keep studesville. I really think they want to go cheap on the coach.

My point was, just because they're required to inteview a minority candidate, why does that automatically indicate the interview can't be serious? There are plenty of good black coaches, so I see no reason to simply do an interview with no thought for hiring someone other than to fulfill this rule's requirements. We've got black coaches winning Superbowls, so if a team is merely going through the motions to satisfy Goodell's wishes, I think that's a foolish approach.

Going cheap on the coach...that's like putting a used tire on an $80,000 car...it make zero sense. The coach is highly strategic even if some people don't believe so, and it makes no sense to try to save there of all places.

Asking the same question now of you...why does it have to be a token interview? I don't think the rule is there to overcome Klan-like behavior from some closet racist NFL owner. I think it's there for PR impact...at the same time it's obvious the NFL has started opening doors to coaching positions to black candidates, so if the Rooney Rule encourages that...mayhbe it's useful on some level.

Its not always a token interview but has potential to be.

Say Pat Bowlen has a short list of HC candidates and just by chance none of them are a minority. He has to then call a minority candidate for an interview when he knows going in to the meeting he isn't going to hire the guy. It's neither good for the team nor the person.

I'd like to see this rule taken away mostly due to the fact that racism just can't exist in the NFL. If there is a candidate who an owner feels gives his team the best chance to win he will undoubtedly hire him. Winning in this league trumps most peoples feelings.

I agree. Anytime you are forced to interview someone for reasons other than their qualifications, and especially for things like race, religion, sex, etc., I don't think it really fixes anything.

It exists because of the high number of black players who complained that most of the management (and all of the ownership) in the NFL was white. They said they wanted change, so the NFL pretended to do something and made up the rule.

Fair being fair, I think the NFL should also implement the Hillis rule. Basically, every team in the NFL has to try out at least 1 white running back before giving the starting job to a black guy. And every game a white guy has to run the ball at least 3 times.

This would make football fun again.

Studesville will fulfill the letter and the spirit of the Rooney Rule, because he's being seriously considered. I'd like for them to bring in Ron Rivera and a few others (Mornhinweg, though I think he goes to the Browns now, and Mularkey) before they make a decision.

I like Studesville. I would certainly be interested to hear what his plan is regarding the current/new assistants, installing/keeping certain aspects of the system, etc.. I heard him yesterday saying he had a lot of preperation to do for the interview, and it sounds like he at least believes he is getting a fair shot.

The Broncos could definitely do a lot worse, and at the very least I hope he stays with the team.

The Rooney Rule is a racist pile of ****. Forcing a magnifying glass on skin color is exactly what's wrong with this world. Teams should and do hire who's best for the job.
