Stupid rule.
Do I really give a sh** what color my coach's skin is?
If you can make my Saints win, you can be polka-dotted for all I
care.

When will we ever get over this race garbage? \

that said, for me, I want Parcells... any other interview is pure tokenism.
If Parcells was purple, he'd still be my pick.

If racism isn't at the forefront of popular issues then people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would run out of money.

Two observations:

1. show me what part of the Rooney Rule says anything about interim head coaches being hired while the actual head coach is serving a suspension and there is every indication he's coming back after the suspension is over.

2. the "rules" are being enacted by Goddell as we go along, and interpreted by Goddell in a very non-uniform manner.

Violating the rule and paying the fine is how "part" of the rule works

This is an unprecedented moment so unprecedented actions are required. Searching for a new coach yes the Rooney Rule should apply but a coach serving a suspension no, you holding it down until the suspension is no more. I too want Parcells. Sean is the offspring of the Tuna so consistency is needed not a new hire thatís interim. Sometimes common sense needs to prevail

If Chewbacca could lead the Saints to the Superbowl, then I'd be all for it.

Yes the Saints need to be as squeaky clean as possible until all this "bounty" hysteria bull chip dies down, all Loomis needs to do is give Ellard a token interview and badda bing badda boom Saints hire Parcells and the Saints once again tell Roger to stick it

How can you play by the rules when the person enforcing the rules does not understand the rules himself or know from one minute to the next how he wants to enforce them.
