Re: Question for the Forum:

I still don't think the "Rooney Rule" should have applied to us if we had gone outside the organization looking for an interim HC. The only candiate out there that made any sense to me was Parcells b/c of the history between him and Sean. Actually interviewing minority candiates at that point would have only been a sham and a waste of their time.

Re: Question for the Forum:

The thing that makes the Rooney rule so silly -- and that no one ever talks about -- is that, hypothetically, back when people were flapping their gums about the Saints "possibly violating the Rooney rule, if they hired Parcells"....it was March...the Saints could have hired Parcells in March/April to be BALL CATCHER for the team, waterboy, line painter on the field, PR spokesperson, extra mascot, whatever. Dumbest job title you can think of. And hypothetically they could have decided whether he would coach or not, in August....as long as he was in the organization, they could have PROMOTED HIM FROM WITHIN to head coach and there's nothing the league could have done about it. The same way that no one questions the Rooney rule when Vitt or Kromer take over the reigns.

Then everyone would have called the Saints racist, bounty hunter, cheaters for transparently flaunting the rules of the league again. I don't mind being the black sheep of the league, but you have to draw a line somewhere.

Re: Question for the Forum:

I never like Romeo. Doesn't look the part.

Dennis Thurman might get a look sooner or later

Re: Question for the Forum:

I think the Rooney Rule makes as much sense as having a Jeremy Lin rule to ensure enough Asians are in the NBA.

Folks with credentials should be hired on the basis of what they bring to the table, and how they will HELP the company/entity achieve their objectives (and profitability).

There... I said it! >
