He's in a secured room with mostly media (and owners..I presume). How much do you want to bet they don't ask him WHY he's keeping our 2nd rounder when he said it was "conditional upon our organization's compliance?"
I don't know how it feels, but he brought it upon himself. What I don't understand is how he CONTINUES to punish us with nothing in his corner. And why Benson isn't raising fifty tons of h#*@ about him STEALING our 2nd rounder, both of them.
The Rooney Rule is a great rule, but how are you going to tell an owner who he can and cannot hire? It's his money invested in the team and, hopefully, he will pick the right man for the job and not base his decision on skin color.
I honestly would LOVE to see more minorities as Head Coaches, FWIW, but I just don't like how some people react to the situation.
MAN I wish DB would slip in and say "He excuse me commish, let's skip the bs...we did what you told us to do (went along with our punishment with absolutely NO proof) and you said you'd give our 2nd round pick back. What's up with you changing your mind and what did our "organization" violate in the punishment that warrants you to continue into 2013 and destroy our franchise?"
DB has more balls than the mayor, HC, and owner put together. At least he's man enough to be out front with it and call bs what it is. The truth should always prevail over "being professional" in my opinion. He obviously has a lot to lose by being so out front with his statements, but that's what tells me he loves this city so much. He puts it ALL on the line for us.
