    Rooney Rule

    The Browns hired Mangini without interviewing a black candidate. Same with the Broncos. And the Jets are interviewing a bunch of prospective HCs and as far as I know, none are black.

    So what's the deal with the Rooney Rule and how its enforced and/or interpreted?

    They will probably get hit with a fine like the Lions did.

    What about the Colts? They aren't interviewing.

    I'm surprised no one wants to talk to John Mitchell.

    Jim Caldwell had it in his contract that if Dungy retires he's the man. That is an automatic exemption from the Rooney Rule.

    Why didn't they put that in some black coaches contract?

    Re: Rooney Rule

    On a side note, I do wish everybody would stop getting all twisted up over the rooney rule. It addressed what the NFL saw as a PR problem. Not sure what percentage of NFL viewers/attending fans are minorities, but it's hard to deny that owners had a solid history of hiring only white guys for HC positions (yes there were a few exceptions - but not many). It was a business decision for the league, end of story.

    But all the b*tching about it only feeds the perception that somebody like Tomlin isn't qualified or deserving.
