No Guts

What do you think will happen with Brian Flores, the former coach of the Miami Dolphins, who filed a suit against the NFL for its racist hiring practices.

I will tell you what I think will happen.

I don’t think Brian Flores will coach in the NFL again.

He will be blackballed.

Very few people will stick up for him in a substantive way.

The players and future coaches who will benefit most from his lawsuit will flee for the hills.

I don’t care what happy talk comes out of their mouths; they will run away from him faster than Dennis Miller can quip a metaphor.

You can already see it now.

The ESPN broadcasters are bending over backwards to find fairness in the NFL.

Ultimately these broadcasters will applaud the NFL‘s efforts even though those efforts will fall short.

Brian Flores will be out.

I hope he wins, because the NFL is a racist league.

He deserves to win.

Unfortunately I fear he will be fighting this battle alone.

The NFL will move on, and the puppets of the NFL will say: the NFL has made great strides, but more needs to be done.

In fact, the NFL already has made a couple of moves by hiring Mike McDaniel, a biracial candidate, and Lovie Smith, who should’ve been hired five years ago.

It’s fair to say that Lovie Smith would still be wallowing in purgatory without Brian Flores and his lawsuit.

The NFL loves to respond quickly to make sure that the public knows that it’s not racist.

But it is. And many people will use these NFL overtures as an excuse not to protest the NFL too vociferously.

It’s a sad reality in this world that many people don’t have the guts to put their careers on the line in any meaningful way when it comes to doing the right thing.

After all, there’s often too much money at stake.

You know, the players can easily go on strike.

It’s a simple thing to do.

70% of the league’s players are black.

What’s the problem?

Isn’t this the time to step up?

It seems logical to me.

Why not strike while the iron is hot?

They won’t.

They won’t rock the boat.

They saw what happened to Colin Kaepernick.

Hey, by the way, where is Colin Kaepernick? And where are all the people who claim to support him?

I didn’t like what Colin Kaepernick did by kneeling for the national anthem, but I don’t think he should’ve been blackballed either.

He was blackballed.

He’s being blackballed today.

Do you see any movement by the NFL players to stick up for him?

Not at all.

They won’t stick up for Brian Flores either.

Not in the way they should.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley
