    The National Football League is mulling the implementation of a new policy to encourage teams to hire a black head coach or general manager, by offering to boost the draft position of a team that makes such a hire.

    The league took criticism this year when a black candidate was hired for only one of five head coaching jobs that had recently come open. Several months ago, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledged that the league wanted to encourage teams to hire black coaches, and now it looks like moves are being made to facilitate that plan.

    According to NFL.com, several new proposals are in the offing that officials hope will prepare the way for more black coaches to be hired.

    Heard a long interesting discussion about this on ESPN radio this morning, and it sounds completely stupid. And most agreed, even the African American commentators.

    Hire an AA as head coach (or positional coach) equals extra draft picks. Think that won't be exploited? Much longer discussion about the stupid Rooney rule and why fewer African Americans aren't in coaching. Not enough time.

    Leave it to Roger Goodell to interject racial politics when many of us just want to hear about sports.

    IDC, The NFL can do whatever the hell they want to do; ever since reinstating Michael Vick they are dead meat in my book.

    How high will the extra draft picks be? Any extra late-round picks will mean little and I doubt if the owners will vote to give teams desperate enough to do this high round picks. They are not about to give another team advantages

    Besides, this would be really racist.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    The nfl is just making itself more irrelevant in the name of racial justice.

    Like Biden's self imposed rules for a VP pick. Has to be a woman. There goes around 50% of the choices. Should be a woman "of color". There goes 20-ish% of women. Wile all the while saying he want what's best for the country...
    I think the NFL should get picks for hiring a trans-gender coach who doesn't speak English.

    The simple fix is they should stop keeping score. That'll fix it.
