I am on the belief that where there’s smoke, there’s fire and considering that it seems the NFL wants to force this thing, there must be something that they’re trying to fix. After all, this is the league that has dealt with Kapernick in bad faith (although I don’t necessarily agree with Kaps approach anyway).
However, to give a team a competitive advantage for this I think is the wrong way to do it. I think it would be more beneficial to incentivize owners where they care the most, with $. What if there’s a program that can educate and help minorities coaches grow where all the owners have to invest in, and the owner that hires a minority coach gets a write off or some kind of money back, that could help teams hire as well as build strong candidates in the future.
