On this LMK Day 2011 I found a great article about the Rooney Rule, where each team must interview a minority when looking for a coach. So far it had worked very nicely, although there's always room for improvement.

Honestly, the Rooney rule has become a joke with teams knowing who they want to hire just bringing in a minority coach as a token gesture

I agree... and to be honest, I am not a fan of the Rooney rule. I believe that football ownership wants to win and will hire who they believe will give their team the best chance to win regardless of race....


"Baseball players will take anything. If you had a pill that would guarantee a pitcher 20 wins but might take five years off his life, he'd take it" MLB pitcher Jim Bouton about drug use in the Major Leagues... quoted in 1969.

I vow to no longer purchase any product that features sticker autographs...
If your user name is this color I'm afraid I'll have to pass on any proposed transactions at this time.

Agreed.

Should we have a "Hillis rule" so that white running backs get an equal chance?

To be completely honest, I see things like the Rooney Rule as a form of racism. To say that you absolutely must interview a minority is racist in my eyes. I don't like the rule, as was said before, it's a joke to teams that immediately know who they want to hire. I remember when I Lions went after coach Steve Mariucci. They got in trouble with the league under the Rooney Rule because the only coach they interviewed was Mariucci. If he had been a minority, though, there would have been no issues.
