went ballistic today about the Judge hiring.

I found it interesting that he didn't say anything after McCarthy was hired by Dallas, or Rhule by Carolina, or Rivera by the Skins for that matter. Why did this hire set him off?

The New York Giants guided and advanced Jerry Reese from scout to GM. Ronnie Barnes is at the top of his profession.

The Giants coaching staff had 11 people of color on it last year.

That's pretty cagey racism.

Fair point. What would you have me do though? Go picket Metlife?

Resistance is futile. And if I would resist it wouldn't be to get racism out of sports. I'd target something more substantive.

Not to sound like a smart ass, but I'm going to sound like a smart ass.

Does being bigoted in a "nuanced" way or bigoted in a "subconscious" way allow you to justify your support for such bigotry?

Let's cut the BS. You either feel the Giants are a bigoted operation or you don't. And you are dancing around it with semantics.


Eric, I disagree Iím dancing around. Iím typing on my phone with many distracting teenage kids still awake so pardon my brief response, but Iíll just say this: Iím a white guy married to an African-American woman who works on progressive issues, many of which touch on race relations. Having been immersed in these issues over the years, I have learned a lot. I used to think of things in the (unintended pun) black and white terms you describe above ó but I have a different perspective these days. I donít you think need to make a determination that a person is an intentional bigot or an organization is institutionally racist in looking critically at racial hiring disparities (which are consistently skewed heavily white in numerous professions, not just the NFL). I think race factors into many of our day to day decisions, including hiring decisions. Out of the 92 NFL, NBA, MLB teams, 91 are majority owned by white people (Jordan is the 1 black owner). So when I see the ratio of black coaches to black players within this 91 of 92 framework, it triggers a need to understand how these hiring disparities came to pass. You evidently disagree, but Iím not trying to be inflammatory, itís just my honest opinion.

I understand your position. You want equality of outcome rather than equality of opportunity.

The only solution to the former is to FORCE racial quotas. You must support Roger Goodell dictating to John Mara and Steve Tisch that they hire a black head coach. (I assume you are not bothered by under-representation of other races).

But you really didn't answer my question about whether or not you think the Giants are institutionally a bigoted organization?


Very discouraging response. Doesn't seem you gave anything I said any serious thought.
What other races would be under-represented among NFL coaches? Asians, Martians? Football is an American sport played almost exclusively by white and black Americans.
I never used the word bigoted. You did. I tried to show this isn't a simple question and reduce a sense of guilt about it. Sorry if that didn't come through.
You are being willfully naive to claim their is no racism in the NFL, including the Giants. I'm not proposing quotas or equal outcomes. This is a straw dog. There isn't any specific appropriate number of black NFL coaches, but there damn sure should be more than 2.

MM I have a serious question for you: do you know the data of race demographics for ALL the coaches in the NFL and if/how that demographic may have changed since the institution of the Rooney Rule?

I think it's a relevant data set, because if you want to make a point about institutional racism, I think you need to examine a larger population than the pool of NFL Head coaches, since there are only 32 of them in total.

It's simply not a big enough sample size from which to draw inferences about "institutional racism."

I'd be far more inclined to give credence to your argument about institutional racism in the NFL if the % of all minority, or even all black, coaches hasn't increased over the 20 year span of the Rooney Rule.

OBJ example  
Keyser : 1/8/2020 4:12 am : link
Just commenting on the pundits in that clip talking about OBJ and clearly implying that trading him was because of racism.

The most similar example to OBJ in terms of great physical atrributes and great production but off the field "culture" issues would be IMO Jeremy Shockey. Shockey gets hurt in 2007, Giants win super bowl, and trade him before the start of the 2008 season. I think most Giants fans would say that that was the right move because of how Shockey harmed the culture of the team and many argue that perhaps the Giants would not have won the Super Bowl had he not gotten hurt because he was keeping Eli from being the leader of the team. So I'm not sure how when OBJ was treated the same way, its racism.

For the record, 1) I was/am a big OBJ fan and was not happy with the trade at the time although I also think OBJ is not the player he used to be. 2) I think the Rooney rule is good for the league.

Hey BLB - i don't have those numbers but not quite sure they're relevant in the way you're proposing given the rooney rule applies to the head coach position only. the rooney rule has no influence over other positions.

in fact, i think there is probably stronger arguments in the opposite of what i think you're saying, since head coaches choose their own staffs, and based on pure availability and number of positions necessary to staff the numbers logically fall closer to actual demographics.

to be quite candid, i'm in no way shape or form some structural discrimination or implicit cognitive bias activist. that shit is a fact of life and is not just limited to race and nfl coaches - those and many more constructs are part of natural law. people who actually advocate for racial issues would be taken aback by my full unfiltered views - they usually find i disagree with them on certain issues they find core to their tenets and positions.

in re to black coaches and their representation i'm afraid i actually align much more closely with jack nickolson's quote in the movie the departed. i won't say the full quote bc it does include a slur, but to boil it down, he says "sure, there are racists out there, but that's something everyone has had to deal with, including the irish, and the way to get around it isn't to bitch about it, it's to figure out how to take it yourself. no one is going to give it you."

but i just as seriously disagree with and get annoyed with people who are so quick to yell about about bs reverse racism or inaccurately characterize complaints that involve race and distort them to fit their poli-eco-soci-world views (or whatever is the right way to state that). i find that sort of misrepresentation of arguments to fit their narrative just as, if not more, antithetical to good faith discussion and progress. and i hate bad faith arguments. no one said the giants were racist and i broke out that logic step by step in my post to eric. not one single person has stepped forward to counter that logic tree. and it's right there, each step listed and fully exposed. i'm in favor of progress, as i think everyone would be if this country's politics had not made that a dirty word. but now i'm tripping the third rail of this site which we've actually been riding this entire thread.

anyway, BLB, you said you were asking a serious question and so i wanted to give you a serious response. too many offsite meetings today so i won't have time for serious responses, and i have dinner tonight with a company that would bring those following this thread to their knees if they found out who it was. but if i'm not too toasty after drinking my martinis and eating my mutton chop at keens tonight i'll see what's going on.

My organization has spent the better part of 2 years on racial equity. Granted, I don't think the curriculum has lent itself to tackling this well or professionally. But, one thing that has come up more than once is this idea that racism isn't binary. However, the reality is that with this topic the application is basically binary in the general public. For example, if somebody says something offensive related to race, they are automatically labelled racist and that is their only descriptor.

Obviously is a more seldom occurrence but I posted earlier about Brian Flores. I bet SAS doesn't even know who Brian Flores is or that he has arguable less experience than Joe Judge and got hired last year as Miami's HC.

I don't think SAS is a bad guy, but I think his schtick is pretty dangerous when it comes to serious issues like this. Not fact checking and screaming about bad call in an NFL game is one thing, what's he's doing here is a completely different ball game - highly unprofessional and really bad journalism.
Another concept being thrown at us  
Matt M. : 1/8/2020 9:23 am : link
is that any decision resulting in a negative outcome based on race is a racist decision, policy, etc. Using that guideline, hiring Judge was a racist decision. I don't subscribe to this theory. Within my organization especially, this theory is also ignored when the outcome negatively impacts a race/ethnicity other than black or brown individuals. This is because the other dominant theory is that only white people can be racist because they are in power.

The problem I have is it almost condemns anyone who doesn't agree 100%. I think most intelligent and educated people in this country can recognize institutional racism is a huge problem. Even with great strides made during the Civil Rights movement to present, there are still social/institutional barriers that exist and are difficult to eliminate. But, since we are being asked to completely isolate race and this is approached almost as a totally black & white (literally and figuratively) topic, it's basically if you're not with us, you are against us.
All that said, I have a couple of comments specifically about Smith  
Matt M. : 1/8/2020 9:26 am : link
First, it's interesting that out of all the teams, 2 years in a row the Giants have been singled out as racist for their personnel decisions. Last year, it was drafting Jones over Haskins. This year it was hiring Judge.

Second, Smith may or may not be true. It is not something we will ever really prove or confirm. However, he is treading a very thin line by throwing out accusations based on nothing but his opinion and little substance behind it. This is far more irresponsible and dangerous, in my opinion, than the other opinion spewed as fact surrounding the Giants coaching decision.
BUgiantfan  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 1/8/2020 9:27 am : link
He already knows the answer to his question. And we've heard him say it for years. America, the NFL, and the New York Giants are inherently evil and racist. Equality of opportunity isn't enough. Equality of outcome must be mandated because the evil powers that be will never fix the problem. They can't because people like the Irish John Mara and Jewish Steve Tisch are bigots.

BlueLou'sBack : 1/8/2020 12:13 pm : link
I had no idea the Rooney Rule applied only to HCs and "senior FO positions."

From Wikipedia:

The Rooney Rule is a National Football League policy that requires league teams to interview ethnic-minority candidates for head coaching and senior football operation jobs.

Back to my larger point, not directed at you but at Stephen A's points:

If the overall pool of coaches at all positions in the NFL has a more representative demographic of minorities, in any kind of fair world that in itself would eventually lead to more minorities in HC and Senior FO positions, organically, which is IMO preferable.

Looking forward to your next post on the issue when you have time.

The numbers you used aren't bad - I'm just pointing out that they give an incomplete and misleading picture when used alone. Without taking the time to research the numbers too much, simply adding in a few years in between changes the picture significantly.

2003 - 3 black head coaches
2007 - 6
2011 - 8
2015 - 5
2018 - 8
current - 3

Now, you could still use these numbers to argue that the RR isn't working (though easier to argue that it might be working but not well enough). But they certainly don't "100% support the position" that the RR isn't working or that there are not more black candidates being hired.

I donít have a clue whether there was a better or equal black candidate than Judge, but I do know that the Giant paying fan base is very heavily older and white. If you donít think that plays a factor in decision making you are burying your head in the sand.
Yes Smith is an over the top sports entertainer, but there is nothing wrong with continuing to point out this disparity. And itís nice the Giants had a black GM, but the GM doesnít stand on the sidelines as a primary face of the franchise.


So you're saying an "Older and white" fan base don't want a black coach?

Dude. You root for a franchise you believe is racist. And I have the small brain?

That's some great logic there.


Hypocrisy and stupidity are two different things.

68% of the players are black but only 2 of 32 coaches are black.


I hate it when people throw out unrelated statistics. What does the % of players who are minorities have to do with the % of coaches who are? Are you suggesting that just because someone can return punts or run a route they can now coach? The skill sets are vastly different.

Football fans care about one thing only. Winning. Whoever gives the team the best chance at doing that should be hired. Whether that's for WR, RB, OT, CB, OC, DC, HC, or GM. Period.
