    You want to be a Black GM and have your staff whisper "He only got the job because of the comp picks" every time they lose a game? And have the same thing loudly stated by fans on social media?

    Whether it's true or not, that's what this does. If you ain't successful you got the job for the picks.

    Wow, this is really dumb. It's a broken system, to be sure, but this surely isn't the way to fix it.

    Wow maybe there is so much inequality in the roster composition between black and white players we should give jobs to white players even if they aren't as good as their black peers. Why not just be colorblind and hire the best coaches, GMs irrespective of their race?

    The owner who voted in the rule are the ones who have to step up and hire blacks away from other teams. But long term this rule is going to have the opposite of the intended results because it is stupid to give an opponent an advantage.

    Because they are compensatory picks, the Rams get picks as compensation for the Lions taking one of their coaches.

    It's the same as a team getting compensatory picks when they lose a player, the loins don't need compensation because they got the guy they wanted.

    Why not. You don't get a comp pick for hiring a minority coach. The team that gave the minority coach a chance and gets hired somewhere else gets a pick.

    Bunch of white guys complaining how the system isn’t fair ignoring the fact it’s been a good old boys network for ages.

    uh how come they can’t just hire the best coaches based on resume.... oh I don’t know maybe because they’ve been given decades to do it and they failed.

    Jesus Christ man.

    Lame. Woulda had more respect for you if posted something substantive instead of just actually denigrating a group of posters.

    It's still a ridiculous competitive advantage given to a team based off of things largely out of their control.

    How about financially compensating the team? Or donating to a worthy cause on their behalf?

    Handing someone two picks that could turn into a 15 year all-pro and change the balance of the game doesn't make any sense.

    I completely missed that and should have read the article. Derp! Thanks for pointing that out.

    Certainly not what I've been doing. And way to add another layer of race to the issue. Posts like these are part of the problem, not the solution.

    This is certainly exacerbating the problem as well.

    So what we have is one profession, coaching, that has relatively equal representation as a % of the population.

    Meanwhile, the profession of playing has a demographic that is overwhelmingly over-represented against the general population.

    How then does the logic flow, that the same over-representation that exists in one profession should be forced onto another profession.

    These two professions are not equivalent.

    well we wouldn’t be in this situation if they had started doing what’s right ages ago. You agree?
