I don't get the controversy over the Rooney Rule right now, or ever. I don't see how it's not working. Minority coaches are getting interviews, that's all it's supposed to do. It gives minority coaches a chance to impress and maybe steal a job they wouldn't be considered for otherwise. Yeah, obviously the Raiders wanted Gruden from the start, but so what? Other people got a chance to come in and take it away. Isn't the NFL all about competition? Doesn't this just improve the competition for coaching jobs? A few guys got a chance to get in the mix and get their name out there. Apparently owners and GMs talk to each other fairly often, so it gets around when someone looks good during an interview. If nothing else, the coaches get to work on their interview skills. How is this not a great opportunity for them? I don't understand people who whine about affirmative action, either. All they're guaranteed is an interview, an opportunity to go in there and win that job based on their interview performance. Isn't that what everyone wants? May the best person win? It's working great. Guys who otherwise never even get an interview are getting interviews, and sometimes landing jobs. No owner has ever been forced to hire someone they don't want, they can always stick with their guy, they just have to give a minority candidate a chance, that's all. All they're being forced to do is give one damn interview. Is that too much to ask? No.
