Since Brian Flores shocked the sporting world with his lawsuit against the National Football League, everybody has come out to give their take on the situation. The former head coach is alleging he experienced racial discrimination during the hiring process.
If you listen to Bomani Jones, the NFL has a problem…and it’s white people.
“I just don’t know why people try to make this far more complex than it is,” Jones said. “What’s the problem? White people.”
No, that was not a slip of the tongue. He meant what he said.
“Who are the ones that are making these decisions? White people. Who are the ones that won’t change their decision making? White people. Who are the ones that only do anything in a different way when it comes these matters at the threat of litigation? White people,” said Jones.
“Y’all the ones that know these white people,” added Jones. “Y’all the ones that be hanging out with these white people. Y’all the ones that know the ones that pretend to be such good people and then make all the same decisions as everybody else.”
How social media reacted:
In the lawsuit, Flores, among other things, alleges that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross incentivized him to lose games during the 2019 season (to get better draft picks) by offering to pay him $100,000 per loss. Flores declined and the team started winning games.
Earlier Wednesday, Flores appeared on “Get Up” where he said he told Miami players about the alleged incentive.
“That was a conversation about not doing as much as we needed to do in order to win football games,” the former coach said. “Take a flight, go on vacation, I’ll give you $100,000 per loss — those were his exact words. I deal in truth, I tell the players this, as well. I’m gonna give you good news, bad news — but it’s going to be honest.”
“To disrespect the game like that, trust was lost, and there were certainly some strained relationships, and ultimately, I think that was my demise in Miami,” Flores added, according to the report.
Flores was the head coach of the Dolphins for three seasons before he was fired at the end of the 2021 NFL regular season. He led the Dolphins to a 24-25 record in that span. The Dolphins never made the playoffs in those three years.
