Jason Whitlock is not a fan of what Brian Flores did as the former TV personality explained on his ‘Fearless’ podcast why he thinks Brian Flores should be called out for ‘betraying’ his longtime former head coach Bill Belichick.
The New England Patriots head coach accidentally texted congratulations to Flores on getting the Giants job days before he was set to interview with them. His texts were meant for the other Brian. To Flores, though, this showed that Belichick is involved behind the scenes and has undue influence on other teams’ decisions.
Jason Whitlock thinks Flores is a snitch for what he did.
“Somebody needs to ask Brian Flores ‘do you think you’ve been disloyal to Bill Belichick here in any way?’ Do you think putting Bill Belichick in the crosshairs is fair to Bill Belichick? If he carries on with his lawsuit and there are depositions, and the NFL starts asking for access to Bill Belichick’s phone records and text message…Brian Flores, no one has a problem with any of this? Whatever went on between Brian Flores and Stephen Ross, wanting to tank games, and the guy offering you $100,000 a game for losing…a lot of people would call that ‘snitching.’ We’re all good with this kind of snitching I guess because it potentially harms a White person so that’s ‘good’ snitching.
Brian Flores does not look like a good leader of men in any of this. Brian Flores is a snitch. It’s pretty reprehensible what he’s done to Bill Belichick in this scenario. Bill Belichick has him on his coaching staff, develops him up, put him in a position to become an NFL head coach, and now the very first reference in this lawsuit is a Bill Belichick text. This man is putting Belichick’s stuff out there like this, and making him the centerpiece of a lawsuit against the Giants, the NFL, the Broncos, and the Dolphins. Bill Belichick – star witness, centerpiece, and his text messages and his phone records perhaps being injected into this deal.”
According to Flores, the instance was just one example of NFL teams conducting sham interviews with Black head coaching candidates just to satisfy the Rooney Rule.
The New York Giants responded to the allegations levied against them in Brian Flores’ lawsuit against the NFL and its teams.
“Brian Flores has raised serious issues in the filing of his complaint,” the Giants said in a statement. “The specific claims against the Giants and Mr. Flores’ allegations about the legitimacy of his candidacy for our head coach position are disturbing and simply false.”
