I acknowledged that I think there's probably some inherent and subconscious racial bias at work in many situations around NFL hiring practices. I'm just tired of that being the go-to excuse for the main reason why a black coach was fired or passed over for a job, particularly when there are many other reasons to point to.I am willing to agree that VJ's lack of whiteness was not the only thing working against him, but I think that you are: A) overstating Fangio's resume, and B) trying to suggest that race was not an issue at all with VJ - just because it was not the only issue.
I won't even get into the fact that Joseph was set up to fail from the start, while Fangio was given carte blanche to make a much wider range of decisions. But hey, that record speaks for itself. I guess.
