Who will welease Wodwick the Wapist?

I don't know if I should feel honored or offended....

Sorry... I'm just a hairy naked guy.


Feel honoured. By the way, great 6 o'clock shadow
I'm outraged that the San Francisco 49ers don't have a gay coach.

There's a lack of diversity on the playing field also, is that a concern? Have you noticed teams like Green Bay Packers, New York Giants and New England Patriots have a lot more white players then most teams??

Mike Singletary has token black guys Vantz Singletary and Al Harris and really all-around, not very good coaches. I am sure the players noticed and want good coaches to coach them.

Wait... we're talking about ethnicity?

s**t... I thought we were looking for diversity...

Why limit yourself?

Here is our new special teams coach:




Well there are not very many Mexican, Asian, Filipino, etc, etc, coaches out there.
Dont think it matters, as long as we win.
Just another example of people looking to be offended.

no, he's just fat. so his cheeks push up against his eyes.

Way to go there syber I knew you were good for something.

The point of diversity is being able to connect to different cultures. On that note I actually believe it would be nice to have some black personnel department people. Someone who relates to the players. I just saw a special on Tamba Bay Coach Raheem Morris and they identified him as someone who got his players because he had some street cred. Point is there are alot of urban Black kids who grow up and play football, to bad we couldn't have kept Sing as a spiritual mentor....

Explain, from my lily white lack of knowledge, "Street cred" is acquired from criminal behavior. Michael Vick has street cred, so if you need ex criminals on the staff to relate to players, that is pretty pathetic.

It makes no sense b/c there is no such thing as street cred. Just some negative term made up to describe some black people that folks understand. That's why you associate street cred with black athletes. Have you ever heard a white guy who has criminal behavior having street cred? Nope he's just a criminal. Hip hop culture is mostly to blame b/c they promote criminal activity. Like it's cool, thus the term street cred arises from the folks who don't truly understand the ignorance behind it. I have no idea what that would have to do with being an NFL coach. He's not coaching folks in the streets he's coaching millionaires. Thus why the term and whoever said that on whatever special was just lost. How bout him being young, enthusiastic, and just being a good coach is the reason he's having success. Or about him being from the same background and economics standards which allows him to relate. Instead they call it street cred b/c he's black. Gotta stop using terms to divide people when it's all the same thing. White NFL coaches have been successful and relating to black athlete's for a very long time now so i just don't understand how Raheem having street cred is the reason for his success. Maybe that helps their off the field relationship but practice is practice and football is football when it's game time.

and I don't give a s**t abut diversity on the coaching staff.

I don't think we'd have time to wake you up... they'd already be... umm... gone.

I just can't help but imagine the reaction if the coaching staff went into the locker room wearing KKK crap... I don't think they'd have time to light a match for that cross you mentioned.

Andy Lee would kick all of their testicles into their tonsils.

You do know he's the enforcer in the locker room, right?

Fear the leg.

We had more black coaches than just about any staff last year and they lost all their "street cred" when we sucked. I don't care what color you are just coach well and win.
does it really matter? I am tired of people always looking at race. so what if our coaching staff so far is not diverse. maybe people should start paying attention to their coaching ability rather than trying to start controversy over such pointless things as race. Everyone is diverse they all have different backgrounds and coaching experience isn't that enough. spend ur time thinking about something bigger than youre inability to look past race in life. seriously

I see what you did there.

I go through so much wax.... It's worth the pain, though. Oh boy, is it worth it.

We should have a wax party sometime.

I agree with just about everything in your post, but I also know there will be some players who will definitely notice and have an issue with the lack of color in Jim's choices. The race element is always there whether we agree with it or not, and there will always be players who read that into situations, regardless of validity. Yes, you should go for the best available; it's just too bad that a couple couldn't have been black to avoid future potential controversy. That's just reality.

Maybe it's because the work visa would be too much hassle....

Lots of American coaches, though.

Too bad they're all human.
