What if your boss asked you to cheat or steal?


Maybe he should have reported that to HR and the league if Ross allegedly did what he was claiming at the time it happened. There is a reason why companies have ethics training. Seems like he is trying to settle some scores and pass it off as him taking a stand for the betterment of everyone else. 
 

Will see what comes from this. Maybe he is paid to settle out of court. However, I have hard time seeing any organization wanting to deal with him in the future.

Maybe he was concerned with the players on the team he was coaching and all of the assistants he hired and asked to move their families to Miami. Life is complicated.

 Flores, by filing this suit, has ended his NFL career.  He could be right on these charges and my win but in the end he loses.  I still contend that the Rooney rule is a sham.

I think it means the Rooney Rule does more harm than good at this point.  I don’t really like Flores, but good for him for calling out the BS and going after these billionaire owners who think they can do whatever they want.  


“do whatever they want” as in hire the coach they want?  
 

The Ross stuff in Miami is certainly ridiculous, but if this is about the Giants coaching search… they abided by the Rooney Rule, perhaps seriously considered Flores as their 2nd option if Daboll falls through, and then ultimately hired their 1st choice.

From all reports out of Miami appears he was difficult to work with and had caused a lot of friction within the team and FO.

It’s proving to be just that. Clearly a tool for owners to hide behind when there’s 1 black head coach.  Well we’re giving them interviews at least.

Having read the complaint and the background, I've come to the conclusion that the most likely scenario is that everything Flores is saying is true. Oh sure, there's some things that are subject to interpretation (was Elway really nursing a hangover when he showed up an hour late to interview Flores?), but:

- Flores is only 40. He's not likely to sabotage his future NFL career over minor slights.

- His firing was always weird. He had finished strong, his players were obviously motivated to play for him, and Tua actually had a fine second half that restored his value. 

- I think everybody thought "the Dolphins must have some celebrity coach ready to go." A Harbaugh type. But now it seems like they didn't.

So ... did Ross actually try to get Flores to tank the season? Flores refused, Ross got pissed, fired him, and badmouthed him to the rest of the NFL owners' club?

I'm not sure what exactly precipitated the scorched earth lawsuit. Oh, I believe it is meritorious in a general sense (I really can't explain why we'd have only one black coach in these days), but it seems to me that Flores believed that his career had been destroyed by Ross even before the lawsuit. Flores seems angry (with cause), not insane.

Still… and I don’t know how this operates normally… but is it normal to hire someone while they are still in the interviewing process? We know they interviewed Dabs and Frazier, they need 2 for RR I believe. Definitely smells like BS and glad Flores is sticking it to the NFL.

Agree.

I agree, with a lot of what you posted, I was pretty damn surprised when the Dolphins canned him last month.  I thought he earned another crack at it next year for sure with the way they finished.

To those who think there’s legitimacy to the Flores/Giants lawsuit:

 

Should we launch an investigation into our hiring of Dorsey?

 

Pretty obvious we never were hiring Tee Martin if Dorsey accepted the contract offer.

So they set up a 2nd interview with a guy they weren’t impressed with after the first interview? Makes perfect sense.

What happens if the Giants settle on Daboll and Miami swoops in amd offers him an offer he can't refuse? Now they lost their choice. Always good too have 2nd or even 3rd fall back options.

So Flores was their 2nd (or 3rd) choice? After you just speculated he bombed his 1st interview. Again, makes perfect sense. You can stop now.

Consider Josh McDaniels. He bombed in Denver as a head coach, backed out at the last minute after a handshake deal in Indy in 2018, and yet he merits a head coaching job with the Raiders. Flores takes a disaster in Miami and makes then very competitive in just a couple years. Hard to argue that there isn't racism in NFL coaching hires when there is a lone black head coach and a relatively small percentage of assistant coaches.

Only way this gets changed if an impartial third party observes these interviews.

There was a legitimate chance Dorsey would follow Daboll to NYG.

Well, being it's 100% speculation because I wasn't in the room I am raising plausible things that could be in play. Aside from repeating what I say and making a snide remark can you offer any proof my ideas are so ludicrous? Were you in the room? No? Do you have anything of value or intelligence to add? Again no? 

 

Sit down, pup. Grown ups are talking.

There was a legitimate chance, in NY’s eyes, Daboll goes elsewhere.   He didn’t just walk into the interview and immediately give away all his negotiating leverage by declaring his undying allegiance to only the NYG’s HC position.
