    My god, is this playing the race card or what? This is pathetic. "It's not about money." Bullcrap.

    I'm not racist by ANY means, but this is stupid.

    Another great candidate for Fox Sports Celebrity Boxing. Toss Cochran in a ring with Jesse Jackson and let them beat eachother to a pulp with picket signs.

    Personally I had another Jesse in mind for this match. Someone who comes from a state with a long record of having a black coach for thier NFL team. Any guesses? :D

    Next, the NOW-gang will be suing the NFL because there aren't any female coaches...

    All respect for Johnny C. went away during the OJ debacle...

    Well if this isn't pathetic, I don't what is! This move belittles the seriousness of the real racism issues in society. What he is doing is trying to make people seem like they are racists for hiring who they want for their buisness. It would be funny to have all of the NFL owners turn around and sue Cochran for even hinting that they are racist.

    Maybe while he is at it, he can sue America itself, for not voting for enough black presidents. :rolleyes:

    Take Dennis Green out of the mix with his numbers and I'll bet it really turns the tide on the percentages of wins.

    He's working on it. It's called reparations.

    Gee, that's the coach I had in mind above when planning my dream "boxing match". Tony Dunge is also an alum from the same team.

    I'm looking to start a lawsuit to move the Arizona Coyotes out of my market. Who wants to join?
