1. It's also about what the Black players have done for the NFL.

It's now the top draw/sport in the nation where as it used to be baseball. College football was next with boxing and horse racing following. Basket Ball has also come to the fore and also leapfrogged baseball.

And pro basket ball is dominated even more by Black players.

Without the players, increasingly more and more African American, pro football would still be behind other sports so the know-nothings who are complaining should STFU and enjoy the Super Bowl on Sunday and watch the highly skilled athletes do their thing. And the athletes, btw, are highly paid because they are one-in-10,000 cream of the crop athletes from ranks of high school and college players good enough to make it to the pros.

They've done as much for the NFL as the league has done for them. And it stands to reason that those who have played the game know how to teach it best, so there should of course be more Black coaches.
