Can I be head of the drive to bring in cheerleaders?!!!....I hate cheerleaders and promise to tell them all they are not qualified....But getting paid to watch sweaty ladies bouncing around for seven weeks sounds like a job I may get up early for.

My University band was asked to play for the Saints when they were stationed in San Antonio last season - and the cheerleaders were right in front of us. Let me tell you, they are not attractive close up.

I would hate to see cheerleaders in Black and Gold... I think they're fairly useless in an NFL game (different story in high school/college... but NFL?! No way...) and we don't need to pay a bunch of girls to wear our colors and cheer for our team when we've got a stadium full of people who are doing that already.

Before we get too deeply into why the Steelers are too good for Cheerbabes.....let me ask you guys what you think about the 'minority quota' issue?

Do you think its right that there should be a deliberate push to get more coaches of a wider ethnic diversity into the NFL?

If that doesn't grab you then how about picking one current HC from the NFL that could theoretically step in after Cowher - dont worry too much about contracts and other realistic stuff - if you could have one guy who would it be?

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Breakdown of United states demographic

White American, 80.4%, or about 238.3 million, (the definition of White includes Hispanic people who are White or reported "some other race" in the 2000 census)

Black or African American 12.8% or 37.9 million,

Asian American 4.2% or 12.4 million,

American Indian 1% or 2.9 million

Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander 0.2% or 0.6 million,

Two or more races 1.5% or 4.5 million

With 32 teams...if my calculations are correct, 6.2 jobs would go to minorities with roughly 4 jobs going to Black Americans...currently we have...
1)Lovie Smith/Bears
2)Herm Edwards/Chiefs
3)Tony Dungy/Colts...
4)Dennis Green/Cardinals.
5)Romeo Crennel/Cleveland
6)Art Shell/Raiders


There are also 5 GM jobs held by Minorites....(all of this should be credited to the "Rooney Rule" of 2002)

Seems like a non-issue unless someone is complaining that we dont have enough Hispanic or Asian coaches.

what i think is wrong is a deliberat attemp by the good ol boys to prevent minorities from obtaining these positions. kinda like the glass ceiling in the business world that prevents women from ascending the corporate ladder.

lovie smith, tony dungy, or jon gruden could be the successor to cowher.

Living in Tampa, you wouldn't want gruden as a coach. Ever since the Super Bowl, he has pretty much demolished the scubs. He might be good for a season or two but not someone I want at the helm for a very long time. He would send our team back to the good ole days of the 30's and 40's!!!

It doesn't matter what anybody thinks - Rooney pushed as hard as any of the other owners for their current policy - he will take a beating if he doesn't hire a minority - people like the Reverend Jackson will paint him as a hypocrite - doesn't matter if there are already 10 or 20 other African American coaches...

The good ole boy system is alive in well in most aspects of corporate America...but I think that the NFL can legitamatly argue that they have been very proactive in bringing in very talented competant minorities

IMHO, I think giving a minority the opportunity (aka the interview) to prove himself worthy of the position is ok but to offer him the position just based on that fact alone can be destructive to the organization as a whole!

I'm sorry I'm more of a proponent of the "IF HE'S THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB GIVE IT TO HIM" school - regardless of anything else!
