Brian Flores suing the NFL. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

MANHATTAN — Uh-oh! Many fans and media members believe Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes pulled a Paul Crewe by intentionally losing Sunday’s AFC title game to the Cincinnati Bengals. Thanks to Brian Flores, we now know point shaving is commonplace in the NFL. Flores was terminated January 10th despite leading the Miami Dolphins to back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 2003. Now he’s suing the league and three franchises — the Dolphins, the Denver Broncos and the New York Giants — for racial discrimination; claiming he’s unemployed because he’s black. Flores also said Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offered him point shaving incentives to “tank” or lose on purpose shortly after he was hired in 2019. Ross allegedly told Flores he would give him $100,000 for each defeat.

Dolphins general manager Chris Grier once threatened Flores, telling him the owner was “mad” at his black ass for winning too much because he was “compromising [the team’s] draft position.” Additionally, Flores claims the Giants met with him for their head-coaching vacancy last month to comply with the NFL’s Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview negroes.

In other words, the Giants never intended to hire Flores. It was all a “sham.” The job was ultimately given to Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll who’s white. Flores is accusing the Broncos of effectuating something homogeneous in 2019. He said then-Broncos general manager John Elway showed up at the interview an hour late and hungover. Elway and his retinue had been “drinking heavily the night before.” The 58-page class action lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Manhattan Federal Court.

The NFL has no black owners and only one African American head coach.

Flores said the NFL “is racially segregated and is managed much like a plantation.”

Yet he has a white wife and he’s flanked by Caucasian lawyers.

Are NFL owners a fraternity of egotistical bigots?

Is the league rigged?

  1. The main issue is,why was Flores fired in the first place? Winning 8-9 to finish the season is not good enough to have another shot the following year? Makes no sense.

  2. There is a lot of black athletes in the NFL that know the games and can coach the game but the same goes for white also. But sometimes people just don’t interview well. I wish I could of seen his interview recording if there was any. And I think the NFL should ask the owners to record there interviews so the league can really monitor the hiring process and see why individuals are being pick over others.

  3. Stephen Ross telling him to throw games is inexcusable.

    But I’m sorry…what is racist about this story?

  4. The NFL is a dirty league always has been always will be. No black team owner says it all.

  5. Perhaps this is more evidence that the NFL is rigged. It would certainly explain stupid plays (not bad plays, like keeping the punting team on the field for 1st down, lol) no call/bad call penalties, and the inexplicable chokes.

  6. Wow the dolphins try to pay him to lose games thats why i say these nfl officials also set up these games up good for flores call these racist mf owners out i hope this explodes

  7. Who wants a HC who is willing to undermine his own team because he is mad at the GM and owner?

  8. Paid to lose and not reporting it? If he wasn’t fired he would have been cool with the felony’s he was part of.

  9. Too bad Biden isn’t Commissioner….we would have 32 black female coaches

  10. So the NFL is working with FanDuel and DraftKings to fix games so they can steal from the People? To many games in the past 2years didn’t add up? I see why now! What isn’t corrupt in 2022 smh!

  11. The NFL is totally at fault, not the individual teams. Just for example, since I’m a broncos fan. Denver just hired Hackett as coach, if that’s who they liked, if that’s the coach they think will help them the most, they have every right to pick who they want. I’m sure the last thing Denver wants to do is waste anyone’s time,
    I’m sure they didn’t want to schedule interviews with coaches they had no intention of hiring but that’s EXACTLY what the NFL is forcing them to do. If I was a black coach, I’d rather stay home instead of spending hours preparing materials for an interview an fly out somewhere for a job I have no chance of getting. But that is what the Rooney rule has done. I’m all for trying to better diversify, just try a different method. The Rooney rule is just plain stupid and created this whole mess. It’s putting teams in terrible positions and just for choosing the coach they want they’re called racist. Keep trying to better diversify yes, just find a better more intelligent way to do it.

  12. The team Owner offered him 100K to throw games, and they got mad at me when I said the NFL was fixed😂 WWF is more real than the NFL 😂 good luck with fixed Football 👍 have fun betting on them fixed games!

  13. I’ll be honest, I believe race is far too often used as an excuse for those that lack self accountability. When it’s used as such is hurts real causes for needed change. That being said, this reeks of racial discrimination and I hope he wins and accomplishes what he’s setting out to do. Like coach Flores “I deal in honesty” and when discrimination rears it head in such a way people of all color and creed need to oppose it. Oh, and I think it’s quite clear Miami is going need to be sold here soon.

  14. change is based off ownership. If you don’t own anything to have the power to make change it cant happen. African Americans need to own teams who can then put the right people in the front and back office to hire qualified black coaches

  15. Fans should file a lawsuit against the NFL owners for corruption and fraud. Imagine if you are a fan of a particular team and the owner is purposefully losing the game by telling the coach he gets more money if he makes it happen. All the games that the team should have won and yet somehow they lost. You get disappointed, even sad or lose money. Then you find out they fixed the game, you should get your money back at the very least and get compensated for playing with your emotions.

  16. The commissioner works for the racist owners and he’s not giving up his 32 million a year. He is just a puppet. The players union needs to stand up along with coaches. Everyone knows the NFL owners go by the good Ole boy system.

  17. He’s a loser. He had a .490 winning percentage and won a bunch and lost a bunch. That’s a wash with a net loss. He’s a losing coach.

  18. Players need to back coach
    These devils are very racist
    The Rooney rule don’t work

  19. Wait so he interviewed with the Broncos in 2019 ?? Why didn’t he sue them then ?? Why even take a coaching job after that if you felt that strongly that the league was being discriminative ?? Idk I’m lookin at Flores kinda sideways now

  20. Black coaches there are HBCU’s that you can build there football teams and get great black talent that you can mold and build. Go back to your roots where your needed and wanted. The NFL is not the be all. There are other ways to make an impact.

  21. This is going to be another landmark moment for the NFL along the lines of when CTE was discovered the Doctor Who made that discovery about the repeated head, and how it was affecting retired players long-term he was put through the gauntlet and he won he came out ahead it turned out good for former retired players who were able to file grievances against the NFL because of that man’s research and Brian Flores is walking down the same path and if you want to know what I’m talking about go and watch the movie concussion starring Will Smith

  22. Brian is finally exposing the liberal left lunacy inclusiveness obsession. “We need more black coaches so interview more blacks coaches even if you don’t think they are a good fit for you.” Lol

  23. As a white guy i 100% believe Brian Flores. He should never have been fired in the first place.

  24. I got a feeling when it’s all said and done the NFL will give him a lot of money to go away. I hope he doesn’t fold

  25. Oh…..so they only hire the black coach when they want to lose in order to then get a higher draft pick, sabotaging the black coach the whole way…..then they get to say the black coach was no good and fire him…. while still getting credit for hiring a black coach, and walking away with the higher draft pick…..smh 😪

  26. So whenever he doesn’t get a job it’s because he’s black ? How bout they felt the other applicant is better qualified. It seems to me that whenever he doesn’t get his way, he blames it on race.

  27. The NFL is Entertainment. Went to court and got themselves declared to be Sport Entertainers and player’s are Entertainers and by law gives them the legal Right to determine the out come of games for views and revenue owned by all 32 owners.
    All Refs are under a gag order.
    33 Billion $$$ Business and all revenue is divided by all owners equally.
    Impossible to sue because they are all supported by the Government.
    NFL ” Sports Entertainment”
    No different then a Movie are TV Show
    Brady was the Star for 22yrs and now they need a new Star.
    Absolutely Brilliant!!!

  28. The NFL will never admit fault in any racial practices amongst head coaches or front office executives. Remember the movie ‘Concussion.’ “The NFL owns a day of the week.” Their power is far greater than one might think. If the NFL or one of it’s owners ever mentioned culpability, it would destroy the league and 32 powerful, rich, white men would be out for revenge.

  29. Coaches are reaching out to say they’ve also been offered cash to lose.

    But not one coach has quit over it and said that was the reason at the time. I’m not going to give any of them credit or say they have integrity when they kept quiet until after they were fired.

  30. Lol he’s going on talk shows doing a media circuit he wasn’t a good head coach you guys look up how many head coaches get fired after every season not everyone is bill belicheck if you don’t win you simply won’t last doesn’t matter what you look like and if you do win your keeping your job simple as that now are the NFL owners racist honestly probably but if Flores was in the playoffs every year he’d still be HC

  31. I AM BLACK BLACK NOT MIXED WITH ANYTHING BUT BLACK I HAVE BEEN WATCHING F/BALL SINCE I WAS 8 YRS OLD RAIDERS FIRST BLACK AND HISPANIC COACH/ CIN BENGALS HAD A BLACK COACH DETROIT HAD A BLACK COACH DENVER HAD A BLACK COACH MIAMI HAD A BLACK COACH CLEVLAND HAD A BLACK COACH MINNESOTA HAD A BLACK COACH ,PITTSBUGH HAS A BLACK COACH, INDIAPOLIS HAD A BLACK COACH TWICE, HOUSTON TEXAS HAD RAFELL CAMARRO[ X PATIROT DEFENSIVE COACH HOW MANY TEAMS WAS HE AS HEAD COACH], NO NFL IS NOT PREJUDICE, THERE IS PREJUDICE IN ALL RACES CITY TOWNS AND COUNTRIES, BUT THERE ARE GOOD WHITE FOLKS GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO MARTIN LUTHER KING MARCHES BLACK HISTORY LOOK AT VIDEOES OF ALL THE WHITE PEOPLE IN MARCH, TODAY POLICE KILLINGS OF BLACKS, LOOK AGAIN AREN;T THOSE WHITE PEOPLE IN THE PROTEST MARCHING AGAIN AGAINST POLICE SHOOTING, SOME ONE PREJUDICE AGAISNT POTATOE ARE WE GOING TO STOP EATING POTAOE, GOD LOVE ALL BUT WHO DON;T BELIEVE, I BELIEVE! LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT ALL RACES WERE IN MARCHES, AND I LOVE U ALL. RONNEY RULE YES IT CAN BE BETTER, SO CAN THE POTATOE IT DEPENDS ON WHO COOKING IT.

  32. There are plenty of black coaches assistant coaches defensive coaches offensive coaches and 75% of the players are black.. this is ridiculous

  33. Coach Flores is a courageous person. We can only hope that whatever the result of the lawsuit, there will be a ripple effect in other institutions across America.

  34. @Ralph Malph: I think there’s three reasons why:
    1. They’re still holding that domestic violence case from his college days against him
    2. A number of reports/rumors that he does not interview very well
    3. Andy Reid is the play caller on offense, so there’s questions on how much does Bieniemy do & is he a product of Mahomes’ success?

    His contract is expiring in KC, so he might want to go elsewhere as an OC where he will have play calling responsibilities & he can wipe away those last questions. Otherwise, he could re-sign with KC & have a coach-in-waiting agreement for whenever Reid decides to retire.

  35. Flores didn’t get the job because he’s an asshole. Has nothing to do with his skin color and good luck finding a job with your racist you know me because I’m black attitude.

  36. His team of lawyers are all white, he didn’t hire any black lawyers. Sounds racist.

  37. Suing the NFL, meanwhile he was fired by, and refused to get along with, his BLACK general manager in Miami.
