Brian Flores is a brilliant coach who served for 10 years with the England New Patriots and then for 2 years with Miami Dolphins. This year is not going that well with Brian Flores. He got fired from his team and he decided to sue New York Giants and NFL. Recently, Roger Goodell’s latest statement has been dubbed a “public relations ploy” by Brian Flores’ lawyers.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s latest remark addressing former Miami Dolphin Brian Flores’ lawsuit against the league has been dubbed a “public relations trick” by Flores’ legal team.
Flores’ lawsuit accused Dolphins owner Steven Ross of paying him $100,000 to wreck the 2019 season and alleged racial discrimination in the league’s hiring practices. Goodell wrote a memo issued to teams on Saturday morning.
“Racism and any form of discrimination is contrary to the NFL’s values.”
Flores’ attorneys, Doug Wigdor and John Elefterakis released a statement on the memo on Saturday.
“The statement made today by the Commissioner is, on the surface, a positive first step, but we suspect that this is more of a public relations ploy than real commitment to change. For too many years, the NFL has hidden behind the cover of foundations that were supposed to protect the rights of Black players and coaches, all while letting systemic racial bias fester in its front offices … The NFL is now rolling out the same playbook yet again and that is precisely why this lawsuit was filed.”
The war is still going on. Flores asked to court to correct the discrimination going on in NFL. Now, fans have to wait to see what will court consider. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
