"In addition to that new collective bargaining agreement, there's something else of note in the baseball world today. For the first time, the team from Cleveland is playing under the name guardians. In the wake of the murder of George Floyd, Cleveland decided to change its name. It retired the team's Native American name and mascot, which were pretty racist. Last year, the year prior in 2020, Washington D.C.'s NFL team did the same with its name, which was a racial slur against Native Americans. Now that team is called the commanders. As marketplaces Savannah Maher reports, economic pressures played a role in turning the corner in a long campaign. We've had strong evidence since the early 2000s that Indian mascots are harmful, says Ariane Eason, a Professor of psychology at UC Berkeley. More than two decades of research shows that the use of native mascots decreases indigenous youth self esteem, community worth, and what they hope they can accomplish in the future. Easton's work finds that these mascots also promote racist stereotypes of native people. As aggressive or savage or primitive, which makes sports fans feel comfortable dressing up in red face or hurling racist slurs at opposing teams. The American psychological association called for the retirement of these mascots in 2005, but it took 15 years and a different incentive for some proteins to make the change. Well, you know what, I think we can say conclusively in the end, it's money. Kenneth shropshire is CEO of the global sports institute at Arizona state university. In the wake of George Floyd's murder, he says there was a national push to retire racist branding, and that put a spotlight on the Washington football team. And that motivated a couple of key sponsors FedEx and Nike to say, you got to change the name. And they did, rather than lose sponsorship deals, crystal echo hawk is a citizen of the pawnee nation of Oklahoma and director of illuminative, which focuses on media portrayals of native people. She says Black Lives Matter helped advance this issue. The ground had already been made fertile, right? And had been sort of sewed until the over decades and decades of native blood organizing. She hopes the same combination of social and economic pressure can topple mascots that remain. Well, it's opening day for the Atlanta Braves. And we have teams like the braves. We have teams like the Chicago Blackhawks and nearly 2000 K through 12 schools across the country, still use Indian mascots, according to the National Congress of American Indians..

"When all the counting is done more than a 100 million people likely tuned into the Super Bowl last night, and there was plenty to take in, the hip hop nostalgia fest that was the halftime show. Eminem taking a knee that weird Uber eats ad. Oh, in the football, sorry, Cincinnati. Now that the season is over, the biggest story in professional football is a federal lawsuit against the NFL, alleging a pattern of discrimination against black coaches. Marketplaces Andy Euler reports. 70% of NFL players are black. But only 16% of the league's general managers are, and just 6% of its head coaches. What we're seeing in NFL is the equivalent of if we had 80% to 90% of the coaches in the National Hockey League being African American. That's kind of shropshire. He runs the global sport institute at Arizona state university, and he wrote the book in black and white, race and sports in America. People have known for a long time that minorities have a steep hill to climb to get ahead in NFL management. It's according to Jason belser. He's an attorney in coach's agent. We have always known that until somebody stepped up with a smoking gun. And he said, hey, I have actual proof that the system is rigged against me. Nothing was going to change. Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores thinks he has that proof. Flores got a text from his former boss, Bill Belichick. Congratulating him on getting the job as the New York Giants new head coach. But Flores interview wasn't for another three days. Turns out Belichick thought he was texting Brian dabel, who is white and ended up getting the job. Flores told CNN that he went ahead with the interview anyway, but wondered whether there was any point. You know, is this real? Am I wasting my time? The NFL has known for a while that it's teams don't hire enough minority coaches. The league tried to fix the problem in 2003 with the Rooney rule. That's named after the late Dan Rooney, who owned the Pittsburgh Steelers and was the chairman of the NFL's diversity committee. The rule says any team seeking a head coach has to interview at least one non white candidate. Nelly drew is a Professor of sports law at the university of buffalo. She says, the league's numbers speak for themselves. The Rooney rule is well intentioned as it might have been, apparently, is not working. And that's a problem. In the lawsuit, Flores claims that Rooney rule interviews are a sham, just teams checking boxes. Kenneth shropshire and Arizona state says by filing suit, Flores is taking a huge risk. You have somebody who's in the prime of his career that steps up and says, this is what's going on. I am going to probably sacrifice my career to try to move the needle forward on this issue of not hiring black men in the National Football League as head coaches. Shropshire says the problem starts at the top. There is one black team president in the league. Only two of the 32 franchises are owned by people of color. Zero of them are black. In the lawsuit Flores suggests the NFL seek black investors to become potential NFL team owners. Maureen Weston, a sports law professor at pepperdine says every organization can benefit from more diverse ownership. The ability to invest in an inclusive community reflective of fans of reflective of the players. It's just way too long that we've just accepted that this is the way things are. The NFL says, Florida's lawsuit is without merit. Over the next few months, the league will likely file a motion to dismiss the suit or go to arbitration, says Mike McCann. He's a law professor at the university of New Hampshire. But if the judge doesn't grant either request at that point it really becomes a threat to the NFL, because then we go into pretrial discovery, where records have to be turned over emails, texts, owners, general managers might have to testify under oath, at least in sworn, testimony, McCann says, at that point, the NFL might decide to settle out of court.

"Back. So you wrote in October about a new study from Arizona state university's global sports institute, which looked at the racial makeup of MLB managers over the last decade or so. And you did some reporting about whether the so called Seeley gruel about interviewing minority candidates for top field in front office positions has actually had its intended effect. Memo to teams went out in April 1999, but just to focus first on managers after the recent hirings or re hirings of Mark katsi and buck showalter. I think there's still only 6 managers of color in the majors two of whom are black, but black doesn't count. So in your piece, which we'll link to, you summarize some of the findings of that global sports institute study. Could you recap some of the main takeaways there? Absolutely. Well, that was actually a really interesting piece to get into because I got the field study data in advance. So I knew exactly what the numbers I was going to be working with were. And it was kind of, I don't want to say affirming, but it was to actually see the things that I had always thought about, you know, manage your hiring and MOB to be true and to have data behind it. Things like, we laid them out in the piece, but you know, over the ten year period, only a black managers were dismissed but only three were hired. 13 managers, we have no previous coaching experience where hired 12 were white one was of color. 7 white minor league managers were higher compared with just two of color. I could go on. It just really put into some form of data in charts and tables. For us to be able to see, there really is an issue with hiring non white managers in Major League Baseball and minor league baseball. And some of the folks I interviewed for this. I did a lot of reporting. I'm talking walking down the streets of Cleveland on my cell phone. When I'm supposed to be on a fun trip. Just listening to the experiences of people who are like, you know, we get interviewed, but it's really just to fill a quota. It's really just to check a box. It's really, you know, constantly interviewed, but never hire was a constant refrain. And I think this piece hopefully digs into all of that. Why aren't people being spoken to any further? Why are we stuck here? I also got to speak to the man himself, which was really interesting. And I think that one of the problems that your piece highlighted in that the study highlighted is that even when managers of color get into the door, they have a much shorter leash in terms of how long they are kept on the job and then they are less likely to be rehired. So even when progress is made, it seems like it is very halting. I'm curious in your conversations with C like and I know you got into some of this in the piece sort of what is his assessment of the success of the rule and how closely does he see that sort of hewing to his original intent when he introduced it? He sounded like, you know, he didn't really want to get into the current state of the league. He only wanted to focus on when, you know, he was in charge of things. And I guess I kind of understand that. You don't want to publicly say anything about something that you don't have any control over but are still connected to. But he made it a point to constantly mention that Major League Baseball is a social institution. It should mirror society, and that that was his goal. I asked if maybe to see the rules should be amended. It's part of an interesting how after this came out, it kind of was amended. But he really seemed to focus in on he really wanted the league to look like America. And whether or not that was achieved, I don't think he sees it as an achievement. I think he sees it as just this rule is a step toward getting there. It's not going to change everything. And he told me he didn't want to tell people who to hire. I think that's where things get a little murky for anyone in leadership. They believe that any type of affirmative action is them telling people who to hire. When in actuality, if you don't give people any sort of guidelines for hiring, we end up with what we have now. We end up with non white managers who can not make a mistake or they are out. They don't get second chances. They don't get to manage for 20 or 30 years. I mean, you have dusty, but he's kind of an outlier. Right. Yeah, I was going to bring that up. I hadn't even realized just what a significant percentage of really all of the manager seasons that we're talking about here are represented by dusty baker alone and the fact that he has gotten multiple opportunities that he has worked for 5 different teams as a manager that really makes him an outlier here. And we talked to rob Arthur a little bit about his pieces about racial bias in player promotions and the lack of black catchers. He also wrote something that you cited in your piece about the racial makeup of managers and he noted that not only does it not reflect the player population, but also he wrote the average white manager less a little more than 5 years in the league, while the average manager of color only makes it 3.6 years, so 30% shorter with essentially the same record just as much on field success. So that doesn't explain it there, but really dusty is such an exception to this rule, unfortunately. Isn't that incredible? Dusty could be our grandpa and that means that there has been no actual change.

"In july when he called the company's design of the latest kyri eight signature shoes trash on social media irving subsequently walked those comments back irving one of the most dazzling players on the globe who every game seems to pull off some basketball magic trick. Heretofore never seen as to this point hesitated to receive a covert nineteen vaccination a position that has caused everyone from kareem abdul-jabbar new york city mayor. Bill de blasio and spain's prime minister to oppose his stance under new york. City law irving cannot compete in brooklyn home games or practice at the teams facility without at least one dose of a cove in nineteen vaccine while irving has not publicly confirmed he's unvaccinated. He participated in nets media day. Remotely on september twenty seventh and did not practice with the team in brooklyn on tuesday. Due to the city's vaccination protocols nike irving's biggest sponsor plans to release the kyri eights in november sales would benefit if he were actually playing full-time the company not to mention. The nba has nets teammates and fans won't serving to receive a vaccine. Some ninety five percent of nba players are already vaccinated. Time reached out to nike for comment on the irving situation. Nike chose to stay mum on the matter. We're living in an age. When consumers demand that companies take stands on important issues nike itself for example through its full support behind colin kaepernick after his social justice protests effectively got him fired from the nfl. Supporting vaccines and public. Health would seem like a worthy cause for the company not to mention in its own self interest. If irving gets sick his performance could suffer if he spreads the disease is reputation could take a serious hit so by staying. Silent on irving is nike being hypocritical or just carrying out a smart business strategy that protects company that generated forty four and a half billion dollars in revenues in its most recent fiscal year. It's probably some combination of both just this week. Nike announced that all. Us office based employees will need to be vaccinated. The company plans on calling. Its workers back to offices on january tenth. So while irving may not technically be a nike employees. The company's position could be interpreted as a double standard if nike and other sponsors believed that vaccines are important and everyone should get them. They should say the same about their athletes says ricardo fort former vp of global sports and entertainment partnerships at coca cola. Who now has his own consulting firm. I don't see a reason for having two different approaches from a strategic perspective however nike has good reason to stay on the sidelines. First off irving may soon receive his shot. The nets first game in brooklyn as on october twenty fourth and only needs a first vaccination shot to be eligible to play so irving has some time to decide whether he's willing to miss games and while some consumers may be upset about kyri stance. They're not taking it out on nike. At least not yet. So the company has little incentive to inject itself into the vaccine wars. Look their business is built on selling sneakers and apparel says scott rosner a sports consultant and academic director at columbia university's sports management program. There's a social justice component of what they do but that's not what drives their business and their growth while the numbers would indicate that most consumers disagree with irving stance sixty two percent of americans have received at least one vaccine dose and fifty. Six percent are fully vaccinated. That might not really matter. From nike's perspective athletes do have freedom of choice says rosner and at the end of the day. The bottom line is still the bottom line. Kyrie irving sells a significant number of sneakers for nike. That kind of thing at least for the time being allows them to take more of a hands off approach if irving ultimately decides to sit out his home games nike may have to craft some sort of response but the timing of his decision on the heels of the release of his latest nike shoe would likely prove more harmful to business than any kind of mass backlash brand shaming and virtue signaling by advocacy groups of all types have become so commonplace as to have lost part of their power and influence says david carter founder of the sports business group and adjunct professor at the university of southern california's marshall school of business. Remember when nike threw its weight behind nick. Loud calls for nike boycotts followed instead sales. Rose we can disagree with irving's misunderstanding of science says rosner but does that make it rise to the level of boycott where there's going to be a mass boycott against kyrie's i don't think so irving is a complicated character. He's done plenty of good like committing one and a half million dollars to supplement the income of wnba players who chose to sit out there twenty twenty season due to cove in nineteen concerns or to work on social justice issues but he has also shared flat earth. Theories and last season broke nba safety protocols by attending a family. Birthday party mask less now. On the eve of the nba's seventy fifth season. He's created a vaccine controversy. It's a bad spot. Says longtime sports business. Professor kenneth shropshire who leads arizona state's global sports institute. It's hard for nike to lay low. But i think that's the best thing they can do while hoping he just gets that jab. Meet walter wellman. The owner woman's autoparts. Everything was fine until his calibration system took a turn for the worse critical failure failure.

"N. p. r. this the indicator from planet money. I'm stacey vanik smith. The olympics is wrapping up this weekend and this has been a strange olympics. Nobody in the stands kovin spreading through the olympic village protests in tokyo while. I'm in my tiny tiny hotel room which I can't even stretch my arms out to yoga in the hallway. It's only a few steps away. it's It's very very tiny. Our own mandalay. Del barco has been reporting on the olympics for npr from tokyo. It's been very interesting and strange and kind of humbling to be here as a journalist as well. There's not a lot of us here kind of a lonely olympics. I should say mandalit says these olympics have also been marked by all these protests a lot of them over the cost of this olympic games which is one of the most expensive olympics on record. I know cost a lot to put these Olympic games on and the some of the venues were or the venues were paid for by tax dollars here in japan largely so i think there was a lot of feelings about that but here tokyo is in the majority cities that host the olympics. Almost always lose money on it. So why did they do it today. On the show we take a look at the costs and benefits of hosting the olympics. Right after the break this message comes from. Npr sponsor fund rise making investing in private real estate as easy as investing in stocks bonds or mutual funds build a more diversified portfolio today at fundraise f. u. n. d. r. i s. e. dot com slash indicator. This message comes from npr sponsor capital one capital one auto navigator can help you find a car get prequalified instantly and see your real monthly payment without impacting your credit score capital one. What's in your wallet. Terms and conditions apply more at capital. One dot com slash auto navigator. We're joined by kenneth shropshire. Ceo of global sport institute at arizona state university and victor matheson professor of economics at college holy cross in massachusetts. So victor let's start with you. How much did the summer games cost. The olympics in tokyo were hugely problematic from an economic standpoint way before kovin hit so they originally had a price tag of seven point. Three billion dollars. That's a lot of money just to start with. But those numbers had risen to fifteen and a half billion dollars officially and over twenty five billion dollars. Unofficially by december twenty nineteen so before a single person in japan ever got sick from cova. Did we already had an olympic games that we were looking at a twenty five billion dollar price tag and there's just simply no way that the money amount of money generate from the olympics can possibly cover those sort of classes. Okay kenneth. i'm gonna throw this question to you. Which is i think the question that always comes into my head about the olympics. Why does anyone want to host the olympics. This is extenuating circumstances but it seems like almost every single city that's ever the olympics has lost money sometimes. There are like political issues that happen. I mean why does anyone want to host the olympics. Chroma sofas devil's advocate. I love it. Devil's advocate but it is the or of that brings to your community. It's what it brings to your city. You are mexico city in nineteen sixty eight. And you want the world to know that. Latin america's a place to go to your tokyo and sixty four where maybe it made more cincinnati does today and you wanna know twenty years after world war two. This is a city. This is a country that part of the global community. If you're los angeles in eighty four. We're not just hollywood. Were part of the pacific rim. So it's so it's big issues like that and it's infra cities who are the ones had been on this. It is like building infrastructure. It's like building roads and highways and parks. And the like but this is this is not a mutual fund where there's a return on investment and victor. What is your take on this issue. I mean from what i understand. It's very rare for cities to be able to make money on the olympics. I think one of the few was los angeles in nineteen eighty-four right so first of all los angeles was just a very remarkable and unique situation. And what had happened. There is that los angeles was left as the only bidder. Back in one thousand nine hundred four for the games and when you're the only bidder of course you can dictate the terms of the bid to the i o c. Rather than the other way around and so they said. Hey we'd we'd love to host the games but we're not building new facilities you can use the rose bowl you can use the coliseum. These facilities that even then we're already over fifty years old and when you do that you can really keep those costs down. A worth of the info four olympics in my youth. I ran the sport of boxing initially sponsorship in licey. yes. I did sponsors licensing. I am forced gulf so. La was that unique situation. Ironically there was one city that was still bidding theron and that was during the hostage crisis so wisely there was the decision. Well we will include them in this conversation and so la have this tremendous leverage. Is there a kind of kenneth mentioned. Is they're kind of like a softer sort of pay off. I mean is there like a payoff in like maybe not right away but in like visibility for your city long-term tourism on the answer for that is yes and that's of course what we call the legacy effect right and you can have a couple of kinds of legacy here number. One part of this is actually real infrastructure. You you make your roads better and you build your airport. Expansions and and both greece in rio have expanded subway systems. Thanks to the olympics. And then there's that lasting there's that intangible thing about becoming a major league city right or putting you're sitting on the map but even there requires a very unique situation. I think the best two examples of this. We have our barcelona which was kind of in the shadow of madrid and lesser known as a tourist destination it was about tenth or twelfth in in europe in tourist destination before the early nineteen ninety s After the olympics it's jumped into the top five and tourism in europe and so there's a good example Salt lake city also following the olympics. Ski visits to utah. Significantly outpace ski visits to colorado. So there's some legacy effect that you're getting out of these things. Are you guys going to be watching the olympics. I'm a big fan. I have devolved away a little bit. I was caught up old enough. Where the medal. Count things a big deal and we get more this. This media presentation the athlete back story than we had in the past. And you got so many options of ways to watch the good or bad thing now is you can almost watch every event if you want to as opposed to just wait and see what. Abc would share with you on a given day again. Some of these great powerful moments that you get from sport. That again is worth something. But the question is whether it's worth twenty five billion dollars. This episode of the indicator was by julia. Richie engineer huxtable.

Following periods when inflation has running below 2% appropriate monetary policy will likely aimed to achieve inflation moderately above 2% for some time. L said, too little inflation can lead to unemployment in price instability. This announcement means in English. The Fed will keep interest rates very low for years to come with that.

"K. Hey everybody I'm Brian Clark. Vp of content and engaged learning at work in sports DOT COM. And this is the work in sports podcast a little housekeeping before we head into this episode last week during the whole week at work in sports we had multiple leadership meetings all focused around. What can we do that helps right now? You know there's so many brands out there right now. That are that are sharing their story sharing what they're doing sharing how to help. And we're inspired by that. Just like all of you. Are you know. There's a lot of great stories out there of people as individuals and businesses who are changing their focus or Changing the way they do things in order to to help out those that are in need and we're amongst those So I want to run through some of the things. We came up with last week to help and that we're going to be implementing in the first week next couple of weeks and then we'll get into some of the subject matter for this episode. You think will be really helpful as well number one. We're going to ramp up our content because I think right now inside social isolation we kind of need it. We need another voice. We need somebody to listen to her talk to. I hope that I can provide some of that but we also need advice for kind of surviving. What's going on right now and leveraging the opportunities that we do have rather than just wallowing in and what we don't have so we're three podcasts week. Mondays and Fridays will continue to be well. Can't really continue to be Mondays. And Fridays will be focused on surviving and thriving in these crazy times as it relates to your career so for example last Friday. I did an episode that was specifically on how to properly work from home the Friday before that I interviewed Kenneth Shropshire Co the Global Sports Institute. About what this means for the sports industry moving forward last. Monday advice for conducting video interviews and more so these are all very timely to what's going on right now with corona virus. We are going to start doing more video interviews. Everybody is because this is just people will still need to hire. There's been my philosophy is it? Yes there's going to be a downturn in the jobs that are available but what. I'm hearing a lot from employers. Is if they were hiring for a role and they were hoping to hire in the next thirty days. A lot of them are just saying okay. We're GONNA stay on this path but we're going to maybe higher in ninety days more hundred twenty days so there is pushing back their timeline. They're not stopping their hiring. But a lot of it's going to be conducted via video so again we're GONNA try to look for those things that are going to be a trend in the time that we're in and try to ramp lean into that content. I'm going to get more guests. That are going to specifically talk about how we're affected now what it will look like moving forward so again look for those episodes. Listen to them. It's very timely information on Wednesdays. We're still gonNA stick with our expert interviews so right now. They're not going to be corona virus related. There will come a time when we get some of those but these are these right now are going to be more of the normal career focused expertise. Part of that is because a lot of I conducted a lot of interviews before. This was that big of a deal. So I have a backlog of interviews that are really smart and important and I don't want to waste them because I don't know I think we only break from the corona virus coverage as well so Wednesdays we will still maintain career focused expertise mostly going to be very active on our private facebook group which you can join by searching for work in Sports. Dot Com. I'm sorry working sports podcast group on facebook. It's your few questions and I'll grant you.

"Is You know we try to think back to? When hands the hand sanitizers began to appear. And it's certainly it's been for. It's been a presence but I but I think we're GONNA see a much greater presence of of that kind of Aid for for fans. That's kind of a minority if you will in facilities and that kind of encouragement of of using these things you know something beyond you know the guy He's GonNa just whack you sit down for a tip so it is something I it's probably something something we should be billing anyway and again you know highlight is five times today. You and I are doctors so we don't know but there is no conversation about You know things should there be some degree of of of Disease and folks around anyway to keep people healthy. You know that sort of stuff. I probably. I don't know but it probably will be part of greater other goals. W More discussion about. Should we keep dying this kind of thing? Or what layer should we leave in that we brought in so you? So you actually right. I can remember. I worked at the nineteen eighty-four Olympics. And you think about that moment in time it was the first time on mass that I can say the word at the time magnetometers brought in metal detectors and it was a whole big and it was because of the threat of whatever kind of Soviet on those call. Terrorism whatever the Soviets might do at the Olympic Games And then from that day forward and metal detectors in a regular part of forty minutes it is interesting in the United States. We definitely have more social society. We like to go to arenas and Events and festivals and and that is a we tend to spend more to go to these types of events and yet at the same time. There's been this draw for people to come closer to home bigger. Tv's more better abilities to to watch and do more things from the privacy of your own home. I wonder we've always talked about the sports industry in general being very strong in a recession. Because people still want to be entertained and yet in something like this I wonder if it might have a different spin on things and it would incentivize more people to stay home but again to the point you made earlier. I mean the meteorites deals are still where the teams make a lot of their money. I wonder how this will play out in the future. If more people will stay home or if they'll come flocking back to the arena's yeah and this and that that problem you know facilities and Schwartz enterprises were having anyway White screaming screen at home and I got my own special flavored popcorn. And you know I. I got my own restroom right here you know. Why do I need to go? And you'll all these people so the idea of dealing with with people and and this native moment will serve a encouraged Another faction of people just saying I'm not going anymore. I've I've got my my setup in place to to watch easy deal with this so yeah absolutely right it but it's no fortunately for the business of sports at that thinking has been Addressed in part of the Calculus on building these new facilities and what kinds of Amenities yellow available. What are you? What a little perks do you get? Because you came to the game live. What is it that you get that? You CAN'T GET Sitting in your living room. So so that's that's long. Been a part of of what the business sport has had to deal with so It's nothing but it will be ramped up even more. I was reading during the last recession that the economist stated that sports in particular are by and large standing up to the recession better than most industries. I found that fascinating because again like I was looking for historical points of reference to you. Could kind of project Veritas might affect things? What do you think about the Global Sports Industry? Do you believe that? It is better positioned than other industries for recovery wants this is contained. You look closely at that stuff for maybe five ten years there are a bunch of articles written in pre and probably the area are sports recession. Proof and for the most are the arguments. Are that that that they are that there. There is a great desire to preserve that part in spending in kind of look at it. People have these dollars that they make they keep carved out because people even if they don't recognize that it's an important part of their life but it is a segment that if things are too bad can go You know going to a game because it out before you cannot food so it's not it's not that severe So the idea that that it's recession proof it. It's also something that's society sort of encourages participation and attendance at You know all the You know President Roosevelt during World War War Two. Let's keep the baseball games going to to to keep you know the public Energized and excited about something you know something to do so there is always that town. There's always this moment of of deciding not to hold the Games. I was Kinda looking around to see what kind of commentary would comparisons with the with the World War Two moment with the Kennedy assassination woman with the nine eleven molin. You not just. This is just one of those decisions but in many ways I think this one was In the end again with the NBA's leadership a lot easier in more sensible decision to just. Let's not play for a while. It's not it's not that that important so the idea that Once gets available again and no matter where the economy is It's freely certain people will find a way to come back if it's available. Professors shops higher. Thank you so much for coming on and discussing with. The things are changing so rapidly at this time. It's always nice to have some reason discussions where we can look to the future a little bit because we will get back to normal at some point and it's interesting to look back at history and understand how that projects to our future. Thank you so much for joining me today. Thank you thank you to professor Kenneth Shropshire for coming on the show today. Ceo of the Global Sports Institute at Arizona State University People. There's not a lot of hard and fast. We know this is going to happen type responses we can give right now but we can project out on things like layoffs and how this will impact employment and whether the fans will come back to games where their processes will change so.

WFAN FM New York welcome back to the fan it is Martin Luther king day here on the fan we also know our Superbowl teams we've been talking about one of the key factors for the cheese is it feeds the role of their offense of corner be enemy and he didn't get much of a look as a head coach this offseason with the changing of a of jobs and openings and to talk about the lack of minority hires in the NFL in sports want to bring in someone who is qualified to talk about it his name is Ken Shropshire professor Shropshire he's the CEO of global sport institute a DDS distinguished professor of global support and Arizona State University he's also professor emeritus from Wharton which is how I know him I confess I took a class from the tennis rapture welcome to the program thank you Laurie are I'm so I want to start off with for people the the Rooney rule it was obviously designed to force NFL to force owners to talk to and meet minority candidates and put them into the consideration set for general managers for head coaches in the NFL in your opinion in your opinion was the Rooney rule is is the idea right and the execution wrong what's going on with it well the idea is right I think it's how you're hard pressed to say it's working right now but the idea of that it encourages owners who might not of their own volition the interview candidates for color immediate it does that I mean it's a you know you gotta get bring somebody in the reality is we also is that it's not always a genie wine interview and sometimes people that are the best candidate are brought in this capsule of who happens to be local or of somebody where there is a relationship already and it's not like somebody like the until judge who's been discovered that kind of process yeah I it's not that long ago a few years ago where we had eight minority head coaches in the NFL we're down to four one Ron Rivera got picked up quickly but he's a two time NFL coach of the year we have three African American head coaches in the NFL and yet seventy percent of the players are black so here in terms of just looking at it in your opinion what would be yeah I I did and I doubt you have a number specifically in mind but somewhere between four minority head coaches and you know there's thirty two teams somewhere in there is a number that you would feel like represents progress the do you have a number in mind I I I I don't but certainly going from a higher return nine down to three African Americans is is not where it should be and and I think the way we can look at the you know for those who are concerned about you know it takes number which which is always problematic it is that there are some outstanding candidates that they don't seem to be getting a first or in the case of people like Jim called cold will Leslie Frazier or or second look second third look where it is happening for people that hard not black or Latino candidates so so so that's really where what the question is is is there something within the process again what the really rules trying to resolve which it it does some of is there something in the process that doesn't bring candidates like there'd be enemy to the top and and it doesn't allow them to get the opportunity yeah how would you fix it or change it any ideas you know I've been you know first of all I will surprise that helping turn up this year Majeed as you noted last year on black Monday they were of five African American coaches that were were were fired and nobody really of five other than Jim called world too much about you know what why you know why you would become the less you but because he's been been let go in in retrospect firing Jim Caldwell and moving on from has worked out to offer this is Edward W. of it and that happens so why didn't you call will get a better chance it is of you know sort of surprise this time because the nationals will surely they'll be somebody hired him in this in this round in and there wasn't so yeah I don't know what what the answer that I think I think we treat the image and we should with the boulders is is being people they they tend to gravitate to someone of that the have a previous relationship to that they know somebody close to so so whatever the process is it is something that allows owners would make the decisions to become more comfortable with the candidates of color professor can shop sure about the only rule about a lack of hiring of Afro American candidates for head coach in the NFL one other thing I wondered about is the media role in this and I look at a candidate's wife Matt rule from Baylor where is here quit the Rooney rule is supposed to function in a way that says Hey you have to meet with candidates but it seems like in certain cases and I read an article I think you were also promoting it on on Twitter for those who are interested Tony Dungy writing about this the Rooney rule and and this issue one of the things that they Tony Dungy was putting out there was that sometimes some of these decisions are made before an owner actually interviews a candidate right it becomes a foregone conclusion it picks up steam and the case of a mat rule where maybe the Carolina Panthers he's build in the media Matt rule as the next great culture change her and it's it's a foregone conclusion he's getting a job if it's not the Panthers it's the giants but but it's almost like that interview is conducted publicly through the media is does the media have a role in in this as well well it does and you know we saw this to the left of the big wave like that will Jon Gruden with the with the raiders well it's worked out fantastic week either but but easier for me to play that a big role in it you know I mean we we keep talking about the enemy may think about today just in terms of the commentary is is the the the canned food city chief's office pools rolling the the commentators were talking about what a great job Andy Reid was still in right next to him here's the enemy that eventually they called the police and then running the offense so even even subtly M. A. R. and is it because certainly everything of sold on the initial is they go they go bad but with that there is an example of of somebody that was not being promoted not in the way of it maybe others have been so any any image rollovers interesting to think about the last time an African American college it coach went straight to the pros I think you have to go all the way back to to Denny green back in the nineties yeah is is the is the NFL the worst of the major yeah let's say yeah hi fi obviously doesn't have as much African American participation but let's say NBA Major League Baseball NFL in terms of concerns about this where is it where you're concerned slightly to league what aid in terms of proportionality right great about the Israel math problem really in the NFL is about thirty percent African American the NBA is you know the eighty plus percent and there's a bit of a high reputation in in the NBA both in coaching in different offices including the NBA headquarters I I I truly believe that I look at this little problematic is Major League Baseball when you look at the the climb number after reckons playing with live nineteen percent now we're down to lots of very present here's one African American manager you know Robert Tilton LA and nobody curing the titles of journal manager although immediately baseball will won't because Kenny Williams and and he'll down in the Miami but you know there's so there's a leak with with absent in it in in the front office with commissioner Manfred that there's about an African American kind of a in the inner circle so so that if we can you know and we will be opening for manager now and you know our our will is dusty Baker's name realistically being put out there are there other names just be up there as well this is a you know hello unfortunate with your wife happened but here's another moment where there could be some progress in terms of hiring of people of color you mentioned what a year last of GM's in in baseball and same same problem with the NFL where there was a time not that long ago just within the last few years there were I believe there were four African American general managers and now we're down to one in your Miami.
