As you often do, you always advocate taking the rational, studied approach to one of these controversies, but you use hyperbole and sarcasm that reveals your rather strong biases. Quite sure very few, if any, people have accused Ferentz of having a "closest hatred" of blacks. He is a hard-assed football coach who has been successful. That doesn't preclude him not understanding black players or favoring white ones in ways that that can be called "racist."Ferentz for all of his many failings does not appear to be an idiot. He knows he has a high transfer rate. To buy into this story or narrative being pushed by Howe and ESPN one has to believe that Ferentz’s closet hatred of blacks is so strong it outweighs his desire to field a good team or promote a strong team culture. That’s a big ask, IMO. Maybe? It seems more likely he has a very tough standard and some have to travel further to meet it than others. Some just aren’t going to make it.
