Seems like Urban made the argument against hiring Doyle right there.
Meyer is not going to enjoy the nfl
I really wonder how he thought walking into a locker room full of grown ass adults and saying, “you guys are just going to have to trust me; this guy that’s been accused of bullying and discriminating against kids is like totally cool” was going to go.
I think the potential impact on the team is overplayed. As Leon Searcy said, if he stepped out of line, he would’ve gotten dropped. The real issue is don’t hire that guy to begin with
dude is just theatrical to me. Getting 3 feet away from Lawerence during his pro day. Hammering home in interviews that the Jaguars need the best facilities etc
You cant recruit free agents like you would recruit college players. There main considerations 1) Money and 2) playing with other elite talent. The size of your hot tub is a distant third at best
also nfl media is a long way from bucknuts.com reporting
I think you’re wrong and I think searcy didn’t play in a league where players (rightfully)have as much power as they do now - though not nearly as much as a league like the nba, obviously. I think if you intro that dude on day 1 of camp, more than 1 player is on the phone with his agent.
Now now guys let’s cut urban some slack, its not like he’s ever turned a blind eye on some glaring issues with an assistant just because he’s known him a long time before
It’s a giant “fuck you” to the black players in the locker room to walk him in there and that’s tone deaf as fuck, at best.
You’re right. You probably understand the modern black athlete better than Searcy.
Curious what ole Greg Mabin had to say to his teammates after the hire.
You’re naive as hell if you don’t think the players of color in the locker room had issues with an accused racists being hired.
Just seems like urban figured he could toss some bs at the media about this hire and they’d leave it alone and it would all blow over. His answer to the media just seemed very unconvincing that they even thought this hire over.
which is eerily similar to how he handled the Zach smith situation
I hope not
He is a legitimate piece of shit human. If he dies, he dies.
Leon Searcy speaks for Leon Searcy. He doesn't speak for every black player in the NFL. It may not have been a huge deal to him. That doesn't mean it wouldn't be a problem for anybody.
Pretty much everyone would have a problem with that. You'd have to be a hardcore right winger entrenched in idiotic arguments to think Doyle had any place in that locker room after hearing what former iowa players said about him
Right. It’s not like he was only accused of racist shit. He seems to be quite the POS, top-to-bottom.
You’re right. I got caught up on him acting like it’d bother nobody.
And they would have addressed it accordingly if something happened. Searcy, a black former professional athlete who is friends with a bunch of current players spoke at length on the subject. I’ll believe him over angry internet dude.
You just going to skip past him resigning and blame this on angry internet dude?
Not at all. It was a dumb fucking hire for a lot of reasons and I’m glad he’s gone. But to think that a bunch of players would’ve refused to play or something along those lines is silly.
You’re arguing things that weren’t said, then.
If the jags were worth caring about, the national media would hold Khan up in the same light as say a Dan Snyder in terms of worst owners. I could easily make the argument that he is the worst.
This. Horrible owner and a POS
*Organization. Not in college anymore.
Feel like Tony Khan should get more scrutiny. Argues with players on Twitter and supposedly an analytical guy but the jags stink, tweets whoa is me about why his soccer team he basically is in control of sucks, while also pretending he’s Vince McMahon.
did shelley meyers tweet anything about doyle or the situation?
She probably saw people wearing masks and got distracted in her anger.
urban is pretty much the only topic where I've ever seen you shitpost
it's not similar at all bc nobody knew about Zach Smith, nothing about what Urban did makes sense unless he's pulling a Joe Pa/Bowden at an earlier age.
I think there's a lot of my posts you haven't read, then.
But this shit is also really easy to make fun of.
Any update on 40 times in Duval County?
They are all two tenths lower than last year
Wow Doyle really proving his worth!
Meyer admitting knowing as far back as 2009.
did he not toss some BS at media days when confronted about Smith allegations?
Tony Khan fucking sucks, and I’m not even a Jags fan. That silver-spooned prick was born on third and thinks he hit a triple.
I, for one, and just SHOCKED that our far right Clemson poster is stanning for hiring a known racist.
I don’t even know where to begin.
- Fastest owner to 100 losses
- Coaching hires have been Gus Bradley, Doug Marrone, and now Urban Meyer
- First GM hired was Dave Caldwell who was given more leash than any GM ever
- Just completely punted a GM search and hired the interim. Kinda like he did with Marrone after firing Gus.
- Hired an out of touch Tom Coughlin and gave him complete reign. TC of course went on to destroy the roster, alienate every player, and then get disgraced by the players union for forcing players to only get medical attention from the team.
- Actively tells the fans, who have been given one season of competence in over a decade, that they don’t support the team enough for 8 games a year so we are going to keep going to London every year.
TLDR: Jags are 39-105 under Shad Khan.
If I may: Put his dipshit son who has a BS in finance in charge of the Jags analytics department.
I’d like to throw in that his complete lack of philanthropic efforts have made him a joke in the not for profit sector.
She was very highly thought of during her time with the Texans and many players were pissed when they let her go
Wtf does a pro coach need to be involved with a communications hire? He's all-in on trying to control every single aspect of the organization like it's a college program
Probably gonna ask to have final approval on all images used in official Jags media releases
Probably keep them from putting a panther on the front of our gameday books, at least.
A cynical person might think he wanted to announce the hire of a highly regarded, popular female in her profession as a way to get people off his back following the Doyle disaster.
A cynical person, but definitely not MG2 or, for that matter, yours truly.
