Fritz Pollard Alliance Meeting

I just read your column in the USA today (Key for minority hires? Time with owners) traveling back from the Senior Bowl. I attended the Fritz Pollard meeting and I sat in the front row to the right. It was an explosive meeting and it is one that won’t be forgotten any time soon. It was actually discussed all week by a lot of African-American scouts. I’ll be at the next one in Indianapolis.

All I Need for NFL News

I had been hoping for a Mike Jones pod for some time. Mike is football savvy, well liked and respected around the league, and can give his opinion thoughtfully. This quick trip around the NFL each week is just what I wanted. Plus dude’s radio voice is smooth as hell.
