Nolan Nawrocki at it again.

Talked with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan on SiriuxXM NFL Radio, Pat seems to think Nolan is being run around by a team hoping to torpedo Geno's stock.

That would actually make a lot of sense.

Lord knows team's go into "poker face" mode this time of year. Disinformation is everywhere.

That'd point out a pitfall of getting info from someone with a vested interest.

Good to see Mr Scot hasn't lost his love for teh Narwookie.

The entire argument of, "I found this one time where he said bad stuff about a white QB therefore he can't be guilty of racial stereotyping and preconceived notions" Is about as compelling as the "I had that one black friend back in the day, therefore I cannot be racist" argument.

The problem that Mr Scot and so many miss is that too many times a black QB has to prove they are not a negative while white QBs have to prove that they are a negative or else it defaults into predictable stereotypes.

It is known as "default assumptions" and it has been studied extensively.

There is an old riddle about a man that is driving his son to a baseball game, on the way they get in a major car accident and the father is killed and the boy is seriously injured. The son gets to the hospital and when they rush him into surgery the doctor says "I can't operate on this boy. He is my son." How is that possible?

For many years, this simple riddle has fooled people. Why? Because of default assumptions.

It doesn't mean that Narwocki is a bad person or is getting a KKK newsletter. Just means that he like so many other people is susceptible to racial stereotyping and that is the actual issue.

Good to see you're still able to look only at a few examples that can fit your preconceived notions while ignoring all the numerous others that don't :rolleyes:

Given that there are quite a bit more African Americans in the NFL draft, and given that he's done this for years. Shouldnt it be likley that we shouldve found scores of subtle racist profiles from him? Granted, I havent scoured his books, but it seems that only a couple of profiles are being used as evidence, out of hundreds. That doesnt seem like a strong corelation.

I won't argue that Nawrocki hasnt had questionable analysis ( personally I dont see how a fake smile is relevant to a scouting report), but Ive always felt (to paraphrase a quote) that one shouldnt attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by inepitude.
