Marty Hurney is NOT the new Washington GM


Recommended Posts

Here's some irony for ya...

Martin Mayhew was one of the three sham Rooney Rule interviews that  Jerry Richardson used to "comply" with the rule before hiring Marty.

Now, per LaCanfora, one of the reasons listed for giving Mayhew the GM position instead of Marty is that the new rules give the Redskins a 3rd round pick for making him the GM rather than Marty.

Brilliant. The dude finally gets his shot and now he finds out it's for a comp pic and working under Marty fuging Hurney.

I thought the team who had him last got the pick not the hiring team.

I've seen it both ways so I'm honestly not sure.

Seems kinda ass backwards not to give the incentive to the team that does the hiring honestly, but it's the NFL so...

The one thing I do know is that the 49ers could have blocked Washington from interviewing Mayhew if the job didn't involvr roster control.

LMAO, they got a whif of the near 100% fan outrage and backed out quick. 

No idea if they paid attention to that, but I can tell you since this was announced, fan reaction has...changed.

Gotta say between this and Dan Campbell's Hulk Hogan inspired press conference, this has been a pretty comical day for NFL news.

(outside of Ted Thompson's passing, of course)

La Canfora says it's the 49ers who get the comp pick with Mayhew  getting the GM job, which is consistent with how I understood the incentive works. It's supposed to encourage teams to develop minority talent. 

It may be that the 49ers threatened to block it, which they could do if Mayhew wasn't getting the GM title, to ensure he'd get hired as GM and they'd get the comp pick.

Gotcha. Like I said that seems kinda backwards to me but hey...

Still find it pretty ironic that Mayhew ended up with the job Marty wanted. There's a certain level of poetic justice there.
