‘I don’t see racism at all in the NFL’



'I don't see racism at all in the NFL'

One NFL head coach said he was “shocked, sad and angry” about the murder of George Floyd, adding that the league had no racism issues.

“[Floyd’s death] is a social problem that we all need to solve, “Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio told reporters Tuesday, also saying that discrimination and racism were not widespread in the NFL.

“I think our problems in the NFL along those lines are minimal,” said Fangio, who has been ranked in the NFL coaching since 1986, except for 2010 when he was Stanford’s defense coordinator. “We are a meritocracy league, you get what you get, you get what you get. I don’t see racism in the NFL at all, I don’t see discrimination in the NFL. “

The comments will likely cause disagreement in several places. Many NFL critics on race matters say the league insulted Colin Kaepernick because of his protest against police brutality in which he knelt during the national anthem. In addition, a few days ago, Houston Texas wide receiver Kenny Stills tore Roger Goodell’s statement about Floyd’s death, tweeting “Save the bulls – t.”

Floyd, 46, died on May 25 in Minneapolis after police officer Derek Chauvin, 44, pressed his knee to Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes after Floyd allegedly spent fake $ 20 bills. Chauvin had been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree murder .

Before Fangio’s comments about the NFL, he opened a call with reporters saying Floyd’s death was a terrible act that should never have happened.

“I was shocked, sad and angry when I saw what the police did to George Floyd who was handcuffed in his stomach which caused his death,” Fangio said. “He must be punished fully from the criminal law charged with him in addition to being charged with treason for failing to uphold the badge and uniform entrusted to him … This is a social problem that we must follow together. justify.”

Fangio, who is, according to ESPN, has supported Rooney’s rules for more differences in NFL coaching rankings in the past, telling reporters that he encouraged his players to protest. He also praised Justin Simmons ‘safety efforts on his last day in Simmons’ hometown in Stuart, Fla.

“I think it’s great, Justin is a great person, a great leader, his head is messed up, he sees problems and how they have to be solved,” Fangio said. “He is looking for a solution, and it’s easy for everyone to identify a problem … we need to find a solution and I think Justin is one of those people who will find a solution.”

Broncos CEO Joe Ellis held a virtual meeting with the players about how the team can unite for several social justice initiatives. Fangio said he would talk to the players about the same topic on Thursday.

Earlier, Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, one of several black coaches in the NFL, said he was angry with Floyd’s death and that everyone, including himself, had to do better.

“How do we influence that type of change? Where is the accountability for that kind of thing [expletive]? “Chargers coach said inside interview with the Los Angeles Times. “That’s where I am now. I’m angry, I’m upset and I don’t want to just make a pretty statement.

“I haven’t done anything to make this a better place for my child,” said 51-year-old Lynn. “I remember talking to him when he was 16 about handling police, and then at 30, I called him and just talked to him again because I was very scared. I wanted to do something, but to be honest with you, I don’t know What is that. “

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
