Read a newspaper. It is what it is. The NFL is an entertainment commodity, and marketing is a huge aspect of developing public opinion. Do you ever read the many stories about lack of blacks in upper management and ownership positions in the NFL? It is a subject that is talked about often, even on NFLN.

With regards to extending his contract, it's logical to sign him now for many reasons listed in this thread. He's already proven to be a better GM than Casserly (but of course, that doesn't set the bar very high).
