NFL DAILY NEWS : MIKE TOMLIN COMPLAINS ABOUT THE LACK OF VARIETY

Have you ever heard of Mike Tomlin before ? He is treated as a famous American football coach who is the leader of Pittsburgh Steelers. To be known as the youngest coach in NFL ( National football league ), he has undergone a lot of difficulties and tried to overcome all of it by his own effort. Throughout his career, he achieved various types of prizes, especially becoming the winner of Super Bowl XLIII. He has a huge number of international fans who love his skills as well as his unique playing. 

In a recent interview last day, he shared his thinking to the reporter about the serious lack of diversity in the NFL tournament. Tomlin is one of the rare people who are willing to speak out the remarks towards a league. He realizes some downsides of the NFL and really wants to give some advice about the way to make it better. NFL should recruit more professional coaches as well as the talented directors who have clear plans to improve everything. 

The president of the Steelers and some other professionals also expressed their agreement to the idea of Tomlin: “ I absolutely know about the need to solve diversity issue and all Coach Tomlin has said is right.” He told. “ I think that the committee of the NFL should take it into consideration to develop our processes so that the players can have more chances to take in the league. I hope that in one day there will have a remarkable change and have more good reviews about our organization. However, it needs time to be done.” 

Tomlin is now working as the executive board of the Locksley league. This will develop a list of talented coaches such as Tomlin – the director of Ozzie Newsome, Alabama – leader of Nick Saban,…and many other well-known people. Unfortunately, due to the hard control of the dangerous pandemic, people are finding all ways to improve the situation and continuously discuss about it. COVID 19, which can make all seasons be postponed and create dramatic changes to NFL, may lead to the staffs’ cutbacks one day. 

If this matter continues to happen, no more coach will be recruited because there don’t have enough money to pay the salary for all. Many people are thinking about the solution and more measures will be taken to hire more executives as well as coaches for the NFL in the future.

There is a uniform which can cover people’s mouth and nose, which is often used in cold-weather game. I think it is also a good choice for us to use in this upcoming NFL season.

“ We are trying our best to create a safe environment for players as well as all staffs in the NFL. We hope that the product will become the most favorite one and receive many high rates from professionals. It makes players feel more assured and encourage them to make an outstanding performance.

JIM BROWN ENCOURAGES BOTH WHITE AND BLACK ATHLETES TO FIGHT FOR RACISM

Jim Brown is one of the most famous American former professional football players of all time. He had been working for National Football League for nearly ten years from 1957 to 1965. Throughout his career, he has witnessed such a lot of fights between the black and white man. Especially in sports where players from many different nations around the world get along together, the racism is rising more rapidly. For more than 50 years, He has made great efforts to encourage people to fight for the black men, particularly African Americans in United States.

Some days ago, a quick discussion between NFL civil rights activist and network was taken to share people’s point of views towards the incident in America right now. “ I think it is very amazing to connect both black and white players so that we will become much stronger to control the racism. If you often update world news, you may see a video which was very awful. A black man was killed by polices in his village in front of many onlookers. This event created a serious controversy around the world and Jim Brown thought that it’s time he did something for his nation. 

In Brown’s period, people felt very difficult to work together and teamwork is something that they didn’t even think about. There was a barrier among people that they didn’t know how to break it immediately. “ We can not remember about the things that happened hundred years ago and just concentrate on what is going on in new generation nowadays. I believe that a change in attitude towards the black will be made thanks to various campaigns like we are doing now. When a Caucasian and an African American have a good relationship with each other, a remarkable moment is made.

What should we do now to protect the black from being treated badly ? I think the most important must be the education in each nation. For example, students at school will be taught about the bad effects of racism and we need to be justice with every walk of life. In sports, white athletes or even white coaches mustn’t have a bias towards someone and don’t think that they will be more privileged than another. In NFL, there are some general rules that all players have to comply with. Respecting others is one of the most significant things in every American Football match.

In some parts of the United States, the situation is changing little by little thanks to the great efforts of many people. the US is divided into two sides and our main obligation is combing it gradually. It is necessary that we have to try our best to keep on fighting against racism until it is controlled. One day in the future, we hope that there is no discrimination among black and white people in United States.
