    I dont believe anything at this point. Im just trying to figure out how he could negotiate for a coach when he has not fired the one he has. With the Ronney rule he has to actually have a process and cant just say well im outbidding for a guy esp when he still has a guy

    Is it just monetary?

    The Lions broke it in 2003 when they hired Mariucci and were fined a couple hundred thousand dollars. Thats the only penalty I know about thats come from it

    Harbaugh playing in the NFL might make a huge difference though. He also doesn't appear to be a ******** but I could be wrong

    I don't care about the Rooney Rule. It's racist and it's no longer helpful.

    Wow! Ross, Ireland and Carl Peterson are on their way to talk to Harbaugh. Apparently Ross is ready to make Harbaugh the highest paid coach in the NFL.

    Still though, at the same time it is very odd that Sparano still has Job.

    @JasonLaCanfora Jason La Canfora
    Hearing Dolphins offered Gurden $7M/ year and it was turned down - not that offer could be coming to Harbaugh. 49ers have been in $SM range

    He messed up with the Niners offer $$

    @JasonLaCanfora Jason La Canfora
    Dolphins officials meeting with Harbaugh on West Coast. More ahead on NFL.com (and Gruden not Gurden, sorry, working quickly)

    What would be the penalty for a Rooney Rule violation? Ross could be willing to say screw he rule and take he punishment.

    **** the league. Goodell should be smart enough to know most of these Rooney Rule interviews are token interviews. It's insulting to the candidates that take part in them.

    Harbuagh turning down 5.2 million? Gruden turning down 7 million? These coaches need to wake up and realize they shouldn't be paid higher than 90% of the players.

    Whatever the outcome, Props to Ross. He may not know much about owning an NFL team, but the guy knows how to try to buy what he wants.

    Its insulting its necessary but the sad fact before the rule there was like 2 black coaches in the league. Without the rule it would be just like college football. Where there are lucky to be 5 out of 117 in a given year
