Tony Dungy and Mike Tomlin are two recent African American coaches that won SuperBowls. I think it’s time to retire this tripe.

No Caucasian coach has ever won the Super Bowl. At least none of the names on the list looks Armenian, Georgian, Azerbaijani, Ossetian, Abkhazian, Lezgi, or Chechen.

And, I've always found it interesting that the most famous Dallas Cowboys was an Indian. Tom Landry, IIRC, was over half American Indian. Being a little less than half Cherokee myself, that's pretty cool. Landry, however, never played racial politics and was simply for nearly thirty years, "the only coach the Dallas Cowboys have ever had."

Funny story, at the close of Jimmy Johnson's first game as Cowboys head coach, a 28-0 loss to the Saints, one of the announcers said, "And Tom Landry remains the only coach the Dallas Cowboys have ever scored a point for."

Totally agree - who gives a flying fee fee! Funny how no one asked about the owner and coach thanking the All Mighty for all their blessings...seemed to slip by un- noticed...hmmmm.
