    Ireland and Nepotism

    Shows you how an incompetent baffoon can become the GM of our football team.
    From the very top of the NFL, the league's owners, to the absolute bottom, the laundry room and ball boys, the NFL is about who you know.
    Not what you know.
    Jeff Ireland, the Dolphins' general manager, served as a ball boy with the Chicago Bears as a child. He became a scout because his grandfather was an NFL executive.
    He landed his present position because Bill Parcells was impressed with him in Dallas, and brought him to Miami.
    Ireland retained his position because former Kansas City Chiefs executive Carl Peterson, who is buddies with Dolphins owner Steve Ross, once hired him, and subsequently endorsed him to Ross.

    "Who you know", it's a fact of life in just about every profession.

    Organizations and people hiring others they know, feel comfortable with and feel they are good at the job. Shocking!

    60 names there and we ended up with the two biggest fruitcakes of them all, typical.

    LOL at Herm Edwards not having anyone in his coaching tree.

    Sam Wyche's coaching tree is like a family tree of someone from Kentucky...it does not fork (advanced apologies if you or someone you know is from Kentucky...)
