SP/NFL DRAFT

Asking a player if his mother is a whore? No big deal, according to NFL Interview Coach Ken Herock:

The former NFL personnel director grooms them to be ready for anything because no subject is off the table — not even questions about whether your mother is a hooker.

“I don’t feel there are any topics off-limits,” Herock said Thursday afternoon. “If anybody thinks they’re off-limits, put yourself in the eyes of an employer that’s going to hire a 21-year-old and pay him $15 million or $20 million.”

Herock finds nary a problem with the controversial question Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland posed to Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant in a pre-draft interview.

Herock actually brings up a pretty good and interesting point – if a kid is essentially interviewing for a job and is set to make millions, his employer should be able to ask pretty much anything. Of course, he should have a reason for asking, not just feeling the kid out. All hell would break loose otherwise.

“Hey, Colt McCoy, before we talk about blitzes, I want to ask you something. Would you rather blow four guys in front of your father or eat a log of Prince Fielder’s shit every day for ten years? You have to answer and you can’t say neither or you’d kill youself. Go.”

Except federal law and the EEOC say otherwise. Interviewing a CEO for a company who is going to make 10x what Bryant makes and you still can’t ask.

@ Natalie

Good point. But how many potential CEOs had fathers that were pimps and whose mothers were addicted to hard drugs and worked for their dads?
