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.”
