· Vic Fangio pulls back on his stance that racism is not in the NFL

o In a statement on June 2nd, Fangio said, “I think our problems in the NFL along those lines are minimal. We're a league of meritocracy. You earn what you get, you get what you earn. I don't see racism at all in the NFL, I don't see discrimination in the NFL. We all live together, joined as one, for one common goal, and we all intermingle and mix tremendously. If society reflected an NFL team, we'd all be great."

o According to ESPN, Fangio later pulled back on his stance by correcting himself and saying that his statement was ignorant and just because he hadn’t experience racism firsthand doesn’t mean it isn’t prevalent in the NFL
