As New York Giants owner John Mara and new general manager Joe Schoen tried to defend their hiring process against allegations made by former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, new Giants head coach Brian Daboll continued to build his coaching staff. In the process, Daboll made Big Blue history.
Tuesday afternoon, Brian Flores filed a class action lawsuit in the Southern District of New York, that includes the New York Giants, the NFL and all 32 teams. It even includes allegations that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offered Flores $100,000 PER LOSS! The bombshell lawsuit claims that the Giants interviewed Brian Flores for their head coaching position, even though they had already decided to go with Brian Daboll. The class-action suit claims that Flores' interview with Big Blue was a “sham.”
It was a wild weekend of Divisional NFL Playoffs. We each game being decided by one score, you never know what could have made the difference in one game from the next. However, New York Giants fans can relish in the possibility that one of their own former heroes may have helped knock Aaron Rodgers out of the playoffs.
