Did the Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross really offer Brian Flores 100k dollars to lose games to obtain the first overall pick?
It sounds like the Dolphins truly wanted the number 1 pick and the owner was willing to pay to lose to obtain it.
Here is the full length video of Brian Flores interview with CBS This Morning.
The Giants did release a statement saying they chose the most qualified person and that Flores was in the conversation until the 11th hour.
Here is the statement about being paid directly from his lawsuit.
In January 2022, Mr. Flores, who spent three years as the Head Coach of Defendant Miami Dolphins, Ltd. (the “Dolphins” or “Miami”), found himself without a job. He was fired by the Dolphins after leading the team to its first back-to-back winning seasons since 2003. The purported basis for his termination was alleged poor collaboration. In reality, the writing had been on the wall since Mr. Flores’ first season as Head Coach of the Dolphins, when he refused his owner’s directive to “tank” for the first pick in the draft. Indeed, during the 2019 season, Miami’s owner, Stephen Ross, told Mr. Flores that he would pay him $100,000 for every loss, and the team’s General Manager, Chris Grier, told Mr. Flores that “Steve” was “mad” that Mr. Flores’ success in winning games that year was “compromising [the team’s] draft position.”
This could be a huge problem with gambling now taking place, this could be a huge problem. The NFL released a statement as well and they never once said they would look into the matter. It already sounds like they are trying to cover things up.
