Is the IQ test used by the National Football League (NFL)–to gauge NFL draftees’ intelligence–racist? A Muslim left-wing lawyer thinks so. And he, sadly, has a lotta pull with the league and has gotten NFL teams to use his dumbed downed test.
If you’re a football fan, then you know that tonight is the start of the 2013 National Football League (NFL) draft, or as I like to call it, “Beauty Pageant for America’s Next Top Bankrupt Multi-BabyDaddy Crack Dealer.” And whether or not you’re a football–or even a sports fan at all, you may have heard of the Wonderlic test, which is given to prospective NFL draft picks to test their intelligence (or, rather, lack thereof). I call it the NFL’s Idiocy Litmus Test. The Wonderlic test is a sort of IQ test for morons, in which the questions are so easy, you really, really have to be an imbecile not to score well. And, yet, the NFL and its draft are so full of such utter dummies that many score very low. I mean these future millionaire/current multi-babydaddies can’t even count how many kids they’ve fathered or how many chicks they’ve fathered them with, so it’s no surprise. Questions on the Wonderlic are something like this: If your first name is David, what’s your first name? Or, if your first name is David, what letter does your first name begin with? Okay, so they’re not that easy, but pretty close. Here’s a real “challenging” Wonderlic question I’ve posted on this site in the past:
Which number in the following group of numbers represents the smallest amount?: 7, .8, 31, .33, or 2.
Wow, you gotta be a rocket surgeon to answer that . . . or is that, a brain scientist? And, yet, the NFL is chock full of geniuses who get questions like that wrong (and are bankrupt with 11 illegit kids by 20 women to support, three years later–yes, I know you can’t have 11 kids with 20 women, but shhhhh!, don’t spoil their pride in big numbers).
Now, a far-left Iranian Muslim lawyer, Cyrus Mehri, has convinced many NFL teams that the test is too hard and too “raaaaciiiiist!” So he developed a new test that has nothing to do with intelligence. Yup, a typical liberal who believes that Blacks are dummies, so we need to get rid of any standardized tests for IQ:
There’s a new test in town that promises to improve the focus of the NFL microscope on draft prospects, while possibly giving more players at fair chance a sound evaluation [DS: sic]. But don’t think the NFL’s Player Assessment Tool (PAT) will predict whether a first-round D-tackle will wind up wrecking the buffet during a brawl at the Midnight Lounge. The PAT is not designed for that.
Yet the customized test, which will be administered to prospects at the NFL’s scouting combine this week in Indianapolis, is supposed to provide teams with an idea of whether a player will get along with teammates, make it to meetings on time and put in the effort to take his skills from good to great. Just as significantly, the PAT will provide an indication of how the player will best pick up the playbook — whether it’s with a visual aid, in writing, or with an on-the-field demonstration (sans yelling, please).
At least that’s the hope. If this tool proves to be as viable as promised, it has been a long time coming as an added evaluation component in the NFL draft process. “These guys are making these multi-million dollar decisions, and in some regards it’s like they are walking into a dark room with a flashlight,” Cyrus Mehri, the attorney who proposed the PAT idea to the NFL, told USA TODAY Sports. . . . More than two years ago, Mehri began collaborating with an industrial psychology expert, Henry Goldstein, a professor at Baruch College, City University of New York, to develop a test for NFL players.
For decades, prospects at the combine have taken the Wonderlic exam to measure aptitude, but there has long been a sentiment by many in the league that the IQ test was an irrelevant measure for evaluating football players. As with other forms of standardized testing, some critics have contended there is a bias against test-takers from lower socio-economic backgrounds. . . .
“This kind of levels the playing field from a socio-economic point of view,” Mehri contends. “A lot of guys may be very intelligent, but are not as book-smart as others. Someone may not be the best reader, but they can still be very smart in picking up things.”
Mehri was behind the NFL’s “Rooney Rule,” the silly affirmative action quota pursuant to which the NFL requires its teams to interview at least one Black candidate for every head coaching position or be fined several hundred thousand dollars. The rule is a joke because it forces NFL teams who already have a chosen head coaching candidate to fly in a Black guy they likely have no intention of hiring, just so they can go through the motions and avoid the fine. It does the Black candidate no good, because he’s being used and teased. It’s a typical empty sop to liberalism and pretense at being “down with the struggle” of the race merchants. And, yes, there is no White Rooney Rule for playing positions on the NFL field, where in excess of 70% of positions are filled by Blacks. Nor is there a White Rooney Rule for Tyler Perry studios. Just sayin’.
Cyrus Mehri is a former associate of the late race-baiter and O.J. Simpson lawyer, Johnny Cochran. He has also made hundreds of millions of dollars in shakedown lawsuits against Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Company, and other big corporations alleging “raaacism.” Hey, it’s halal money, right? The Cyrus Mehri Global Pluralism Fellowship he sponsors at Hartwick College gave out money for the promotion of Islam and Islamic “fashion” for women. Guys, I’ll bet you can’t wait ’til he extends “Islamic fashion for women” to the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, the Cincinnati Ben-Gals, and the Buffalo Jills.
For 2009-10, Hira Siddiqui ’10 explored Misconceptions of Islam through a roundtable discussion about Islam; a guest lecturer on Islamic law, the Qur’an, and roles of women in Islam; and a cultural fashion show with a discussion of dress codes in different countries.
So, when the new NFL season begins in the fall, don’t be surprised if you see even dumber players than the already major morons you see in pro football right now.
And you can thank Cyrus Mehri for that. He’s laughing at you, the NFL, and Black people (who he thinks are all stupid–as most liberals and affirmative action supporters think) . . . all the way to the bank.
