Frankly I fear we are stuck with BT due to the impact of Rooney's Rule, (or whatever it's called these days).
Sorry strap, but that comes across as borderline racist there. Plus there is no Rooney rule in English football.
Oh please! Best man/woman (happy?) for the job, NOT quotas based on race, religion, gender, gender orientation, physically disability, mentally disability, (have I missed any "minority" - if so apologies for offence caused), etc etc.
Apologies if FACTS don't suit your agenda.
Non-whites under represented in non-playing activities at clubs, FACT, and over-represented on the playing side, FACT. Quite who in power determines the "correct" level of "representation" is never disclosed of course. Presumably it is a member of the so-called "injured minority"?
As more and more non-whites retire and enter the market-place for non-playing activities, their numbers WILL increase. It is just a matter of time. Quotas will NOT not change the situation one iota, well not for the better anyway.
Based on personal experience, I have a huge issue with quotas based on anything other than skill-sets. It has destroyed one company I worked for in the Middle East in the past so I have a vague clue of what I am talking about. Anyway that is my issue. If you read that as racist that is your issue.
