One player was questioned about the colors of chocolate, snow, and butter. Yes, you read that correctly.
“I think it was the Cardinals coach who started off by asking me, “What color is chocolate?” “Brown.” And then he was like, “What color is melted chocolate,” and I think I said dark brown, and he said, “No, don’t overthink it.’” So I said brown. Then he said, “What color is butter?” then, “What color is melted butter?” “Yellow.” “What color is snow?” “White.” “What color is melted snow?” I said, “White.” And then he said, “Nope, melted snow is clear, so what does that make snow?” I was like, “Clear,” he said, “Yep,” and that was kind of the icebreaker.”
This last question seems more irritating than anything. But I’m sure you understand what I’m saying about these questions and their irrelevance. They have none. The NFL finally instituted a punishment for disrespectful, inappropriate, or unprofessional conduct during these pre-draft interviews.
Franchises will be hit with a minimum $150,000 fine if it is determined that any team representative has conducted themselves in such a manner. In addition to a fine, teams will also forfeit a draft pick between the first and fourth rounds.
This rule was implemented this year, so we’ll see what stories come out over time after this draft is in the books. Hopefully, this is enough to stop some of the league’s front office personnel from being idiots and asking questions that don’t need to be discussed. While this may clean up the process somewhat, there’s always a jackass out there just waiting to buck the system.
