[quote] Jim Rooney, a last name as synonymous with football as Vince Lombardi or John Madden, was joined by Jeremi Duru, a professor of law at American University’s Washington College of Law, to discuss the NFL’s inception and its transformation into the league that has overtaken our Sundays, Mondays and even Thursdays each fall. Their focus was on the league’s policies on diversity, the Rooney Rule and how the rule’s legacy could be in jeopardy.

“In thinking about how we move forward, we have to look at elements of the NFL that have had consistent success,” Duru said.
