    Is there a bias against redheads in football?
    Stereotypes still pervasive in sports
    January 22, 2011|By Mike Bianchi, SPORTS COMMENTARYBruce Miller has been victimized by bias throughout his life.

    He has heard taunts and teasing from people who make fun of his color.
    He has had to overcome a pigmentation prejudice.

    "I think there is a bias toward redheads in football," says Miller, the UCF star who played in Saturday's East-West Shrine Game at the Citrus Bowl.

    I wonder what color hair zrinkill has? :D

    Further proof the scouting community is filled with a lot of superstitions and non-logic.

    Miller is the outside LB compliment to Casey Matthews. Very successful college guys that I think will be overmatched physically at the Pro Level.

    Plenty of pictures of me on this site.

    Real question is what scouts think about playing Golf.

    And I am talking about real scouts ..... not a guy in his mom's basement.

    Yeah really, :laugh2: I was smart years ago though, we won a contest to beuna vista something, and guy asked us if you liked golf, my dad and i said No, right quick

    some friends that went with us, the dad was a big time golfer, but he didnt volunteer any info, but his son did, said yeah, we love it, the agent (they were trying to see you alot on the land), and they had to walk the whole golf course that afternoon without a golf buggy, while i was out swimming, riding horses, etc... :)

    but i play a mean game of putt putt golf, does that count?

    You should have been at home practicing your craft instead of wasting time at beuna vista something.

    You really should take your job more seriously and become a leader among car inspectors.
