NFL player talent dismissed because of red hair

An anonymous red-headed sports commentator from The Columbian reports on a recent bout of gingerism from an NFL scout.

In discussing TCU product Andy Dalton’s NFL Draft potential, one scout recently told Sports Illustrated’s Peter King: “Has there ever been a red-headed quarterback in the NFL who’s really done well? It sounds idiotic, but is there any way that could be a factor? We’ve wondered.”
