The NFL said the investigation found that Dolphin “did not intentionally lose games during the 2019 season.”

The owner or CEO must understand the weight that his words carry, and the risks that comment is taken seriously and acted upon, even if that is not the intent or anticipation.

“Even if presented in jest and not intended to be taken seriously, comments that a draft position is more important than winning can be misunderstood and carry with it a potential unnecessary risk to the integrity of the game.” Comments made by Mr. Ross It did not affect Coach Flores’ commitment to winning and the Dolphins competed to win every game.

“The independent investigation has cleared our organization of any issues relating to tanks and all of Brian Flores.”[’s] “Other allegations,” Ross said in the statement. “As I have said all along, these allegations were false, malicious and defamatory, and this case has now been terminated. Regarding manipulation, I am strongly against conclusions and punishment. However, I will accept the result because the most important thing is that there are no distractions for our team as we start an exciting and winning season. I won’t let anything stand in the way of that.”
