LOS ANGELES — The NFL announced quickly that the lawsuit filed last week by former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores — which alleges widespread racial discrimination in the league’s hiring practices and seeks class-action status — is without merit.

Then only four days later, commissioner Roger Goodell revealed in a memo sent to owners that the league understands the concerns expressed by Flores and others, and it will initiate a comprehensive review of its entire approach to diversity, equity and inclusion.

And with that, the tap dance began.

As the NFL prepares this week for Super Bowl LVI on Sunday at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, Flores’ lawsuit has cast another shadow over professional sports’ most successful league. Now, Goodell, as he has done many times before, will attempt to convince NFL observers that they will do everything they can to fix the problem.

During the week leading up to the Super Bowl, Goodell conducts a state of the NFL news conference in the host city. The one here Wednesday figures to be a doozy.

Goodell is expected to field many questions about Flores’ lawsuit, which has put the league on the defensive during the week of its signature event. Read more.
