A black owner of an NFL team fires a white coach and replaces him with a black coach. The Dispatch headlines "Fading To Darkness" on a black page with white print. I think this may have been a bit inappropriate in presentation. Yes, the Vikings may have needed a coaching change. But, come on guys, is this really the way you think the story should have been set up?

Editor's note: Zygi Wilf, owner of the Minnesota Vikings, is not black.
