We don't really do public service here on Balls.ie, but yesterday, we published a story of genuine value - retired footballer Andy Cole spoke about the roadblocks that stop retired black footballers from becoming managers. Cole spoke about the need for a Rooney Rule in football. It's not groundbreaking news in itself, but this is the kind of discussion that needs to be happening in football and we're pleased if it makes one or two people think.

Would you like a grainy camera phone photo as proof? Happy to be of some service.
