The NFL received its seventh consecutive A grade for racial hiring practices and maintained a C-plus for gender hires, according to the annual report released Wednesday by The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport.The TIDES grades were the same as the league received in 2015, although the NFLs overall B grade of 83.6 percent was just slightly lower than the 84.1 percent it received last year.According to the study, the NFL received a score of 91.1 percent for racial hiring practices -- a 2 point drop from last years all-time high score of 93.1. For gender hiring practices, the NFL increased last years score by 1 percentage point to 76 percent.The gender grade continues to be of special significance this year, Dr. Richard Lapchick, the author of the study, said in a statement. Following the 2014 Ray Rice incident, the NFL has been under scrutiny for domestic abuse and mistreatment of women.While there still is a long way to go at the team level, the gender grade over the last two years with an increase of 6 percentage points and half a letter grade overall is noteworthy. The number of women in significant decision-making positions in the league office continued to expand.There are 35 women who serve at or above the vice president level in the league office, up from 31 last year and 21 in 2014. However, when it came to diversity, the score dropped from 28 percent in 2015 to 26.9 percent.I am concerned that the percentages decreased for women and people of color on NFL teams at the vice-president level and in senior administrator positions, Lapchick said. The number of general managers of color declined from seven to five. Teams need to follow the example set by the league office, as percentages for women at the team level remain significantly below those at the league level.There was no change from 2015 with six people of color currently in NFL head coaching jobs; the high was eight coaches in 2011. However, when it came to hiring practices for assistant coaches, the percentage plummeted from 37.9 percent in 2015 to 31.9 percent this season.

In its drive to fight age-fudging at the junior level the BCCI has asked all state associations to apply regulations more stringently while admitting players at the Under-19 level. Starting from the 2016-17 season, players who enter competitive cricket at the Under-19 level will need to submit at least three documents to attest their date of birth, while the age-verification programme [AVP] and the Tanner-Whitehouse 3 method [TW3] to test bone maturity will continue to be implemented at the Under-16 level.There are some cricketers who enter at the Under-19 age-group level. Such players should submit at least three documents to support their date of birth if they are to be considered to participate in the Under-19 tournaments directly without having entered the BCCI circuit at the Under-16 level, Ajay Shirke, the BCCI secretary, said in an e-mail to the state associations on July 1.The move came after the BCCI decided last month, during a working committee meeting, that players who have represented India in one Under-19 World Cup cannot take part in another edition of the tournament, even if they meet the age criteria to do so.Age-fudging has always been a controversial topic and was in the headlines last December after former India captain Rahul Dravid, in his MAK Pataudi Memorial lecture, said the scourge of overage players in junior cricket was no different to fixing and corruption.Despite its efforts, the BCCI has been largely unsuccessful in tackling age-fudging and players have faked birth certificatees to gain entry into junior cricket.dddddddddddd According to Shirke, it was the responsibility of the state associations to put an end to the problem of fake certificates. You are requested to discourage cricketers who submit birth certificates issued just a few years before, his email said. As per the Government of India rules, the birth has to be registered within one year of the birth of the child.In 2012 the BCCI decided to adopt the Tanner-Whitehouse 3 method [TW3], which determines the age of a child based on the growth of bones in the hand, especially the wrist. The margin of error in this method is six months. Prior to that the BCCI had relied on the Greulich & Pyle method [GP method] at a certified hospital, but the margin of error in this method could be up to two years. In 2012, the BCCI also introduced the age-verification programme [AVP], which is overseen by Dr Vece Paes, a former Olympic hockey player and one of the leading sports medicine specialists in the country.Shirke said that both methods will be used to ensure player eligibility at the Under-16 level. Under-16 is the formal entry point for players participating in the BCCI Junior Tournaments and they have to undergo age verification process to be eligible. The age-verification process involves bone rating - TW3 method. Only those who pass the bone rating are eligible to play in the Under-16 tournaments.
