Gruden is a piece of sh*t but this is clearly a co-ordinated attack. The fact that he was so comfortable putting those words on record probably speaks to the culture in league circles. I have no doubt

Too bad he didn't just sexually assault 50 women woulda been back in the league in no time.

Yeah they knew exactly what they were doing. Goodell doesn't care about him saying racist, homophobic stuff. He cares he called him a f*ggot pussy - which he is though. They were going to ke

Can we bring Gruden as an assistant consultant that in reality would replace Lafleur?

FOR THE WIN!

Gruden hasn’t been that great this time around.

I swear that something like this involving Gruden making racially charged comments about Smith or someone else on the admin side of things came out 10 years ago and was just glanced over at the time.

This will be locked, but it was over for him the second he called the commissioner - correctly so - a pussy. 

The NFL was going to keep releasing things until it was untenable for him. No shot supreme chancellor... er uhh Commissioner Goodell was letting that slide

Just said in ESPN: Pretty much saying NFL did a hit job by releasing more emails to pressure Mark Davis to fire Gruden. League was upset he was allowed to coach Sunday. Thought action should have been taken much earlier by Davis
 

seems this was a revenge hit for what he said about the nfl as an ESPN EMPLOYEE that was leaked via the Discovery of the WFT investigation. 
 

Says very unlikely that Gruden willfully walks away from $60M left in his contract.

What I’m curious about is the $ left in his contract of 10years. 
 

Seems he was forced to resign. Schefter says league wanted Davis to fire him and but he didn’t. He can’t fire him for something he said in confidence in an email when employed elsewhere 10 years ago. I highly doubt Gruden simply resigns and forfeits the remaining $60M (especially in this economy, hey-yo!) 

Does Gruden get a parachute or does he sue?

If he resigned then he can't really sue. I assume he took a pretty good deal to walk away quietly.

The lede is getting buried in all this. The Redskins were essentially pimping out their cheerleaders. Gruden gets fired for being an idiot good old boy. But Snyder still owns a team? 

Goodell is employed by the owners, not the coaches.  So of course Snyder still owns a team.  It would take much, much more than what Gruden did (and the current WFT scandal isn't enough either) to force a sale of the WFT.

  • 92ShaunEllis92 changed the title to Adam Schefter says NFL was behind Gruden-gate

Shouldn’t there be more outrage that the commissioner is cited as “pressuring” Jeff Fisher to draft a certain player? Isn’t that meddling by the league in a team’s affairs? Other owners should be upset about that, no?

of all those emails to be released, it’s very hard to believe Gruden is the only person to take a hit from this PR disaster.

Well if they are going to boot people for some of the stuff he  has said, especially homophobic then they better be ready to turf a lot of other guys and players.

We have come a long ways in a short time and what was once frowned on is now a hanging offense

And it should be a hanging offense for Gruden.  You can't talk that way when you're an NFL coach and keep your job.

Gruden's an idiot for making those comments on an NFL email server.  

Dumbass.

 

Absolutely.   That’s is dumb 
 

But, was he joking?  I haven’t read them and won’t waste my time.  I’m just curious as to whether he was authenticity telling jokes. Because I do think, that’s very different and doesn’t have to be bigoted.  Also why, I’m so glad Chappelle is doubling down on his comments and not letting the mob control him.  First person I can recall with the balls to do so

 I don't think he was joking. This is just the way he talks when he's off camera.

You can't do that if you're an NFL coach.

He's a dumbass.
