Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 11, 2021

Jon Gruden is out as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, a source confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Monday. Raiders owner Mark Davis arrived at the team's facility earlier Monday evening and went to find Gruden, a source told Schefter. The two men met, and Gruden no longer will be the Raiders' head coach, the source said. NFL Network was first to report Gruden's departure from the team. The news comes in the wake of a New York Times report that Gruden used misogynistic and anti-gay language in numerous emails during a seven-year period.

Well this was not on my wheel of 2021. Maybe now the Raiders can dump Derek Carr and get to the business of just winning, baby.

Also gutsy move by Mark (maybe, maybe not). Maybe he's just tired of losing.

Wow, something said 7 years ago.

Liberals dont care. They just smell blood. Not that someone can change.

Why does it matter when he said it? And the emails extend back to 2018.

He offended just about everyone he encounters every day in work. Why would they want to keep him? LOL

You wouldn't sound quite as dumb if you'd actually read the article before commenting.
Wait....strike that. You'd still sound like the ignorant, anti-American racist that you are.

Michael Vick has been out of the league since 2016.

The Gruden emails weren't all old. He wrote them over a seven-year period.

The premise that he would talk that way for so long but doesn't talk that way any more is pretty far-fetched.

What the????

Wow I thought I heard he was still playing last year.

....it seems I'm now old.

The league has been working on improving their record on these kind of attitudes, and he was going to go no matter what.

Too bad, as he has done a decent job with the team. And he has free speech rights like anyone else. But the team and the league also have the right to fire him or demand his resignation.

"Liberals dont care. They just smell blood. Not that someone can change."

It's a business decision, Boaz.
I strongly encourage you to send racist emails and see what happens to your career.

What is wild is that none of this would have been discovered if WFT wasn't being investigated for their management issues.

I'm that way with hockey. My brain won't let go of the idea that some long-gone players are still playing.

Liberals don't run the NFL or NFL teams. If we did Colin Kaepernick wouldn't have been drummed out of the league at age 29.

Sorry , can't support ableague that hates people like me. I'm not a gay man but homophobia is still a real problem for me.

1.) so long as winning excludes homophobic remarks
2.) so long as winning excludes racist remarks
3.) so long as winning excludes send topless cheerleader photos for a team with which you are not affiliated in any way
4.) so long as winning excludes any comments regarding female referees
5.) so long as winning excludes comments disparaging the decrease in allowable on field contact

....but other than that, "Just winning, baby!"

This is how I feel when trying to keep track of baseball players:

Buster poser is still a rookie star from FSU, Evan Longoria and David Price are still on the Rays, etc.

For what it's worth (not much), the raiders have the only openly gay NFL player on their roster - Carl nassib

In the long run, the NFL will be better off for ejecting Gruden.

I tell people all the time to never put anything in an email that you would not dragged into the light of day. Period.

The interwebs never forgets. Ever.

22 wins and 31 losses is "a decent job"?? Oh, right, you're a Cowboys fan.

So, Colin Kaepernick was right. Gruden's emails, among other evidence, is almost certainly why the league settled with him for an undisclosed amount.

"The NFL's settlement with Kaepernick and former 49ers safety Eric Reid prevents the collusion grievances and the gathered evidence from ever being heard." www.nbcsports.com

I think we are beginning to hear some of that evidence.

Look at them this year, and their future prospects... you are counting rebuilding years as equal to current ones.

He dumped 2 of the best players they ever had (Mack and Cooper). That's not rebuilding, that's hubris.

650,000 emails were under an investigation of the Washington Football Team. The only offensive ones that acted on were Gruden's? It's an owners league. Mark Davis of the Raiders has tax problems. He can't afford Gruden anymore.

If it had just been on email from ten years ago a lot of us would have his back. But it's not. It is a long ongoing pattern of offensive statements about a variety of groups. Too much. We don't need him around.

NRL
NRR
WBK

Another case in point: the emails revealed that Gruden talked trash about buccaneers ownership. The owners announced yesterday that they are removing Gruden from the Bucs ring of honor. Don't mess with ownership.

How many emails were analyzed as part of the Washington investigation? 650,000?

Could Gruden be the tip of the iceberg?

I bet a lot of coaches are more than a little nervous right now.

Yeah, NFL owners are "liberals".

That's funny.

Hunter Biden uses the n word multiple times and nothing happens; in fact, the silence from the Liberal outlets was deafening. The lyrics in the songs by multiple halftime singers in the Super Bowl not only are extremely racist but are misogynistic in a very significant way but it gets ignored too.

The hypocrocodile tears coming from the Left are the real cause of rising sea levels.

Is there going to be an investigation into how the bankruptcy-prone orange dotard ran the USFL into the ground like it was one of his Atlantic City casinos?
