    When asked about his mentor Jon Gruden ( who he coached under for 4 years ) his response was he is saddened!!

    Interesting choice of words from a man none for his gift of gab!!!

    He just needs time to absorb the negativity, then he’ll have something to say.

    What did you expect him to say? He needs to stay out of that mess that Gruden got himself into. That's the smart move.

    What else would he say? People are being ripped for things they said 3,8,10 years ago. What do you think would happen to someone who said something “wrong” in real time? The legion of the perpetually butt-hurt would come after him with torches and pitchforks

    Why the hell did these emails take so long to surface? The man had a plush job for years with ESPN and was a good announcer, before the 2nd Raiders gig.

    Ive heard a lot of things from a lot of people that were closely related to him……

    I agree he shouldn’t get involved much with this mess but I was just surprised Tomlin didn’t use his “Tomlinism’s “ when asked about it. He spent 4 yrs working closely with him.

    Kinda disappointed actually, was looking forward to hearing him speak on it in his unique way.

    Well, you see, it’s like this!!!!!

    NFL investigates WFT, goes thru 650K Emails and Goodell is told what Jon said about him, Roger got all up in his feelings and told Mark Davis, He didn’t fire Jon so he gave him more emails to read and when Mark still didn’t fire him and even let him coach on Sunday Ole Roger got his panties in a serious Wad so he leaked out a bunch of them to the Times and Boom!!!!!! Jon is out and Roger feels a little better about himself!!!!

    Like I said in the other Gruden thread. What's ole Rog going to do about his half time show that has many of the artists who us racism, sexuality, gang banging and constantly use the N word in all of their lyrics. Somehow, That's ok? Where do we draw the line?

    Gruden said mean words, shamed and forced to resign. Deshaun credibly accused by 24 women of sexual assault, making bank every week.

    Sounds about right.

    It all part of a ploy to shame white people and get repercussion payments in the long run. BLM, CRT is all part of the plan. Could you imagine Ben being accused by 24 different women and still be allowed on a team? They would have thrown the book at him all off season.

    What Gruden did was stupid but why wait 11 years to bring this all up? It's pure timing is mostly the case here.

    Gooddell has been ruining this sport since the minute he took over as commissioner. Gary Bettman is terrible but Roger is 10 X worse.

    Why?! Answers: Timing and money. Timing because of how poorly both Mark Davis and the NFL have handled this and money due to the amount of attention the league is now receiving.



    All the more reason I am still awaiting the final email details for the Washington Football Team. People thought that the Jon Gruden saga was going to be interesting?! Daniel Synder states "hold my beer" ..... literally!!

    Goodell wanted WFT's e-mails, 650,000 of them, gone through as part of the NFL's investigation of WFT's negative behavior toward woman employed by them. Apparently, these e-mails were those generated while Bruce Allen, who has a history with Gruden, was GM.

    Sad, but true. However, he makes boat loads of cash for the owners, so his job is safe. For now.
