    coaches and front office guys are generally held to a higher standard. My guess is cuz them being a distraction or losing the players respect is much more impactful than an individual player. That said the NFL pretending like it has any kind of moral compass is comical considering they employ tons of violent and sexual offenders.

    You went out of context with non-sense. Some shitty coach talking wild in emails and getting fired for it does little to reveal the power inequities you post about.

    $$ = Power. Lobby access to politicians comes from where??? $$$

    That is the sound of a lot of people in the NFL messing their underwear right now.

    What I have been saying the whole time. Gruden is collateral damage from The Washington Football team scandal. There was a culture there that men in power took advantage of women in the organization. The problem is this will backfire for the NFL. It will get out, because there is 15 women involved in a lawsuit against them. So unless the Redskins settle and make the women sign an non disclosure, their attorney will starting leaking shit. The WFT biggest problem is getting all 15 women to agree to a non disclosure for their cash.

    Gruden should buy an NFL franchise so he run it how he wants. This isn't hard.

    Yea it would be cheaper to buy those girls out of court l. Public image is worth mode .. that is why usually a company gets hacked they pay the hackers and don’t report it .

    What a shitty and predictable take. How many rushing yards did Gruden have before the Raiders released him?
    IF Kapernick was Tom Brady, NFL teams would be lining up to put up with his bullshit.
    Coaches are replaceable, and coaches that have lost his locker room never last long.

    Are you sure that Gruden lost his locker room because of something he said in an email 10 years ago?

    Absolutely!

    When my son was old enough to get online with a social media presence, I told him "Son, what you do on the internet is FOREVER. Watch what you say because it CAN impact your future."

    I don’t either. Literally not with close friends in private, really never. Maybe 4 times in the last 10 years. Went most of my adult life without using it, stemming from a time when I was 12 and my good black friend (like family) tried to force me to say it when I stayed the night. Didn’t do it.

    BTW Gruden resigned. He was not fired, hence the shitty and predictable take you quoted does not apply. He left on his own. Mark Davis the owner of the Raiders are great friends and Gruden could have weathered the storm, because Davis probably would have went to bat for him. Gruden knew what he emailed was dumb, and made the best move for his friend and resigned. Yes he would have lost the locker room. There is like 50+ guys on a football team. You think all 50 would have been cool with it. There would have been someone that would not be cool with it. When is the last time 50 people agreed on anything.
    The narrative on this has been off base the whole time. Derp it was 10 years ago, worse people play in the NFL, gay mafia makes him lose his job, free speech, private emails, his is not really racist, blah, blah, blah. The media manipulation has been out in the open on this story. One side he is racist other side wokeness wins.
    The Golden rule applies to this story and that is all it is about. Gruden was collateral damage to a much bigger story. The NFL or Washington was hoping Gruden would take the bullet(or shot with the bullet), because the WFT had people in charge that were forcing cheerleaders to take topless photos. Rampant sexual harassment, and everyone is taking the Gruden bait, which goes to show how manipulated Americans are. How come the NFL is not releasing all the WFT emails? That is the question you should be asking, not playing whataboutism, because that is what the NFL wants.

    Yeah... No shit. Why release these emails at all? It's from an investigation that wasn't directed at Gruden at all.

    Take note... When the Feds claim they want access to private phones purely for Child Porn investigations... lol... You're fucking gullible sucker if you even come close to believing that's all they'll do.

    Oh yea that is scary and it could go that direction. Phone company’s and ISP’s might become political .. woke or whatever and start using things against people they don’t like. There is something to this and it’s disturbing how it’s being release like a hit job. He said dumb ass things but how many people played Xbox or PS online and hear worse daily. This pretending that even one is perfect therefore servers punishment is the cancel culture effect. It’s becomes a political game on how to respond to something in the public eye .. you handle it right then it doesn’t matter you aren’t cancelled per say abs the pitchforks are gone. It’s not a good thing

    Don't get me wrong... What he said was complete garbage and stupid.

    But I don't get why his emails were released... He wasn't the target of the investigation. He wasn't even working for the NFL at the time.
