Jon Gruden is a goner as coach of the Las Vegas Raiders and probably from football altogether. All because of some offensive emails he sent a decade ago.
But is it hypocritical of the NFL to force Gruden out while allowing some other questionable characters to keep their jobs?
“Jon Gruden gets a DUI, or two DUIs, is arrested for domestic assault potentially — I think he might keep his job with no issues,” Clay said. “That’s the standard we’ve set on words vs. actions, right?”
In other words, it seems the NFL is more focused on the “words” part of things.
“There are people in the NFL (both past and present) who have stabbed individuals, they have beaten wives and girlfriends, they have engaged in felonious conduct, and they keep their jobs,” Buck added.
“For (Gruden) to lose his job based on things he said, or I should say, wrote, that he believed to be private — now, some of them were in very bad taste — I think that everybody probably knows that football players certainly have used that word to describe each other and stuff. So I think there’s different variations of seriousness of what the different terms used here are.”
