Jon Gruden, coming off a Week 2 league-imposed $100,000 mask fine, had more mask troubles Sunday in New England where, by the end of the game, his neck gaiter had been turned into a mask thong. How? Probably scissors. Why? Probably because Jon was having trouble breathing.
How much will it cost him? You have to assume it’ll be at least another $100k, probably more since he’s now on the offender list.
The shield has said the perfect mask fit is “so that it securely fits across the wearer’s nose and mouth to prevent transmission of the virus.”
I’m not here to play mask cop like a Karen Rovell or a Peter King. I’m here to laugh at Gruden being the first one to think of turning the gaiter into a thong. It’s a great Gruden moment.
“I’m doing my best,” Gruden said after Week 2. “I’ve had the virus. I’m doing my best. I’m very sensitive about it, but I’m calling plays. I just wanna communicate in these situations and I apologize and if I get fined I’ll have to pay the fine, but I’m very sensitive about that and I apologize.”
