The NFL strategist was involved in the controversy after a 2011 email in which he racistly insulted the leader of the players’ unionAlthough Gruden said there was “not a hint of racism” on him. Don’t forget that Gruden was working as a commentator on a sports television network at the time, but League officials continued an internal investigation.
In accordance with The New York Times,Gruden threw out homophobic and mischievous comments steadily. for several years on topics such as women’s participation in arbitration of American professional football, as well as the writing of a gay player or against players who protested when the national anthem was playing from United States.
The messages were like recipient to Bruce Allen, the former president of Washington Football Team when working for ESPN at Monday night games. The email that this investigation began with was when he called Roger Goodell “queer” and “clueless anti-football idiot”.
The head of the Las Vegas institution declared on Sunday to ESPN that the NFL was reviewing the emails in which it criticized Goodell, but He justified the action by being upset even though he accepted that he hurled expletives in written messages. The problem is that shipping also there will have been photos of women dressed in underwear, two of them cheerleaders of the Washington team as reported The New York Times.
Not only that, but Gruden criticized Goodell pressuring Jeff Fisher, Rams coach, for recruiting “queers”, in reference to Michael Sam, an athlete who declared himself gayy who was chosen during the 2014 season.
Neither Gruden, Allen or the NFL itself, much less the Raiders spoke about it when the subject came to light. The current Raiders coach has been with the team since 2018 and even included Carl Nassib, the first active player to say publicly that he belongs to the gay community.
Finally, Gruden also spoke about the re-election of Barack Obama in 2012 and about Joe Biden when he was vice president by calling him a “nervous and unconscious idiot”. So Gruden will be out of the NFL with information to be confirmed in the next few hours.
Jon Gruden sends a statement after announcing his departure in which he apologizes for the comments he made.
