Jon Gruden tells staff he will resign

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; I wonder if the estate of Bob Cummins and Harvey Lembeck will sue Urban Mayer over the use of "The Finger"? Watch 1963's Beach Party. You'll understand....

Interesting observation. They also mentioned this all came out as part of the investigation into WFT. Like Gruden was collateral damage.

Just think about it - while investigating past actions of Team A, the NFL finds materials about active coach of Team B and leaks those details to the NY Times while investigation is still in progress. I would be appalled if I was the Raiders owner or GM. This may be the sickest thing Goodell has done in quite some time.

Re: Jon Gruden tells staff he will resign

When Gruden worked as a commentator for ESPN, he called Goodell a “faggo-t and an “anti football pus-sy”
— among other insults — in emails to former Washington Football Team president Bruce Allen, the New York Times reported Monday.

Ya think that may have sealed Chucky's fate. That's some Bad Karma..

Makes you wonder who actually likes Goodell. And don't say the owners because I'll bet Saints ownership isn't too fond of him.

I'll be honest, I haven't read any of Gruden's emails but removing him from the Buccaneers Ring-of-Honor seems silly.

NFL contends it released no Jon Gruden emails

15 years ago I would agree. Today? Its the Queen Hatshepsut treatment.

If you are perceived as a threat you must be cancelled, deleted, torn down, removed from existence, stricken from the record, never to be seen or heard from again otherwise you may offend or threaten again. Pages torn.
Monuments revoked. Removed from the list as if you never existed.

Most people will have to google hatshepsut is my guess. Not so ironic really...

What Gruden said is wrong and not at all unexpected frankly. That's who he is. 15 years ago he'd lose his job. And he should. Today he'll be treated like a queen.

You wonder how Sean's taking this whole Gruden turn of events.
They did coach together in Philly early on and seemed to have remained friends over the years.

Good article. Mentions how the league got exactly what they wanted out of this whole situation.

Re: Jon Gruden tells staff he will resign

This ain’t over. NFLPA is demanding all 650,000 e-mails investigated be released. There is another “smoking gun” there somewhere. Since they were friends, Gruden likely sent an e-mail to Payton sometime ago that will be used to come after him. Just wait for it.
