Agreed.

Gruden is done, done.

Seem's like I remember years ago rumors were swirling about the Cowboys trying to entice Sean back to Texas.
I think some were talking about Chucky coming here. For our sake Karma was good to us.

Nope. Gruden is CANCELLED. He may return to tv in 5 years or so to ESPN Ocho but for now, cancelled.

Re: Jon Gruden tells staff he will resign

I'm sure Chucky is no angel, but this doesn't sit right with me. You would think all the time Chucky spent working with ESPN and the sports media plus the fact that his apology came pretty quick and seemed like a decent one would have bought him some consideration. In a saner world, it would seem like a 2-4 game suspension would have been enough of a reprimand.

Pretty sick sign how quick stones get cast and Schefter gets his rabid sick pleasure reporting on yet another manufactured scandal. They were so quick to turn him into the NFL's Donald Sterling, yet Sterling's comments were audio not private emails and were much more inflammatory as I remember. I don't think Chucky being a keyboard warrior should mean his instant removal, and let's face it, at this point almost all of us have felt or wrote far worse things about NFLPA Smith and Goodell - they are both truly stooges.

I do get that Gruden did not want "Chuckygate", but I wish he'd fought for himself a little longer too. Doesn't set a good precedent.

Re: Jon Gruden tells staff he will resign

Listening to ESPN on my way to work this morning, and one of the guys on the Keyshawn, JWill and Max show, I'm pretty sure it was JWill, said that he thought it looked like they were trying to take Gruden down.

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