Jon Gruden has resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. He made racist and homophobic comments in e mails about 10 years ago that were published in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times.

Redzone is brilliant.

The 4 games up and field goals going everywhere but between the sticks was great viewing.

Not that it matters, but his emails and pronouncements go from 2010 to 2018.

At least he felt sufficient shame to resign.

victimless crime how many wife/ girlfriend beaters are still playing?
One well known qb has 24 sexual assault allegations against him and is still eligible to play .
Thought crimes by a white coach are much worse

The cowboys struggled to beat the Patriots eventually getting there in overtime. The cowboys are 5-1.

The vikings get to 3-3 with an overtime victory over the Panthers 34-28.

Should have known you'd be the one to jump to his defence. ;D ::)

First, he put his "thoughts" into words. Repeatedly, over many years. Second, who are you to say there were no victims? Can you say Gruden didn't deny opportunities to or unfairly treat players and staff over the years on account of his racist and homophobic attitudes?

As for the whataboutery, fair point. The NFL, like so many major organizations and corporations, has double standards and only moves, very slowly and belatedly, on these types of issues when societal attitudes and pressure reaches a certain point. You'll get absolutely no objection from me, only laudatory applause, if and when the NFL starts reacting appropriately to all kinds of player misconduct off the field.

One is forced to wonder, however, why the two dozen charges of sexual misconduct don't bother you when it comes to certain other individuals?

What is wrong with the Chiefs this year? They were just about the best team over the last three years with the amazing Pat Mahomes at quarterback. Now they are about to go to 3-4 losing badly to the Titans.

Derrick Henry's broken foot is a tragedy for the league and football fans. Didn't break 100 yards the last couple of weeks but back to back 2,000 yard seasons and the single season record were definitely on the line.

He could be back for the playoffs if the Titans make it.

Jameis winston the saints qb is gone for the season too. That should be the end of them as a threat. Although they did ok against the Bucs without him.

The vikings who couldn't beat the cowboys with Cooper Rush at quarterback will now be without Danielle Hunter their standout defensive end. He tore his pectoral muscle.

Their threat so far this season has been quality defence and getting the ball to Kamara.  I think even i might jus be able to get the ball 5 yards to Kamara. That being said, they arent good enouh to be considered a threat in my opinion. And i hope i am incorrect.

Ruggs has now been cut by the raiders. It looks like he will be serving a few years in prison.
