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.
