    As an old Raiders fan; Al Davis is rolling over in his grave. “Just Win Baby” had no exceptions for political correctness.

    You have any emails like that out somewhere from when you we’re about 50 years old? I don’t.

    Then you know that Al Davis had a long and documented history of trailblazing on civil rights for a man in his many positions.

    If he's rolling in his grave, it was because he'd have wanted to fire Gruden himself.

    What is political about the call for resignation?

    Those emails were awful. The stuff about Sam and the NFLPA negotiator, just indefensible. Referring to a black professional, or any black person for that matter, as having “Michelin-sized lips” is beyond the pale. That’s not a question of politics correctness. That’s a racist trope.

    And the sheer number demonstrates it wasn’t a single loss of judgment.

    And here comes this thread, about how Gruden is really the victim. smh…

    Poor Gruden.

    Loses $10m/year job for racist, homophobic, misogynistic and anti-player safety emails.

    Becomes victim.

    Please share with us the pejoratives that gruden used that you are ok with. Should be very diagnostic.

    If political correctness is what took him down, then score one for political correctness.

    Impossible. It was the woke leftist mob who forced poor Jon Gruden to sit there and type out those wretched emails.

    I was raised in the south. In my youth I used racist terms that I am not proud of. In the 80s I used terms that were not very supportive of the lbgt gang. In the last 30 years it's a nope.

    This topic is the main appeal of Trumpism: to be outwardly blatantly racist and awful and expect no consequences. Exactly how Trump has lead his life.

    it’s an entitlement as part of being a “real American” to still use slurs to demean others with no consequence…

    Does Trump pay you rent for all that space he takes up in your head?
