    I've said worse in texts. But Gruden makes millions. If you are paid that much money by an organization--considerably less in many cases--you are representing them 24 hours a day. You cant get drunk and get a little rowdy at the strip club and expect no one will notice.

    I'm aware. I'm using that as an example of irresponsible behavior. Gruden should know everything he says, even in "private" can come back to haunt him.

    I expect the Gruden to Tennessee talk to ratchet up pretty fast

    It wasn't political correctness that took Gruden down.

    It was Gruden's emails that took him down. Should I say that again for the people in the back.

    Political correctness or common decency?

    You can look back at my posts and not see me really mention Trump in 9 months.
    However some posters daily have to tie everything back to Trump.

    From what I’ve heard Trump doesn’t pay anybody, period

    Hah! I do that exact same thing fairly often. I go back and read my post later and realize it.

    Actually, I think what's often described as 'political correctness' is really nothing but common decency. And, in this case, that's exactly what brought him down.

    I did think it was out of character for you, I guess that's why I responded.

    Frankly, what Gruden said and the frequency that he said it are inexcusable. But it’s 2021. People should know by now (heck, they should have know 20 years ago) that you shouldn’t write anything in an email—particularly an office email—that you wouldn’t write on a postcard.

    It would sure be better than letting Goodell’s crew decide what gets leaked and what doesn’t.
