“Lips the size of michelin tires”
Do a favor and post the transcript?
This isn’t a great look, but this seems stupid.
super gross. i know that's 10 years ago but who the fuck talks like that?
explains POWESHOW's fandom, at least
I am shocked Gruden didn’t incorporate some football into his racism.
“He looks like a guy that should be eating a spider y banana”
totally casual racism is best swept under the rug
Gruden to LSU?
Let’s not confuse our Ticks and Toks pls and ty
I just don’t find a ten year old email to a colleague news worthy in this context at all.
Now to be clear, Did he say something shitty? Yes. Should he have said it? No.
it’s not like some disgruntled employee released it. the NFL with all their history of being shitty found it problematic enough to warrant an investigation. it’s newsworthy as heck
Dumborriss Smith... damn got him pretty good
I didn’t read that article as it investigating this comment specifically at all. It sounded like they were investigating 650,000 emails as part of a broader investigation and this one turned up. Nevertheless, I don’t care about this story enough to argue about it tbh.
Raiders probably forwarded it over to the NFL to get out of that contract
There's just one problem. They're going after the wrong contract. Gruden doesn't play quarterback.
"it happened a decade ago" they say, referring to an e-mail with a racist trope a century old.
He should be fired. He might be coaching the only franchise that won’t fire him.
The Raiders have been one of the most progressive franchises in the league for a long time fwiw.
I should have said based on his relationship to the owner.
Jon Gruden tik tok?
Relax guys, maybe lip size is part of his scouting
Also, makes you wonder about Bruce Allen. Gruden feeling comfortable being that racist in an email to him.
what the fuck?
Oh, you missed out on that glorious day.
like... whats the context?
doesn't the entire Allen family have all kinds of dicey relationships through politics and racist gaffes that would have definitely made ole Grudes comfortable?
Chauvin verdict and really poor tact
they still have Mike Mayock
His dad was caught on camera using an obscure word thought to be a slur when he was governor of Va, yes
His brother was governor, awful family
I’m just proud of where we’ve come in the last 10 years. Nowadays, saying a black man has “Lips the size of michelin tires” is viewed as a racist thing.
I feel like when I joined this site a few years ago there would have been a 1000% chance someone would have said, “is saying that someone with large lips has large lips really racist though?”
There would definitely have been posters laughing and saying how hilarious it was and that anyone that had a problem with it was a snowflake that needed to toughen up.
He did the "I dont have a racist bone" excuse
We’ve certainly graduated from nostril-gazing
I've never heard the term rubber lips for lying.
You guys think this helps the Bears chances tomorrow? Asking for a friend….
Yeah I was skeptical hippo at that excuse as well
galaxy brained bigot in one of my group chats claimed that if you think that’s racist that means you think all black people have big lips so therefore you must be racist yourself.
How is the NFL going to do anything about a guy who wasnt employed by the NFL or an NFL team at the time he made these comments.
All that shit in regards to the WFT and they go after Gruden and The Raiders. Motherfuck the NFL league office
