    I am shocked Gruden didn’t incorporate some football into his racism.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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?”

    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.
