The Lounge>Jon Gruden made an oopsie [and has resigned]
Superturtle 03:30 PM 10-08-2021

NFL statement: “The email from Jon Gruden denigrating DeMaurice Smith is appalling, abhorrent and wholly contrary to the NFL’s values. We condemn the statement and regret any harm that its publication may inflict on Mr. Smith or anyone else.” https://t.co/b9IUku9saH

what would it have accomplished? everyone basically agrees that racism and homophobia are bad now, that's why Gruden "resigned" less than a week after the original story came out lol.

what is he supposed be like "I don't think you should call people bundle of stickss" well okay, now we know that the guy who gets paid millions to be on TV 20 weeks out of the year understands basic human interactions but we already knew that.

There is a sense that it's not so much about not wanting to be disparaged so much as wanting to be the center of discourse and to be celebrated when the opportunity arises. They need to emotional lift of seeing someone, even someone peripheral like Reid, tearfully proclaim how saddened they are when evil people disparage such beautiful, wonderful, courageous and stunning people.

Also, there is a little bit of intrigue, whether someone will 'fumble' the rhetoric and say something that will bring on another mishegas.

On the flip side, I NEVER saw my dad use the language that Gruden reportedly used in his emails. NEVER. My dad could be salty... very salty. A gawddamn here, a JC there, and calling people stupid idiots and assholes and such. But he never went there with racism and gays. I don't know why. He just didn't. Perhaps being in a foxhole in WWII with men from all walks of life had an effect on him. But he just didn't do that shit.

And neither should anyone. It's just stupid. Talk shit. Just talk smart shit.
I would imagine WWII vets in a foxhole would have called Germans Italians and Japanese every name in the book.

Amazing the mental gymnastics people like you go through to rationalize your disdain for a black man that doesn’t follow the woke gospel.


The audacity that you think it takes a genius to grift right wing dipshits is hilarious. That guy couldn't hack it at FOX. He was a joke on the lot. Even people at Fox news thought he was transparent.

All you have to do is say actually actually ACTUALLY it's the black guy who is the racist! Look at me I'm black! I should know! Hillbilly America nods *sagely*

Bam 500,000 dipshits eat that up because it's easier to have your preconceived notions justified than changing your worldview. It's the most obvious con going today. You think Lauren Boebert is a genius to go around attacking women who speak out on feminist issues? That moron is a national disgrace.

And speaking of transparency, you familiar backwoods rejects out here defending the right to be racist, sexist, homophobic and worst of all, a Raiders coach, aren't fooling anybody.

And finally we have arrived, once again, to the most important point of this conversation. Gooooooo FUCK yourself, Staylor.

Thank you so much for proving my point. A screed spouting bile at 'hillbillys' 'morons' and 'backwoods rejects' at the same time you weep like a broad about racism, sexism and homophobia.

You're just as resentful and impulsive as Gruden, you just think you're sanctified.

And I say that NOT to weep about your disparaging comments, but to point out the hypocrisy of your weeping.

If you feel the way you've expressed yourself, I welcome the honesty and am adult enough to deal with it without emotional blackmail. Just wish others had that level of maturity and equanimity.

I don’t think anyone outside of that little echo chamber even realize he is still alive.
You're talking about him. So there's that. :-)

The generations that put mentally handicapped people, gays and lesbians and anyone else they didn’t like in mental asylums? Yeah….we can stop acting like they were great fucking people.
