I would too. But, and this can not be said enough, at the time, it wasn't. Point of fact, the people he enslaved and murdered did just the same to others.
Oh look, someone trotted out the “enslaved people were just as bad” argument. Never heard that one before.

Well, cancel culture isn’t really about forgiveness or allowing people to change, unless it’s someone busted on their side for the same shit they speak out against.
Gruden could have lied, not lied, eaten a baby on YouTube, taken a shit on his neighbor’s lawn, eaten a tuna sandwich….
It was all gonna end the same and there won’t be any difference in the result.
It’s just a news cycle. Nobody will remember this next week, except maybe the Raiders’ locker room.
It sounds like you will…

The people who demand someone like this be fired are the same type of people who will be out tomorrow marching in the street to get a cop killer released from prison.
I wonder if anyone actually demanded he get fired or his organization simply decided he had crossed a line? Fwiw I think he rightfully resigned/was terminated, but you won’t find me marching anywhere to free a convicted killer..:dunno:

OK, I should’ve specified of “some of the people“ or “a lot of the people“. Obviously, not every single person, people are reading way too much into things here.

Understood. I guess the point I was trying to make is that you can be a rationale person yet still believe this guy is a douchebag who deserved to lose his job.

For the photo shoot, at the adults-only Occidental Grand Papagayo resort on Culebra Bay, some of the cheerleaders said they were required to be topless, though the photographs used for the calendar would not show nudity. Others wore nothing but body paint. Given the resort’s secluded setting, such revealing poses would not have been a concern for the women — except that the Redskins had invited spectators.

A contingent of sponsors and FedExField suite holders — all men — were granted up-close access to the photo shoots.

One evening, at the end of a 14-hour day that included posing and dance practices, the squad’s director told nine of the 36 cheerleaders that their work was not done. They had a special assignment for the night. Some of the male sponsors had picked them to be personal escorts at a nightclub.

“So get back to your room and get ready,” the director told them. Several of them began to cry.

awesemo.com, huh?

Sounds legit.

As a Chiefs fan Im very sad to lose him from the division. I was looking forward to 6 more years of raider ineptitude. Sooner or later just on blind luck they will eventually haire a good coach. I assume this also means the end of Mayock, shitty TV analyst, even worse NFLGM. The brain trust that traded away Khalil Mack deserves to be fired on principal. I also suppose this means that Derek "Eyeliner" Carr will also be moving his limited arm talent and subpar pocket presence on to greener pastures, and once again by blind luck they might manage to fall into a decent QB as well. Gruden, you fucking asshole. But for this season---F the Raiders!!!!

This is why I stress I'm a "fiction" writer.
LSD? Never tried it,I tell tales because guitarists enjoy debauchery. I was a RAIDERS fan up until 2000,then lost interest in sports,way too commercial. I'm glad I stay away from BIG issues.........only thing I can get "hung" for is bad POETRY
