Title: Scapegoat Chuckie and Other NFL Tidbits
Post by: Snaggletiger on October 13, 2021, 02:29:15 PM
If you even glance at the sports news lately, you know that John Gruden "resigned" from his post as head honcho of the Las Vegas Raiders.  How weird is it to say that?  Currently, there's an investigation ongoing into all kinds of BS that allegedly went on in the Washington Football Redskins Team organization.  Sexual misconduct, harassment, secretly filming cheerleaders getting undressed etc.  Hell, I take shower pics all the time and nobody is investigating me.  So, during the investigation, they uncover some emails that Gruden sent, albeit 10 years ago, to someone in the Redskins organization that'll getcha' farred in short order.

Nobody knows who leaked the emails to the press. but the NFL says that due to privacy reasons, none of the other 650,000 emails will be released or even talked about.  So let me get this straight.  You're investigating Washington for sexual misconduct, but the Raiders coach, who was an ESPN analyst at the time, gets run out of town, and you're not going to talk about any of the other 650,000 emails?  No cover up to see here.  No owner that Goodell might be protecting.  Move along. 

On the field, my Dirty Birds suck ass, as usual, at 2-3.  Tom Fucking Brady looks like he's 25.  Through 5 games, the man has thrown for 1,767 yards 15TD's and only 2 INT's.  He has a 108.5 QB Rating at 44 freakin' years old.  Love him or hate him, that's off the chizzain.

Patrick Mahomey and KC are skruggling. Picked to win it all by some, they're 2-3 and have a defense Bo Nix could throw on.  For you that love the bet, I had a can't miss tip for this past weekend for the KC/Buffalo game.  Heard some betting guru giving the stats on KC and how they were 1-7 against the spread their last 8 games.  Their D is putrid and Buffalo is on a roll.  He said take the Bills and the points.  They won by 18.

How bout' them Cowboys?  One close loss to Tampa.  Dak and the Boys have rolled in the rest.  They may be a playa again. 

Entertaining season so far.

Again, no one cares. It’s thoughtful of you though to let everyone know for the 874th time by commenting on a thread about a sport you hate. We get it dude.

Just a quick overview from an article I read, of the content of Gruden's emails.  What's interesting is who was he sending these to, and what was their response?  Because you know there was some back and forth, or Gruden wouldn't have kept up the dialogue.  But the NFL is singling out Gruden?  Hmmm...


 Among the findings, Gruden reportedly expressed his disapproval of the NFL's hiring of women as referees, drafting gay players and tolerating players who protested during the playing of the national anthem. He also criticized commissioner Roger Goodell for placing an emphasis on player safety, referring to him by an anti-LGBTQ slur and calling him a "clueless anti football p----."

Gruden also derided Goodell for, as he viewed it, pressuring then-Rams head coach Jeff Fisher into drafting "queers," a reference to the Rams selecting Michael Sam as the first publicly gay player in NFL draft history.

In June, Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib became the first active NFL player to declare he is gay.

According to the Times, Gruden also mocked Caitlyn Jenner following her transition, and also responded to a sexist meme of a female referee by saying, "Nice job Roger."

I don’t disagree with any of what gruden says about goodell. I hate that guy. And even though he isn’t his boss nor was he - it’s close enough. And the old adage goes “you don’t call the boss out in front of the world and get away with that” - very much is what happened here. Mark davis sounded like he didn’t want to do it. But he makes a good point in saying that we’ve only seen grudens emails - let’s see the rest. Yeah. Me too. I wanna see everyone else’s. Let’s air out everyone’s dirty laundry. Not just 1 guy. This is gonna be what it takes to stop the insanity of cancel culture.

The owners put Goodell in power.  They are, in a sense, his constituents.  I imagine there's an ass load of stuff in this investigation that would bury more than one owner, which of course, will never see the light of day.

You still fail to see the irony of your posting on topics you claim to care less about. Over and over.

The Bucs won 28-22 last night over the Eaglits.  Brady was 34-42 with 2 TD and 1 INT, which came on a late first half bomb that he overthrew right before the half.

I don't care anything about Tampa, even though it looks like I may be gong to a home game in December.  But damn, Brady just amazes me.  Athletes at that level are so freaking huge, fast and strong, and this guy is at the absolute top of his game at 44 years old.  And even with those stats above, he was "off" last night.

I noticed the starting right guard for the Philadelphia Beagles, is Jack Driscoll.  He of the UMass transfer to Auburn fame.  Never would have thunk it.

People please.  This back and forth is triggering my PTSD.  You "COULDN'T" care less.  Not could.  Could means that you actually have a level of caring about the subject matter.  Couldn't means, you don't give a shit about it.  There different.  So, don't make me come up their.

Either are acceptable, although one is a truncated version of the entire phrase: I could care less, but I'd have to try.
