Let me see here. Private emails 10 years ago. And he called people fags, faggots, Pu$$y and said someone had big lips.
Turn on any rap artist and you hear all that and more (N word on blast) for full public consumption
I am not saying those words are great but. Ever actually played or coached even HS sports? OK, so I am not talking intramural ice soccer like someone. And I am not talking attendance practice with Daddy like Benedict Like, people who actually played or had kids who played. Rules those two out. But really.
Even at youth football games, often it's parents or coaches. But let me help you. Fag, faggot, Pu$$y are mild. And are regular parts of a conversation Kids call each other, their opponents etc. I'll add thatBOY and LITTLE BOY are pretty common too. Get older and mother F**&ker and C*&^sucker are part of every rivalry game.
And oh really? Randy Moss and Keyshawn are sad? Their little hearts are crying? I have personally hear Key call people fags and faggots. And BOY was his favorite at one point. Sports Illustrated in t he mid 2000s wrote an article about how bad the language was on an NBA court and how shocking it was to courtside patrons paying thousands per game.
So again. Rappers are doing this for little kids to hear. People are swaying and getting down to these words. NBA guys are blasting them left and right into the expensive seats in public. FOOTBALL? I realize that I never played midgets ICE SOCCER and therefore couldnt possibly have an opinion, but I can promise that in collegiate pro and even HS baseball, basketball and football, all of the above is common. The only time I have ever seen it get out of hand is when a white kid says something racial to a black kid. Draw your own conclusion there.
So again, why Gruden? Was someone out to get him? Was it that it "embarrassed" the league? Did the Raiders turn on him because now that they are a decent team they don't want to pay him all that money? Get out from under a long term contract after they found out he was not very good?
