Jon Gruden 2.0 will be remembered as a disgusting fiasco with the Raiders
The head coach walks out the back door in Las Vegas in one of the most embarrassing episodes of recent NFL
A miserable failure.
A disgusting fiasco.
Thus, we will remember the second term John Gruden Before Las Vegas Raiders, the team for which the coach himself is supposed to claim great love, and for which he helped forge his personal identity both inside and outside the league.
The Raiders Many people were surprised when they were able to convince them Groden out of the mailbox”Monday Night Football” With ESPN Returning to the team for an extraordinary contract worth $100 million and 10 seasons. The website “isgrudengoneyet” has been created, counting down how much time is left Groden To fulfill his 10-year contract and the money that was paid at that time was added.
At that time, this move generated feelings among believers in RaidersBut she was met with disbelief about the league. After all, how many coaches in NFL The last ten years with a team? How successful after this long absence from the networks?
Above all, the Raiders shoot jack del rio – the only coach so far this century who has had a winning record at the helm of the organization – to accommodate Gruden. And if that wasn’t enough, from the river led to Raiders to his only post-season victory in nearly two decades.
So what did he do? Raiders With Groden 2.0? 344 win percentages over three and a half seasons, no playoff appearances, and one of the most embarrassing episodes in franchise history.
We’re not even talking about the Super Bowls.
The last episode in the second installment of Groden It is especially painful for Raiders. Your former head coach and eventual majority owner, Al DavisHe was always in favor of protests against racial inequality and injustice, a trait that his son inherited Mark Davis, the current owner. Davis He was the only one among the owners NFL who abstained in favor of a resolution on how to deal with players kneeling in protest of racial injustice during the national anthem a few years ago.
From 1997 to 2011, Amy Trask She served as the CEO of the organization, making her the most powerful woman in the league at the time, working hand in hand Davis Baba.
For this reason, there are racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments from A Groden Which was thought to be all about being a member of Raiders. It turns out the opposite.
The Raiders They should live a time of sporting prosperity, thanks to their recent transition to luxury Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas Like the beginning of a new era. Instead, they are mired in one of the biggest scandals the league has seen lately, and Groden He left through the back door.
Members Raiders They have every right to feel betrayed. Not only did the team not go as promised when he came back Groden for the 2018 campaign, but the team is now in a “black hole” mess.
There is no other way to describe it: a savior’s promise, a disgusting fiasco.
