As most of the world knows at this point Jon Gruden has resigned from his position as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. This happened due to messages from the former coach coming to a new light. Gruden said a litany of awful things that can never be taken back.
Gruden’s former employer, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released a statement in the light of this stating that Gruden will no longer be a member of the Buccaneers Ring of Honor. Now, some of the casual fans might be curious as to why a team Gruden doesn’t work for would take this sort of action. WEll Gruden won a Super Bowl with the Buccs in 2003. This came against his old team the Oakland Raiders, and some have shied away from giving too much credit to Gruden as many things fell right into his lap.
It’s great to see teams being proactive and taking action on these injustices as it took the Raiders organization way to long to come to a final conclusion for Gruden. Hopefully more teams follow suit and get rid of their unethical employees.
The internet of course, did it’s thing. With the Buccs going out and being productive it obviously comes with people feeling the need to try and call the organization hypocrites.
These blue checkmark bastards will come after any and everything they can find that makes them feel validated. With the Sherman situation, it has been a very clear and open conversation that Sherman has been dealing with multiple mental health issues, and that the situation dealing with his arrest is still being looked into.
