Jon Gruden offers cryptic statement in first comments since losing Raiders job over controversial emails

Former Raiders coach Jon Gruden has actually been keeping a low-profile given that resigning from his task on Oct. 11 and although he still hasn’t made any public remarks about his circumstance, he did provide a puzzling declaration when reached just recently by a manufacturer for an HBO program. 

Emmy-winning sports reporter Andrea Kremer discussed how the circumstance decreased throughout the current episode of the Real Sports Podcast. Back in September, Kremer did a profile on Raiders owner Mark Davis for the HBO program Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. Less than 3 weeks after the profile aired, Gruden’s e-mails were dripped, which caused his ultimate resignation from the group. After he left the task, among Kremer’s manufacturers chose to call Gruden and here’s what took place: 

“Maggie Burbank, who produced the (HBO) story that we just did on Mark Davis, she actually called Gruden and he picked up the phone, much to I think her surprise,” Kremer stated on the Real Sports Podcast. “And he’s still in Las Vegas. He says he’s letting the dust settle. He said, ‘People who know me know what I stand for for 58 years. I have a resume of 58 years.’ He said, ‘The truth will come out.’ It’s certainly cryptic.”

Considering Gruden had not openly stated anything given that the day of his resignation, it’s definitely worth mentioning that he particularly made certain to inform a press reporter that, “The truth will come out.” As Kremer kept in mind, that’s absolutely a puzzling remark for Gruden to make. 

The previous Raiders coach resigned from his task after several e-mails dripped previously this month that revealed him utilizing misogynistic, homophobic and racist language throughout discussions with previous Washington Football Team president Bruce Allen. The NFL had actually been examining Washington for unwanted sexual advances and work environment misbehavior and throughout the course of that examination, the league acquired more than 650,000 e-mails. Although the majority of e-mails are still under lock and secret, Gruden’s became part of a little batch that dripped out to a number of media outlets. 

It’s unclear what Gruden suggested when he stated the “truth will come out,” however in what might or might not be a coincidence, it appears Congress likewise desires the reality out there. In a letter to Roger Goodell sent out on Thursday, 2 members of the House of Representatives are requiring that the NFL offers Congress with the findings of the Washington examination. 

Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-New York), who is the Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Illinois) sent out a five-page letter to Goodell asking him to turn over all the essential info from the Washington examination by Nov. 4. 

The NFL hasn’t stated if it’s going to comply, however if it does not, you can wager things will get back at more intriguing come Nov. 4. If Congress can’t get the NFL to launch its findings, Gruden may likewise have another alternative to get the reality out there. As kept in mind by Pro Football Talk, the previous Raiders coach might take legal action against the NFL, which might perhaps require the league to expose some more of the e-mails in court, including who had access to the Gruden e-mails that ultimately got dripped. 

The bottom line is that in between Gruden’s declaration and Congress’ participation, it appears this circumstance is far from over.
