Former Buccaneers HC Jon Gruden lawsuit heading to arbitration
The fireworks between former Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden and the NFL are only getting started. Here is where we are at as it stands.
The NFL wants the Jon Gruden lawsuit against the NFL to be dismissed and not move forward to arbitration.
The former Bucs and Raiders coach is alleging that the NFL targeted and singled out Gruden by releasing only the emails that Gruden had written while the NFL did not publicize the other, at the time, 500,000 emails in an effort to force out Gruden from the NFL.
This moment was not a great look for the former head coach or the league as a whole.
Buccaneers fans, football fans, just think for 10 seconds about streaming a trial with the NFL on one side and Jon Gruden’s legal team on the other side. Gruden on the stand, a lawyer stating objections. A judge banging the gavel. ” Order in the court!” What kind of “evidence “regarding the NFL, communications, emails, which team might get re-located next could come out? Could information the NFL does not want the public to know become available for anyone to read about in the media?
Now that I’ve got everyone excited about the possibilities, here’s how a trail of NFL vs Jon Gruden could play out. This is the information that we NFL fans could learn about the inner workings of the league we love.
Realistically, a lot of analysts, former players, media, and podcasters, think the NFL will settle with Jon Gruden to prevent a trial from happening. It’s going to have to be a large sum of money. Jon Gruden was also an NFL broadcaster, so that’s two careers the NFL ended with the release of the emails.
This isn’t going to be very pretty.
