LETTER: Gruden had to go after criticizing the Roger Goodell

I am not a big Raiders fan nor a diehard Jon Gruden advocate. But, in my opinion, the NFL was gunning for him because of the things he said about Commissioner Roger Goodell.

While I’m not defending what came to light, I find it hard to believe that no other team or league personnel have sent emails like the ones sent by Mr. Gruden. Does the NFL expect us to believe that, out of the league’s thousands of employees and players, Mr. Gruden’s transgressions were the only ones found? Baloney. Mr. Gruden’s main sin was making remarks about the king, Mr. Goodell.
