Monday brought one of the most stunning developments the NFL has seen in recent years: Jon Gruden, once perceived as untouchable in Las Vegas, stepped down as head coach after a series of racist, misogynist and anti-LGBTQ emails were released to the New York Times.
Gruden’s language—and his presumption that he could use such words—is problematic. But it points to a larger cultural problem that exists in places across to the NFL, and raises the biggest question of all: Why hasn’t the NFL released any details regarding the investigation into the Washington franchise’s toxic workplace environment?
The impact of Gruden’s words and the consequences he is now facing, what’s next for a Raiders franchise in which he once held near absolute power, and what’s next for the league office that now might have no choice but to act.
