Things are getting serious in the dispute between Jon Gruden and the NFL.
The former Las Vegas Raiders head coach is suing the league for attempting to destroy his career by leaking emails that ultimately cost him his job.
Grunden alleges that Roger Goodell deliberately leaked racist, homophobic, and misogynistic emails obtained during the WFT workplace investigation.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal
“Through a malicious and orchestrated campaign, the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell sought to destroy the career and reputation of Jon Gruden, the former head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders,”
“When their initial salvo did not result in Gruden’s firing or resignation, Defendants ratcheted up the pressure by intimating that further documents would become public if Gruden was not fired,d. “They followed through with this threat by leaking another batch of documents to the New York Times for an October 11, 2021 article. On October 7, 2021, Jon Gruden was the head coach of the Raiders on a 10-year, $100-million contract. By October 11, 2021, he had been forced to resign.”
