“Listen, the Raiders stand for diversity, inclusion and social justice. We always have and we always will. The emails that came out are not what we stand for. So Jon Gruden is no longer head coach of the Raiders. There’s not much more I can say. All the talking heads are making up all sorts of stuff. That’s all it is. We don’t stand for it,” Davis explained, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

For those of you who don’t know, in the emails, Gruden made a remark about the size of DeMaurice Smith‘s lips, called President Joe Biden a “nervous clueless pu**y,” and called Roger Goodell a “fagg*t” and a “clueless anti football pu**y.”

While I certainly don’t defend the language Gruden used or everything that was said, it should be noted that while there were 650,000 emails analyzed, only the former Raiders coach went down.

That’s right, folks. We’re supposed to believe only Jon Gruden was guilty of any wrongdoing.

Two things can be true at the same time. What Gruden said was unacceptable and wrong, and this whole thing is a sham if we’re never going to see the other 650,000 emails.

It’s that simple. I understand why Davis feels the way he does, but fans need answers that we’re not getting.

Fans deserve better, and it’s that simple.
