The email from Jon Gruden denigrating DeMaurice Smith is appalling, abhorrent and wholly contrary to the NFL’s values,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said. “We condemn the statement and regret any harm that its publication may inflict on Mr. Smith or anyone else.

Raiders team owner Mark Davis also condemned Gruden.

The content of an email regarding DeMaurice Smith from Jon Gruden when he worked for ESPN 10 years ago is disturbing and not what the Raiders stand for. We were first made aware of the email late yesterday by a reporter and are reviewing it along with other materials provided to us today by the NFL. We are addressing the matter with Coach Gruden and will have no further comment at this time,” Davis said in a statement.

에 2011, Gruden was a commentator for ESPN after his first stint with the Raiders and years after he won a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The email was sent to then-워싱턴 축구 대표팀 president Bruce Allen in the midst of the lockout.

Gruden told The Wall Street Journal he was angry at the time at the direction of the players, which were led by Smith. He claimed in the past he had referred to people who he believed were lying asrubber lipsand that he took thingstoo far.

I was upset. I used a horrible way of explaining it,” Gruden said.

I don’t think he’s dumb. I don’t think he’s a liar. I don’t have a racial bone in my body, and I’ve proven that for 58 연령.”

Smith told the newspaper Gruden’s remark just reflected how tough it was for Black people in society in general.

This is not the first racist comment that I’ve heard and it probably will not be the last. This is a thick skin job for someone with dark skin, just like it always has been for many people who look like me and work in corporate America. You know people are sometimes saying things behind your back that are racist just like you see people talk and write about you using thinly coded and racist language,” 스미스가 말했다.

Racism like this comes from the fact that I’m at the same table as they are and they don’t think someone who looks like me belongs. I’m sorry my family has to see something like this but I would rather they know. I will not let it define me.

McCarthy said during a review of emails regarding the Washington Football Team’s own workplace misconduct investigation the NFL wasinformed of the existence of emails that raised issues beyond the scope of that investigation.
