Raiders Owner Mark Davis Calls Out NFL Over Gruden Scandal
Raiders owner Mark Davis has called out the NFL for treating the team unfairly and for the poor timing of the Jon Gruden email scandal.
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden resigned earlier this month following the exposure of racist, homophobic and misogynistic emails.
Speaking to reporters at the NFL owners meeting on Tuesday for the first time since Gruden resigned, Davis said that he is was ‘disappointed’ with the poor timing of the scandal.
“The fact that they may have known about it a couple of months beforehand and didn’t let us know,” Davis said referring to the fact that the NFL already knew about Gruden’s emails.
“I believe that if we had gotten the information earlier in the summer, when [the NFL] learned about it, it would have been a lot easier for everyone involved,” he added.
Davis also said to reporters at the meeting that he believes the NFL should release a written report of their findings from the recent investigation into the Washington Football Team’s emails.
“Probably, yeah. I think that there should be, yeah. Especially with some of the things that were, I guess, charged,” he said.
