If it's only for a night I can live without you

Rather than keep clogging up the Hot Seat Watch thread I figured it was time to branch this out to it's own discussion

https://nypost.com/2021/10/14/washington-football-team-cheerleaders-want-to-see-nfl-findings/

The Backstory:
Due to the investigation into WFT office life being a toxic mess toward the female employees, owner Dan Snyder is currently taking a "back seat" in the day to day operations while his wife is currently the CEO for an undetermined amount of time. The team was also fined 10 million dollars when the investigation was completed for running an "unprofessional workplace". HOWEVER, when the investigation was finished the NFL then said the findings would remain private. Allegedly, the report was never written down and only presented to Goodell as an oral account of the situation. The 650,000 emails that ultimately caused Gruden to lose his job were collected during this investigation and were not released due to "confidentiality". This clearly wasn't the case for long, as a little under a year later emails were leaked out and suddenly John Gruden became collateral damage. Thus far the only one to suffer any consequences for all of this is Gruden who never even worked with the team, and the NFL would prefer it stay that way as they are currently still trying to die on the hill of not releasing the rest of the emails or discussing the results of their investigation. Currently the NFLPA, the WFT cheerleaders, and others are trying to get the NFL to release the emails and also the findings of the report.

Where we are at currently:
John Gruden has resigned from coaching the Raiders after emails were leaked showing him using inappropriate and racist language with Bruce Allen who was still working with WFT at the time. Additionally, it also came out that the two had sent topless pictures of the cheerleaders back and forth that existed from a prior story the NFL buried
Adam Schefter also took some heat for forwarding articles to Bruce Allen to edit, and quickly backpedaled to saying that he's a real journalist who checks his content with sources first like a pro
Jeff Pash, who is Roger Goodells friend and the NFLs general counsel, also had emails get leaked saying unflattering things in conversations with Bruce Allen. Although not to the level of what Gruden said, his fate remains to be seen

Will try to keep OP updated with news and will add any more info I missed if I come across it.

I can't wait for this to start implicating other owners. If ESPN is going to get the heat from NFL redirection, we might start seeing real interesting things leaking.

If Gruden or Allen had called RG3 the very bad slur it would have already leaked by now. And if the lovely boomer guys werenít doing it I seriously doubt the young ones were.

I'm remembering the :allbuttons: story about the WFT cheerleaders that went overseas for a photo shoot & had their passports withheld. That in of itself should be one of the biggest :yikes: story but somehow it isn't.

It just hit me that Jay Gruden hasn't been burned in all this. Certainly there's plenty of this poo poo between him and Jon to go with the theme of Washington totally being cleaned up now with Ron Rivera. Guess I just answered my own question for who is next.

Who cares about Bruce Allen either? They've still named him both times. Jay was the head coach and it goes with the narrative that they're trying to paint. Washington is totally cleaned up since Rivera showed up.
