I would be curious if anyone from the Madden actual community asked for this?
I will state once again that when Gruden was just racist, none of his sponsors or companies cared. There was a 100% chance that he would have kept his job with the Raiders if the only released emails were the Michelin Tire lips. The moment that emails were released calling Roger Goodell a F*ggot, the flood gates have opened.
I understand them changing the coach because he is no longer with the team, but would anyone have complained if he was still in the game?
No one cares about this. People care that EA continually puts out a subpar Madden every year since they got exclusive rights.
This reminds me of when they added Colin Kaepernick back into the game after being pressured but made him a super player better than all the starting Quarterbacks. Moves like this are just reactionary to hopefully gain favor, but they don’t address the real problem in the grand scheme of things.
No one has been able to tell me why racist emails couldn’t cause this reaction, but homophobic ones are causing mountains to be moved across the country.
I have been waiting for an answer, and I haven’t gotten one, so I provided my own, which is EA, and the NFL doesn’t fear repercussions from racism the way they fear the LGBTQ community. I am not sure what it says about us as black people that we are continually brushed aside and do absolutely nothing, but then again, Gruden’s black players didn’t seem that bothered by the initial racist emails that came out.
Jon Gruden would have kept his job if only racist emails were leaked.
The NFL for years have been insulting their black audience's intelligence by trying to placate them with things that didn't ask for like hashtags & Alicia Keys.
Why is that?
I have the answer.

It is hilarious that this will take weeks to be done. By that time, people will be on to other things, and Gruden will be long forgotten.
