    Ethan Miller/Getty Images Jon Gruden, who was recently ousted as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, is suing the National Football League and Commissioner Roger Goodell. Gruden was at the center of serious controversy over a series of emails reported in the past month. The first report revealed he said of NFL Players’ Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith, a Black man, “Dumboriss Smith has lips the size of michellin tires.” Subsequent reporting said he sent out emails with homophobic and misogynistic language. Gruden ultimately resigned. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Gruden now says he was “forced to resign” after “a malicious and orchestrated campaign.” The lawsuit from Gruden accuses the NFL and Goodell of a “a Soviet-style character assassination.” “There was no warning and no process. Defendants held the emails for months until they were leaked to the national media in the middle of the Raiders’ season in order to cause maximum damage to Gruden,” it reads. The lawsuit also claims that they “ratcheted up the pressure by intimating that further documents would become public if Gruden was...
    Head coach Jon Gruden of the Las Vegas Raiders reacts to the crowd during warmups before a preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks at Allegiant Stadium on August 14, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada.Ethan Miller | Getty Images Former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden, who resigned last month after revelations that he had made racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments, is suing the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell. "Through a malicious and orchestrated campaign, the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell sought to destroy the career and reputation of Jon Gruden, the former head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders," said the lawsuit filed Thursday in Clark County District Court in Nevada. The lawsuit also alleges that Gruden was "forced" to resign.  NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy on Friday called Gruden's allegations "entirely meritless" and said it "will vigorously defend against these claims." Gruden's move to take legal action comes after reports that his emails included a past racist remark about NFL players' union head DeMaurice Smith, as well as sexist and homophobic language.

    Saturday Night Live opened up the third episode of its 47th season with a sketch mocking the NFL's recent email controversy that cost Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden his job.  The sketch featured jabs at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Gruden, Raiders owner Mark Davis, Colin Kaepernick and even actor Levar Burton.   Goodell, played by Weekend Update co-anchor Colin Jost, was brought on to try and explain the trouble, which included Gruden getting caught using a racist trope to describe him in a 2011 email that surfaced last week. 'Hi, I'm NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and when you see me on TV, it's never good,' Jost says as the embattled commissioner.  'This time, one of our coaches is accused of racism, misogyny, and homophobia, but hey, at least no one's talking about concussions,' he added. He then pointed out that the emails also featured several snipes at him.  'I think we can all agree the emails sent by Raiders coach Jon Gruden were horrifying and deeply offensive, especially to me,' he said.    Saturday Night Live opened up the...
    Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is calling on all NFL team owners, executives and coaches to 'open up' their emails after Jon Gruden resigned as head coach over the racist, homophobic language revealed in his. 'If we just started opening up everybody's private emails and texts, people would start sweating a little bit,' Carr told reporters Wednesday, as quoted by ESPN. 'Hopefully not too many. But maybe that's what they should do for all coaches and GMs and owners from now on, is open up. 'You've got to open up everything. See what happens.' Gruden resigned Monday after emails he sent to then-Washington Football Team executive Bruce Allen between 2011 and 2018 surfaced showing him using racist, misogynistic and homophobic language to criticize league figures. In the emails that were leaked to The New York Times this week, Gruden used several anti-gay slurs, such as 'f******' and 'queers,' in addition to other racist and misogynistic terminology. In another email that was leaked to The Wall Street Journal last week, Gruden told Allen in 2011 that African-American NFL union chief...

It came after a report last week from the Wall Street Journal revealed that the 58-year-old used racist language towards NFL Players Association boss DeMaurice Smith in a 2011 email. The New York Times reported that Gruden used a gay slur to insult NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and also called him "clueless" and "anti-football". The ex-Raiders coach is also alleged to have said that Goodell pressured the Rams to draft "queers" in reference to the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team Michael Sam.

The team entered the campaign as the favorites to win the Super Bowl, but following Sunday’s loss to the LA Chargers, Patrick Mahomes and Co. are now 1-2 on the season.

    Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib made history during the team's opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night, becoming the first openly gay NFL player to suit up in a regular season game. Not only did he play, he starred — making a pivotal strip sack to help the Raiders beat the Ravens, 33-27, in an overtime thriller.  With the game tied at 27 in extra time, Nassib stripped the ball away from Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson in the waning minutes of the period. The play then set up the Raiders' offense to score the game-winning touchdown after a come-from-behind effort by the team, who were playing their first game in Allegiant Stadium with fans.  Play of the game by Carl Nassib.

    (CNN)More than nine months after pharmaceutical companies announced they had developed an effective vaccine against Covid-19, the government is still struggling to get more shots in more arms. While millions of Americans raced to get protection from the pandemic, millions have also resisted: too busy, too suspicious, too hesitant, too confused. Nicole HemmerWith the Delta variant sending case numbers soaring, vaccination rates are climbing too. But it's not just a sense of self preservation fueling that rise. More than one in five US companies have started to require vaccination as a condition of employment for at least some employees, and more than half say they are likely to begin requiring it within a year. Nor is the American business community only focused on employees. More and more companies are requiring vaccines from those who use their services, too: members at Equinox and SoulCycle, students at major universities, visitors to Broadway theaters or to Las Vegas Raiders' football games. These private mandates serve a vital function at a moment when government officials are hesitant to create public mandates. Officials have,...
    Fans of the Las Vegas Raiders were mostly outraged when the team made a deal in 2018 to move linebacker Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears for a package that many thought was nowhere near good enough. Last season in 16 games, Mack had a pick along with nine sacks, half a sack more than the year prior when he tallied nine sacks. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM A report from The Athletic states that the Raiders, who were simply awful from a pass rushing standpoint last season, inquired to Chicago about a deal to bring back Mack to the Raiders organization, but Chicago didn’t budge. Pass rushers are never easy to find in the NFL, especially good ones, so Las Vegas’ deal to move Mack just seemed short sighted at the time. The loot back to the Raiders included Chicago’s 2019 and 2020 first-round picks, a sixth-round pick in 2019, and a third-round pick in 2020. With those picks, Las Vegas did amass some solid talent, such as Clelin Ferrell, Josh Jacobs, and Johnathan Abram last...

    Raiders fans won’t be able to dream of an undefeated season for very long. Las Vegas’ first loss will come very early in their 2021 regular season.  The Raiders would love to get off to a quick start in 2021 to improve their odds of making the postseason. Unfortunately, the NFL didn’t do Las Vegas any favors when it comes to their upcoming schedule. Any dreams the Raiders have of enjoying a magical undefeated season will be quickly dashed after Week 1. Las Vegas opens the year with a high-profile matchup against the Ravens on Monday Night Football. That happens to be the day when the Raiders will incur their first loss of the 2021 regular season. The ugly truth for the Las Vegas defense is that they just don’t match up well against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ offense. Gus Bradley will need time to get his personnel comfortable with his new defensive system. Playing Baltimore right out of the gate is one of the worst draws possible for Las Vegas’ new defensive coordinator.The Raiders have a problem at...

    Kyle Long says why he chose the Kansas City Chiefs over the Las Vegas Raiders in free agency. After spending a year out of football, former Chicago Bears offensive guard Kyle Long decided to join the Kansas City Chiefs over the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021 NFL free agency. While the Chiefs made sense for Long as a landing spot, as they were in dire need of offensive line help, as well as his former Bears head coach Matt Nagy being an Andy Reid disciple, Long is the son of Raiders legendary defensive end, Howie Long. As much as it pains his father for him to go to the Chiefs, Long did spell it out: “It becomes apparent that things are different here.” Long on visit to KC as opposed to Vegas: “It becomes apparent that things are different here.” #Chiefs — Harold R.

    The biggest question regarding the Raiders isn’t whether they’ll make the playoffs. It’s whether they’ll win another game. The Indianapolis Colts all but took care of the postseason question Sunday, an unstoppable force against a movable object in a 44-27 over the Raiders at Allegiant Stadium. The Raiders are technically in the race, but after after the way the Colts moved up and down the field and with the offense turning the ball over three times, it was no contest. Indianapolis improved to 9-4, with the Raiders falling to 7-6 with the Los Angeles Chargers (on Thursday night), Miami and Denver still to play. Even in the event of the Raiders righting the ship and winning three straight, a lot of things would have to break right for their first playoff berth since 2016.

    After beating the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, Travis Kelce accidentally gave credit to the Oakland Raiders.  In what turned out to be one heck of a ball game, the Kansas City Chiefs were able to avoid and upset and took down the Denver Broncos 22-16 at Arrowhead Stadium during Sunday Night Football. Inexplicably, the Chiefs had issues scoring touchdowns while in the red zone, but they did just enough to come away with the big AFC West victory. After the showdown, though, star tight end Travis Kelce made headlines for what he had to say, but it’s sure to fire up Raiders fans and build their confidence.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — As the light outside faded, the glittering casinos on the Las Vegas Strip came to life Monday evening through the giant lanai doors in the new home of the Raiders. If the backdrop was spectacular, so was the scene on the field. There were the Raiders playing the New Orleans Saints before a national television audience, a moment the late Howard Cosell would have never imagined when Monday Night Football kicked off exactly a half century earlier. No one else would have imagined it would take place before 65,000 empty seats, but that’s sports during a pandemic. Not only were fans missing — at least indoors — but so was Raiders owner Mark Davis, who expressed his solidarity with his new city by watching on TV with other team executives at the Raiders practice facility. His mother, Carol, was there, leading a ceremonial lighting of the giant torch honoring her late husband, Al. So was NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who just a few years ago was threatening to suspend any player who might even accidentally enter...
    Las Vegas Raiders first-round pick Damon Arnette is wearing a cast with the season fast approaching Earlier this week, the Las Vegas Raiders made the decision to cut NFL veteran cornerback Prince Amukamara. No, it didn’t have to do with the viral video of him being juked out by receiver Hunter Renfrow, but because head coach Jon Gruden was impressed by first-round selection Damon Arnette’s play during training camp. Just days after the glowing endorsement, Arnette is dealing with an injury. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Arnette is dealing with a fracture in his right thumb and is wearing a soft cast.

    The Las Vegas Raiders, originally called the Oakland Raiders, were founded in 1960 as the eighth team of the American Football League. The franchise struggled in the beginning after bouncing around from stadium to stadium. The Raiders were 9-33 in their first three years and home attendance averaged just around 11,000. But things would quickly change when in 1963, they hired Al Davis as the new head coach. The Raiders would go on to dominate for the next 20 years, winning the 1967 AFL championship, three AFC championships and three Super Bowls -- one of which came after the franchise was relocated to Los Angeles. But who would make a Mount Rushmore of Raiders players? Take a look at the list below.

    Al Davis’ legacy will live on in Las Vegas. As the lanai doors of the $2 billion Allegiant Stadium opened for the first time on Friday, the Raiders’ new home revealed a permanent monument to the late, longtime owner — whose son, Mark, now owns the team — in the form of an 85-foot torch, which is the largest structure ever created by a 3D printer, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The torch, made of carbon fiber and aluminum, will be lit before every game — with lights and special effects, rather than fire — continuing the tradition carried out in Oakland since Davis died in 2011. The massive memorial will also be visible from outside the stadium’s main entrance, just off The Strip. “You haven’t seen anything like it anyplace else,” Allegiant Stadium COO Don Webb said. Davis first joined the Raiders as head coach in 1963, ascended to general manager three years later and became Oakland’s principal owner in 1972. Remaining in charge of on-field personnel decisions, Davis built one of the best franchises in the NFL,...
