1. Jon Gruden’s Emails (2021)

Former Raiders head coach Gruden rocked the NFL when his incredible emails emerged. The league investigated WFT President Bruce Allen but uncovered Gruden’s slimy communications. He used racist, homophobic, and sexist slurs throughout his exchanges with various notable football personalities. As a result, Gruden opted to resign from his role with the Raiders (via Sporting News).

It was incredible because Raiders star Carl Nassib became the first active NFL player to come out a few months before. Meanwhile, Gruden also exchanged photos of scantily-clad women with Allen. Furthermore, the racist language was even more shocking because of the tense atmosphere in the United States. It was a ludicrous one but not all that surprising.
