Complete opposite. In this day and age you think any public figure is going to keep their job with using that homophobic slur? No way possible. Add in all the other stuff, If Goodell was best friends with Gruden he couldn't have saved him. If insulting the commish was all he did, he'd still be on the sideline.Make no mistake Gruden is gone because of what he said about Goodell.
Goodell doesn’t care what he said about Smith or the homophobic comments.
Gruden is gone because the league office couldn’t stand for anyone insulting the commissioner.
That is it. If Gruden didn’t insult Goodell he survives this.
