Jon Gruden Still Hates Officials
You can take Jon Gruden out of the NFL, but you can't take disgust towards football officials out of Jon Gruden.
Gruden, an assistant coach at Carrollwood Day School in Tampa, recently incurred a 15-yard penalty for chewing out officials, according to JoeBucsFan.com
The penalty took place in the first quarter of the team's season opener. Gruden watched the rest of the game from the stands after choosing to remove himself from the sidelines.
"Whether or not it was his celebrity, I don't know, but the officials made the call," Carrollwood Day School athletic director Frank Mabry said. "I was right there myself. In all honesty, he was upset with the officials and he did receive a sideline penalty and a warning, but it was definitely overblown."
Gruden reportedly kept yelling at officials from the stands, calling one "Forrest Gump."
I could make some statement about sportsmanship here, but the image of Gruden crushing some high school ref cracks me up. Just a coach just trying to stay in game shape.

I loved listening to him yell at the officials from the booth on MNF. It cracked me up.

You gotta love Gruden.

The funniest thing is the way he acts whenever there is a close play involving a QB fumble. He always finds a way to work in there in his own subtle way how the "tuck rule" screwed the Raiders.

I didn't think much of him as a head coach, but I have to be honest -- if they fired Mularkey and hired Gruden as the OC, I wouldn't be upset with it.
Seriously doubt he'd take a non-HC job, but still.

I think Gruden becomes the next Madden... he's the most entertaining personality MNF has had in a long time.

I agree with Gruden most of the time. He hates when the refs mess with the game. Let them play.
Mora is a joke though. Sorry, I will mute him in the future. he just wants someone to love him.
