The Jon Gruden Experience

This episode is not really about Jon Gruden, whom John Shoop worked for with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2004.  It isn't really about Bruce Allen either, who was the general manager of that team.  It isn't about the email exchanges between Gruden and Allen that were recently revealed that led to Gruden's resignation as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders on October 11th, 2021.  They're all just actors in the play.  This episode of Going Deep is really about the characteristics of white supremacy culture, as defined by Tema Okun.
