Video Shows Sacked Skins Coach Sauced In Saratoga
Following an embarrassing drubbing at the hands of the Patriots, and an 0-5 start to this NFL season, the Washington Redskins have fired their head coach Jay Gruden. This comes after a video surfaced of Gruden showing the embattled coach, alleged to be in Saratoga at the time, smoking weed or a cigarette while trying to pick up some much younger women.
Gruden, 50 when the video was filmed, is seen on the ground outside of a Saratoga Springs nightclub talking to a girl much younger than him when the sloppy incident occurred. While there's a chance that no crime is actually committed here, it's not very good optics for an NFL head coach and some are wondering if the Redskins leaked the video to further their case for the firing. As Redskins head coach, Gruden's record was 35-49-1; not exactly stellar by anyone's measurement.
Dave Portnoy, founder of Barstool Sports alleges that he's had the video for quite some time and that it indeed from Saratoga a place Portnoy visits every Summer during the track season.
