After linebacker Vontaze Burfict modified into ejected from last Sunday’s sport for delivering a helmet-to-helmet hit to Colts tight stay Jack Doyle whereas Doyle modified into on one knee after a resolve, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden known as it a tricky resolution and appeared upset that “nobody on the self-self-discipline in our stadium or on this zip code made the decision to eject him.”
That decision bought right here from NFL senior vp of officiating Al Riveron from the league workplace and so did the choice to stoop Burfict for the comfort of the standard season. NFL vp of soccer operations Jon Runyan made that decision and Gruden mentioned from London on Wednesday that he’s aired his grievances with that decision over the ultimate couple of days.
“I’m not actually going to assert the comfort,” Gruden mentioned, through Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. “I’ve talked to Runyan inside the league workplace, he’s conscious of how I really feel. It hurts our workforce actually tainted. And I’m anxious to study what the appeal says. I’m not overjoyed about it. In any respect. And I don’t are searching to assert the comfort else about it. I’m clearly upset about it.”
Burfict had a earlier 5-sport suspension for illegal hits knocked all of the scheme during which right down to only a few video video games on appeal, so the Raiders might presumably presumably moreover get him wait on at some stage this season. They acquired’t have him in opposition to the Bears this weekend, on the other hand, and it’s positive that doesn’t sit proper with Gruden.
