Raiders team president claims he was fired after he filed complaints to the NFL about female employees being harassed by Owner Mark Davis

Trouble in Las Vegas!

Las Vegas Raiders fired their team president today and just an hour after the firing happened, Dan Ventrelle released his own statement.

“Today, Mark Davis terminated my employment as President of the Las Vegas Raiders,” Ventrelle said. “I have committed almost 18 years of my life to the success of the Raiders as General Counsel and President. I take that responsibility very seriously, which is why multiple written complaints from employees that Mark created a hostile work environment and engaged in other potential misconduct caused me grave concern.

“When Mark was confronted about these issues, he was dismissive and did not demonstrate the warranted level of concern. Given this, I informed the NFL of these issues and of Mark’s unacceptable response.

“Soon thereafter, I was fired in retaliation for raising these concerns. I firmly stand by my decision to elevate these issues to protect the organization and its female employees. I remain committed to doing everything in my power to support the Raiders and the Las Vegas community I now call home. I have retained counsel and will have no further comment at this time.”

This is going to get ugly, the Raiders do not want to mess with Ventrelle who is an 18-year veteran and also on the teams general council. This could get ugly for Davis.
