Ex-Raiders president claims he was fired for reporting grievances about a hostile work environment
Ventrelle says in his statement that he reached out to team owner Mark Davis about the complaints, but says he was “dismissive and didn’t show the right level of concern.” He says he then went to the NFL with the complaints and was subsequently fired by the Raiders.
That Las Vegas Review Journal turned to Davis, who declined to comment on Ventrelle’s allegations.
“I’ve heard of[Ventrelle’s]testimony, but I’m not going to comment on it,” Davis said. “The only thing I want to clarify is that Dan Ventrelle was never president of the Raiders. He was always the interim president. He was never made president. The interim was always a temporary determination to determine whether or not he would be the (full-time) president. I want to be clear – he’s not the president of the Las Vegas Raiders. it never was I think there is a misunderstanding.”
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the team through ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez that they “recently became aware of these allegations and take them very seriously. We will investigate the matter immediately.”
Ventrelle was named team president last July after Marc Badain’s team took over. Prior to that, Ventrelle had been with the organization since 2003, serving as general counsel and executive vice president.
