Hanson Will Talk to Police


After an attempt to negotiate with Al Davis to get his coaching job back failed, Randy Hanson decided to cooperate with police. At least that is the story out of the National Football Post this afternoon. A civil case is also expected.

That is dirty. Blackmailing your employer with threat of legal action unless they do what you want them to do.

Although I can't condone Cable throwing the guy out of his chair, you have to wonder what kind of person does something dirty like this.

Think about it, he wanted back on Cable's staff. Would you want to be on the coaching staff of a guy that broke your jaw because he hated your guts? No, you wouldn't. You would have taken one of Al Davis' offers. Probably the one where you don't have to work, but maybe you like to work and take the front office job.

Hanson knows that it wasn't a big deal, but now it will be a bigger deal. He knew he was in the driver seat, either the team gives him what he wants or they get what they really don't want.

There is a fatal flaw in Hanson's plan, everyone now knows him now. Guys that sue their employer aren't hired many places after that. He will be hard pressed to get another job. He better hope his civil case is air tight.

Even if his civil case is solid, no telling if he will get a dime from Al Davis. Davis had the balls to sue the NFL and won. He surrounds himself with lawyers, good ones.

It is hard to believe the source in Lombardi's article isn't Hanson himself. Who else would know that he hung up on Al Davis, did he take the phone call in a conference room?

Hanson like Kiffin is using the media against Al Davis. Knowing the way the Raiders operate, it is almost too easy. Just get the negative information out, the Raiders are never going to respond to it.

As I said before, don't condone Cable's actions (if they happened like we have heard), but in the real world, despite laws, if you run your mouth, better be willing to back it up.

No one likes a guy that runs his mouth all the time. Everyone wants to shut him up.

Shut up Randy Hanson, cause your not making any friends. Expect for maybe in the media, because you are padding their pocketbook.

Oakland Raiders Swing for the Fences in 2016 NFL Draft

[embed align="center"]http://gty.im/153039819[/embed] These aren't your daddy's Oakland Raiders or even your younger self's Raiders. If anything, these are your newborn's Raiders or your puppy's Raiders. These are the Raiders we've never seen before. Indicative of the freshness of the franchise was their 2016 NFL Draft. No longer slave to a high draft pick and desperate needs, the theme of the draft for the Raiders was upside. It's as if general manager Reggie McKenzie got so used to hitting his draft picks out of the park that he started swinging for the fences. We'll have to wait a couple of years before we know if he struck out or if he'll continue his Ruthian ways. First, McKenzie boldly went with a safety at No. 14 overall. Kyle Joseph is coming off a torn ACL and fills a major need, but safety isn't a premium position. Only a handful of safeties have been drafted in the first 14 picks in the last 15 years and include names like Ea

Looking Forward: Raiders 2012 Free Agents

Khalif Barnes - Weakest link on the offensive line with youth behind him. Raiders will look for for other options. It's not as if there aren't a dozen Khalif's on the street each year. Darryl Blackstock - Was a Chuck Bresnahan guy, but found a home on special teams. Would have to make the team as a reserve LB and special teams guy next training camp. Wouldn't be surprised to see him back as a camp body or gone entirely. Kyle Boller - Hue didn't have enough confidence to turn to Boller. Expect the Raiders to look elsewhere for a backup to Carson Palmer. Jerome Boyd - Was nothing more than a reserve and special teams player. Some good moments and some very bad ones. Camp body again and fate will depend on the defensive coordinator. Tyvon Branch - About the only consistent producer in the secondary. Raiders will want to bring him back. Desmond Bryant - He's been great in limited action and can play inside and out. Key reserve. Michael Bush - He'll find a home a

Pryor Will Successfully Appeal Suspension

It is common belief that Terrelle Pryor was suspended five games by the NFL because of his miss steps at Ohio State. This is simply untrue. Terrelle Pryor was suspended five games for not following the rules of the supplemental draft entry process. Pryor hired Drew Rosenhaus before he was ruled ineligible for the first five games at Ohio State. Based on the rules of the supplemental draft Pryor should have been ineligible for entry. The power of the media and his agent put the league in a tough position. Instead of doing what they should have done and forced Pryor to sit for a year, the NFL allowed his entry while trying to appear tough. There are basically two arguments Pryor will be able to make to get the suspension lifted. 1) The NFL is punishing Pryor because they chose to not follow their own rules. There is no precedent or rule that allows for any such suspension. 2) The five-game suspension is the NFL is punishing Pryor for his college mistakes. This is also unprecedented. The
