Teh Raiders are still you're team Al but it's time for you to bring a Scott Pioli-type to do a complete overhaul.

Wow, teams are really cleaning house lately.

Worst kept secret since HHH being the partner?

This may wind up having an impact on the college ranks as well, as Syracuse's AD has already said that "if" the Orange make a coaching change (read: "when we finally take Greg Robinson out back and put him out of his misery once and for all") Kiffin would be a candidate to take the job, as he and Daryl Gross, the Syracuse AD, both worked together at USC.

The bigger story here is that Al Davis is going to refuse to pay the rest of Kiffin's contract. If that's the case, Kiffin will probably take this case to court to try and recoup the money owed to him. This story is far from over.

Al Davis is giving a PowerPoint presentation on why he fired Kiffen. This is not a joke, you can't make this up. I think Al may have some screws loose.

Apparently according to Al, he told Kiffin to stop lying about things within the organization, and if he was doing anything EXCEPT coaching football players, he'd be fired.

Come to Denver, Kiffin. Shanahan can groom you to be his replacement in a few years.

Tom Cable, the offensive line coach, has been tapped as the interim head coach.

It's too bad Al Davis has shit all over his legacy with his craziness. Although if Davis is just going to be a loon he should do it in front of the camera more often.

Just listening to Kiffin talking on Sportscenter, it looks like this battle with him and Al Davis is going to get really ugly, really soon.

I hope Lane Kiffin has an Excel spreadsheet ready.

I cant tell how far Al threw Lane Kiffin under the bus, but I'm sure he had enough time to drain and replace the transmission fluid while he was down there.

That was a BRUTAL press conference.

Is there any other organization in professional sports that's a bigger joke than the Raiders?

Until a few months ago the Knickerbockers. Until a week ago the Lions. Peter Angelos and Family have done a wonderful job the last decade somehow making baseball irrelevant in Baltimore, so they have to be in the running. And, as long as they hold the Elgin Baylor Day Parade in lovely Secaucus, Donald Sterling of the Clippers needs mention.
Someone really needs to take Al Davis to the nursing home to 'visit' a former player and just leave him there.
Can't really feel sympathy for Kiffin though, since he should have known what he was getting into.

Knicks: I would have agreed if Isiah Thomas was still on the payroll. Now I say no.

Lions: I would have agreed if Matt Millen was still on the payroll. Now I say no.

Orioles: Agreed with this team being more irrelevant than a joke.

Clippers: Would have agreed until 2005 happened. Since the year they made the Conference Finals, Donald Sterling has sincerely tried to make a contender out of this team. Unlucky? Sure. Joke? No way.

Right now, no one can compete with the Raiders for sheer incompetence and total misery. The Rams could come close in the future, with the path they're treading. But right now, it isn't close.

The Raiders went to the super bowl 5 years ago.

Just to toss some ideas out there: Seattle Mariners? Oklahoma City Thunder? San Fransisco 49ers? Kansas City Royals? Memphis Grizzlies?

Yeah, the Raiders did go all the way, but they also went on age. And lost that game. Since then, are there any players left from the '02 Raiders still on the Raiders, let alone in the league?

The only team worse than the Raiders in the span since the Superbowl loss was the Lions.

Al Davis really needs a voice of sanity among his advisors to reign in his nutty, but sadly rich people find yes men all too easy to come by.

The Raiders had actually shown signs of life the last couple weeks as well (although only for 3 quarters per Sunday).

Is there any other organization in professional sports that's a bigger joke than the Raiders?

Yes.

Allow me to introduce you to Heart of Midlothian Football Club. Their owner (Vladimir Romanov) makes Al Davis look positively well grounded and reserved.

I could probably find a thousand examples of his wackiness, but this (newsgroups.derkeiler.com) statement he directed to the media is some of his finest work.

Anything that begins "Dear Monkeys", ends "I beg you Mowgli, take the monkeys back to the safari park" and along the way compares referees to a woman who "gives herself without love" probably isn't going to enhance the reputation of your organisation.

Scottish soccer may be crappy, but it's also a whole lot more fun since Vlad came on the scene.

Is he related to the Ultimate Warrior?
