Ice Cube in Alameda, Nnamdi a spectator

O’Shea Jackson, or the artist better known as Ice Cube, was a spectator at Raiders practice Tuesday.

CEO Amy Trask said he is working on a few projects with the club.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is not practicing, and emerged from the facility to the field not in uniform. Also not practicing were cornerback/return specialist Justin Miller (turf toe), running back Justin Fargas (hamstring), safety Rashad Baker (stinger) and safety Michael Huff (quad).

Center John Wade, who practiced for the first time since the Dallas game Monday and still in contention to start, according to Tom Cable was not with the offensive line as they went through drills.

Safety Mike Mitchell, who said he could be returning to practice with another good rehab session, was going through cone drills with a member of the athletic training staff. Kirk Morrison (elbow) was also working to the side.

Returning to practice was linebacker Slade Norris (calf).

Ice Cube has been working on a documentary on the Los Angeles Raiders for ESPN detailing their influence in hip hop culture.

    yea i get it Dakota.it’s whether YOU deem the player exceptional or not,just like it is whether you deem a coaching candidate appropriate or not.we needed DHB more than we needed Mac.and you don’t know whether or not he will be special.from the looks of things he is what was needed for this offense to have any chance of succeeding.while it could be said we have replacements for Chaz-Murphy,Walker-who would take DHBs place if he were injured?

  • RaiderRockstar

    I remember when Ice Cube did that song ‘Bop Gun’ with George “P Funk” Clinton …

    Very nice.

    A 2nd round pick either of the last two years for the O or D line would have worked out a lot better than Mike Mitchell and Deangelo Hall.

    Nnamdi says he’s playing in opener. Not even a question
    3 minutes ago from PockeTwit

    That’s great new!

  • RaiderRockstar

    * Nnamdi Asomugha has wrist fracture, cartilage damage, but won’t miss opener.

    * Turns out Ice Cube is a huge Raiders fan. He’s working on an undisclosed project with the Raiders.

    ________________________

    That’s correct Lefty it is my opinion, which is what I express on this board…part of being a fan is that you get to question the moves your team makes…especially when they are setting records for futility…and PS, McFadden is about the only reason to tune into a Raiders game right now…and from what it looks like thus far, DHB could be replaced by James Jett.

    Heres my rhyme again biotches, in case you missed the sh*t the first time y’all:

    the Raiders are bound to go 0-16
    the most dysfunctional family that I ever have seen
    cant tackle cant catch cant passa the ball
    that old fuka mista Davis has seen it all
    but his time has passed and his team is wack
    anyone thinks they make the playoffs must be smokin crack

  • lefty12

    no,Dakota.i remember every day,many times a day i’d see posts-Dakota says-McFadden,McFadden,McFadden………….the funny thing is,i now believe we went about it the proper way.if we had taken just linemen and ignored the skill positions we’d be the same place we are today except our needs would be different.we all knew the team was terrible before 2007.the problem is,too many expected the team to right itself after 1 or 2 drafts.we now have our skill players-next we can focus on the trenches,but to expect it to happen overnight was being too optimistic.patience is a virtue.

    Nmamdi’s injury is very similar to what Hall had last preseason, right? He ain’t missing any games.

    From Clue H:

    The Raiders have sucked ever since every kid at my middle school bought a gigantic Raiders Starter jacket to imitate Eazy-E. I lived in a lily-white town in Arizona. I guess the Raiders logo was supposed to lend toughness. But wearing a Starter jacket when it’s 108 degrees outside only lends stupidity.

    Which brings me to the Black Hole. Every time the Raiders are on television (so, only if you have Sunday Ticket), the announcers pimp the Black Hole, saying things like “don’t get caught in there wearing a (insert visiting team name) jersey!” Does everyone somehow miss that the Black Hole consists of grown men who paint their faces and wear elaborate homemade costumes? The black hole is one step away from a KISS cover band. Or a local theater production of Cats. Is it supposed to be terrifying that a middle-aged man with a personal seat license looks like Papa Shango? Will I actually be murdered by a plumbing contractor if I jeer JaMarcus Russell throwing it behind another receiver? The answer is no. Fuck the Black Hole. The only thing scary about your team is that people still attend games. And Al Davis, because he’s undead. And perhaps Tom Cable, but they haven’t proved that yet.

    And Peelsmiller:

    I have a huge raiders fan that sits in front of me at work and he is actually from upstate NY. That’s gay enough as it is. (Ed. Note: Agreed. The Raider tend to have a lot of carpetbagger fans.) He came into work the day after they beat the Cowboys 31-10, in the preseason opener, grinning from ear to ear like he just got away with killing a
    hooker. We all know it was a preseason game but this wrinkled scrotal bag was jumping around the office like they just won the fuckin Super Bowl. It made me physically sick to listen to him rant about how “the Black Hole is back.” He was ready to offer contract extensions to every player and coach on the team. I wonder what it’s like to root for such a mediocre team that you celebrate a preseason win by practically making a fake Lombardi trophy out of tin foil. I know we are in a recession and all that shit but I was seriously contemplating giving up my job and just kneeing him in the cock……..is it bad to wish cancer on someone?

    I would love one of these guys to say something bad about the Raiders at a bar or game

  • lefty12

    Jett was nowhere near the player DHB is.granted everyone is entitled to their opinions and this board allows people to voice them.you,however,never seem to accept others opinions yet want everyone to go along with yours.you act as if your opinion is gospel and ridicule others if their opinion differs from yours,or you just make sarcastic remarks about others statements.

    Richochet, your turn. Give me one example of ESPN bungling an NFL report. They rarely do it. You can argue using sarcasm and ridicule all you want, because you know you have no argument to refute my point. Weak.
    ========================
    Wow..are you naive’, or what?

    John Clayton, alone, is responsible for HUNDREDS of false, made up stories..where he states “my sources tell me that it’s a guarantee he’ll never sign with his team. He wants his release”..only to have the SAME GUY report how so and so just signed a record contract, and act as if he not only knew it all along, but that his previous report is now non-existent.

    ESPN is KNOWN for making up crap, and then contradicting themselves, and be quite happy doing so.

    They KNOW they do it. They also KNOW that without them making up things..(THAT JUST MIGHT COME TRUE) they would basically have very little to discuss.

    Yes, twaddle..that’s how it’s done.

    You release a “this just in”..it now becomes headline news, at least on their site..their discussion forums will now go into it in detail, sometimes for days, or weeks..and it’s all a hypothetical.

    Lefty12,

    Man, I was drinking the kool-aid prior to last season…talking up Cable as the o-line coach and how I am sure he could make Kwame Harris a player and how we were maybe going to make the playoffs blah blah blah…

    ….so I haven’t always been doom and gloom. I just got a bad bad feeling about this year and if I don’t express it now, I may end up shooting up the local Kum & Go after another losing season.

    Told you already..don’t “think”. Everytime you do, it’s like a first time occurence, and you go through the learning curve.

    Chargers are going to kick the Raiders ass..and if what you say is true, what does that say about the Raiders?

  • Noshadowking

    I think all of us would like to keep getting our hopes up every year and a lot of us do but seriously until the draft we have all been waiting for which means o-line and d-line only getting drafted we still have a ways to go. That being said we can be competetive this year but our defense still needs a lot of work guys
