    Mr. Pinata dont you have anything else better to do? I gotta give it to you. You have the thickest online skin of anybody. I mean you get whacked on here even more often than a pinata but like an energizer bunny you come back for more time and again.

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    Typical Maddenliar logic, if it’s postive about the Raiders its a lie…Hey dummy, Seymour’s story makes sense, Cable said he wanted to be here, Seymour confirmed that. Again, how did Cable lie? Hell, if that fat uneducated Warren Sapp spews crap about us, he’s always 100% correct right? You’re so desperate and stupid at the same time it’s unreal.

    “First of all, I was blindsided by this whole event,” Seymour told the Herald. “When you get blindsided, you should take a moment to gather your thoughts. I have a lot of personal issues more pressing than football.”

    Seymour has four children and is the guardian of a 15-year-old cousin, who had recently joined him in the Boston area. Seymour’s family will return to South Carolina, while he flies to Oakland on Saturday to join his new team.

    Seymour said he has been in regular contact with Raiders owner Al Davis and coach Tom Cable. He said he has talked with the Raiders about a possible contract extension or a promise not to be designated the franchise player following the season, but was given no guarantees.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Mr. Seymour, thank you for putting your family first!

  • r8dr4lfe21

    Funny when the truth comes out the haters leave.
    See it’s so easy to hate when were down, but the true fans get all the benefits when we rise again, and we shall.

    dont forget that Seymour’s wife is his highschool gf and they have never been separated. I dont know about you guys but I moved from the Bayarea to Memphis, TN last year for my wife’s med school. It is a big decision and it took us months to contemplate it. This guy is blinded sided with 6 days and the haters are trying to spin it other ways…

  • RaiderKen, what’s Seymour supposed to say now? He’s on the team, he’s cool now, he’ll be here. Of course he’s not going to say, now, that he doesn’t want to play in Oakland. But when a guy doesn’t show up for a week, and the reason he gives is that he was “blind sided”, it’s pretty obvious to anyone who’s not in utter denial. He did not want to be here when the trade took place. That is obvious. He was awol, and and refusing to show up (Your idol Al Davis sent him a letter giving him 5 days to report. Did he send Seymore that warning because Seymour wanted to be here?). During that time, Cable said that Seymour wanted to be here, and it was a lie. ESPN did not lie once throughout this ordeal. The Raiders did.

    PFT won’t leave the Raider’s alone. Trying to stir trouble:
    Javon Walker, Raiders disagree about readiness
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 12, 2009 3:53 PM ET
    Nothing is ever simple with Javon Walker, especially since he’s joined the Raiders.

    Despite being active on their roster, Walker hasn’t been listed of late on the team’s depth chart. And Oakland coach Tom Cable is sitting him in Week One, saying Walker is “not quite ready.”

    Walker disagrees, believing he is 100%.

    On most teams, this would be a big story considering the Raiders guaranteed Walker’s 2009 salary before the oft-injured receiver underwent a “secret” surgery.

    In Oakland, it’s just another surprising story. It looked like Walker was the team’s third receiver to open September, but something has apparently changed in the meantime.

    With Chaz Schillens out, the Raiders are expected to start two rookie wide receivers: Darrius Heyward-Bey and Louis Murphy.

    Meanwhile, the man who signed a “$55 million” contract just a year ago will be watching from the sidelines.

  • r8dr4lfe21

    He did say blind sided, but he also said family witch is bigger then anything else in his life. See when the truth comes out you’re still negative. I guess negativity is the only way your happy.

  • Ahhh yeah, he’ll say he grew up a Raider Fan, blah, blah, blah…..

  • For those of you who still think Seymour wanted to be here all along, and that the media and the haters were lying all of this time….why did Al Davis warn Seymour that he had 5 days to report, or he would be suspended without pay?

  • No More Infield or Trolls

    mr go kick a puppy or tease a little kid or something you old grump!

  • BTW, guys, when it comes to the intentions of Richard Seymour, Tom Cable is a FAR better source than Rodney Harrison…

  • RaiderKen

    Madden Raider
    What ever you obviously missed the quote “And I told them that” That’s all he said it didn’t have to say it. All he had to say is I’m happy to be where someone wants me. But no He said “and I told them that” Get it? And another thing if he was so discruntled why didn’t he take the whole 5 days?

  • itzSteve

    What a great day to be a Bay Area sports fan!

    Seymour reporting today…
    Dany Heatley traded to the Sharks for Cheechoo and Michalek…

  • r8dr4lfe21

    You’re a spin doctor i see, the letter was never ment as a threat. It is procedure in the NFL, they said there was no letter. If there were a letter then he is reporting early cause the letter was sent on the 10th.

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    Harrison said “he wasn’t thrilled” but he DIDN’T say what he wasn’t thrilled about. According to Seymour, the transition of moving his family is WHAT he wasn’t thrilled about…By the way dumbazz, Seymour backs up Cable’s statement so how did he lie?

  • RaiderKen

    Madden Raider who cares about speculation. We are talking about facts and you brought up the Cable is a liar. Let’s review again all I said was Cable said Seymour wants to be a Raider and today it was confirmed by Seymour himself the he told the Raiders that. So again Where is the lie?

  • You guys, let’s assume he’s really having family issues, that he just wanted to iron out personal issues, what have you. Why couldn’t he just call Al Davis and tell him that? Al is a reputed players’ owner. Al would have understood that. The reason Al sent him the 5 day warning is because Seymour was telling the Raiders to pound sand, and you guys know it. But keep blaming ESPN for doing their job and reporting on what’s as obvious as the sky being blue.

  • RaiderKen

    Stop your posting too fast. Go get bent!

  • r8dr4lfe21

    Despite his late arrival, Seymour said he plans to be on the field for Oakland’s opener Monday night against San Diego.

    “I’ll be the guy on top of the quarterback,” he said.

  • You guys are in utter denial. Al gave him a 5 day warning. You don’t give guys warnings when they’re on good terms. Al is a players’ owner. There’s no way he would shun Seymour’s request for a little bit off time due to personal issues. Al’s the last owner that would be that strict, particularly to a player. Al sent him the warning because Seymour had made it clear to the Raiders, to the media, and to the entire world pretty much that he had no intentions whatsoever of showing up in Oakland. He was t’d off about the trade because they traded him to Oakland. That’s why Al drew the line in the sand. Al would not have done that if were even remotely convinced that Seymour actually wanted to be here, but was just held up with family issues. You guys are lying to yourselves. That’s all you’re doing.

  • Of course they’ll get their story straight, all’s good.

  • Sure, guys. Al sent Seymour the warning letter because Seymour wanted to be here all along. Al Davis, the players’ owner. I believe it. I’m gullible, too.

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    Lying to ourselves? Everything about of your mouth is an effing lie.

  • r8dr4lfe21

    So basically you’re calling Seymour a liar?
    I’m a man and i dont let others speak for me i speak for myself. All the negative reports and not once did you hear anything from Seymour or Davis, see they dont have to impress you or me or the media. Harrison has a new job he had to make a splash so he opened his mouth.

    i was just getting to post that…

  • AZ Raider

    WTF are we arguing about here? Who cares what PR spin anyone put on any statement? Fact is he;s a Raider.

  • r8dr4lfe21

    that quote alone has me pumped up for monday night.

  • RaiderKen

    I just hope he is ready to play Monday night, and by that I mean know the vanilla assignments. Can it be that hard? Serious question can he do it?

  • r8dr4lfe21

    The fact is he is a Raider Amen AZ.
    Are they talking about Deon Sanders maybe getting fined for speaking on behalf of Crabtree. Saying there are 2 team interested in a trade and 1 being the Cowboys, there calling it tampering oh oh.

  • Haters-B-Gone

    Seymour is a Raider and will soon have a long term contract. There is no way Al will bring him here for one year. He might be a little crazy but hes not that crazy..He will get a 3yr deal..

  • Al Davis Jr.

    Madden raider just leave this blog , do you feel special that youve alienated everyone in your life that you have to come to a raider “fan” blog?

  • R8ter4life

    Hey Real MasterBaiter….oh I mean MaddenRaider what’s your real team? Whiners? Chokers? I’m sure ESPN didn’t intentional lie this whole week but they certainly perpetrated some ridiculously sad reporting. You would think by now they would do some research and get their facts straight before airing the vomit they call news. Oh and go fock yourself. Leave Raiders blogs to Raiders fans troll.

  • Raider kENN

    IS THIS ON TV ??????

  • dtrain

    I’m hoping it is on TV I haven’t found anything yet though. Maybe on ESPN News???


    “I’ll be the one on top of the quarterback”!!!

    Welcome Seymour!!!

    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • lameraiderssuck4life

    LMAO! Al Davis had to threatened Seymour just to get him to show up. LOL! Gotta love those Raiders. That tells you how much the Raiders are respected around the league. The only thing worse than the Raiders are the fans that support them from home, or from the parking lot. You guys love them but not enough to buy a ticket. What makes you guys think that Seymour would want to report to a loser organization coming from one of the top 3 organizations in the league. You think Randy Moss didn’t tell him what was up or Lamont Jordan. The second he found out he was traded I guarantee you he thought about all the crazy things Moss and Jordan told him about the Raiders. I actually feel sorry for Richard Seymour. He needs to just make it through this year of hell. I’m really looking forward to watching the Chargers, Raiders game. I love how all those idiots,losers, I mean Raider fans dress all up with full gear and makeup. Then at the end of a blow out loss they look so sad like they really had a chance. Chargers 31-Raiders 10, that’s my prediction. Oh yeah there will be about 5 holding calls, 6 false starts, and 2 unsportsmanlike conduct calls. On the Raiders of course. Hey at least the Raiders are decent on Madden 10, I’ll give them that.
