    My last hope…the NFL doesn’t tolerate bumping into QBs, so Cable bumping into a coach who then hit Hanson and then Cable grabbing Hanson’s shirt while he was down might be enough for a life-time suspension of Cable as a HC…from now on he will only be allowed to coach the o-line!

  • Mistabrown

    Jerry you’re posting blog entries too fast please slow down, thanks

  • big chill

    Now they can focus on football, i knew that hanson was a dweeb anyway look at his picture, he looks like a tweeker

  • alisgod

    another good thing to happen to the Raiders this week. Get this distraction out of the way and we move on to the Jets.

    So sorry again to the DA disappointed you Dakotex.

    Your statement on 10/22 at 3:29pm is we play better at home fistabrown. Squirming as usual??? Why don’t you go get some feel good support from your girlfriend rack-ette?

  • alisgod

    Mrs.

    You HAD respect for the Raiders prior to this announcement?

  • Mistabrown

    Big Chill,
    Cable & Kiffin wanted no part of Hanson but AL forced him on them both, whos the dweeb ?

  • LA to TheBay

    “Can we get the Napa DA’s ffice to start reffing our games?”

    LMFAO!!!!!!

    With that, I’m out, Nation.

    Be good.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Romo is on comcast sports right now boasting, even saying that he told cable he should have called him for backup. Napa Co.’s DA office just let a thug walk free. Shameful.

    Hanson’s attorney:

    “This is sad for the citizens”.

    Here, here.

  • Ryan

    Wow! This came from Adam Schefter:

    “For over two months, Tom Cable had mud thrown at him — unnecessarily. Two sides to every story, and ultimately, Hanson’s wasn’t believable.”

    BSPN just might fire him for this…

  • big chill

    Al Davis is the dweeb. but we all know that.

  • Ghost87

    Actually, thanks to NFL.COM I prefer blackouts. With the regular broadcast I have to set extra record time on my DVR, have to fast forward through commercials, and the recording is in standard definition.

    With a blackout I get the entire game commercial free in HD the next day.

  • Not a Raider fan

    Can they at least arrest the owner, a few players and some other coaches?

  • 17 Bob Trey O

    “Based on our review, it appears that during a discussion amongst coaches and Mr. Cable regarding Mr. Hanson’s future with the Oakland Raiders, Mr. Cable became angry and rushed toward Mr. Hanson.” That would have been fun to listen to. One rat down the drain.

  • No More Infield or Trolls

    Hanson is a little queefer… Cable is the man… No more distractions… as Al, or whoever, said, Just Win Baby!

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    I have next to no respect for the Raiders organization right now. A band of thugs. Ran by a senile owner who doesn’t know how to win. Their bad karma will continue to cloud their future. What a disgusting organization. Until Al Davis is out of football operations, I’m laughing at this team’s failures. Say what you want to. Say I’m not a real fan. Like I care. I’ll be a real fan again when Al is gone.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    No more distractions? Are you nuts? This is the Raiders. That ghoul Al Davis is a constant distraction.

  • Mistabrown

    Oakglen,
    You cannot stop yourself from looking like a mental retard…

    I said we play better @ home when blacked out….GET OVER IT! I didnt guarantee a win. I didnt say we win 100% of the time, you are trying to make something of nothing and this blog I’m sure is tired of your rants with me and Richochet so go get some medicine and enjoy the rest of your day!

    Fuktarrrrrrd!

    —————————————————

    Say fista, you said we play better at home when we are blacked out. I conveniently pointed out that we just lost a couple of weeks back 23-3 when we were blacked out. And you’re now calling others mental retards??? Fista, you need a new hobby. Try helping the elderly. They are more your speed.

  • Not a Raider fan

    Since Cable is such a good rusher, why doesn’t he suit up and play on Sunday? He could really break some jaws then.

  • No More Infield or Trolls

    You’re not a real fan MR, you’re a queefer too like hanson… Don’t let the door hit you on your ass on the way out…

    the Raiders will give Jets there fourth loss in a row… a mofo can dream can’t i

    No more infield, you’re right, I’m not a real fan, as long as Al’s here. And what do you mean let the door hit me on the way out? I’m not going anywhere. Are you going to make me leave? I’d like to see you try that.

  • alisgod

    Since when is Mrs. Brown a Raider fan. LMFAO when guys like Dude, Dakotex, Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Madden call themselves Raider fans…when they can’t handle any positives for the team.

  • dt_raiders

    Black eyes for Yahoo Sports. I thought Michael Silver’s Hanson interview piece was too much one-sided and did not question Hanson harder. All along, our Jerry McDonald was correct in not slinging the mud like the rest of the sports media world. Make my admiration for Jerry goes up even more.

  • Mistabrown

    Oakglen I said we play better @ home when blacked out and we beat Philly 13-9.

    You have spent the following week trying to convince everybody in here I made a stupid comment….lmao

    It’s in the constitution dude. You have the right to silence. You do not have to talk to ANY law enforcement. Cable would have had to criminal indict himself for this to move forward. he didn’t. Jeez.

    You are exactly right. Silver absolutely hates the Raiders. It was sad that he was trying his best to keep this case in the spotlight to force the DA to arrest Cable

    Don’t flatter yourself. I don’t have to convince anyone of anything. You consistently prove on a daily basis what a moronic zero you are. Everyone seems to get it but you. That’s the best part. Now take Brady Quinns dik out your ass.

    MR’s love is expressed to Randy Hanson

    How can i just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace
    When i stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
    You’re the only one who really knew me at all

    How can you just walk away from me,
    When all i can do is watch you leave
    Cos we’ve shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears
    You’re the only one who really knew me at all

    So take a look at me now, oh there’s just an empty space
    And there’s nothing left here to remind me,
    Just the memory of your face
    Ooh take a look at me now, well there’s just an empty space
    And you coming back to me is against all odds and that’s what i’ve got to face

    I wish i could just make you turn around,
    Turn around and see me cry
    There’s so much i need to say to you,
    So many reasons why
    You’re the only one who really knew me at all

    So take a look at me now, well there’s just an empty space
    And there’s nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
    Now take a look at me now, cos there’s just an empty space

    But to wait for you, is all i can do and that’s what i’ve got to face
    Take a good look at me now, cos i’ll still be standing here
    And you coming back to me is against all odds
    It’s the chance i’ve gotta take

    Take a look at me now

    MR current heroes, Lane Kiffin and Randy Hanson. They have lost the battle to condemn the Raider Organization forever.

    It must be sad to see MR cry right now, let’s all give him a group hug.

    MR why don’t you sign up for a Facebook site and have Kiffin and Hansen as your only buddys.

  • Ryan

    Who’s the suspect? Cable? It was the alleged victim who wouldn’t talk. Cable was never asked to talk and did talk when asked.

    oakglenn, that’s not my point. I know it’s in the constitution. My point was, if you can pay attention this time around: When is the last time you’ve seen a DA decline to press charges when the suspect refuses to talk?

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Oakglenn, go ahead and take your time. When you can think of the last time a DA declined to press charges in an assault case, where hospital records proved a jaw was broken and the DA also knew there was a heated exchange, and the suspect refused to talk, I’m all ears. Total sham. What we got today was a reminder of how much a joke our justice system is. And how much of a joke the Raiders are. Of course, the latter will continue on throughout the year, beginning Sunday.

  • snnyjcbs

    Poor Nancy Gay and Ann Killion, it is being reported that they were seen taking off from work and were reported to be crying like baby’s.

    It was also reported that Ann’s knees had blood on them from all the sitting up nights on her knees in deep prayer that she could witness Cable being walked off the Raiders training field in cuffs.

    Everything that they reported as fact turned out to be nothing but bull.

    =============================

    U got that right padnah!~

    We are extremely lucky to have Jerry who is in my opinion one of the few UNBIASED reporters left in the U.S.

    He tells it like it is. The Raiders have sucked. He says they sucked.

    Diplomatically, but you know what I mean.

    You can actually TRUST Jerry’s view because he’s not shilling for one side or the other.

    I for one realize how valuable that used to be and something taken for granted by too many old schoolers.

    Peace and well wishes to you and yours Jerry!
