Cable, Davis have talked about allegations

Raiders coach Tom Cable said Wednesday he has spoken with owner Al Davis regarding allegations in an ESPN story he has a violent history toward women.

The Raiders issued a press release Monday saying they would “undertake a serious evaluation of the matter.”

Said Cable following practice: “Al and I have spoken. What we talked about is between us and we’ll keep it that way,” adding that he would let the sitaution run its course and that he expected to remain coach of the Raiders through the rest of the season.

When asked if he had been assured he would remain the coach, Cable said, “We didn’t even talk about that. We talked about, like you’re supposed to, the team, personnel moves, the second half and upcoming (games). Those are not issues for us to discuss. There’s no need to right now. Right now it’s about trying to turn it around and get us on track.”

More to come regarding the Raiders bye week practice and open locker room to come . . .

    McFade must remain healthy long enough to put the ball on the ground. He’ll be worrying so much about his knee that the ball will no doubt come out in a hurried manner.

    I RUE THE DAY Al Davis listened to Dakota and drafted that BUST….

    Oh wait..it’s “4eva”..he who waits for someone else to think, then thanks them for thinking for him.

    As far as you feeling so “behind” on current info?

    If it means that much to you, go to google, type in “lemming”..at the bottom of the page you’ll see an option to have you emailed an alert everytime something is posted regarding “lemming”…heck you can even do it for “Al Davis Dumbass Moves”..and hark..everytime Al does something stupid, you’ll be notified.

    In other words, you’ll have lots of emails to go through.

    BTW..Earl took that exact advice. He gets alerts anytime “BINGO”, “Senior Citizen”, “obstinate old man” or “Sale on Depends” is posted.

    Ask him..he’ll tell you.

    When asked if he had been assured he would remain the coach, Cable said, “Welcome to McDonalds. May I take your order?”

    Bo,

    Maybe in terms of girth…coaching wise Charlie is 10 times the coach Cable will ever dream of becoming.

    I do not like Weis, but I would certainly take him as Raiders HC over The Wife Beating Buffoon.

    Dakota,

    I hope she doesn’t want to get her strap on. Shoelace head can’t get it in the hole to save his life.

    (Free agent — 45 percent) Far be it from me to promote anyone in a Raiders uniform, but if you’re desperate for a running back, adding Fargas is worth considering. He’s rushed for a combined 209 yards and a touchdown in his last three games, and a matchup against the Chiefs and their weak run defense awaits after a bye in Week 10. Again, if you’re in dire straits at the position, Fargas has some value.

    Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

    Mid-week mail call:

    Jared from Oregon wonders if the Raiders would be better off with Michael Crabtree than Darrius Heyward-Bey:

    Bill Williamson: I think you have to say yes on this one. Crabtree has been fantastic in two games and Heyward-Bey had struggled in eight games. Heyward-Bey has made no impact in Oakland, while Crabtree has already made an impact in San Francisco. Crabtree looks like a special player and he’d be Oakland’s best offensive player if he was wearing the Silver and Black.

    ^^^^^^^The Niners make an effort to throw him the ball….the Raiders don’t make in REAL effort to get the ball to DHB.

    I’m still waiting for Cable or Tollner to call some WR bubble screens with two blockers in front so DHB can explode for a big gain. Still waiting to see proper reverses executed with DHB….still waiting on some plays called with him running some double moves…..still waiting on plays to be called with him running hitch patterns or 15 curl and comeback routes.

    I’m still waiting for Al Davis to “retire” from making football decisions and for a REAL GM and HC to be hired like Gruden, Cowher or Holmgren or Fisher!!!

    Hopefully, Al has Jeff Birren on the phone right now trying to figure out how to “for cause” Cable’s ass.

    AL: “Tom, did you hit those women?”

    TOM: “No Mr. Davis, I only pimped slapped my first wife, after I caught her in bed with the Post Man. I don’t know what my second wife, and that whack job ex girl friend are talking about.”

    AL: “Are you sure about this?”

    TOM: “Absolutely, Mr. Davis, sir.”

    AL: “Damn, I guess you can keep your job for now.”

    TOM: “Thank you, Mr Davis. You won’t regret this.”

    AL: “Tom two more things before you go. Don’t ever pull that kid Russell from a game again, regardless of how bad he’s playing. And don’t ever let Marshall blitz or play zone again.”

    TOM: “Yes sir, Mr. Davis.”

    AL: “Kiss my pinky ring, and get out of here.”

  • BornInOakland

    Ummmm…. Hey Cable? You should have hoped that Al did speak to you about this problem. By not talking to you about it, you can bet he is having your walking papers signed and sealed for delivery.

  • DKnight007

    This freakin team needs Jon Gruden as the Head Coach again! We all know it….since he should have never been “TRADED” in the first freakin place. Hire him back and bringing back Bruce Allen or a reall personnel man will turn this franchise around and it will exercise “some” of Al Davis’ demons!

    Only way this team turns into a respectable playoff caliber team again…..PERIOD!

  • NorthernD

    A head coach who slaps women, fractures the jaw of assistant coaches.
    A star running back drafted number 4 overall, who has a mother who steals and sells crack, has two brothers in opposing gangs, and has fathered illegitimate babies from different mothers.
    A number one quarter back who puts in minimum time for self-improvement, and who thinks failure and poor performance is acceptable.
    How about some quality control here fellas?
    Hey Raiders, how about doing some background checks other than skimming through Youtube videos?

    In an unrelated note…the Raiders just signed Kimbo Slice to play LB.

    “When it comes to organizational dysfunction, the Cleveland Browns are now right there with the Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins. This week’s events in Cleveland have thrust the team into a vortex of bizarre moves.

    The Browns, Raiders and Redskins might all be on the hunt for coaches and execs again come January. Some things never change. And if I’m one of the 29 other teams, I’m trying to see if there is a role for Kokinis with my club, breaking down film on potential free agents, mining the waiver wire for possible gems, putting together emergency lists and helping oversee my scouting department.

    A good football man can be hard to find, and sometimes all too easily discarded.”

    Oooh, the Raiders are so mysterious. Nothing like a professional sports team that’s sucked for 7 years playing James Bond with the press. So intriguing! We’re all impressed, Al, seriously…

    AL: Jeff, it’s Al, can you come on down to Raiders’ HQ this afternoon?

    JB: Of course Mr. Davis, but can you give me an idea about what we are looking at first?

    AL: Well, you remember that fat tub of lard that I hired as head coach without first checking his resume?

    JB: Sure, Tom Cable.

    AL: No, its Tim Cable.

    JB: Whatever you say boss.

    AL: Anyhow, turns out he was 11-35 as a college head coach! Can you believe that?

    JB: Well, after watching the past twenty games, yeah, I guess I could see that.

    AL: Yeah, that damned Herrera failed to properly vet another coaching candidate. Turns out the fat tub of lard is also a wife beater!

    JB: Herrera?

    AL: Well, probably, but I am talking about Tim Cable!

    JB: Does that concern you and do you think it affects his ability to coach?

    AL: Hell no Jeff, it doesn’t concern me and I think he is just a crappy head coach…but it concerns Carol, so I gotta do something about it!

    JB: I see.

    AL: I want to fire Cable for cause…think we can pull that off again?

    JB: Oh, absolutely Mr. Davis. The Raider organization takes abuse very seriously, and Mr. Cable has demonstrated a tendency to harm women. this will be no problem Mr. Davis.

    AL: Thought so. Come on down and we’ll get the ball rolling. I already have Herrera checking out Tim Cable’s replacement, a guy by the name of Sonny Lal…

    If you want to watch the real team in black right now. Watch the Saints play ball! They built that team up around a QB and a a X and Os coach. They put their players in a position to win. They play to those players strengths. I guess we will be running McFadden on a blast up the middle for two yards and sweeping Bush around the outside.

    This team sucks!

    Does Al really care about winning??? If so, why do the Raiders suck so freaking bad?….now for seven freaking years in a freaking row.

    So sick of all this losing crap.

    Doesn’t Al want to win a Super Bowl before he dies? Well he better get busy and start getting some good freaking players in here quick.

    -The linebackers SUCK A$$
    -The wide recievers are the worst I have ever seen on a Raider club.
    -I would like to see Russell throw to some receivers who can actually cath the ball before I say he is the complete loser he has shown imself to be thus far.

    One thing is certain though: you can’t teach a guy to be a leader, or to have smarts. He’s dumb, but I’d still like to see him sling it to a decent core of receivers.

    Doesn’t that senile old idiot Al Davis see this???
