Still on Al standard time

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, January 15th, 2010 at 5:31 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Word out of Alameda is that Tom Cable has been at work most of the day but Al Davis has not.

It’s been confirmed the two did meet last night, although estimates of the time they spent together ranged from one to three hours.

Davis could still arrive for a late-night meeting, or it could be put off until the owner feels its time to move ahead. It’s entire possible Davis knows exactly what he’s going to do and Cable knows as well but he hasn’t felt the need to tell anyone.

In theory, if Cable is staying, there’s no reason to announce anything until a press release is produced or a spokesman says, “He’s under contract and we never considered firing him. It’s all media speculation,” as they did following Lane Kiffin’s failed attempt to fire Rob Ryan.

It’s Al’s world, and we’re along for the long, slow ride.

    Neilb,

    Everyone likes all the dogs. Amazingly the homes teams record the last 4 years in this round is 7-9. Last year 1-3.

    I hope the Saints win and cover, than you know you can hammer the dogs after that.

    *******************************

    Well I called it, I should try to follow it up.

    Ravens with the points?? I like the Cowboys and Chargers tomorrow.

    Every year it seems, there is one upset and one blowout. We see the blowout. Are the Ravens the upset? I’m taking the points.

    Cowboys aren’t really that big of an upset.

    I also love the USA,..but there are those that move out of here,..more move i nthen out thats for sure,..because our government hands out tax payer money to them when they get here., other countries dont.
    ……..

    Not to mention the human rights laws, illegal search and seizure, right to a trial by peers, open borders,entrepreneurial spitit, elective government, freedom of worship, freedom of speech, freedom to assemble, right to bear arms, beer, women, NFL, and the middle class way of life.

    Most come for the welfare,..yes I watch 60 Minutes….the ones not comin for welfare come to be career criminals…(Mexico)

  • Norco Bob

    Per Morley Safer anyway.

    Norco, the Raiders are doing everything they can to narrow the masculinity advantage football has always had over soccer.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Norco, you don’t even know what welfare is.

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    NORCO. I ASSUME BY YOUR USE OF HYDROCODONE THAT U ARE A FORMER RAPE VICTIM THAT USES DRUGS 2 COPE WITH THE PAIN .

    Actually Flacco really scares me. He is hurt, young, on the road and not that great.

    Getting gun-shy.

  • Norco Bob

    They should just call off this game. This is like a boxing match where one guy is being held up by a corner, standing in a pool of his own blood while being pounded. Howard Cossell would have walked out of the booth by now.

    ASSUMPTIONS ..

  • Norco Bob

    Been to a couple Clash and Earthquake matches,..at times during the match, its almost as if the game has stopped, when it hadnt,…soccer is boring and sucks,..a sport for really stupid people,..like Euros,..3rd world contries,…thats why little kids play soccer, because running around kicking a ball is easy,..even retarded people can do it,…all good I guess. lol

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Poor Kurt Warner. Looks like Jesus sided with N’orlans today, just as he sided with Santana Moss a year ago.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Norco, yeh, soccer sucks. And Raider games are truly exciting.

    I smoke pot daily, but it legally in Oaklandand Sacramento with my medical card,..ya I of course love beer too, who doesnt?…:)
    ============================
    Of course you’re a burner.
    Everything about your silly whining little ‘look at me..someone reply to me.., haha, you replied, oh look at me giggle like a little girl’ comments screams burner.

    You get no reply about career criminals from Mexico, so minutes later you post it again? lol..you’re so pathetic.

    Still laughing at you proudly believing being an illiterate drunk is an accomplishment.

    In that case, reach for the stars, Doofus.

    LMN,

    To beat guys at their own game, is always fun. The first game against England will be rocking. Barack even says he might go.

    well premier league is the best league but the UK team is NOT the best team, and they never will be…

    MR,..I have been going mainly the last 7 years strictly for the tailgating,…the wins and losses dont affect that.

  • Norco Bob

    Hi again Rich, thanks for following. :)

  • Norco Bob

    La Melissa, is soccer popular where you are?

    Raider75,

    I’m a pot head, but I never been to jail or have a record.
    You should read my post again, and maybe you can understand it better.

  • Norco Bob

    People who dont get high, wel lthey have issues, and when they have gotten high, they trip on them alot,..so from then on they bag on pot,..when the truth is they hate the mind expanding experience,..makes them see themselves for what they are and it depresses them. Pot is great. I love it. Buy it legally too.

    SnB,

    We have good things and bad just like any other country. We need to understand our strengths and weaknesses so we can improve.
    People like Raider75 are the weak link!!

    Based on actual results not hypotheticals…

    Immigration: compare how the USA does it vs. Europe…LOL

    Religion: No coutry in the world comes close to allowing a total freedom to practice what one will…in France they won’t let the Muslim girls wear the headscarf…in Saudi Arabia its illegal to worship anything other than Islam…

    Diversity: Come talk to me when I see an Arabic guy running in prominence in Isreel…or an Indian Prime Minister in Denmark…how about a Korean guy in Japan….no one comes close…yet Louisiana elected an Indian conservative named Jindahl as Governor

    Education: No country has as many secondary education institutions per capita than the USA…and access to them are fairly open (especially at community college and lower level state college levels)–How many foreign students attend Chinese schools?

    Hey Mr. North American awareness guy, ever hear of a country named Canada?

    (Hint: just North of the 49th parallel)
    P.S. it’s not called North Korea
