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.
