    What makes any of you think another team is going to offer Russell more than the minimum salary and that he would accept that amount of money to play and take away from his time drinking, eating and whoring in and around Vegas?

    ADDITION BY SUBTRACTION…

    it’s a new day in Raiderland !!!!

  • M Lonetree

    Somewhere in Vegas tonight :

    the meeting of the Ja-men.

    Javon – “Damn dude you took ‘em for a lotta green.”
    JaMassive – “(unintelligible, but translated)Dude you made 15 mill for 14 catches.”
    Javon – “It wasn’t my fault. You made 39 mill for 7 wins.”
    JaMassive – “(unintelligible, but translated)It wasn’t my fault either. Nobody blocked or made plays for me.”

    party on JaMen. the afterlife is young.

  • El Tato

    He is going to INDY

  • SteveAlford21

    I’m seriously considering booking a flight out from Va to the B.A. tonight so I can go to Rickey’s to celebrate…

  • Raiders4eve

    Where is my buddy Jhill?

    I told him no way Campbell doesn’t start since he signed an extension. Now, we know Campbell is our future, I am happy JR is gone, Cable you on the clock if this team fails now.

    Thank you AD for cutting JaLoser, despite the impact it will have on the fast food industry in the Bay Area.

    What a great birthday present for Dakota.Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!

  • No Mas Diamante

    I don’t care where he goes. nothing will change for him. He had the world by the B@lls and he pissed it away.

    Jamarcus released before Bruce is even healed, and no sure thing to be healthy for the season.

    One last charade to embaress him. Well played Al.

  • DMAC

    Did someone say celebration at Rickeys???????????

  • DMAC

    When???????

  • RaiderRockstar

    He is going to the COLTS, just wait and see.

    ***

    El Tato: interesting, you could be right

    but when have the Colts ever picked up other team’s trash and tried to ressurrect it?

    never, or very seldom. they draft & develop talent in Indy

    Pats are notorious for picking up former raiders …

  • stoopidmike

    I’m surprised some think that the better teams will look at Russell.He’s a chemistry killer,and hella lazy,uncommited….Besides Jax,maybe Bengals.

  • jimmya

    I think Campbell could be the QB of the future..and the QB now.

    He has improved every year in the NFL. Even though he had a different Off- Coord every year.

    It seems Al Davis has handed over the reigns somewhat this year!

    Hue Jackson-Cable-…Doin Big Things this year!

  • Toyz

    He will be going to the Bills

    That was the biggest dropping of a deuce of all time

  • Nnamdi21

    I understand people frustration with him but to be happy he’s gone is a double edged sword.

    Biggest Bust in history and yup, he’s an Oakland Raider.

    Dakota, AD gave you a great Birthday Present today.

  • No Mas Diamante

    So who’s going to be Campbell’s back up?

  • inonewordraider

    the three worse signings ever all by Al Davis?

    Deangelo Hall
    Javon Walker
    Jamarcus Russell????

  • http://media-2.web.britannica.com/eb-media/63/60563-004-52A399D4.jpg Dakota

    Who knows, with an owner that gave his coaches the ability to discipline the players, and an organization that was run in a professional manner maybe Russell would have had a chance????

    Guess we will never know…..

    …..lol, yeah right, never mind, he is a lazy POS no matter what!

  • No Mas Diamante

    frye, grads or Boller?

    I assume there will be celebration on this glorious day.

  • lefty12

    But you guys don’t understand-it wasn’t his fault!!!!

    What makes any of you think Russell would go play somewhere else?

    Mike Florio of pft said that the Raiders restructure offer guaranteed him an extra million on top of the 3, and more than likely a roster spot.

    He passed. He would rather have $3 million for nothing, rather than $4 million to work.

    Nnamdi.

    #2 WAS in a uniform but he NEVER WAS a Raider.

  • jimmya

    Bottom line Nnamdi..some draft picks hit. some draft picks miss. More teams in the NFL have missed on draft picks than hit..

    So..you just gotta move on and replace em! Campbell is a solid, experienced QB that will no doubt improve this team!

  • Toyz

    Now that Jbust is gone let bring in Mawae at center and here come a better than 500. record

  • SteveAlford21

    Nnamdi,

    What’s up, bro? I’m not being a smartass here: I’ve meant to ask you this for a while, but never ran into you… Are you an investor/advertiser on that site or are you one of the creators/writers/workers or do they just pay you for traffic?

  • Pretty Rick

    Next up on the hot seat,,,,Tom Cable.

  • the_big_one_of_83

    we will win the AFC west now and we have 6.5 mill to spend on henderson mawae or T.o T.O

  • Boss Raider 650

    so what he got 33MM from Al. Al’s got a lot of money.

    After seeing him play the Giants and the Jets last season, that sealed the deal. A total piece of shyt!

    This is great news!

  • Toyz

    No T.O…Murphy is going to have a pro bowl year and DHB will be decent his break out year is in 2011

  • Just Win Baby

    Bill Belichick will pick his boy JaMarcus up for peanuts and turn him legit like he does so much other Raider trash. NOT. Even the Patriots can’t fix that piece of crap.

  • 8RaiderReign8

    Does it even matter who’s Campell’s back-up? Since Jamarcuss isn’t on the team our position at QB doubles in quality.

    In other news can someone post the number for season tickets? In honor of JADUMP DAY I’m officially too lazy to look for myself.

  • RaiderRetribution

    spend it on pro bowl center mawae

  • AbusedByAl

    Read the news only now. Best news from the Raiders so far for this year!!

    I still think they should have made him a tackle or guard ……………… or maybe if he put on a little more weight he could have been a good defensive nose tackle.

    —–
    Offensive lineman have to be some of the smartest players on the field. Russell is doesn’t even begin to be qualified here.

    What separates the great NTs from the mediocre, yet talents (aka big and strong) is the ability to not take plays off. That’s called work ethic. Russell is imminently unqualified here.

    The only role that he is suited for is kickoff coverage team wedge buster. That takes a big body and a certain lack of intelligence :-D

  • RaiderResurrection
  • Just Win Baby

    I just wanna know where da gold at!

  • Raider J

    2010 Off season may go down as a transition point in Raider history. More focus on production and professionalism than athleticism.

    Note to HeyBey and DMc. Step your game up.

    Jacoby Ford is a skilled WR. He will help the return game and take that slot position too.

    I only support getting T.O. if Schillens doesn’t heal
