Outta here

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, June 20th, 2010 at 11:49 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Checking out for a couple of weeks of company-mandated vacation as of midnight.

(Don’t you just hate it when they tell you to get paid for doing nothing? I’d tell you to hold the jokes, but I know better).

Good timing, in that’s the ultimate dead time as far as the NFL goes, with most teams not getting serious about signing draft picks until the Fourth of July and with the Raiders having pretty much shut down activity with the outside world until training camp approaches.

Sorry if I offended anyone with the JaMarcus Russell post at the Andre Ward fight . . . except that, oh, I’m not sorry at all.

The guy showed up in Oakland, where Al Davis is on record as wanting $9.55 million from Russell, and I’m not supposed to mention it?

The most significant draft pick in Raiders history, in terms of where he was picked and dollars paid out, and it should be kept silent?

If that’s what you think, keep in touch with Raiders.com.

Hope all you dads out there had a great Father’s Day. Lost may dad two years ago and still haven’t adjusted to not having him around. Condolences to on-line guru Jon Becker, whose father passed away this week and who I’m sure was keeping in close proximity to his two young children.

It’s the best way to carry on, or at least it was for me.

Assume this space will be updated periodically in my absence.

I’ll be back in July.

    Pray tell…how is it that YOU KNOW ABOUT COMMENTS FROM ME from over a year PRIOR TO SEYMOUR BUSH signing on?
    How is that possible…I mean…if you AREN’T Oakglen?
    ====================================================

    Once again, a completely STUPID thing to say. You see that link to the catalog of Jerry’s articles up there on the right? Well, you can just pull any of those articles up and wow, there you are saying stupid sh**. It takes all of about four seconds to find you saying some ignorant idiotic thing. Same thing for mistabrOwn. Literally, it takes four seconds.
    ===================
    Now how odd is that?

    What you’re saying is that you…basically…went back a year plus, and just decided to READ ALL OF MY POSTS?

    You didn’t just say that? lol…

    don’t you think it’s better you just state “I knew all of what happened back then because I WAS HERE BACK THEN POSTING AS OAKGLEN’ instead of now saying you went back….

    AND DECIDED TO GO AND READ MY COMMENTS, WHEN YOU WEREN’T EVEN HERE?

    I mean, granted, you look like a fool either way…too late to un-sail that ship, courtesy of your dumbass,..but..everyone already knows you’re a cross-posting POS who has full conversations/arguments with himself…but now stating you’re my little groupy?

    Does it get much better than this? :mrgreen:

    Sources tell ESPN New York that the Jets have inquired about free agent JaMarcus Russell.

    ESPN’s Rich Cimini characterizes the Jets’ interest as “monitoring,” and expects the team to opt for free agent Mark Brunell behind Mark Sanchez. Russell is currently in Arizona trying to get in shape. Cimini calls Arizona and Minnesota more likely landing spots for the ex-No. 1 overall pick. Jun. 29 – 11:17 am et

    ……….

    Yeah, because we all know about those successful countries that operate apart from law and order! I mean, how can we not love the total breakdown of civilization and the replacement of an individual’s responsibility to the society with total anarchy and survival of the strongest.

    Tear down the walls! Stick it to the “man”, man! (end sarcasm here)

    Here’s a clue. All law is the legislation of morality. However, the United States was founded on the Principle of SELF GOVERNANCE. That is the ability of the individual to police themselves. Its not about no law, but about the individual taking responsibility for their own actions.

    So you can legislate morality(create laws) and still call for small government if the PEOPLE CAN GOVERN THEMSELVES.

    Not what he said. It’s what YOU said as a weak pathetic retort, after your mancrush on Rob the Slob Ryan got laughed at.

    Let me simplify it for you, Old Man.
    Most Raider fans think Rob Ryan sucks as a DC.
    YOU replied with “Belichick had him as a coach, and you’re not smarter than him”
    Except he WASN’T a DC.
    But you won’t let that go, because doing so means you get laughed at even more for being wrong, yet again.

    As far as me owning you?
    Doesn’t everyone on this board basically own you?

    Why do you think you ALWAYS change your handles?
    Because you KEEP GETTING SLAMMED DOWN…

    Simple question I KNOW YOU WON’T answer….
    By your estimate, how many posters here have accused you of cross-posting?

    Ted, why are the employers greedy? If not for those employers, these Mexicans have nothing! Can you tell me what employer can pay a worker less than minimum wage? If so, what is the name of this employer? I do believe employers who hire illegals should be severely punished. However, without cheap labor, the U.S. cannot compete with a billion four Chinese, and a billion two Asian Indians paid a buck a week.

    ………………………………unless shipping is free like you morons think,you might use your brain before your big mouth comes open.freight comes here on american ships which is jobs,freight is unloaded here by american dock workers which is jobs,freight is hauled around the country by american railroads which is jobs ,freight is hauled by truckers which are american jobs ,then the truckers eat at diners where they have waitresses thats a american job so there are millions of jobs created here in the u.s. by those cheap chinese labor. you must be castrated because 99 % of your brain is missing.

    It’s war! Lawyer for DailyKos details lawsuit against Research 2000
    Okay, I just got off the phone with a lawyer for DailyKos, and he gave me a bunch of interesting new detail about the lawsuit Kos is going to file against the polling outfit Research 2000.

    The gist: This is likely to be a serious lawsuit that is going to flush a lot out into the open, and prompt a serious discussion about what news orgs should be doing to vet polling data they commission.

    In case you missed it, DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas today revealed that he was preparing to sue Research 2000, which Kos has commissioned polling from for years. Kos said a trio of statistics experts dug into their polling and concluded that much of the polling “we ran the past year and a half was likely bunk.”

    Another example of the left lying. Just sayin.’

    Fat Kidd, the reason why Walmart can offer products at such reduced prices is because most items sold there are produced in places like China and Mexico, where labor costs are very cheap. If you were selling a widget, you would produce them in countries with lower labor costs, that way you could sell your product at a reduced cost. But you wouldn’t know any of this because you don’t create, you consume and inherit what others EARNED!

    WASHINGTON — Badgered by lawmakers, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan denied the nation’s economic crisis was his fault on Thursday but conceded the meltdown had revealed a flaw in a lifetime of economic thinking and left him in a “state of shocked disbelief.”

    Greenspan, who stepped down in 2006, called the banking and housing chaos a “once-in-a-century credit tsunami” that led to a breakdown in how the free market system functions. And he warned that things would get worse before they get better, with rising unemployment and no stabilization in housing prices for “many months.”

    Gloomy economic reports backed him up. New jobless claims soared to just under 500,000 for last week, and Goldman Sachs, Chrysler and Xerox all said they were cutting thousands more workers. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrials bounced erratically all day before finishing up 172 points — after a two-day drop of nearly 750.

    The financial crisis even prompted the Republican Greenspan, a staunch believer in free markets, to propose that government consider tougher regulations, including requiring financial firms that package mortgages into securities to keep a portion as a check on quality.

    He said other regulatory changes should be considered, too, in such areas as fraud.

    Kyle Boller, Carrie Prejean reportedly ready to marry
    Posted by Michael David Smith on June 29, 2010 2:46 PM ET
    Kyle Boller has a training camp battle ahead of him this summer, competing with Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye for the two backup quarterback jobs in Oakland behind Jason Campbell.

    But right now he’s got a more pressing issue: He’s getting married on Friday, as first reported by TMZ.

    Boller’s bride-to-be is Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California USA who has publicly opposed gay marriage and publicly feuded with, among others, Perez Hilton, Donald Trump and Larry King.

    Boller was the Ravens’ first-round draft pick in 2003 and spent six years in Baltimore, starting 42 games. He started four games for the Rams in 2009 and signed with the Raiders in April.
