    No, she is Black and very nice…

  • J Wiggle

    i am not down on grads as i beleive he was one of the 4 stand up guys we had last year.

    ——————————————————-

    Stand up guy? Absolutely.

    Fire??? Yup, has that.

    Starting QB for the Oakland Raiders? Just can’t see it.

    If Campbell falters, we draft a QB next year or try and trade for one. Like we did this past off season.

    mope & change

  • http://www.oakglenisafuktard.com MistaBrown

    JFB if it wasnt Moss that went down it was Randle El I’m pretty sure one of those guys went out.

    Only half year for Cooley, geez hardly nothing huh lol

  • Thec07

    We need to get 1-3 signed. Hope Mr. Davis gives away the farm, so other teams have to conform….

  • J Wiggle

    The QB is not going to be the reason this team wins or loses this year. It’s without question the Oline. If the Oline allows Bush to get off, and can protect the QB our offense is good enough to score 20 pts.

    If the Oline doesn’t do it’s job Gradkowski will not be better than Campbell.

  • bcz24

    We wont draft a QB next year. We have no first round pick remember. If Campbell cant be successful here then we are screwed for another few years…

    Why do you think we won’t take a QB in the 2nd rd?

  • J Wiggle

    Raider football is 7 days !!!!!

  • bcz24

    I suppose we could take a QB in the second round if there was one that warranted the pick. I suspect that wont be the case though.

    Whew, I was a lot more worried about unimaginable consequences.

  • J Wiggle

    As the NCAA continues its suddenly comprehensive attempt to clean up a mess that has been languishing on the carpet for years, one former NFL coach turned Alabama coach, who famously said he wouldn’t be the Alabama coach, is coming close to calling for college football programs to freeze out the NFL, if the pro game can’t keep agents from paying players.

    “What the NFL Players Association and the NFL need to do is if any agent breaks a rule and causes ineligibility for a player, they should suspend his [agent's] license for a year or two,” Nick Saban told ESPN.com, via CFT. “I’m about ready for college football to say, ‘Let’s just throw the NFL out. Don’t let them evaluate players. Don’t let them talk to players. Let them do it at the combine.’ If they are not going to help us, why should we help them?”

    Saban is upset because the Tide could be the latest program to possibly get rolled by the NCAA. Alabama currently is looking into whether defensive end Marcel Dareus blew his eligibility by “taking his talents to South Beach” earlier this summer for a party hosted by an agent.

    Saban has picked a valid target, but the aim is wrong. If an agent pays a player, he’s already subject to punishment. The problem is that, previously, neither the NCAA nor the NFLPA did anything to enforce the rules. With the Reggie Bush case prompting an epiphany for the NCAA, the next logical step will be for the union to stand up and take action against agents who pay players before their eligibility ends.

    Of course, full and complete and consistent enforcement of that rule could mean that not many agents would be left.

    “Right now, agents are screwing it up,” Saban said. “They are taking the eligibility of players. It’s not right that those players do the wrong thing. We have a great education process here. We have a full-time worker who meets with players and their families and does everything else.”

    Saban’s threat should get the league’s attention. Pro football teams, as Saban knows, tiptoe on eggshells to cater to college coaches, given that NCAA football provides a free farm system for the NFL. If more coaches begin to call for the NFL to be cut off, the league’s scouting efforts will suffer.

    And so the league needs to lean on the union to police the agents. As if the league and the union didn’t already have enough issues between them.

  • J Wiggle

    I suspect that wont be the case though.

    ——————————————————-

    I agree because a team that wins 11 games doesn’t draft QBs in the 2nd rd.

  • bcz24

    High five to that Wiggles!

  • J Wiggle

    I sure hope the commish doesn’t suspend VY for game 1!

  • bcz24

    I hope he DOES! Im all about competitive advantages…

    Raiders spurn LA fans, cancel signing at Universal City Walk

    Every year since the Raider Image opened at the Universal City Walk, they have had an autograph signing for the fans in Southern California. And for the first time, it was canceled.

    Normally the signing happens the first week of June which is the anniversary of the opening of the City Walk Raider Image. This year’s even was supposed to be extra special as they were celebrating their 10th anniversary. Initially the event was pushed back to July 26th. The news that went with the postponing of the signing was good because instead of a simple autograph signing, it was going to be an all-day event with several more festivities added to the celebration.

    The Raiders still have a large fan base in Los Angeles after winning a Super Bowl as the LA Raiders in 1984 and spending 13 years there from 1982 to 1995. The signing event at this Raider Image is one of the few that are held annually in the area. And this year’s event had a great number of those fans extremely excited about what the Raiders had in store.

    But in the end, instead of an extra special day, it turns out it won’t be happening at all.

    I contacted the Raider Image about the event and they were unable to offer any information as to what was planned or why it was canceled. In fact, they seemed especially unwilling to give out any information that I didn’t already have.

    There could very well be a good reason for the cancellation for all the fans know. And they deserve an apology at very least. Rather than simply being left high and dry, without an appearance by their favorite players, a rescheduling or an explanation.

    Guests for the signing in recent years have included stars like Michael Huff and Thomas Howard along with appearances by Raider Legends Jim Otto and Greg Townsend.

    Raider fans are optimistic and excited about the upcoming season more than they have been in many years so there no doubt would have been a tremendous turn-out. But instead, Raider fans in the Los Angeles area are given the shaft without such as an apology.

    Fans want to see this exciting and potentially great team. Now is the time to get these Raiders in front of the fans, signing autographs and reaching out. That is how you create new generations of fans. Not alienating them. Yet another giant missed opportunity.

    VY is terrible!

    Advantage Raiders if he starts

  • RaiderRockstar

    I agree because a team that wins 11 games doesn’t draft QBs in the 2nd rd.

    ***

    except Philly (Kevin Kolb)

  • bcz24

    VY was 8-2 as a starter last year… hardly terrible

  • RaiderRockstar

    Kevin Kolb was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round (36th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft. He was the third quarterback taken in the draft behind JaMarcus Russell (1st overall) and Brady Quinn (22nd overall).

    Last year Kolb became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 300 yards in each of his first two career starts. Kolb was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his efforts against the Chiefs.

    Kolb expressed his desire to be the starting quarterback for the Eagles during the 2010 offseason: “Obviously my goal is to be the starter and to start for 16 games and to lead this team as far as we can go. Personally, I don’t have a lot of personal goals right now, they’re more team-oriented, besides me getting on the field and proving I can take over this thing.” On March 26, Adam Schefter reported that the Eagles expect Kolb to be the starting quarterback for the 2010 season. On April 4, McNabb was traded to the Washington Redskins, making Kolb the starting quarterback. Kolb signed a one-year contract extension worth $12.25 million on April 29, keeping him under contract with the Eagles through the 2011 season.

    Kolb married his wife Whitney Huddleston in February 2007; they reside in Woolwich Township, New Jersey, just outside of suburban Philadelphia. Whitney gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Kamryn June, on January 10, 2009. Their second child, a daughter named Atley Rose, was born in April 2010.

    Kolb majored in business entrepreneurship at the University of Houston.

    Kolb is an avid hunter; he hunts wild hogs with a couple of dogs and a 12-inch Bowie knife. He asserts that controlling the hog population is an essential part of protecting his hometown’s crops. “One hog can ruin an entire field of crops in just one night. They dig up and eat the roots. They need to be controlled,” says Kolb.

    for some reason I like this dude. LOL

  • RaiderRockstar

    Kevin Kolb & Jason Campbell will both be compared to Donovan McNabb this year … and I won’t be a bit surprised when they both outplay him

    Print That!

    Handed the ball off to Chris Johnson.

    VY is terrible. He’ll throw us at least 2 picks.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Titans = great coaching, great running game, great o-line, solid defense

    QB play? average at best. borderline terrible

    cover the TE’s (Bo Scaife & Jared Cook) = passing game diminished

    shut down the screen pass and keep VY in the pocket? GAME OVER

  • J Wiggle

    Yo RRS …

    Did you hear who tied for America’s top athlete?

    Your boys Tiger and Kobe.

  • RaiderRockstar

    VY is more known for his shirtless drunken party in Texas (with Huff), depression/suicide problems and punching some guy in a bar than his play on the football field

  • RaiderRockstar

    Tiger and Kobe.

    Who???

  • RaiderRockstar

    Did you hear who tied for America’s top athlete?

    who voted for them?

    the women they paid for s3x ?

  • RaiderRockstar

    you might as well have told me Big Ben & Lawrence Taylor …

    I guess it’s been confirmed.

    America loves douchebags (see President JaMarcus for example)

  • J Wiggle

    Tiger Woods is still in first place in the latest Harris Interactive poll to determine America’s favorite sports star. But for the first time since 2006, he has to share the title. Kobe Bryant moved up from last year’s fourth-place finish to share to the top spot in the poll released today. From the Associated Press:

  • J Wiggle

    Lawrence Taylor

    —————————————————–

    You don’t condone single guys setting up dates via craig’s list?

  • RaiderRockstar

    The Toronto Raptors thought they were close to acquiring Matt Barnes via sign-and-trade, but apparently somebody didn’t do their homework, causing the deal to go through. With no cap space left to sign Barnes, no Bird rights (or even early Bird rights), and the inability to use salary cap exceptions to sign him and subsequently trade him, the Magic are a pretty improbable sign-and-trade partner.

    With Toronto stalled, a few more teams will have a chance to lure away Barnes, despite the fact that he doesn’t seem to mind playing for the Raptors next season. According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, though the Raptors remain interested and are exploring more ways to acquire Barnes, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, and Miami Heat will all be continuing their negotiations with the swingman.

    -PBT

  • J Wiggle

    if he met the chick on match.com would he be off your list?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Taylor was arrested on May 6, 2010 for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old girl inside a Montebello, New York Holiday Inn Hotel. He has been charged with third-degree statutory rape which is a felony, for allegedly engaging in sexual intercourse with someone under 17 while being over 21. Taylor has also been charged with third-degree patronization for allegedly paying the underage victim $300 to have sex with him. His bail was set at $75,000. His lawyer Arthur Aidala has stated “My client did not have sex with anybody. Period…Lawrence Taylor did not rape anybody.” Taylor is facing up to five years in prison and life time sex offender registration if convicted of both crimes. On June 23, 2010, Taylor was indicted of these charges. He plead not guilty on July 13, 2010

    Jwigg: you’re ok with this?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jwigg: you have a daughter

    if some scumbag athlete with money tried to lure her in (under age!), i’m sure you’d have a different opinion

  • lefty12

    Can’t condone what Taylor did but there was no luring.She had a pimp and supposedly told him she was over 18.

  • lefty12

    Should the Raiders set up autograph sessions in Podunk,MO also as we know there is at least 1 huge fan there?

  • bcz24

    I agree lefty… dont condone what Taylor did, but he wasnt “luring” anyone anywhere. She was there of her own accord under the illusion that she WAS 18. She certainly did not tell LT she was 16 prior to engaging him. Whether or not any sex occured will be decided by the courts, but lets not paint this young prostitute as the victim here. She may be a victim of circumstance regarding whatever caused to enter the life of a hooker, but not a victim of LT.

  • J Wiggle

    Jwigg: you have a daughter

    if some scumbag athlete with money tried to lure her in (under age!), i’m sure you’d have a different opinion

    ——————————————————-

    The chick was a prostitute with a pimp who he hooked up with off a well known hook up site.

    It’s not like he was chatting her up and pretended to be something he wasn’t.

    I hardly see the comparison.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jwigg: you guys need to go check out LT’s rap sheet.

    also explain to me why it’s ok for a married man to seek a pimp for a prostitute thats young enough to be his daughter

  • RaiderRockstar

    Should the Raiders set up autograph sessions in Podunk,MO also as we know there is at least 1 huge fan there?

    ***

    I doubt any Raiders would come to Podunk, but they might come to KC or STL for a game … I have yet to visit Arrowhead Stadium or Edward Jones Dome, but it’s certainly a possibility in the near future

    I want to see my Raiders win a few games before I drive 7-8 hours round trip and spend money on tix to watch us get beat down by an awful team

  • Jonesy941

    why would we lose to a crappy team in there own stadium much less a division rival? thats unheard of!
