Huff says McClain is OK

There is not a lot of information to add to the earlier report of Rolando McClain being unhurt following a drive-by shooting in his home of Decatur, Ala.

Raiders senior assistant John Herrera said “We’re aware of it,” and the club had no other comment.

As tight-lipped as the Raiders are in almost any circumstance, there is no reason to be putting forth any information on such a serious matter especially when McClain is apparently fine and there is no reason to believe he is anything other than a potential victim.

Safety Michael Huff said on his Twitter account: “I just talked to Rolando and he’s doing good. Everything is fine.”

    After this past week, I wouldn’t be suprised if Kapernick was drafted ahead of all the other QB’s at the Senior Bowl yesterday.

    I’m thinking someone will take him at the end of the 2nd round.

    Teach, Michael Corleone was hardly fictional. He was based on Bill Bonnano.

    I wish the mob still controlled Las Vegas. They’d know how to convince the owners and the union to find some common ground pretty quickly.

    …………

    Martin Scorsese said that his movie Casino was about the crooks running Vegas in the ’70s, and that 20 years from now, someone will make a movie about the crooks running Vegas today.

    ^^^^^^^^
    Vegas is in the s**t right now actually. Real Estate was hit hard down there and developers and investors lost big time since 2008.

    Raiders may be waiting for Darren Perry, too

    Posted by Mike Florio on January 30, 2011, 1:48 PM EST

    There’s an increasing belief that the Eagles haven’t hired a defensive coordinator because they’re waiting for Packers safeties coach Darren Perry.

    The Eagles may not be the only ones waiting.

    Jerry McDonald of InsideBayArea.com recently reported that the Raiders may be interested in — and thus waiting for — Perry, too.

    And we may as well throw the Cardinals into the mix, too. Coach Ken Whisenhunt reportedly wants to interview members of the Packers’ and Steelers’ staffs to fill the defensive coordinator position in Arizona, via the Philadelphia Daily News.

    One major issue remains the willingness of the Packers to let Perry leave, if he’s under contract beyond the current season. With Perry saying he’s ready to be a coordinator and with teams apparently lining up for his services, the Packers either have already made it known that he’ll be free to leave, or a problem is looming that could made the whole team photo Twitter thing look as meaningless as, well, the whole team photo Twitter thing.

    Madden,

    You’re right, of course. It’s just that more people are familiar with the Michael Corleone character than they are Bill Bonnano. Easier to make the point.

    You may have some second thoughts about your favorite football team, if that’s the case. Study up on some of the Raiders’ original partners, and some of Al Davis’s friends in Vegas.

    MR, Davis is a J*w.

    Study up on Davis’s interesting relationship with the DeBartolo family, too, and his role in bringing the DeBartolos to SF to buy the Niners.

    So?

    Study up on his background and business partners anyway. Mayor Lanskey was a Jew. So was Frank Rosenthal (inspiration for Sam Roethistein in Casino). Who did they work with? Or for, in Rosenthal’s case?

    The problem with the Italians is that they are inherently violent. Even if they seem like good and nice people, they are still blood thirsty.

    Is the Fitzgerald in Reno black owned? Anyhow, it would make sense. I once saw a drunk, loud mouthed white guy get thrown out of there by his hair. Security was white, though.

    This is some what Maddenraider was talking about concerning the mob, the DeBartolo family and Al Davis:

    “The U.S. Customs Service had received information from one of its special agents in January 1981 that the DeBartolo organization through its control of particular state banks in the state of Florida is operating money-laundering schemes, realizing huge profits from narcotics, guns, skimming operations, and other organized-crime-related activities.

    This organization is reported to have ties to [Carlos] Marcello, [Santo] Trafficante, and [Meyer]Lansky and because of its enormous wealth and power has high-ranking political influence and affiliations.

    In an earlier report, the special agent wrote that he had developed source information indicating that Meyer Lansky, the financial wizard of OC [organized crime], is now considered by most to be almost senile and getting out of the business. His successor and new financial wizard is recognized as Edward J. DeBartolo.

    DeBartolo had made several unsuccessful attempts to purchase major-league baseball teams during the late 1970s.

    In March 1977, the elder DeBartolo purchased 90 percent of the stock of the San Francisco 49ers for $17.6 million and made it a subsidiary of his corporation

    Al Davis, owner of the Raiders and former business partner with Allen Glick who managed Las Vegas casino investments for the mob, arranged the sale of the 49ers to the DeBartolo family.”

    It’s said that Al Davis took a 10% “finders fee” from the transaction.

    After watching alot of tape on a whole bunch of players. There’s 3 players that stand out to me on the O-Line and that is Watkins,Moffit and Hudson and in that order. Hudson kind of scares me with his size but the other 2 guys are animals and stood there ground constantly. I still like Pettis but Hankerson sure did look good this past week.

    In the Senior Bowl, there was some LT from Colorado who was a former TE that Mayock said would be a top 15 pick.

    However picks him, Solder I think his name was, will be severely disappointed.

    That dude was soft and stiff. Not a great combo for a LT.
