Raiders call report ‘untrue’ about McKenzie hire — UPDATED

Share

Raiders new general manager Reggie McKenzie is busy scouring the countryside for a head coach to take the place of the fired Hue Jackson. The Raiders issued a statement saying it is “untrue” that McKenzie hired Sean Jones as his assistant general manager.
PackerReport.com said earlier today that McKenzie hired Jones. The Raiders wasted little time debunking the report.
Jones, 49, played for the Raiders from 1984-87. He finished his career with a three-year stint with the Green Bay Packers. Coincidentally, those were McKenzie’s first three years with the Packers in their front office.
Jones has worked in the Raiders front office in the past.

    SEAN JONES IS A GOOD HIRE..

    Exla,

    Are you as disgusted with the Lakers as I am? Almost unwatchable. We need Dwight Howard just to change over to the next era. Forget Kobe and what he thinks, his time is done.

    Unfortunately, it feels like to me that if Bynum has a good game tonight Jim “Dr. unqualified” Buss will say hey, see my Bynum is better than Dwight, and if Dwight dominates, then the Magic will say, boy, we can’t make this trade.

    I am going into a Laker depression!

    According to Wikipedia:

    2003

    In December 2003, arbitrator Roger Kaplan ruled that Jones violated National Football League Players Association regulations in his financial dealings with NFL player Ebenezer Ekuban. Jones received a two-year suspension, prohibiting him from representing NFL players until February 26, 2005. Jones later sued Ekuban and his attorney for slander and libel leading to Ekuban declaring bankruptcy in 2003. Former player Cris Dishman won a $396,000 judgment against Jones involving a bad investment. Jones later counter sued Cris Dishman and his former wife Karen Dishman, the previous matter was declared settled and Jones received a money judgment against both Cris and Karen Dishman in 2006 for their part in illegally trying to extort more money from Jones.
    [edit] 2007

    On June 14, 2007, he was arrested by the FBI on charges of mortgage fraud in a 42 million dollar scheme to rip off three Houston area banks. Bond is set at $100,000. Trial date was set for August 6, 2007.[1]
    [edit] 2008

    On May, 2008 charges were dismissed by the Government.

    Never should have let Sean Jones go Al!

    Why does it seem like busines as usual?? I thought we were done bringing in former Raider rejects when Davis died and big Reg was hired….

    Oakland has a plain to build New Stadiums for the A’s, Warriors & RAIDERS next to the current 1. The plan is called Coliseum City. When I was born in the70s Oakland might have been the sports capital of the nation, winning 3 World Series, a Super Bowl, and NBA championship, & had a Hockey Team & Roller Derby, by 2017 Oakland could have no sports teams. The plan also calls for a convention center and Mall next to the Stadiums. It will be cheaper to build the stadiums here because the city already owns the land the infrastructure is already in place , & since it will be built on already developed land a lot of the environmental impact staff won’t have to be done. A new parking lot won’t be necessary because they will use the current Coliseum Parking lot. It will be much cheaper to build it here than anywhere else in the state, but it will still take money from the county, private investors as well as the teams and fans in the form of PSLs to make this happen. Check out the plan

    The Sports Xchange

    The Sports Xchange has learned that the Raiders are close to adding former NFL defensive end Sean Jones as assistant general manager to new GM Reggie McKenzie.

    In recent months, Jones lobbied hard behind the scenes for either the GM job or a position of influence within the reshaped front office.

    Jones played 13 seasons, including four for the Raiders (1984-87) when they were in Los Angeles, had previously worked in the club’s front office, and at one time had been a financial consultant to several league players.

    Jones was charged in 2003 with violating NFLPA rules for agents/financial consultants, in cases brought by Ebenezer Ekuban and Cris Dishman. The latter subsequently won a judgment against Jones. In ’07, Jones was arrested by the FBI and charged with mortgage fraud, but those charges eventually were dropped.

    Some of his background dealings aside, Jones is considered a very good judge of talent. But there are some people who have counseled new Raiders owner Mark Davis since the death of his father, Al Davis, who were not enamored of Jones and who weren’t exactly in favor of his hiring.

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/sports_blog/2012/01/should-mark-davis-move-the-oakland-raiders-back-to-la-poll.html

    Mark Davis said #1 that “we are trying to build a stadium here” meaning Oakland. Then he said” if we can’t build a Stadium in Oakland, we’ve been researching other sites in Northern California and talking with people in Southern California. If we can’t get a stadium build in Oakland than LA is a possibility, anywhere is a possibility.” LA times is doing a poll to see how many people want the Raiders in L.A. The good news for REAL Oakland Raiders fans is that the people developing the New LA stadium want some control & ownership of the Team they bring in & the Davis family will never give up any control of the Raiders. But Real OAKLAND Raider Fans must stop this LA momentum. Vote No to bringing the Raiders to LA.

  • Dakota

    Sounds like Jones got out of all those issues with clean hands.

    Maybe he can sign players to contracts that will end up giving money back to the Raiders lol.

    Published May 17, 2008

    The federal government has quietly dismissed charges against a Friendswood attorney-turned-developer, a former NFL player and three other men accused last year of defrauding three Houston banks in a multimillion dollar mortgage scheme.

    The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Houston sought the dismissal, which was granted Monday, of a 12-count indictment against Friendswood attorney and island loft developer Jerome Karam; former NFL defensive lineman Sean Jones; former loan officers Tommy Jay Trammel and David Ranostaj; and Houston real estate appraiser Jay Westrick.

    Federal officials, who issued a news release when the indictments were handed up, would not say Friday why the charges were dismissed. The court’s order was sealed from public view.

    Attorneys representing each of the men either did not return phone calls Friday or said they were prevented from discussing the case.

    On June 14 last year, Karam, 45, pleaded not guilty at an arraignment before a U.S. magistrate in Houston to bank-fraud charges alleging he and the other four men perpetrated a mortgage-fraud scheme from 1999 to 2001 to acquire more than $42 million in loans from three different banks based on false appraisals.

    According to the indictment, the scheme was the same at each bank — “collusion between the seller, buyer/borrower and lender to lend more money than the property was worth, and thereby reap personal profit. Most properties were appraised by the same appraiser and all closed at the same title company.”

    Let’s hope that Jones will channel his predilection toward finnagling toward transition to dynasty, since he seems to have beat the federal by a hair’s width. He was, however, hired by the raiders during Art Shell’s most recent HC stint and was fired because the Raiders had a 2-14 record, according to Raider attorney Mark Barrens.

  • If anyone’s interested, I just sent this to Mike Silver (using Yahoo’s feedback form):

    “Why do you continue to bash the Raiders, Mark Davis and Reggie McKenzie every chance you get? Isn’t it a little unprofessional to be acting as Hue Jackson’s press agent?”

    Cork called Herrera, and Herrera was like, that’s untrue! Too bad Herrera is now the last person to know. My sources tell me Herrera’s duties have been cut back to Overhead projector Maintenance worker and the Polisher of the Three SB Trophies.

  • al d. davis

    since he seems to have beat the federal charges *** by a hair’s width.

    BTW, Sean Jones, who also was a percentage owner of a wealth management company 8 yrs ago was investigated for financical improprities associated with same that company. He wiggled out of those charges too.

    If Jones can re-direct his bent for hornswagglery toward creating dynasty maybe he’ll have some value.

    From the way he writes you can almost picture Brownstains in a dilapidated filthy trailer wearing a dirty wife beater eating pork and beans out of the can with a plastic fork. Watching Jerry Springer and twitching while picking at his facial acne because he is eagerly awaiting the arrival of his meth dealer with his $20 sack.

    So what if he hired him bfd. The dude needs an intern. Can’t blame him. My gut tells me he did hire him and it’s way past lunch. We got a HC yet?

    RaiderDuck #23:

    Mike Silver is a skinny little lady-boy, who couldn’t write his way out of a wet paper bag. How he became Yahoo’s resident sports guru is beyond me. When facts are unavailable he turns to butt-ugly speculation, i.e., the Mark Davis firing of Hue the Pimpin Magnificient after the Pimpin the Magnificient witnessed a rude dismissal of Mark by Stank AL during a meeting.

    Silver is a gossipy lil weird queer with a continual brown racing stripe in his overly-tight undershorts.

    BTW, did anyone hear he’d been seen with Jerry Sandusky, naked from the waist down ?

  • Silverandblack666

    Now that he is grown up after years of mental and physical abuse he hides away in his trailer park in hopes that no one will recognize him.

    A republican who leaches off society because he is too feeble minded and mentally abused to find a job at the local Taco Bell.

    Yet the little guy tries hard every day to finally say something relevant in our Blog.

    I almost feel sorry for him ALMOST!

  • Dakota, once I found out that Jerry Buss had given control to his nimwit son Jim Buss, and reduced Jeanne Buss’s role and that of KupChuck, I knew the Laker’s would deteriorate. Getting rid of all things Phil Jackson including the triangle would weaken the team. The hiring of Mike Brown was another dumb move. At least Mark Davis said “I know what I don’t know.” Unfortunately, Jim Buss is trying to prove himself at the expense of the team. The Odom debacle was another stupid move.

    “Silver is a gossipy lil weird queer with a continual brown racing stripe in his overly-tight undershorts.

    I would bet that old Brownstains can relate as he is as much of a failure at life as Silver is at writing.

  • What a splash Reggie is making! Im on the edge of my seat waiting for his next shrewd move.

    If/when OaklandLive/Coliseum City gets built, there’ll be a new Santa Clara stadium, maybe 1-2 new LA stadiums, a new Vikings stadium, so imagine the fight for winning the bid to host the Super Bowl. It could mean a long time before Oakland sees it, or, a typical biased situation where the NFL awards it to Santa Clara over the Coliseum City.

    I agree 100%

    Our only hope is that Dr. Buss will live long enough to realize what a mistake it was to put his son in charge and then hand the team over to Jeanie and put Jimmy Boy in charge of parking and timeout entertainment.

    That splash is feces laced toilet water bouncing back up to your sack while you sit on your throne. Don’t try to sit on the edge of your seat you might get a shlt stain on your toilet seat!

    Leave it to the guy with the 65 IQ to judge a GM of a football team.

  • al d. davis

    Regarding the Lakers apparent deterioration:

    They are in transition. Kobe is over the hill. The trading of LaMarr Odom as an illusory condition that may or may not have put the Raiders in the game for acquiring Howard, was assinine, except that LaMarr is way past his prime and not much good anymore.

    Lakers do have Andrew, who is dominant if he can stay healthy, which is very questionable.

    Bottom line is Lakers need to totally rebuild and acquire two young dynasty players with the potential of Kobe, as he was at 18 yrs of age.
