Report: Allen signs 4-year contract


Dennis Allen signed a four-year contract to coach the Raiders, according to Kate Longworth of CSN Bay Area.
Allen and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie reached agreement on a contract Tuesday night in Mobile, Ala., where Allen interviewed for the second time.
The Raiders still have not confirmed the hiring. CSN says the introductory news conference is scheduled for Monday. Given the news conference will be broadcast on CSN, it’s a safe bet to say the Raiders have confirmed it to CSN.
McKenzie returned to Alameda on Wednesday. Allen should be through checking out pro prospects in Mobile today or Friday.
Allen could not be reached for comment. Two Raiders officials said they cannot confirm Allen signing a contract.

    Gnight, Dakota! Keep working that burrito cart!

    Brahs my manager just announced I might be doing a few super secret SF shows on the Wrecks N Effect publicity tour.

    Obviously will be traveling with my security team, the Beeech Dawgettes (4 totally wasted strippers) and my man on the turntable, DJ 10 Toes.

    We’ll be bringing the heat, now just gotta lock down that Bartles & James sponsorship

    You are out of your water here. Once you realize the senate is controlled by the dems and that the repubs have Only been in control of the house for one year then maybe we can talk.

    It takes 1 US Senator to filibuster. Are you smarter than an eighth grader?

  • MR, you going to the Pig Bowl?

    Leave it to the dems to have a majority in both the house and the senate for two years and coming off a huge election, and still com plain about not having enough power to get anything done! I don’t believe reagan had a republican controlled congress his entire two terms yet he managed to get things pushed through. I thought the prez was a great leader?

    Kinda weak and pathetic politically speaking.

    I think what is more pathetic is the Republicans ignoring the will of the people to happen

    Post 287, very well written.

    I am still in the mortgage industry (in whole sale) and yes fannie/freddy are still being exploited. I see it from my brokers all the time. You can actually still get a 1% or 3% downpayment mortgage. They do need to be phased out. You can let their fate be decided by the market but that would mean some MAJOR SHORT TERM pains (and I mean at least 5 yrs). I doubt there are enough politicians with balls to support the short term pains.


    A few months back, someone claiming to work with Fannie and Freddie posted on (I think) The Consumerist. He stated that he had just killed a proposed home loan for a single mother with two kids and a car payment who was GROSSING $2K/month. Everyone was mad at him for nixing it, but he rightly felt that she’d be late the first month, later the second month, and wouldn’t have the whole payment for the third month, which means they’d foreclose and everybody would be right back where they started. What would be the point? He couldn’t believe that ANYBODY had thought trying to sell this woman a house was a good idea.

    I heard something similar from my tax guy the other day. Unbelievable, isn’t it?

    “If you believe in karma, you have to believe that at some point America has to face some kind of demise for slaughter of native Americans, enslavement of blacks, etc. We can tell people to put it behind them. But if there’s such thing as karma, everyone pays.”

    If you’re right, it appear the whole world will face such karma, esp. those who are still practicing slavery.

    First, take the entire of the African continent, a place where slavery has always existed, as far as we can tell. All the descendants of those tribes who sold the members of others tribes into slavery would face such karma.

    However, we needn’t look to centuries ago for the enslavement of peoples by other peoples. Much of the African continent still practices slavery and the stealing of children from other tribes to use as slaves and as sacrifices to their gods.(Yes, they kill them). They also steal adults to use as barter or to use as slaves. And, we can’t forget the practice of female circumcision. God, the whole of Africa is, therefore, doomed, having to face karma.

    Then, there’s Asia, of course, where slavery is still practiced, from north Asia to Southeast Asia, where the sex slave practices make a lot of money for the practitioners.

    Ahhh, humanity.


    Uh, you’re leaving out the complete control of Africa and genocide of its people since the 1600s by England, and the monarchy, silly.

    Generations of British race patriots declared the British Empire the finest empire on earth and made sure that it would encircle the globe again. Your largely stereotyped arguments dont enclude the encirclement and OWNERSHIP, i.e. “Theft” of the Congo, by Leopold the 2nd, nor the complete utter theft by diamond merchants such as the DeBeers Dynasty, and the division of Africa by the European Monarchies, which advanced slavery – through equally corrupt africans and of course, JEWS. (some of whom traffic human organs from Haiti to this day).

    These kind of childish, misinformed statements and complete absence of real history is what is destroying America from within.
