Report: Allen signs 4-year contract

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, January 26th, 2012 at 4:42 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    Bowles isn’t being promoted to Dcoordinator in Miami. I liked what I read about him, wonder if he will be considered about Allen.

    I know Michael Douglas is no genius, but he said something interesting on, I think, Charlie Rose on PBS when promoting that Wall Street sequel a couple years back. He said that 18th century belonged to the French, the 19th century to England, the 20th century to America(something like that, I’m paraphrasing, I don’t know the timelines myself…), and that’s just it. The 21st century is going to belong to a new empire (China?). Every century or so, the power shifts. Our time just could be up.

    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.

    Can’t wait for the press conference! Just to look at Mark Davis hair to laugh my ass off.

    It’d be funny to see everybody in the Black Hole sporting Mark’s dubious hair do as a show of support.

    “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.

    Luvmarv, if karma truly exists, its out of both of our hands. We can argue about it all we want. Karma will have in store for us what it has in store for us. You can’t look karma in the eye and say, “hey, other countries did it too”. Anymore than you could look at St. Peter at the pearly gates and tell him that others have committed the sins you’ve committed. Too late for that.

  • luvmarvhub

    BTW, Sullivan,

    Go back and study the enslavement of Amerindians by other Amerindians. You can go all the way back to the 1600s and read accounts of it by the earliest Euros who witnessed such things and were enslaved themselves.

    Or you can read more up-to-date accounts. Wow. Talk about violent. My poor Cherokee ancestors were pretty darned passive, poor things.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Could it be the real difference between the American liberal and the American conservative is that the American liberal takes full accountability for America’s wrong doing, America’s sins, and seeks redemption, while the American conservative deflects blame and makes excuses? If there’s someone up there watching, you tell me who’s in better with them.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Luvmarv, if what you say is true, it only means they’ll face the music as well. If karma or Christianity exists, you’re not going to get out of damnation or ruin just because someone else did it too. Not how it works.

    Correct. Hence the conflict in Iran, with China-Soviet-Sino interests being threatened, and them being dragged into it – particularly if war in Pakistan is an option.
    War will be waged to obstruct China’s eventual empire – it will be done through the balkanization and weakening of the Middle East- Syria first to weaken Iran, then some R2P Humanitarian “Crisis” will be foisted on to the public to gain sympathy and public consent/ and Congressonal “act” to attack Iran.

    Not a one of you talking back and forth have any idea how hard life is for most of the 7 billion that live on this planet.

    All your talk about the demise of this and that….

    Going forward, size, scale and wealth will determine what people have an ability to craft their own destiny.

    For you frontier guys….a small nation made up of individuals can’t defend itself economically or militarily.

    You will get taken over. Every culture in the world that was unable to achieve scale, wealth, education etc….was absorbed either directly or indirectly.

    You all should be hoping the USA (us) get this right.

    The USA (US) wont get it right, because its policies are being run by someone else.

    football talk?

    You have to have a top flight QB to win SB’s in this Era. Since 1993, 2 teams have won without one, Ravens 2001 and Bucs 2003.

    We become a playoff team with our new coach, fixing the stanky Defense.

    BUT

    Until you get that QB, it’s rare to win it all without one.

    We should trade CP for Tony Romo,….lol.

    “Could it be the real difference between the American liberal and the American conservative is that the American liberal takes full accountability for America’s wrong doing, America’s sins, and seeks redemption, while the American conservative deflects blame and makes excuses?”

    What a joke. As my friend the social scientist pointed out, “There is a strong, positive correlation between being liberal and living as far away from poor ethnic people as possible.”

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Romney’s solution for the economy may as well be to punch himself in the face. 0bama beats either Romney or Gingrich 52%-48. He’ll just outclass Gingrich. Gingrich is already overplaying the “food stamp” thing. He’s no Reagan. Can’t sell it.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Luvmarv, tell that to Newt. He calls 0bama the “food stamp” president. Would these liberals moved far away from ethnic people be on food stamps?

    303, Herrera and those clowns still run the p.r. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out why they’re downplaying the obvious regime change there. Bottom line is Allen is signed. Mark and Reggie are in motion. Herrera and Al’s leftover goons can play all the games they want. Frankly, I think Mark is doing that thing where he’s not going to fire them, he’s just going to give them the hint. They’re out. They know where the door is.

    Our problems are all fixable.

    Most people around the world live in utter poverty and despotism.

    And if this country melted down as many of you believe.

    The replacement will be true totalitarianism….not the make-believe goblins you all make up.

    Buck up

  • Dakota

    Like frog face said back during bush-Clinton…. It’s the economy stupid. Independent voters will decide the election. They won’t buy the “it could be worse” campaign. The prez is in trouble against Romney who will appeal to the middle.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    SnB, I never said the country would melt down. Just said we won’t be an empire anymore. We’ll be like England and France, failed empires. Question is, could the American white conservative handle sharing this country’s benefits with people of color? So far we see how they’re taking it. It’s going to be a rough transition. Wouldn’t be surprised if some of them foolishly try to start a revolution against an army that will be backed by Israel and China. lol. Good times. But when that dust settles, they’ll have no choice but to adapt.

    I have no idea if it exists, Sully, but you know that wasn’t the point. Everyone noticed that you restricted your comments to this country when historically, as a period in history, we are less defined by slavery and enslavement by class and gender than any other nation on earth. E-V-E-R.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Romney’s going to appeal to the middle, with no economic plan whatsoever, Dakota? I’m sure the middle will definitely relate to the absurdly low tax rate Romney’s paying, despite his wealth. I’m sure the middle will relate to the fact that Romney made it rich through a firm that gutted struggling companies. That just resonates with the middle of those road independents, Dakota.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Luvmarv, I was just saying that no deity would ever fall for your excuse making and deflection of blame when it comes to America’s wrong doing, that’s all.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    No Sulli, we wouldn’t be like England or France. England and France had an American benefactor…without the USA they would have succomed to a superior German technology or Russian muscle…

    Our future would be the total dismemberment by enemies foreign and domestic and it wouldn’t be pretty.

    I hate thinking about such things because you only get 1 life to live….and having to live that life in survival mode is not something I am remotely interested in finding out.

    As for White Conservatives…the only injustice in the USA is the unequal levels of education to our children.

    All the other stuff is B.S

  • luvmarvhub

    Sully,

    I repeat–Romney, a very wealthy man, paid 40% of his 2011 wealth to taxes and charity. Good man.

    Besides, I don’t want to take another’s money. I want to earn my own way. Don’t you? I want my children to feel they are obligated to pay their own way. Don’t you? I want my kids to learn the value of being productive, not living off the efforts or even the luck of others, don’t you? And when I die, if there’s anything left, big or small, I want my kids and grandkids to get what I have worked for all my life not strangers who eat bag after bag of Doritos and drink beer (or Purple Drank)while they watch Jerry Springer while their own kids run around in dirty diapers, don’t you?

    Americans spend all kinds of money teaching people to fish for themselves, but a growing number don’t want to pick up the rod and bait the hook–too much trouble.

    BTW, for a guy who’s into liberalism, I’d think you’d forgo professional sports. After all, a bunch of rich owners, a bunch of spoiled rich athletes who blow their money on materialistic nothingness, and who are, in large measure, bad role models for kids.

    Hmmmm.

    “Luvmarv, I was just saying that no deity would ever fall for your excuse making and deflection of blame when it comes to America’s wrong doing, that’s all.”

    No, dear, that is not what you “were saying”–go back to your first post on the subject.

    And, it wasn’t a “deflection”–just a statement of fact about what you termed “karma”–that if karma catches up with this country, it would have to catch up with Africa, Asia, and all of humanity, even today’s humanity. That’s if you believe in karma, of course.
