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.

    Sully,

    How’s your depression over the Niners loss?

    Unlike angry liberals, independents understand that Romney already paid the highest income tax On his money when he earned it , and the tax rate he is now paying is on investment income, which means he invests his money in companies who give people jobs. Increase his taxes and the other 25% he gives to charities will be reduced and the money that is invested in companies that give people jobs will be decreased.

    Independents realize that the more mOney that goes to the government the more they spend.

    And people just have to look at Europe to see the fall of those socialized nations to see what the left desires is unsustainable.

    Romney is center enough on social issues and on the real issue, the economy , he is able to show he has actual experience In the real world.

    The prez falls far short. He controlled congress for two years and couldnt bring the economy back. His promises ring false now that he has proven himself as unable to get the job done.

    Big changes in Oakland, Raccoon. I don’t even care if we have a worse record than last year. We have a modern day NFL structure now. GM and HC with clean slates, both endorsed by some pretty big names. Can’t wait.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Dakota, yeah, independents will entirely forget about Bush’s role in what our economy is today. That’s what Republicans like you don’t understand. Independents aren’t stupid.

    Sully said.

    “LuvMarv, this conversation ended when you tried to morph Romney’s “charity” into the tax debate. Oldest 1 percent tactic in the book. Move along.”

    Yes, charity. Lots of it. I give to charity, do you? I don’t give the % of income to charity that Romney did, though. Do you?

    Move along? You’re trying to change the subject. Oldest tactic in the book. You’re very transparent. Very needy. Are you married?

    We should draft the best QB available this year with our first pick, btw. Or trade for one. You draft for 3 years down the road. I’d say we will need a QB in 3 years.

  • Dakota

    Well mr I hope the prez will try running another blame bush campaign. The “I suck , but bush was worse” campaign might have worked, if bush was running, but the people are going to start holding the prez responsible for the state of the nation. They want seine who can get things back on track, and a guy who knows how to trim the fat, make businesses more efficient, and the leave behind a profitable business will be a very appealing candidate to the middle.

    Everyone wishes the prez would have turned into the savior he presented himself as, but it just didn’t happen. Time for some hope and change!

  • djohnnyg

    I’ll be watching pre-season very closely this coming season for the fact that almost every “trend” we saw this past yr. carried on to the reg. season. Not the final scores; that doesn’t matter, but we saw a defense that was porous and couldn’t stop anybody, some solid offensive output, poor kick covering, lack of depth, etc. etc.

    I’ll be looking for this team to show some new “attitude” and i’ll be paying close attention to “adjustments” in the defense- however vanilla it will be.

    Dakota, how would blaming Bush hurt any candidate? Do you have any idea how much of this country hates Bush, and knows he’s to blame for this economy? There is no scientific argument demonstrating that blaming Bush would hurt any candidate. Republicans are just saying don’t blame Bush. I say, blame him! Candidates could get elected into the white house for the next 20 years blaming Bush. And 0bama will get re-elected this year doing so. lol. Like Bush is some sacred figure in America or something. He’s one of America’s favorite punching bags, and will be for a generation.

    —————
    I understand you live in Dakota. But there is the internet so please tell me you’re not this naive. You DONT fix an economy in 2 years after it was trashed in 8. It will take at least 20 yrs to fix the schytttt we are in if we dont fugg it up again. Please identify one industry that would rescue America out of this mess right now?

    Recession after VN war, rescued by Reagan borrowing money and putting in the defense industry. Yes he borrowed money and spent more.

    Recession after the first gulf war, rescued by dotcom

    Recession after dotbomb, rescued by the fake mortgage boom

    Recession after the fake mortgage boom, rescued by what? I guarantee you that you aint got any answer.

    0bama got more votes than any presidential candidate in American history blaming Bush, and blaming him often! Yeah. What a failed strategy! Ha ha! Haaaaa!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    lol @ president controlled congress.

  • aig-raiders

    You should really get off Fix News and actually read articles from a few sources.

  • Dakota

    When the real unemployment rate, those looking for jobs now and those who have been looking for jobs long enough to just be dropped off the count, when that number is 15.6%, the sitting prez is in deep trouble.

    People are no longer looking for a scapegoat like bush, they want someone who can do something about it. Romney is proven that he can accomplish real world growth. The prez doesn’t have a leg tO stand on in that fight.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    0bama never had filibuster proof congress. Some people are so stupid. They just repeat anything they hear on Foxnews.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    The prez is in deep trouble? HA ha!!!! Is he losing to Gingrich or Romney on one single poll yet?

    Yeah I wouldn’t freak if we regressed a little in the win loss column, IF it was for good reason. Like totaly revamping the roster, which would cause a short term lack of talent and production, for futer draft picks. I would not be ok with consistantly poor game management, or lack of preparedness, or low energy on the field.

    If we keep 80% of the starters we MUST be 9-7 and in the playoffs or better.

  • aig-raiders

    I love how they say our President apologize and appease. Yup he authorized an incursion in Pakistan and apologized to Bin Laden. Then he apologized to his Muslim friends in Africa the other nite too. Seesh.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    0bama wins 52% to 48, against either Gingrich or Romney. Paul goes and does something stupid like run as an independent? 0bama 60%, Paul 20, Gingrich or Romney 20.

  • aig-raiders

    Mitt Rommey?

    Isnt 0biecare a knock off of Mitt Romneycare? Checked!

    He pays 13% on his taxes and was so patriotic he hid his money in the Cayman. Checked!

    Newt?

    Fat chance. No pun intended.

    Paul? I actually like him. But his racist past and his looks will never get him elected. The soccer moms will never vote for him.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    That’s the game they play with the prez, Aig. It’s just like what this Brewer is doing right now. If 0bama had sunk down to her level and fought with her, they’d scold him for acting like a thug, fighting with a girl, etc. He takes the high road, he’s “timid”.

  • Dakota

    Oh is that what a president needs now, a filibuster proof congress, to get anything done?

    What a great leader! Needs all the cards in the deck to win a hand. Do you realize what a pathetic light that places the prez in? Lol

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    0bama saw that trap with Brewer from a mile away, and just foiled it. Played it perfect. You know he’s got spies in the GOP. It’s not hard to infiltrate them. All you have to do is hate women, minorities, and progress, and you’ll fit right in and they’ll tell you everything.

    ::::::::::

    In my opinion we need to take 1-2 QB’s evert year until we have a true Franchise QB, and a compotent back up. Nothing is nearly as important to a franchise than the starting QB. That is step one, step 1A is an O- Line

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    You said he controlled congress, dummy. How do you control congress when your opposition party has power to filibuster? You have to google that, Dakota. They won’t answer that on FoxNews for you.

  • aig-raiders

    Oh is that what a president needs now, a filibuster proof congress, to get anything done?
    —————–
    There are 3 branches of govt. You need all three to get things done. Last that I checked, we aint South America or China.

    The president can only do so much with a Congress that has half of its members’ goal is to make sure HE FAILS. I am sure even you are well aware of it. Boehner couldnt even get his group in line to support Boehner’s grand bargain. Dude, do you even understand that?

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    I don’t think America is quite ready to go back to Republican economics, which Mitt Romney certainly represents.

  • hendu

    oops,Forgot,I love and respect Gov Brewer,you all want bs or the TRUTH,IMO

  • aig-raiders

    Help me understand how you are ok with paying more % of taxes from your own income than the guy running for President? I assume you are at least in the 20% bracket.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Aig, wasn’t there some memo retrieved where GOP told it’s congress members to reject everything coming from 0bama, no matter what? And with a power to filibuster on top of it. Dakota still thinks 0bama controlled congress just because Dems had the majority. It’s amazing how some people insist on talking politics when they don’t know crap.

  • Dakota

    Hey the prez deserves much credit for taking out a lot of terrorists. Awesome job on that front. Took a normally weak position for his party and made it a strength.

    However, historically, people care about the economy over every other issue. 15.6% real unemployment rate.

    If the economy was recovering at a decent rate, the prez would be untouchable, but it isn’t, so the election will be difficult for him. I know you guys wanted newt, but he was swatted away tonight.

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    Just the fact, that Romney wanted to let GM fail, will beat him.

    Now GM is the worlds best selling Automaker, again.

  • aig-raiders

    Gov Brewer never graduated from college and it showed her lack of class as a governor. She said she respected teh office of the Pres. If so, why did she grandstanded for the camera yesterday? I am sure the far right loved every minute of it though.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    National security a weak position for Democrats? Who was in the white house on 9/11/2011, Dakota? Who attacked the wrong country in response, gutting our treasury in the process? Dakota do you realize you’re getting dumber with each comment?

  • aig-raiders

    Nobody will ever look at it as 15.6%. The mainstream media is going to report 8.5%. Only the hardcore right will report it as 15.6%. Obie was never going to get the far right vote anyways.

    The question of the day is, are we better off today than we were in 2008? 100% YES.

    Yep, and everyone remembers how George Bush and the Republicans, ran the country into the ground

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    9/11/2001, I meant. Who was in the white house then? Hint: NOT a Democrat. So tell me again how strong Republicans are on national defense when the biggest attack in American history happens on their watch, and then they attack the wrong country in response, gutting the treasury and putting the war into the hands of their private contractor buddies in the process? Dakota Republicans just ruined this country. And that’s why 0bama will get reelected and why you won’t see a Republican in the white house again for 20 years.

    Under” free-market principles” it is the company’s responsibility to make itself more efficient, not the government.

  • aig-raiders

    Until the Republicans come in with better candidates than Paul, Romney, Newt or Rick, Obie is a slamdunk. Print that. I will wager $50 on any of you here that Obie will beat the above four. If Coburn comes in, then he will beat Obie. Until then, none of the above will have any chance.

  • Dakota

    Right, I didn’t hear you guys complaining about the do-nothing congress that sat on it’s hands for the last two years of the bush administration lol.

    Selective memory , but that is okay. Keep playing the bush card, it plays well with all your liberal friends but it is falling on deaf ears for the middle.

    Good luck with that strategy.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Uh, Dakota, maybe congress did nothing to help Bush because a) he allowed the biggest attack in American history to happen on his watch, b) attacked the wrong country in response, c) gutted the treasury in his war with the wrong country? Bush is lucky they weren’t impeaching him.

  • Try Some Reality

    The problems with our economy go well beyond the President’s office. This schit has been in the works for years. We will never again have our old booming economy. Write that down. It will never come back. Not if we continue down the path we are going. Large corporations like Walmart have killed the American dream. Go and talk to all the small business owners that have been pushed out by these behemoths that only contribute to the rising rate of folks living in the red and relying on public funds for health care and essential needs.

    And then there’s China. Thanks to Nixon, we’re in bed with the devil. We complain about their very well documented human rights issues then turn around and feed the monster by becoming their largest trading partner.

    The future isn’t too bright folks. The American Dream is all but dead.

  • aig-raiders

    Bright stars for the Right are goign to be Scott Brown and Tom Coburn. One of those 2 guys will win the nomination. Scott Brown will prob lose in Mass to Warren but he is extremely appealing to most American voters in the middle.
