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.

    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.
    _______________________

    This Congress for the last two years has the most filibusters on the record of any Congress in history. A Republican congress.

  • Dakota

    I see how you think maddenraider, an attack that happened about eight months into the bush administration is bushes fault, but three years into 0bama administration we are still not allowed to place any responsibilty on him for the current economy. Lol

    Sad

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Dakota, the economy could go into the tank, total depression. 0bama’s still winning. America is not putting a Republican back into the white house for at least 20 years. You know that.

  • aig-raiders

    Post 249 is dead on. Very nice.

    I’d add Apple to that group too. Sure they are doing R&D here but they are using cheap mfg in China. We’ve got to bring mfg back to states like Ohio. Not sure if that will ever happen though. Intel is investing big time to mfg in Chandler, AZ.

    Dakota, Bush was given prior intelligence of the 9/11 attacks. FACT. Common knowledge. That excuse stopped flying years ago. He did nothing. A do-nothing president gets a do-nothing congress. LIke I said, he’s lucky Democrats didn’t impeach him when they took over in ’06. I don’t know why they didn’t.

    The prez will have a major challenge now.

    =======================================

    “Major challenge” might be overstating things. Mitt is very weak: He has constantly shifted positions (to the point where I don’t think anyone knows what he truly stands for), lost two of the three major races he’s run in, would have lost by double-digits if he’d run for re-election in Massachusetts, and on the GOP’s signature bogeyman issue (”@bamacare”), crafted something very similar when he was Governor.

    There’s also Bain Capital, which will be painted as “making million$ by firing people,” and finally an untold number of evangelicals who will refuse to vote for a Mormon. Can’t elect someone who believes in a slightly different imaginary friend in the sky, now can we?

    ughhhhh!!!!! dude, here you go…..per wiki

    Senate
    Main article: Filibuster in the United States Senate

    In the United States Senate, rules permit a senator, or a series of senators, to speak for as long as they wish and on any topic they choose, unless “three-fifths of the Senators duly chosen and sworn”[36] (usually 60 out of 100 senators) brings debate to a close by invoking cloture under Senate Rule XXII.

    Yup. That was it. Ridiculous that inserting the name of the President of the United States will cause a post to be blocked. When he has the 2013 Raiders to the White House after the Super Bowl win, will we have to call him “Pres Whatshisface?”

    After the tramp left for her shift at Spearmint Rhino, I smoked some weed, ate a tub of Quarterback Crunch from Baskin Robbins and dropped a duece a mule would be proud of.

    Virginia and N. Carolina much more diverse now, two states 0bama won in 2008. A lot of med. sized cities in Ohio and Fla have grown larger, more ethnically and culturally diverse. The angry racists in those states don’t have the pull they used to.

    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 complain 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.

  • http://www.addictedtoquack.com RaiderDuck

    Part of the GOP’s problem is that the Prez is a formidable campaigner, probably the best since Kennedy (and maybe even better). There’s a reason the GOP A-listers (Mitch Daniels, Chris Christie, Haley Barbour, Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan) all sat this one out.

  • luvmarvhub

    Fannie and Freddie–affirmative action in housing loans that caused the housing collapse, and yes, Bush, along with Franklin Raines, Barney (I am getting married soon ) Frank, Maxine Watters and the Dems were all over this.

    Ever since his days as Gov. of Texas, Bush believed that people who owned their own homes would create better neighborhoods. (Too bad he didn’t realize that they should have to be able to afford them). Of course, his buddy, Karl Rove, thought this would get him votes too, but Bush believed in the policy as “compassionate conservatism.” Truly.

    However, he was stupid, and the others were feathering their minority nests, trolling for votes. You don’t give people something that’s worth a lot for free or for very little. That’s true whether it’s giving your kid a new video game or giving people a house with little to no down payment.

    Lots of people love to blame the banks and brokerage firms, but early in the game, they were actually ORDERED to give these loans to people who, in previous years, would be considered bad risks. It was simply too easy to conclude that housing values would continue to rise, something sane people would have questioned, but beyond that, you need to require a decent down payment.

    Both parties were to blame for that. The Pres, the Dem-controlled Fanny and Freddie. Fanny and Freddie need to be gradually phased out. For good. Forever and ever.

    ==========================================

    Part of it is the increasing reliance on the threat of a filibuster. Now, having 60 Senators is pretty much a requirement for any major piece of legislation. If you don’t have 60 votes, then you’re not getting it passed.

    Again. I love debunking your myths on politics.

    1. Reagan and Oneil actually would have drinks together after 5pm. Oneil actually had his crew on a tight leash so Reagan can negotiate with Oneil and know that Oneil will deliver. Boehner and his crew? NOPE.

    2. I doubt Oneil was ever quoted that his number 1 priority is to make sure Reagan fails.

    Quite the opposite. Tip believed that since Reagan was elected President, his agenda deserved a fair hearing and an up-or-down vote. Boehner and co. do not extend our current President the same courtesy. They just plain don’t.

    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.
