McClain is charted with assault, reckless endagermenet, menacing and wrongfil discharge of a firearm in a Nov. 30 incident while he was away from the Raiders attending the funeral of a relative.

Besides the criminal proceeding, McClain will be named in a civil lawsuit by the alleged victim, Rishard Tapscott, for damages.

    Usually DA’s try to make cases go away that involve current athletes. It’s all a biz, from top to bottom. People talk to each other. They work it out. Man, not in this case. This DA wants to hang McClain from a tree.

    ^^^^^^^
    Exactly. As an attorney friend of mine always says, “it’s all about the inter workings of inter personal relationships within the broken justice system”

    Man,i’d hate to be accused of something and have many of you on the jury.What you read in the papers isn’t always the facts that are presented in a courtroom yet you guys have him tried,convicted,and hung before the trial even starts.
    ++++++++++++++++++++

    Doesn’t really matter if he is convicted or not…..he has been found guilty of putting himself in a stupid position and hurting the Oakland Raiders when he was supposed to be at some funeral or some other BS excuse he made to get out of practice and hang with his idiotic friends.

    Guilty Guilty Guilty!
    ******************
    There is no denying that McClain was there and involved. Watch the video, McClain WAS there. He did nothing to stop any fight from occuring. His actions were stupid and brought a negative light upon the team and the league. He IS guilty of that REGARDLESS of whether or not he committed the alleged act of threatening someone and discharging a firearm near his head.

    Chris Johnson did what many of us would do. His heart wasn’t in it, the pain was too great for him! Some will use it as a big motivation to kick a** on the field in honor of their fallen family memmbers…However, sister was murdered and mother was fighting for her life! Not sure how I would be after!

  • lefty12

    Bcz-I’m not defending him.I’m saying let the facts come out in court before you hang him.Your statement proves my point- and Chris Johnson wasn’t out hanging with the homies and shooting up the block afterwards.

    I think so, If you want to win. Watch ESPN and other networks to get and opinions/ news, updating your roster every week based on your research, and you have to participate in the league.

  • DMAC

    I think some of you are making a big deal out of this incident. What I saw on the video was a one on one fight, w/ someone getting their ass kicked. When it looked like he had enough punishment, Jadarious Williams was pulled off the victim. We don’t know what the hell
    Rishard Tapscott did to piss them off.
    What was a little strange was that the sound on the video was clearly edited.
    I’ll let the legal system take care of it, before judging Romac.

  • lefty12

    He is 22 years old.22 year old guys get in fist-a-cuffs at times.It may not be right,but it happens.Why should he be held responsible for not stopping a fight?

    I used that exagerated statement delibrately. I believe McClain deserves his fair shot in court with regards to the legal system. BUT the mere fact that he put himself in such a stupid situation is enough for me to think he needs discipline in the NFL arena.

    Ben Rothlesburger was suspended for 6 games by the NFL for being in a stupid situation, and he was never convicted of any crime. I don’t hear any outcry for the innocence of the white guy….

    Mike Vick lost 18 months of his life, and over a HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS for his involvement in the dog fighting scandel. He suffered FAR greater penalties than his peers who were just as involved, because he is famous and in the public eye.

    When you are a millionaire and a public figure you are held to a higher standard, and subject to much stricter scrutiny in the public eye. If you don’t like it, get out of the public eye… in McClains case, leave the NFL.

    All I know is Rolando better pick up the attorney tab and court costs/fines for this other dude that got the charges, just so he can take one for the “team” and not feel the need to try to screw over Rolando.

    We NEED double-nickle on the field week 1!!!!

    To play or should I say, participate in fantasy football…you really have to have time don’t you?

    I dont think so, especially if you only play one league.
    Luck plays a big part, if your starters are not injured, for instance and have good years.
    You can be competitive and spend two hours a week tops.

    Dell does a fantastic job and its a lot of fun. We split the league in two 6 team divisions last year and there were real slim pickings on the wires.

    I recomended last year that Dell runs his league with ten teams. And because so many from here want to join he has another league.

    Someone else can run the other league/division because Dell has his hands full managing one. If Yahoo allows they can be tied together in some fashion.

    But it would operate as a minor league and at the end of the year the winner steps up to the pros and the last place team in the pros moves down to the semis.

    It was just a way to get more involved and slim the league back down to 10 teams.

    When you have 12 teams and almost all 12 are still working the wire you cant find anyone decent if injuries mount up

  • Just Fire Baby

    I only remained in the league last year because I thought it would be crappy of me to win the league and quit, without giving the other guys a chance at redemtion.

  • lefty12

    Rothlesburger wasn’t punished by the league for his first offense and what he was accused of was worse than what McClain is accused of.So far all McClain is guilty of is stupidity.If the NFL starts suspending players for stupidity it won’t be long before there isn’t enough players to play the games.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I am almost ran the table in Dell’s league last year, and I started Tebow for a few games at QB.

    The scoring system is fine. People that complain about it, probably were the ones who drafted a defense and never changed it.

    The key to my success. I think I started the defense that played the Bears in the Hanie era for a month straight.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Big Ben is the only player to be suspended by the league, without EVER being charged of a crime.

    Clearly Goodell has it in for Hungarian QB’s.

    Plenty of guys have been suspended without convictions, but there were charges pressed.

  • J Hill

    Kobe to Brooklyn for D Williams and 2 1st rd picks

  • Plunketthead

    “Exactly. As an attorney friend of mine always says, “it’s all about the inter workings of inter personal relationships within the broken justice system””

    Thats so true. Stewart Bell repped me before he became famous and he would look at the calender to see who the judge was and say, no problem.

    If he did not like the judge he had it moved and then dismissed.

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    Are you guys going to disclose the rankings from Dell’s FF league, or is that too private. lol

  • J Hill

    55 will certainly be suspended if he pleads guilty to any of these charges.

    Our offense will control the games this season, so I’m not worried about it.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Whoever Dell adds to the league, needs to be a little more involved in the trash talking dept.

    ‘Minorities’ Now Account For Majority Of US Births – Census Bureau

    DOW JONES

    The U.S. Census Bureau said Thursday that for the first time a slight majority of the nation’s population one year or younger are non-white. Just over 50% of those tots are racial minorities while 49.7% of the population 5 or younger is also non-white.

    There were 114 million total minority members in 2011, the Census Bureau estimates, making up 36.6% of the total U.S. population. Four states–Hawaii, California, New Mexico and Texas–and the District of Columbia have “majority-minority” populations, the Bureau said.

    Im not kidding. You have all the usual transactions that are plugged in ahead of time (many guys have 4 or 5 of these but I wont mention my name) but you dont always get who you want, so at one minute after midnight the wire is filled with deals from several managers.

    So think long and hard before you sign on to be embarassed
