McClain at OTAs, practicing

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, May 21st, 2012 at 10:20 am in Oakland Raiders.

There is no media availability until Tuesday, but checked in with the Raiders and was told Rolando McClain is in Alameda and practicing with the team while awaiting appeal on his conviction in Decatur, Ala. for assault, reckless endagerment, illegal discharge of a firearm and menacing.

McClain was sentenced last Thursday to 180 days in jail and fined $2,000 by a municipal court judge, then freed pending appeal. Appealing to the circuit court would include a jury trial. McClain’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg called the verdict “meaningless” in anticipation of a jury trial.

Rishard Tapscott, the victim in the case, identified McClain as the man who fired a gun next to his ear following a dispute. Tapscott has also filed a civil lawsuit against McClain.

The Raiders’ statement upon McClain’s conviction said “The team will continue to closely monitor the legal process, understanding that when appropriate the NFL will review the situation under its personal conduct policy.”

The club also has the option for disciplining McClain for conduct detrimental to the club _ the incident occurred on Nov. 30 while he was in Decatur for the funeral of a family member.

    I dont think its gonna be easy either way.

    When the Thunder go small with Durant at the 4, the Spurs will struggle to match up.

    Now that the Lakers lost maybe we can lose the basketball talk in here

    @silver

    probably about a 50% reduction. everybody knows I’m rooting for the Heat – the NBA team everybody loves to hate

    if they lose a game in this series or next, I’m sure I’ll hear about it!!

  • hwnrdr

    Here’s the thing I didn’t know…Spurs went 2-1 this year against OKC…all 3 games, Manu Ginobli wasn’t playing! But I have this feeling that the difference will be D-Fish! Don’t know why, but I think he will!

    Gasol & Bynum for Dwight, Turk & 2012 1st rd.

    Clippers need to hire SVG.

    NO!
    SVG to Clips may not be a bad idea!

  • Marks hair

    I dont hate the heat. I just dont think they have size or a 6th man.
    The lakers had no scoring off the bench either.. beeeeewww

  • http://repealitnow.org MistaBrown

    Bynum needs to get himself a pair of clippers and trim those stray grey hairs they are running wild on his dome and he looks like a silly freak!

    35.00 for some clips man, smh

  • Marks hair

    Spurs will win okc is a jump shooting team. The Lakers gave them games 2 & 3.. Thespurs dont & wont make those mistakes. They have the best offense in the league.. Fk the spurs..

  • Marks hair

    Bynum says he’s growin an afro for next yr.

  • DEATHROW 55

    Lakers have diccccchk slapped all these teams the past decade , they’ll reload and be back I wonder if all these Laker haters were all thunder, heat and clippers fans 5 yrs ago when they were just a muck of schhhitt. It must be fun to jump on the band wagon and talk schhhitt when your nemesis gets knocked out of play offs. It’s all good 16 banners and and I witnessed 5 of them can’t complain, I have a fealing ill see more to come!!!

    true, Mark

    I think the Heat were hoping they could get a lift off the bench from guys like Shane Battier, Mike Miller & Udonis Haslem. with Chris Bosh out, somebody needs to step it up!

    Wade & James have to combine for 70 points a game to even compete in games?

    Haslem showed up with 8 points in the 4th qtr of the last against against Indy. that was huge. hoping we might see more of that. Chalmers has a good game once in a while, too

    If you think I insulted you then you must be 12..?

    Or slightly feminine?

    I dont make my business insulting people on blogs, pretty dumb stuff.

    If we have had a debate before and your bitter about it days later, chances are I dont care. GET OVER IT.

    As for McClain I hope he does turn his personal life around. “Cash” does not buy class, but “change” does. Ethical people do what’s right before they make the bank.

    As far as on the field, not looking good. Ray Lewis had game before the big knife fight.
