McClain still running with scout team

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, December 13th, 2012 at 11:50 am in Oakland Raiders.

Middle linebacker Rolando McClain is at practice for the second straight day since his return from a two-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. Don’t count on seeing him on the field anytime soon.
McClain was spotted wearing a green beanie over his helmet, a designation used to indicate that he is a player on the scout team.
Coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday that McClain will be a backup linebacker and special teams player. It’s conceivable that McClain won’t even be active for any of Oakland’s remaining three games.
It seems logical that the Raiders are holding on to McClain until teams are allowed to trade in the offseason, at which point they can attempt to get a draft pick in return.

– Strong safety Tyvon Branch is the only player not at practice today. He’s still nursing ankle and neck injuries.

– No word from the Raiders yet on whether Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs sold enough tickets for the game to be televised locally.
Six of Oakland’s first seven regular-season games were televised locally. It’s a stretch to envision the Raiders selling at leasat 85 percent of the tickets for this game, considering the Raiders are 3-10 and the Chiefs 2-11.

    Or Kwame Harris, or Cornell Green, or resign Kalif Barnes and Cooper Carlisle. Since it is the ZBS allows these types of players to flourish.

    —-

    Carlisle doesnt belong in that bunch.

    He does not belong in the NFL

    —-

    He was a good signing. He’s old now. Its life.

    lol

    .. na I;m jut being told that i invented fearing people because of their skin color. fear of what you don’t understand based on race didn’t exist in human history until 1500. thats what I;m being told here. its just to stupid to let go
    =============

    You are deliberatly changing what i said to fit your agenda.

    i didn’t say anything about fearing people based on skin color. or fear based on race or any of that other garbage you are trying to attribute to me.

    i gave you the ORIGIN OF THE TERM RACE AND ALL ITS FORMS, AND THE MEANING AND PURPOSE OF ITS INVENTION. I ALSO GAVE YOU THE FOUNDER OF THE TERM.

    dislike and fear are emotions they are not racism, which is a system.

    There is no record anywhere on earth of black people in amerikkka, such a system to enslave or dominate anyone.
    ==============================================
    So that’s the definition of racism you subscribe to ?

    You can only be a racist if you’re enslaving or dominating someone ?
    ============

    it isnt my definition

    it is the definition and purpose of those that invented the terminology in the first place

    Im sorry they didnt teach you that in english class

    racism is a power construct not an emotion

    dont take my word for it

    take a look

    Biography of Johann Friedrich Blumenbach

    Physician, anthropologist, naturalist, physiologist, historian and bibliographer, Johann Friedrich Blumenbach is generally regarded as the founder of physical and scientific anthropology. He first used the word ”race” in 1775 to classify humans into five divisions: Caucasian, Mongolian, Ethiopian, American, and Malay. Blumenbach also coined the term “Caucasian” because he believed that the Caucasus region of Asia Minor produced “the most beautiful race of men”.

    so you can clearly see i have nothing to do with any definition i only use the language as it is intended to be used
    =============================================
    No, that’s not what you’re doing.

    Your position is that black racism doesn’t exist and can’t exist due to a ‘power construct’.

    According to your defintion one can only be racist if one is enslaving or dominating.

    Did you get that from Blumenbach ?

    Whoever it was that first coined the term ‘race’ and which race he thought most beautiful is completely irrelevant to your ‘power construct’ thesis.

    Don’t know how you extrapolate that black racism doesn’t exist today based on whoever it was that first coined the term ‘race’ in the 18th century.

    But if it floats your boat to think that black racism can’t and doesn’t exist – sail away Captain.

    mistic: did you now that the japanese allow ZERO immigration in their country and their religion actually states that the their island is divine and the rest if us are beneath them?
    ===========

    1. The tiny island of japan has not oppressed black people in any way that in aware of

    2. a sovreign nation is free to set their own imigration laws

    3. how does any of this support you claim that there is a such thing as a so called black racist?

    4. asians oppressing asisns is not racism, just as whites oppressing whites isnt racism.

    the term race was invented to distinguish western Europeans from non whites (specifically black afrikans) by friedrich blumenbach

    this is matter of documented historical fact

    >.your original argument was that white people created racism:: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race .

    >> and they didn’t invent that. i don’t care about “classification” or hyphen labels. you said white people invented the hatred/ignorance that we all know as racism and you are Full of sh*t. end of dicussion. oh did you know that RGIII voted for Mitt Romney AND is marrying an evil slave owning white woman!! ouch

    Looking at a top 3 pick and you want a RT?!?!?!

    WOW..
    =======================================

    I don’t know if I would take one at 3 overall, maybe trade or take Long later. Or I could just watch Von Miller own the division for the next decade.

    Makes more sense to draft a LT top 3 and move Veldheer to RT.

    You dont draft a RT in the top 15. Sorry.

    :)
    =========================================

    I would agree. I like Joeckel, I don’t know if you really want to mess with Veldheer and move him. Best idea would be try to grab a RT later.

  • Charlie

    Build your core through the draft especially on the line of scrimmage.
    In the meantime you can use a free agent here and there to buy time till you draft the right guy or let the right guy develop.

    Once in a long while will you get a free agent that is a big difference maker(Gannon) and that usually happens when the team releasing the player has a percieved surplus of talent at the position (Grbac). Again, that will only happen when the rest of the base (Oline)is in place.

    As a rule free agents are “free” for a reason(injury history, attitude issues, high salary demands etc.) and rarely if ever produce up to their contracts.

    On a percentage basis, young hungry rookies with the salary cap in place are much better values.

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

    its very simple

    you keep saying that it is my definition.

    i proved that it isnt my definition but the definition of the man that invented the term frierich blumenbach

    next i demonstrated why the term was invented, by using the inventors own words “Caucasians are the greatest race of men”

    That is white supremacy at its core, notice the similarity to hitler and kkk dogma?

    this vehicle was invented for the sole use of whites against non whites (black specifically)

    you dont have to say ‘whoever it was that invented the term race”. This is not a mystery, it is documented historical fat where the term and concept originated and the man that brought it fourth.

    Black people in amerikkka are not in a psotion to exercise this kind of system to oppress any one. There is no history of black people in amerikkka ever wielding this power, only being victimized by it.

    THE TERM AND SYSTEM WERE INVENTED FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF ENSLAVING AND DOMINATING BLACK PEOPLE, AT THE EXCLUSIVE USE FOR THE WHITE SUPREMACIST.

    There is only one kind of racism, and only one group in amerikkka that has ever employed it, black people dont fit the description according to the inventor

    “The inventor of the term used it as a system of classifying people.”

    Yes, but he also believed that

    “Furthermore he concluded that Africans were not inferior to the rest of mankind ‘concerning healthy faculties of understanding, excellent natural talents and mental capacities’.

    ‘Finally, I am of opinion that after all these numerous instances I have brought together of negroes of capacity, it would not be difficult to mention entire well-known provinces of Europe, from out of which you would not easily expect to obtain off-hand such good authors, poets, philosophers, and correspondents of the Paris Academy; and on the other hand, there is no so-called savage nation known under the sun which has so much distinguished itself by such examples of perfectibility and original capacity for scientific culture, and thereby attached itself so closely to the most civilized nations of the earth, as the Negro.”

    ***********************************
    While the facts may be a bit skewed from a variety of standpoints. The premise is solid, it appears they invented and excuse to brutalize blacks and tried to establish scientific facts why this was a necessary practice. Whites folks have long believed they were doing blacks folks a favor by enslaving them. Many whites yet ascribe to this theory.

    They think if not for a white dominated society that blacks would sink into some grave state of being that they lack significant social skillset essentially a moronic society.

White and Black are not origins of birth! What are you talking about anyway? Go back in your family history with DNA and you might be shocked at what you find. I just think you are all hipocrites because you have no Family Arms and History to know the truth, so you want to pretend not me! LOL!
