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.

    woulnd’t be mad at lotuleiei either

    > yeah that dude would sit on you and you’d be lost forever.Jk, STAR or Te’o has to be the pick as of right now. could change. Star would make our pass rushers better by default.

    “Is he (RGIII) a brother, or is he a cornball brother?,” Parker said. “He’s not really. He’s black, he does his thing, but he’s not really down with the cause. He’s not one of us. He’s kind of black, but he’s not really like the kind of guy you really want to hang out with…..“I want to find about him,” Parker said. “I don’t know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee. Then there was all this talk about he’s a Republican, which there’s no information at all. I’m just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue””
    -Rob Parker

    ““RG3, the ethnicity or the color of his fiancee is none of our business, it’s irrelevant, he can live his life in whatever way he chooses. The braids that he has in his hair, that’s his business, that’s his life, he can live his life. I don’t judge someone’s blackness based on those kinds of things. I just don’t do that. I’m not that kind of guy.”

    >> RGIII is a republican!! thats funny. bet mistic wont be riding his ballsack anymore. RGIII is an intelligent kid i might even sport his jersey.

    Found 3 pass rushers in the last 10 years.

    Nice ratio.

  • Charlie

    Teo plays behind a great Dline.
    He would be neutralized with the Raiders unless we upgrade our Dline.
    (See McClain- He played behing a great dLine as well.)

    That is why the Packers draft Raji. Makes everyone else better.

    mistic: you said white people invented racism. they did not invent this: 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. sorry genius but that has been around since humans were hunter gatherers.you can’t prove otherwise.

    This is proof that white people invented the term race and all of its forms.

    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”.

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

    watching rgIII revolutionize the qb position has nothing to do with his political affiliation. Political affiliation doesnt determine if a person is black or if i will root for them on a ball field.

    I wouldnt care if he was a tea party member.

    sports is nothing more than entertainment business, and i dont look for heros in entertainers.

    Listening to DA presser on raiders.com : Asked whether he still believes in their scheme decisions despite the failures. He’s quite *curtly* points out that they have had ‘alot of changes’ and he still believes in what they are doing. Meaning? Its not his or the schemes fault, its the players, and expect the whole staff to return next year..

    ugghhhh…

  • Dakota

    Wheeler is okay….we tend to give more credit than deserved to average players around here, simply because we have seen so many bad players come through over the last 10 years.

    you are not making any sense

    the man who invented the term was white his name was friedrich blumenbach.

    This is the originator of the term, it couldnt be modified and put in dictionaries if it were not first invented by some one.

    The term did not exist before blumenbach

    I posted the actual history, can you produce anything to refute it other than your opinion?

    i believe star is a surefire can’t miss prospect of the draft and drafting him and signing a de still leaves a huge whole at mlb without mentioning cb.

    1. Star
    won’t be mad at werner moore or te’o

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

    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
