Report: Raiders expand talks with candidates about upper management role

This was filed by beat writer Jerry McDonald a few minutes ago:

The Raiders are talking with Scott O’Neil, the former president of Madison Square Garden , about a position as team president, according to a tweet Sunday by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

It is the second person reportedly involved in discussions with owner Mark Davis about an upper management position, joining NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson.

It is unclear what that position would mean to Raiders CEO Amy Trask and general manager Reggie McKenzie. Trask has been involved strictly on the business side since McKenzie arrived, including leading an effort for a new stadium.

McKenzie was asked about the reports of a team president while talking with local writers Thursday and said, “That’s a Mark Davis deal. I don’t want to give any leeway of his line of thinking on that. . . . I don’t want to divulge any information in that regard. I’ll let Mark answer those questions.

Davis was not available for comment.

O’Neil, 42, resigned his post as Madison Square Garden president in September after four years on the job. His responsibilities included overseeing the season-ticket and marketing operations of the New York Knicks and New York Rangers.

According to the New York Times, O’Neil “gradually increased his involvement in Knicks’ personnel decisions, often to the annoyance of the basketball operations staff.’’

    So a whiner fan stabs a Falcon fan after the game in Atlanta yet the Raider fans get the media’s abuse.What’s with SF fans always getting into trouble at stadiums-home and away?

  • dr_robert

    Well I guess I’ll be rooting for the niners. I don’t care for ray Lewis or the ravens. I like Jim harbaugh and kaepernick so it’s them.

    Either way it’s a white qb of the future!

    Yeah, you are right on that. I lived about a mile away from that incident when it happened. A lot of shady stuff went on. I still don’t recall all the details about the trial. There’s part of me that believes he was just with the wrong crowd, but there is another part of me that thinks he had something to do with it. And maybe because of that he turned into the god fearing preacher type we see before us.

    Whenever people mention that incident it always puts my thoughts ocheck with him.

    No Manning bowl, thankfully; however, there is about to be a Harbaugh Bowl.

    Lead-foot pocket passers are a thing of the past. Defenses have caught up. Time to adapt or die.

    At the very least, Ray Lewis is a snitch. Which makes him about as low a piece of schit as there is.

    But I cant bring myself to root for the Niners. No fvcking way.

    If not for the Ravens, we’d have either the Donkeys or Brady in the SuperBowl. Dont we owe it to them? How can any self respecting Raider fan root for the Niners. Its not possible.

    will harbaugh attempt a fake fg against bellicheat? not a chance…he has s little respect for him ow DA….lol

  • Dakota

    Too bad this matchup will destroy the harbaugh family.

    Oh well, maybe they will make a reality show out of it?

  • RaiderRetribution

    Raiders should move DHB to TE, he’s a better blocker than Meyers; still needs to take a pay cut though to league minimum.

    Ngata almost did Saragusa flop on brady lol

    1023. Possibly, and our dumb owner at the time would never have given Jim the opportunity to be our HC!

    Brady is goin’ down and that can’t be bad. This SB will be fun to watch two teams that basically mirror each other. Go Kappy! Jim was one of my favorites prior to taking that job so I’ll have to root for them…

  • J Hill

    I think Kapernicky’s mobility is going to be the difference.

    Both teams have great defenses.

    Both teams have QBs who can make some throws.

    Both have weapons around those QBs.

    Kapernicky’s ability to extend the play and make Baltimore account for him as a runner is an advantage.

    Kobe… forever blaming everyone but himself.

    Wishes he could be a leader but never takes any responsibility for the play of his TEAM.

    He’s no Jordan, that is once again proven. He’s no Magic. He’s no Bird.

    Hopefully it will put the myopic Kobe fans in their place for about a year or two. But I dont expect it to last. Kobe’s overrated stature has been proven time and time again and yet the moment the team is doing decent, the Kobe vs MJ talk starts up again.

    He’s got Steve Nash, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, and Ron Artest (who’s playing GREAT btw) on his team yet he still wants more talent around him.

    Kobe is a fraud.

    How about dumping Kobe while he still has some value. And getting a guy that can lead this team. A guy that understands chemistry and ball movement. A guy who will take this team on his shoulders rather than cry to the front office every time times get tough.
