    Chris Mortensen reporting on ESPN now. Al Davis is such a joke, he doesn't intend to honor his contract either. Who, in their right mind, would ever work for this joker?

    he's such an *****. How many coaches in how many years is that now? You gotta give a coach longer than that, especially when they're trying to fix what is already broken.

    EDIT: the word above shown as ***** is pronounced "it-e-it". is that a bad word now?

    no but several years ago I took out the word idiots (without the s - you can spell it plural) & most of the personal attacks dropped. It is hard to sound credible calling someone an idiots.

    Rome said that Kiffin was fired over the phone by Davis. He also said Kiffin was fired WITHOUT pay.

    I feel sorry for Kiffin as well as the entire Raiders Nation. That guy is a complete joke.

    Lane was an offensive coordinator for USC before the Raiders. His father on the other hand.......let me just say, I would pee in my pants if we ever landed him.

    IMO, he ranks right up there with the LeBeau's, Johnson's and the Ryan's. :)

    Good luck with trying to fire the guy without pay .. he is under contract and he will sue Al and the Raiders Organization.

    Al Davis did the exact same thing to Shanahan in 1989 and guess what, Shanahan didn't get his money.

    Yep, that was one of the first things Rome added. I reckon this isn't quite over yet.

    He did not get all of his money, but he did get some of it. But it is a pain in the rump.

    If you're a coach, why in the hell do you even take that job? i mean, the raider mystique has long since passed & at this point, Vince Lombardi couldn't even turn around these recent raider teams in 1 year.

    Someone needs to put that old geeser out of his misery & tell him to stop wearing hot ass sweat suits in august/september!

    I feel for Kiffin too, but by the same token, he knew it was a snake when he picked it up... .

    Rumor is offensive lne coach Tom Cable will take over as head coach. I'm very interested to see how that works out.

    Other than the 4th quarter, the Raiders have actually looked pretty good these past few weeks. With another year and the ability to control his own squad, I bet Kiffin could actually do something. I personally think Ryan was trying to undercut him
