Is Russell attempting to come back and play?
Russell has good hustle, but he knows he can't play the Raiders again.
I wouldn't be surprised if he already spent it all...
Good luck Raiders in getting back 9.5mill worth of ribs, burgers, fries, and other assorted delicacies .
Just more evidence of the ineptness of the Raider's front office and ownership. At age 80, how much longer can Al Davis keep this charade going?
The Raiders were one of my favorite teams growing up, but now I just cringe every time I read about them.
I'd say quite a bit longer. His mom died at the age of 103...so we'll be seeing senile Al "alive and well" for at least another 10 years .
*EDIT* Guess Al isn't as senile as I thought, the man still has got (some of) it.
I guess I dont understand how you give a guy guaranteed money, cut him, and then file against him to get 10 million back. Does that make sense to anyone else? Its not like he quit the team. He was canned.
"Part of the guaranteed $32 million was originally in the form of salary advances for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons. A portion of those salaries is in question, according to the grievance."
Lol - Does the quote above sound like guaranteed money to anyone? So are the Raiders saying that of his 32 million guaranteed, only 22 million is guaranteed? That just sounds silly. You made the mistake of drafting him, or not being able to teach him and now you have to pay for your actions.
Al Davis has been doing this with players and coaches for some time now. Big surprise.
Remember when Warren Sapp said that playing for the Raiders was horrible? I still believe it.
