A bit of a dick move, but then again it's Al Davis.

Hahhaahhaha. I believe that by the time we all have grandchildren, they will wonder how we could live in an age where leagues let owners have to much power. Seriously, there is one owner in every sport that their entire fan base just asks to be gotten rid of. Well, it is probably Ford in football, but Al Davis is looking more and more prime to be cut by the fanbase.

Probably because he won't have to pay him he remainder of his contract if he resigns.


We're honestly getting to Marge Schott levels. The NFL needs to step in and take the Raiders away from Al Davis. Yes it's a drastic and controversial move, but he's losing his mind. Coordinators were already turning down the job (hence why he had to hire a nobody from a college program). I wouldn't be suprised if the next coach is from high school, or Davis himself. Hopefully for Raiders' fans sake Rob Ryan will want it.

This just further proves Oakland will never get better until Al kicks the bucket and as bad as that sounds it's the honest truth

Al Davis is no doubt losing his mind. And has been for a decade now. I think he needs to come out of coaching retirement, and do it himself.

Does he not realize you cannot "just win baby" with a first year head coach every year.

I really do envy Green Bay a lot. I wish the team was not owned by the rich few, but by the real people that make sports as good as they are, the fans. Then again, if New York City owned its sports teams, I could imagine a new coach every year with the amount of fans that we have that can't stand to have 1 losing season.

That sounds like Al Davis to me.

But at $2 million a year I could put up with a lot before quitting.

The worse part is Al Davis is considering bringing in Dennis Green instead. I'll take Kiffin or Dennis anyday.

Yeah, why would anyone wants to risk job security to go coach for this mess that is the raiders now? If Kiffin resign, that mean a new HC, who will bring a new OC, who will mess up what JaMarcus learned last year, and destroy the shaky foundations made last year.

Also why would he let him coach Senior Bowl if he was planning on letting him go. He should of let him go earlier so that he could of been considered for some other HC jobs.

Al Davis probably can't name 10 people on his team. I encourage all Raider fans to hop on other team's bandwagons until this man is out of power.
