I believe it is, Davis tried to get him to resign and Kiffin refused, now he wants to drag the whole thing through the courts. Classic Al move.

Found this on wikipedia. It's pretty old.

But it just goes to prove that if the ship is sinking the Captain is taking his whole crew with him.

Re: Raiders finally fire Kiffin

I think Al should just go back to coaching the Raiders. I want to see his team go 0-16 so he finally shuts the hell up about the "greatness of the raidas." Does he look like master splinter from the Ninja turtles to anyone else?

Re: Raiders finally fire Kiffin

Raiders offensive line coach Tom Cable has been chosen as the successor to Kiffin, NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports.

Re: Raiders finally fire Kiffin

The funny thing is Kiffin wanted to fire Rob Ryan( the D-Coordinator) but Davis refused to let him fire Ryan.
I honestly believe Ryan had his defense tank in the 4th quarter the last two games just so he could get Kiffin fired.

Goodell needs to get involved. They are a disgrace to the league.

Re: Raiders finally fire Kiffin

He was fired "for cause" which is Al's attempt at firing him without paying him. I would LOVE to see the "cause".

Hmmmmmmm, wonder if there will be some litigation on this one. Anyone know the terms of Kiffin's deal?

Re: Raiders finally fire Kiffin

Al Davis is batshit crazy. My wife, who knows nothing about football, just walked in and asked, "Who's the crazy old man?"

Good. I truly hope Kiffin gets his money. He's a good man and a solid coach who got handed the keys to the worst team on earth.

Friggin Al Davis. What a POS. Fires him by telephone, has security escort him from the building, then says he won't pay him. He belongs in an old folks home getting spoon fed. The fact that he's still pulling the trigger on football decisions is flat out pathetic. No question the Commish needs to step in. This is not only a disgrace to football, but to sports in general.

Re: Raiders finally fire Kiffin

What a meltdown over there. Did you guys see the video of our old friend Tim "Zorn is the worst hire ever" Kawakami almost getting beaten up at a press conference by a Raiders goon/official? Truly amazing stuff. What's better is that, according to Kawakami, this isn't even the most bizarre thing that's happened over there. He relates this little exchange, which followed his questioning of the Kiffin hire: Al didn't like that (he asked about Kiffin) and said: 'I'll bet you don't even know who Deng Xiaoping was.' I was like, what? What does that have to do with anything? Al pressed it. 'Who is Deng Xiaoping?' So I thought for a minute, and said, 'Well, if I'm not mistaken, wasn't he the General Secretary of the Chinese government during the Tiananmen Square massacre?' And Al repiles, 'But what can you tell me about him other than that? See? You don't even know anything about your own culture.' I said, 'Al, I'm Japanese-American, not Chinese.' And Al said, 'Ohh, geez. I bet you're going to kill me on that now.' It all happened in front of about 20 reporters, so I didn't have to.

I would be more outraged about the state of the Raiders if I wasn't having so much fun watching that ship sink.

But the saddest thing in this, I think, is that the football team is out there fighting against quality competition, and their reward is having to put up with Count Dracula and his crony knights of evil.

Great post. Excellent case in point of what a circus that organization has become.

On a side- Kawakami, eat crow about the Zorn hating.

Re: Raiders finally fire Kiffin

I don't know if I heard this right. And I have to believe I didn't. But apparently Al Davis didn't let Kiffin attend the defensive meetings? What the....?!!

Al Davis messed up. He passed on Zorn, as did a lot of other people. He can't have him now, and he knows it. Big Al can have Marty!
