Actually, my sources say he was more interested in fishing than he was in football, even before he was drafted.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

I would almost be willing to bet that, that money is gone..... long gone. I would like to know how much he has left if any.

If your sources knew that then the Raiders definitely did yet they signed him anyway so they deserved what they got.

I think the Raider's fans should get the money back; not the team. I mean, think about it, those poor season ticket holders! Raider's fans are some of the most die hard fans out there! They're so die hard that they even took over an entire section in the stadium and renamed it "The Black Hole". Those guys trusted their team to make the right pick at quarterback. They got excited about getting a quarterback at number one overall. They all flock to the stadium to see how good he's going to be. But, they paid for a bunch of crap! They paid to watch someone that was worse then Ryan Leaf! Thats bad! And You know how many more beers they were forced to drink at games just so they could get through it? Probably 10 more....................at least! And at $9 a beer thats alot of money!

Heck, I don't know even know what the Raider's organization is really complaining about. I'm sure their revenue sales increased greatly during the games they had Russell starting! I bet it even doubled for the last three years. And you know what, they owe their loyal fan base an apology! Not only for drafting that bumb, but for paying him all that guaranteed money too! Because, when you pay that kind of money you have to keep starting him and starting him and starting him. Those poor guys..........how they ever got through it is beyond me.

And if they really do get paid more money for cutting Russell then they should, at the very least, give that money back to their die hard/ loyal fans. They owe them that.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

JR is a mega bust no doubt, but I hope the Raiders don't get their money back. They were the ones that drafted the guy and agreed to his contract. Tough doo-doo.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

Did anyone see espn's 30 for 30 film "Straight Outta LA" that was directed by Ice Cube? It was really good. An LA councilman said that Al Davis & the Raiders have always let you know that they put their team first, implying that Al Davis is getting what he deserves because he refuses to work w/people, namely the nfl & cities of Oakland & LA.

A sports writer said that Al Davis has played the victim so long that he's become the victim. Essentially saying, if you believe you are a victim you'll become one. After all his legal battles w/the nfl & the cities he's had his team in, he still doesn't have a long-term deal in place for a stadium.

This sounds like Al Davis is again trying to plead injustice, but there's just nothing there. How many teams would like to have $ back from top 10 picks that didn't amount to anything? I just want our draft picks back from when we selected Shuler & Westbrook!

I agree. While JR was a bust, it was a contract and they both agreed to it. Russell was willing to fulfill his end and be their QB (although not a good one). The Raiders need to honor their end of the deal.

I also think the problem with NFL contracts is they are never what they appear to be. If a player isn't performing, the team can cut him and not pay the future years. Then, if a player out performs his contract and holds out for more money, all you hear is how he signed the contract and should honor it.
