Ditto for Zorn.
How do you know those guys werent trying their best? I suspect they were even though they didnt get the results wanted.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

What I love most is the owner believes in contracts when it benifits him but chooses to over look it when it doesn't.

I can see Davis now "hey the contract says you'd work for 6 yrs at 1 mill a yr, I don't care if you think you deserve more."

or "hey we paid you a ton of money and got little reward, I don't care what the contract says you didn't earn it."

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

Here's hoping that a scenario directly parallel to this one in Oakland does not play itself out in Washington with Albert Haynesworth as the central figure...

Some of the elements are in place:

1. Lots of money paid up front as guaranteed $$$ to player.

2. Player seems not overly dedicated to physical fitness/weight control.

3. First year results less than stellar...

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

Al Davis done lost his f'ing mind a long time. Nothing he Raiders do surprises me...if he said I'm moving the Raiders to the Philippines tomorrow I wouldn't be shocked.

Everyone knew he was over paying for mediocre talent and I remember a story about one of the coach discouraging him from drafting Russell. Pay the man, and cut you losses Al, lord knows you ain't never gonna win in court.

Not gonna start a rehash of a billion AH threads, but #3 seems ridiculous. Saying Jamarcus Russell's results were "less than stellar" is way overselling what he "accomplished". And with AH, we got exactly what realistic people expected, a few injury games. but also a force in the middle when he played. If someone expected more, than they were looking at a crazy contract and putting crazy expectations on, not what this guy could legitimately bring to the team and set expectations appropriately.

I was thinking the same thing. WTF is their deal? They don't want to pay coaches and now this?? They just seem bitter about paying the guy cause he flat out sucks.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

I personally don't see why the team should get it since they signed a contract, Big Al should have to abide by the contract also. However it would be sweet for the courts or NFL to force Russell to give back the money then force Big Al to give the money to all the fans who purchased Sun. ticket because for several yrs now he's been ripping them off giving them a lousy team on the field. The fans should be reimbursed.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

the only thing I feel they should change about this structure is the rookie salaries...other than that perhaps some people just need to evaluate talent and work ethic better. agree?

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

This guy is an idiot. But yes, purple drank is a problem which is only popularized by rappers.

Lil Wayne, for example, doesnt drink alcohol because he thinks its bad but regularly drinks codeine based drinks. Stuff is so strong you have to have several cups in ones when drinking. It burns through them.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

I have to admit to having always wanted to try sizzurp. I guess I'm just running with the wrong crowd for that though.

Classic.
