Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

Raiders file grievance against Russell - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

This should be interesting.

I can't understand this quote though by one of Russell's agents

“The money in question was fully guaranteed. That is why JaMarcus was forced to hold out and miss all of training camp as a rookie,” Metz said. “The Raiders know that and this is our only comment.”

He was forced to hold out because the money was guaranteed?

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

I think he was saying he held out until the Raiders guaranteed the funds.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

He wasn't forced to hold out shit. He held out cuz he knew he wanted max money cuz he sucked and he figured he'd rob ol' Al' before he returned to his true passion, eating as much as he wanted.

But no seriously I'm not sure if the Raiders will get their money back. I mean they definitely deserve it back but because of the nature of contracts its really hard to get it back without proving he really messed up. Like Russell would have to do something seriously wrong like on Vick's level to have to give up that money. Being a massive bust (in more ways than one) probably isn't one of those things.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

They prolly could pay Jason's salary alone just on what that clown Russell received the last year.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

This why when the new CBA comes out there will be a Rookie salary cap, & a minimum salary for players with 5yrs or more.

Love that walrus!

At least I think it's a walrus?

Russell doesn't really deserve all that money, but it's better that he gets it than that old bastard keeping it.

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

they deserve that money back (according to the way he played, not legally).

Re: Raiders Want Their Money Back from Russell

Al is an old senile fck. Didn't work to well with Kiffin, and it won't work to well against Bustsell. Buyer beware!

The end.
