Herrera is only feeding us the BS Al tells him to feed. If you're going to hate someone hate the old man in the jumpsuit.
The Raiders’ John Herrera vs. me in front of the cameras today: Well, THAT was fun | Talking Points
Interesting that Tim Kawakami appears to have felt the same way about Herrera after the infamous confrontation.
I feel bad for Raiders employees. I really do. I understand the unique pressures and paranoia involved when you work for Al Davis. I talk to enough people who used to work for him to know.
I have a feeling at some point John Herrera and I will sit back and laugh about this. Maybe not for a while, but we probably will. I think he’s normally a very nice man.
Thats a fair point about him scheduling for another day, but you also don't know if Russell could of set this up beforehand with Cable. Everybody assumes Cable gave him permission the day of, for all we know this could of been set up months beforehand.
It just doesn't seem like a huge deal to me. He only missed the end of season meeting and the end of season physical. For all we know Russell could of went to Vegas to see a specialist with a Raider team doctor for some sort of problem. That being said, I expect Russell there for EVERY offseason activity, OTA, lifting session ect.
The crazy, old coot thinks that fans will buy tickets and turn up again as soon as they hear him spout all his old crap about "Commitment to Excellence" and "The Greatness of the Raiders is in its Future".
I wonder what the reasons in his deluded mind for the stadium having been half empty are?
We all know that if he's decided to fire Cable he'll mention 3 things:
(1) The offense wasn't scoring enough,
(2) The coaching staff didn't develop the talent of the roster (ie Russell, but not mentioned by name),
(3) The placement of an inferior product on the field and inability to win successive games meant fans didn't want to watch.
You don't miss the end of season meeting if you've been paid $40 million so far and the end result is 20 turnovers, 100 yards passing per game and a beer gut bigger than Rob Ryan's. Have some ****ing self respect. If you believe there was a Raider official with him you're on some good **** and I'd like a word with your dealer. I'm going to need it to get through another season of this crap.
You are right to a point, but again anyone but Russell.
For all you nerds out there:
