The owner sabotaging himself? Not sure that's even possible. Unless they are saying they are sabotaging the situation to make Carol Davis do something she is opposed to right now (LA?). I simply don't have that kind of inside information to know. But that is the only thing I can think of and this person would have to be in real close to know. Other then that we have yet to see what they can do and won't know for years. To me if they fail it would be because they weren't good enough, fair and square.
We could get a witch doctor to resurrect Al and get Hue to leave his janitors job at Bengal head quarters, or ..... maybe not.
That time has gone, if Reggie does fail we wont going back to Al and Hue, those are two guy that will never lead the Raiders again.
So having that debate gets really old, i wouldn't waste my time.
I am curious on the reasons behind the whole "sabotaging" argument. Why would McKenzie and Allen want to completely ruin their careers? Who would this benefit in any way?
This thread has went about 48 posts too long simple matter is Reggie has done what he needed to do to field a team and try to make this team successful in the future. The pain is not over yet we will face some tough choices next year until we get thinks under control with the cap. Making a decision on whether Reggie has or has not hurt the team is totally premature. All signs point to we are starting to head in the right direction. Who cares what anyone says at this point because that is NO RESULTS to base a decision on. Thank goodness TC is open in 25 days.

"Al Davis thought all owners were dilettantes with a new toy. He said to me many times through the years that owners are often the problem with their franchises, that too many of them think they can run things when they cannot, and the teams that succeed are the ones where the owner hires the best people he can and turns the game over to them."
Building properly gets you a team that can win year in and year out.....Mortgaging the future gives you a small window..
I would not want a SB win if it has to be followed by 5 losing seasons or more.......I want to enjoy watching a competitive team every year and thats what Reggie is doing.....
