Snake has been in worse situations. I've got faith he'll still come out on top.
That sucks, hope everything works out for him.
I noticed some folks saying he needs to be the next Raider in the HOF. I respectfully disagree. Cliff Branch needs to be the next Raider in the HOF.
Who was the only player who could still make game winning plays against the Steeler's steroid defenses?
If you said Branch, you'd be correct. He was still a better athlete than the steroid guys.
AL's legacy has to include turning Branch into a great WR.
Taking out the comparisons, he was an all-time great deep threat. I don't get it. I haven't heard a legit reason why Branch isn't in. Did he take a dump in the voters' coffee or something?
Yes is it pre old man aluminum walker, when Al could still throw a spiral.AL's legacy has to include turning Branch into a great WR.
Branch would not have made it on any other team.
Comments on threads like these are why I say to all players. GET YOUR MONEY, HOLD OUT, do whatever you have to do to GET PAID!! All the fans who don't have lingering chronic pain, dementia, etc are the ones saying "get rid of him start the rookie", "trade the guy, he's not bringing it like he used to" etc.
I don't care if it's Woodson, Aso, etc on the RAIDERS. LEAVE IF YOU HAVE TO AND GET PAID!! Take your services to the HIGHEST BIDDER and get compensated for the pain, and effort you put out there. Loyalty isn't a two way street at all. I'd be as deaf as Hellen Keller during contract time from the talk of "do it for your city/team" WHATEVER. I'll do it for security and family. Team and city takes a backseat to that.
Wish Stabler the best!!
His autograph must still carry some weight. Time for him to bust out all his Stabler rookie cards and sell them with this autograph!
Much respect to Stabler, but remember you reap what you sow... he had a pretty decent gig with Alabama and his drinking did him in... hope he can get clear of the IRS, but accountability has to come into play at some point in a person's life...

"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."
Obviously, nobody has all the FACTS on HOW he ended up in debt to the IRS like that.
The FACT of the matter is when it comes to the IRS is that anybody with a lick of common sense KNOWS they are thieves.
They keep your money all year long and don't pay you one dime in interest then, IF... IF... you qualify according to THEIR guidelines you get a portion of the money refunded back to you they OVER taxed you on!!! What a scam!!!
A). If they withheld 5000.00 a year from you every year over 45 years without giving you one red cent in interest (which they do) then give you back 2000.00 that CAN add up to a MOUNTAIN of money lost.
B). It's purposely set up this way because if they did it vice versa and tried to collect the taxes you owed at the end of the year without withholding anything there would be an uprising against the government. Not to mention, there wouldn't be enough jail space in the world to put everybody. BIG government is BIG business!!!
C). If one does not know the loopholes in the incredibly complicated tax code, have the resources to help guide them, get poor advice (Ken?) or plain doesn't care (Ken?) you are at a major disadvantage.
SEEMS to me what needs to happen is the old system should be chucked out the window and a graduated flat tax put in it's place.
Pretty easy to guess. Got paid without withholding, didn't put some aside for the tax man. This can happen to anyone who strikes out on their own and gets paid cash or check. Then start the interest and penalties, which can be reduced substantially if you talk to the "thieves" early on. I am sure Ken knew the rules, but didn't follow them. Not surprising for a guy who could always dig one out in crunch time, but threw way more int's than TD's in his career.Obviously, nobody has all the FACTS on HOW he ended up in debt to the IRS like that.
