Brown I think singed that offer sheet with Denver after the 94 season. Al matched .

I did not hear it but Marcus Allen wore a Chief jersey at his HOF induction if I am not mistaken. Tim and Marcus are pretty good friends. It was just a joke I am pretty sure. I have some friends that hosted Marcus and Terrell Davis at his house and they to a person said Davis was way more cool than Marcus in fact they said Marcus was an ahole.

Marcus was a great RB. I don't care who he slept with. That Al felt himself judge jury and executioner was pitiful. That he had the legal "right" to do it really gives a lot of credence to guys like Barkley who talk about slavery days. Al fvcked up Marcus' career because he "owned" him.
"Allegations without proof?"
Yeah, like this I already stated http://www.raiderfans.net/forum/oakl...ml#post3716313
CJ Online National News: Attorney alleges Marcus Allen-Nicole affair caused O.J. to snap 04/30/98 | CJOnline.com
"Every time I spoke to witnesses close to Simpson, it always came back to Marcus Allen," said Petrocelli, who represented the Goldmans in the wrongful death suit. "I believe that was what made Simpson snap." "Marcus Allen needs to protect himself, his franchise, his life, his family, his reputation, his name, his income-generating ability -- and he will go to the grave lying about this," he said.
Jack Walraven's Simpson Trial Transcripts - AC Cowlings Deposition of April 17
Q: Okay. Yesterday you had answered some questions regarding a conversation you had had with Marcus Allen at Wayne Hughes' estate.
Do you recall that?
Q: And I believe you had said that you told Mr. Allen that you knew about his affair with Nicole. Is that correct?
Should I supply quotes by Faye Resnick too?
Funny how you claim Marcus not playing cost us wins. He was the backup in 1990, we win the division and go to the AFC title game. In 1991, He gives 8 games, and we go to the playoffs with Jay Schroeder & Todd Marinovich(and no Bo), and he fumbles in the playoff game where Nick freaking Bell outperformed him. Hell the first year he left, WE WENT to the playoffs.
The guy had 3 1,000 yard seasons in his career and he's one of the most amazing HOF'ers? Hilarious again. The guy is in because of the politics of the NFL. He is NOWHERE near Walter Payton, who played on crap teams, except for the end of his career, had 10 1,000 yard seasons including his 1977 season. What do you think Walter would have done had he been with the Raiders during our Super Bowl wins? Emmit Smith may be a more apt comparison since he was surrounded by loads of talent. Personally, I would take Barry Sanders over either one of them. Even Harvey Williams had a 1,000 yard season with the Raiders that Marcus couldn't do with the Chiefs.
Guess what there are a lot more GOOD Al examples than bad. Him & Howie were our 2 most overrated raiders, easily.
Ten years later he had 890 yards rushing for 4.3 ypc, 210 yards receiving, 2 fumbles and 5 TDs. Ten years after winning us a superbowl he is still the equal of any RB we have had here since him.
He slept with women he had not married? well, now that is a whole different story!!! Lets not have any of that!
Was he the greatest RB ever? one of the top 5? No. Top 10 I'd say he was.
A lot more good stories about Al than bad? Probably. But what Al did was flat out wrong. Most people do more good in life than bad. A lot of people live great lives, and are remembered for only one mistake. Al tried to fvck up a guy's life because he felt he had a right to do it. Says a lot.
If Al had a problem with Marcus, he should have told him to his face, released him from his contract or traded him, and not paid him any more money.
Marcus Allen # 6 all time NFL TDs 145. Without AL Davis fvcking him around, a real shot at #3, maybe even #2.

Two points after reading all these posts:
1. The fact that this whole thread started over a single comment shows why some athletes hate the press, and why you should never judge any comment unless you PERSONALLY heard the entire conversation.
Brown could have been:
A. Supporting Marcus and the Raider organization and saying that it was good Marcus was referred to as a Raider, and that people think of Marcus as a Raider. (All Positive)
B. Picking at Marcus for his antics as a Chief and for going into the HOF as a Chief. (A complete different emotion.)
BOTTOM LINE: WE DON'T FRIGGING KNOW SO THERE IS NO NEED TO SPECULATE UNLESS WE PERSONALLY HEARD IT ALL AND WE KNOW THE FACTS.
2. The whole thing about Marcus and Al Davis has been discussed in this forum many times. I think Al was taking the "high road" being unwilling to discuss the situation despite the criticism he endured for it. I could speculate whatever Marcus did had an impact on other players or other members of the organization that Davis did not want to embarrass or involve. So he kept it secret. (He told Ice Cube in an interview that he and Marcus knew the scoop, but he wasn't going to discuss it.) But I could be as wrong as the next guy. I loved Allen as a player, but I'm pretty sure he hasn't come clean about the situation. I've NEVER gotten the impression Marcus was willing to tell his side, or be honest about whatever happened. BOTTOM LINE... YOU CAN'T LOGICALLY BLAME AL OR BLAME MARCUS WITHOUT THE FACTS... and none of us have them.
By the way, everyone has a right to their opinion. But when you post something as if it is 100% true, you need to have the facts to back up your position. Hats off to the poster(s) who back up their comments with facts and/or sound reasoning.
And by the way, all of this is just MY opinion.
Marcus' conduct is enough to black list him from being a Raider in my mind.
The whining and demonizing of Al during the strike, the public cheap shots on KTLA in his series of interviews during the strike in 87, the joining in on an optional NFLPA lawsuit that he LOUDLY made an issue of to LA media when he joined it, etc.
Marcus lost his right to be called a Raider and only those who may not be fully informed on his conduct think he got screwed.
Marcus Allen is an ungrateful chump who stabbed Al's back after Al was very good to him.
Tim Brown knows that Allen is no Raider.
Its worth taking a look at Marcus.
NFL Football - Super Bowl XVIII - Washington Redskins vs. Los Angeles Raiders (1984) - YouTube
"Allen rushed 58 times for 466 yards and four touchdowns during the (1983) playoffs. He also added 118 yards and one touchdown on 14 receptions."
Always be one of my best memories of the Raiders.
Al did that again in 85.
Marcus went and tainted that memory for me when he went on his all out assault on any media outlet that would listen.
He did that all on his own.
He lost my respect during the strike in 87.
