Any football viewer knows that a disproportionate amount of serious head and spinal injuries occur on kickoffs when large, aggressive and armored athletes charge toward each other from great distances.
I welcome the start of a new season with excitement. But Angelenos got to watch the lowly Raiders pummeled by the mediocre Tennessee Titans (2009 record: 8-8). Oh boy!
Doom. Impending doom. Deep dark impending Democratic Party doom. Losing one if not both houses of Congress- deep dark impending Democratic Party doom....
See, in life we hold out for a lot of different things. When we think about holding out, we always think it is going to accomplish something.
Tatum's death comes just as the NFL is beginning to begrudgingly address its issues with player safety and his legacy provides an interesting platform from which to look at the future of football.
Old time Oakland Raider Jack Tatum died yesterday of a heart attack at the age of 61. It was Tatum who put the hit on Patriots wide receiver Darryl Stingley in a 1978 game. Stingley was paralyzed.
In any grievance between a player and a team, the key fact I look for is: Has the money been paid? If it has, chances are strong that the money is long since spent.
We know that Russell is a talent and that if the Raiders did not select him first in the 2007 Draft he would have been scooped up soon thereafter. The issue with Russell has been work ethic, discipline and willingness to get better.

This Sunday, the Oakland Raiders will honor Native American Heritage Month. But I question their choice of opponent--the Kansas City Chiefs. Is it possible to be any more insensitive?
The perfect season. 6 and 0. So maybe that's a bit of a stretch. But as I look at the Broncos schedule, I think, why not? Other than needing to beat the Ravens, Colts and Eagles on the road.
Oakland's Tom Cable will not face charges for allegedly breaking the jaw of one of his assistants. When I saw the headline "No Charge for Cable," I knew the story wasn't about Cablevision.
You can put to rest the idea that A-Rod's an October bust. He only hit the biggest home run he's ever hit in pinstripes to tie the game in the 11th inning.
