    The civil suit filed against the Raiders and Tom Cable by employee Randy Hanson threatens to be a problem for the team in a few ways.

    Cable will likely have to testify on the record in what could be an embarrassing ordeal.

    The lawsuit will also shine on a light on Hanson's current odd situation as a Raiders employee. Some highlights from Hanson's suit, as picked out by Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune.

    * Hanson works for the team, but has to enter the building through the front entrance. Team employees and players go through the back.

    * Hanson is not allowed to enter the "football" area of the building, just the administrative side. He was not allowed to attend home games.

    * Initially, these conditions were only supposed to last four weeks. On January 28, Hanson was told by Al Davis the segregation would remain in place as long as Hanson remained with the team. (That makes us wonder if he held off filing the suit until he learned his estrangement was permanent.)

    * Here's our favorite: "If [Hanson] wished to eat the lunch provided daily to the Raiders staff, he must ask someone to bring it to him."

    While other teams are focused on winning football games, the Raiders are concerned with who will bring Randy Hanson his lunch.
