    Just heard it on 1360 - Chris Mortenson reporting that it's official. Hopefully he gets his money! Good luck Lane :)

    Who do you guys think will get the nod to take over? I've heard rumors that James Lofton went there to take over once Kiffin was let go.

    Here's the link to the ESPN story: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3617977

    Kiffin fired.....Davis a D-Bag

    Well, after letting Kiffin twist in the wind Davis has announced that he's fired, and WITHOUT pay.

    D-Bag X 100.

    Firing him by phone, that is bush league. Davis is lost..... and has been for so many years. Only good for the Bolts though!

    Anyone else notice Lane Kiffin looks a lot like Andy Richter? Didn't he last about a season and a half too?

    What? No pay? The guy puts a year or so into trying to do something with an organization that can't do anything and the owner fires him without some from of severance! That is pretty low, even for Al Davis. I wonder if Kiffin is just going to let this drop, go back to college ball, and maybe in a few years return to BEG for a job in the NFL - like OC. Or is this guy really going to sue Al Davis?

    The old man has lost it. The presser should be entertaining if some reporter pushes the right buttons.

    Are we going to see more of that crazy AL from when he announced Kiffin? I think that is were that pic is from where he is leaning over the table looking psychotic.

    I disagree. Kiffin took a team built by Al and made it almost competitive. I see a future for him as an OC for the Ravens, HC for the Lions, or HC for the Rams.

    I like Kiffin. He did some good things for the Raiturds.

    and the second thought was, how do I get the hell out of this looney bin. Is there a back door behind the curtain?

    That pic of Al is classic. :lol:

    Al just stood up to let a huge Carne Asada Burrito with Guacamole Bubble go.

    Kiffen is the only one who can hear it, and he knows how bad it is going to smell, Al has been letting them go for the whole meeting.

    Kiffin didn't quit. I don't like the raiders, but you gotta have some respect for a guy that stared down Davis and said "I'm not quitting because you're a stupid old man."
