    Raiders want Gannon gone

    According to David White of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Raiders want CBS analyst Rich Gannon (and former Oakland Super Bowl quarterback) banned from their Alameda training facility.

    Club officials want Gannon blackballed because he's been critical of the organization.

    "Rich Gannon is not welcome here," ubiquitous club spokesman John Herrera said. "We told CBS we did not want him in our building . . . and that's where it sits."

    Initially, the Raiders even asked for Gannon to be pulled out of the broadcast booth.

    Unsurprisingly, CBS declined.

    "Rich Gannon is an objective and analytical broadcaster and he will be broadcasting the game as assigned," said CBS senior V.P. of communications LeslieAnne Wade.

    As to the Raiders' reasoning, Herrera pointed to Gannon saying the organization "should just blow up the building and start over."

    Herrera is apparently more sensitive than his incredibly confrontational history with at least one reporter suggests.

    "We think in a post 9/11 world, that's not a very proper thing to say," Herrera said. "It's uncalled for. Gannon seems to be a guy who can't get over the fact that he played the worst Super Bowl game in the history of the game and he wants to blame everybody but himself."

    This Herrera guy should be ashamed. Invoking a tradgedy like 9/11 to protect the honor of... a football team? Did he get his media relations degree out of a box of Cap'n' Crunch?

    Ha! Hey Herrera, you sound like a b1tchy high school girl with a grudge. While your at it why don't you put Gannon on the top of you 'Slut List' and tell everyone how cheap his prom dress looks.

    Just make sure Al makes it though unscathed. I will be pissed if anyone harms a hair on his franchise-killing head.

    The lack of professionalism that exists in this organization is amazing. With a head coach that punched one of his staff, a team spokesman who doesn't think before he speaks, and of course Al drafting like that guy in your fantasy league that everyone snickers at, how can things go wrong?

    The old man thinks he can dictate everything. The sad thing is, he just gets pacified as he gets rejected just like the old person who can't be left alone to make decisions anymore.
