Could Oakland Raiders Coach Tom Cable be Arrested for Assault and Face suspension by NFL … Would Anyone Notice?
The Oakland Raiders face the possibility of not having head coach Tom Cable. It is being widely speculated that Cable will be arrested soon in relation to an alleged assault on an assistant coach. Tom Cable could face criminal charges and a possible suspension from the NFL for violation of the personal conduct policy.
Although Napa Valley (Calif.) police have declined to comment on the investigation, NFL.com quoted the attorney for Raiders assistant coach Randy Hanson as saying that Hanson told police he had been assaulted by Cable on Aug. 5 while the Raiders were in training camp. Hanson was treated for a broken jaw and his attorney, San Francisco-based John McGuinn, said three other coaches, including Marshall, witnessed the attack.
Hell, let the Silver & Black Raiderette Cheerleader attack coach the team. Could they do any worse and a great marketing ploy
I guess the first question is, would anyone notice if Cable was gone? The Oakland Raiders have been so bad as a football team that one would surmise that of they let the Raider mascot coach the team, nobody might notice. Second, the manner in which the team has played and the way in which the Raider organization has run football operations of late might be deemed criminal as well. Can they all be arrested as well?
Fresh off a Sunday dismantling by the Houston Texans 29–6, maybe an arrest would be a welcome change? One thing is for certain, Cable’s punch of Raider’s assistant might be the only hit that the Raiders have done all year. Maybe for the past couple of years. It’s become pretty pathetic when the best hit the Raiders can boat of is when their own coach punches an assistant.
How could such a storied franchise like the “Just Win Baby” Raiders have fallen so far?
