“We have filed a grievance against JaMarcus Russell and that’s all we’re going to say at this time,” Raiders attorney Jeff Birren said.

The grievance is based on the contention by the Raiders that the contract was changed at one point during Russell’s three-year stint with the organization and that he’s not allowed to keep all of the money he had collected prior to his May 7 release. Russell, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft, was guaranteed $32 million as part of a six-year contract reportedly worth $68 million.

That "He's a great player, get over it" is going to haunt Davis for a long time. I think he's pissed Russell made him look the fool and is trying to take it out on Russell. Al Davis, you did this to yourself.

If Russell can ever become a decent player you can be sure that he'll be pining for the Raiders for the rest of his career. Shanahan never did either.

Given what he looked like in that 30 for 30 documentary, that might be wishful thinking...

Thank you... we appreciate your support here in RaiderLand.

Seriously, even Bronco fans can understand that this is just the first salvo in a planned legal battle to institute a rookie salary cap. It's Al Davis changing the game of football once again - this time all the other teams will support him.
