Hate them now? Yes. Hated them then? Hard to believe.

No one would seriously jeopardize their career by intentionally sabatoging the team, just before the SB! Again, hard to believe.

If the players believed Callahan sabotaged the team, wouldn't Al Davis believe it too? Because if he did believe it, we know he would have immediately fired him.

Which leads me to a more plausible explanation: I heard Warren Sapp say on a NFL Channel show a couple of years ago his explaination for some of the problems the raiders have. He said it was common for the defensive coaches to have a game plan in effect and they would practice it all week, then on Friday, Al Davis would look at the game plan and force the coaches to completely change it to more his liking.

He said that happened every week. It may also explain why Fox walked out on the raiders many years ago. Al Davis was an egomaniacal meddler. If anyone was capable of sabotaging the team, it was him. That, I would believe.
This is exactly what I was thinking when I read that. It wasn't Callahan, it was Davis. We all knew how nuts he had become and hell, watching his draft picks at times was priceless. Jano in the 1st? Anyway, it wasn't because Callahan hated the Raiders, Tim you need to wake up to the fact EVERYBODY hates the Raiders. Except stupid people.

Tim Brown is a chump. And Jerry Rice, too, for backing that stupidity up.

It still amazes me that many former players for the evil empire still give Al Davis a pass when it comes to criticism. Well apparently, he treated & paid them well, Marcus Allen excepted. But coaches, he treated like crap.

The truth is that team steadedly went into the toilet from about the late 80's on, and what got flushed down, left the stench of Davis.

Tim Brown backtracking....

Quote:
Former Raiders star Tim Brown tried to backtrack from the word "sabotage" on Wednesday in a radio interview with "The Dan Patrick Show."

Brown and Jerry Rice both said recently that they believe then-Raiders coach Bill Callahan undermined the team in the Super Bowl in 2003 because of his friendship with Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden by altering the game plan two days before Oakland's 48-21 loss.

"I have never said that he sabotaged the game," Brown said Wednesday. "All I was saying after the game was, you know, the question was asked about this situation, but no one ever said -- and I said on the radio show Saturday night -- that's something that could never be proven.

"We can't go inside the mind of Bill Callahan. ... All I'm saying is, the question was asked. But of course the media hears 'sabotage' and 'Bill Callahan' and 'throwing the football game,' now they're saying 'throwing the football game,' and that terminology was never used."

I thought it was common knowledge the Faiders never even changed their plays, signals, and audibles from when Gruden was there which led to that ass whipping in the Super Bowl.
Yep. And Callahan was so pissed off by that that the next year he changed the terminology, route trees, just about everything that Gruden installed. Became a real dick. Soon he lost the vets, and the rest of the team. And that led to the "dumbest team in America" comment.

Helps my mood seeing former Raiders embarrass themselves.

i know the true story. Heard the whole sorted detail from a friends neighbor who's kid works for a janitorial supply store who has an account for one of the hotels that was near the stadium.

Chucky paid 'star light' the big busted escort to whisper with a wink in Callahan's ear that Chucky knew his entire game plan and was ready for his running game. Now this freaked Callahan out, but he would have likely stayed the course anyway. But... Al Doofus who was secretly filming the whole thing for his kink library and had the audio allllll the way up. He already thought that the plan was to throw it 80 times. Image his surprise that not only was Callahan not going to be throwing it on every down... but Chucky was boasting to everyone that he was not only expecting the run but ready for it. The next day Callahan found one sheet of paper taped to his belly that read 'game plan' with three plays... all go routes.

There's more... but I probably shouldn't share anymore of this top secret info.
