It was recently revealed that Raiders head coach, Chuck Liddell, I mean Tom Cable was the coach involved in the coach vs coach altercation.  This may be bad news for any other regular team, but I think this is great news for the Raider Nation.  The Mystique of being a Raider has vanished lately. Even in the early decade we weren't what the Raiders were known to be.

Tom Cable recently had Jack Tatum speak to the team, and Tatum told the team that everytime someone came to Oakland, they knew they were going to get hit. Hitting and beating other teams up isn't something you pick up. Its an attitude, and that is what I feel is coming back to the Raiders.

Jack Tatum, Howie Long and Ronnie Lott, those guys come to mind when you think of silver and black. Its time to get back to that old school style of punching people in the mouth. What Tom Cable did not only get my blood going, but it gets me ready for the Tom Cable Era. 

I have a feeling when teams come to Oakland, people are going to get hit. That is what the Raiders have needed and have been missing. If we are going to get penalties, lets not make them false starts or holding. Lets make them count, its time to go back to Raider football. There is no one better to get us there that the man with the mean right hook, Tom Cable.
