Ok, we all know what's going to happen: Everyone in the world knows that Tom Cable is guilty and facing jail time for assault and obstruction of justice for lying to the police.

Sure, even Roger Goodell knows this. Hanson and his lawyer have been active lately, publicly speaking and telling everyone what happened.  And all Cable has done is lie and deny everything.

You've suspended others with less proof against them.  For example, "Pac-Man" Jones hasn't been convicted of anything, yet you suspended him.  Please don't hold Cable to a double-standard just because he is an authority figure and a head coach.

Just do Raider-nation a favor and suspend him now.  You owe us at least that.  After all, we buy NFL merchandise.

Who knows, maybe the Raiders actually have a capable playcaller on the team.

By not suspending him, you are just postponing the inevitable and making Raider fans suffer even more.  There's a good chance if you don't do it by our Week Nine bye, Al Davis will beat you to it and fire him.
