Lane Kiffin Fired? Al Davis Says Not So Fast, I'm Enjoying This
Somehow, Art Shell and his dinosaur ways AND staff selections are installed to lead the team back to greatness. Or if we are to believe Al Davis, Art was supposed to “bring back the nasty.”
The question is: How did this happen?
Things were in disarray prior to Art, but the cascade was all Al’s doing. You would have to be completely out of touch with reality to think the moves just mentioned would restore the Raiders to so much as respectability, never mind greatness.
This partially answers my own question—how could it happen? The other part is simple: No one else would take the job. That is, no one with a clue would take the job. Al’s strange ways are not unknown to those qualified to be a head coach in the NFL.
Of course, any rational NFL team owner could find suitable head-coaching candidates. There are plenty of coaches out there at both pro and college level who would be more than capable of doing the job.
So Al goes after young candidates like Steve Sarkisian, offensive coordinator at USC. Not that Sark would have been a bad choice, but look at his experience. What experience? There you go.
Does Al want his head coach to succeed? Of course he does, but you can bet when things don’t go right, you better fix it now or your career suffers. And you have to do it with no authority, which is the Raider way.
Enter Lane Kiffin.
Alright, that's enough laughing you! This is serious business we got going on here.
Now that Kiff has laughingly painted himself as a clown who has no clue, any time he speaks it is redundant and stupid. Al won’t fire him just yet because that would fall in step with what people are waiting for. Especially so because that is what the media expects him to do. (Even his death is taking eons because he refuses to cooperate with the laws of nature.)
Everything has to be on Al’s terms, or he won’t cooperate in the least. If it means sacrificing a few games or a playoff opportunity or the season, Al’s pompous pride wins the day.
So what does this tell you? It speaks the truth in that Al does not care a wink about you, the fans, or the money you invest in being a fan. It means the concept of “commitment to excellence” is window dressing for “screw you, but thanks for your support.”
While we’re all waiting for the axe to fall on Kiff, maybe re-thinking any misplaced support of an arrogant little boy pretending to be an NFL head coach would help clarify reality.
