Raiders Coach Fight: NFL On Top of Tom Cable Alleged Attack

Tom Cable Attack

One Oakland Raiders assistant coach was sent to the hospital amidst reports that head coach Tom Cable had punched defensive assistant coach Randy Hansen in the jaw.   Odds on the Raiders winning UNDER 5 ½ games anybody?

The NFL is now investigating the reports.

 

"Nothing happened," Cable told a large swarm of reporters Tuesday when asked about it following a joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers. "Listen, you want to talk about this football team and the players on this football team, I'll talk all day. Otherwise, I'm not getting into it."

A report filed with the Napa Police Department describes an unnamed 41-year-old Raiders assistant coach being treated at the Queen of the Valley Hospital for a jaw injury, which the victim alleges was caused by an unidentified member of the Raiders coaching staff on Aug. 5.

AOL Fanhouse claimed that the man who allegedly caused the injury was none other than Cable.  This was later backed up by what former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah told ESPN's Chris Mortensen on Monday night.

The incident apparently occurred after Cable reacted when Hanson spoke profanely to defensive coordinator John Marshall. Cable rebuked Hanson, then pushed his chair, which caused the injury.

"I respect that," Cable said when told it was only fair to give him chance to respond. "You have to respect I want to talk about my team."

And his team really didn't want to talk about him, either. Cable hasn't told the players anything.

"That's for you guys to talk about. I have no idea what happened, if anything happened. I could really care less," left guard Robert Gallery said. "I worry about winning games. Until you know or the truth comes out, rumors can get spread real fast. You could start one now and it could change tomorrow."

It looks like another dismal season for the Raiders.  You can bet on them (if you dare) at SBG Global.  Take the UNDER 5 ½ regular season wins and thank us later.
