Good for Al Davis. He took a snot nosed, backstabbing little punk and bent him over his knee.
Lane Kiffin is not some tragic Shakespearean hero knifed by Aaron the Moor. He's someone who took every opportunity he could to leak info to the media that made Davis and the organization look bad.
If you think Davis is incompetent and the Raiders dysfunctional, well, that's your right. However, you know the story when you go to Oakland. The old man is little wacky, he picks the players, he meddles. It's his team. He can do this. You just shut up and coach.
I'm not shedding any tears for Kiffin. He knew what he was getting into. Just do your job, pretty boy. Or leave.
Kiffin is shifty and sneaky and Davis looked like a skilled prosecutor laying out that exact case. It was beautiful to watch.
It was a stone, cold beat down of epic proportions.
Maybe Davis isn't the kooky old goat we all thought he was after all.
He looked lucid as hell to me.
