Tom Cable allegedly punches defensive assistant

In all seriousness, I don't see how the players are going to respect his authority; you can't just go around breaking assistant's jaws and hope to maintain the kind of credibility a Head Coach needs to have any success in this league.

The NFL better suspend him because they suspend players for similar stuff. Coaches need to be held to a higher standard. I seriously doubt Al Davis will do anything but the NFL better.

lol how do you suspend a coach... lol this could be funny...
Funniest thing I've read in awhile: "Cable boombaye" @Jerrymcd Raiders players chant in warmups, reenacting chant in Zaire from Ali-Foreman


matt's twat,
they're saying on Sportscenter that cable fractured this dude's jaw. and steve levy goes "only the raiders"

god it would suck to be the laughing stock of personality, image, and of the entire NFL
Cable must've caught him f**kin' his wife or molesting his kids because I don't think conflicting coaching philosophies or football schemes would compel any man to straight sucker punch anyone, especially someone in their own staff!
haha apparently cable denies it according to espn
It just so happens that Mondays he gives his afternoon press conference...

Cable was asked 3 times about the incident, and 3 times he said no comment

ESPN backs Cable's denial of sucker punch

The day began with ESPN bizarrely overstating a report from one of the NFL's most popular reporters.

It ended with ESPN whizzing all over a report from one of its most respected.

At the top of the SportsCenter that following Monday night's Panthers-Giants preseason game, Mark Schelerth passed along, in somewhat passionate fashion, a vehement denial from Raiders coach Tom Cable regarding the report that he sucker punched defensive assistant Randy Hanson.

Newcomer (and PFT friend -- at least until "they" get to him) Adam Schefter then gave the denial some external credibility, explaining that his own information confirms that nothing happened -- other than a "heated discussion."

The import? ESPN is saying that Nancy Gay of FanHouse, a longtime reporter of the San Francisco Chronicle and one of only two women who cast ballots for admission to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is flat out wrong.

On Monday morning, NationalFootballPost.com reported that something happened to Hanson, which sent him to the hospital and resulted in a police report being filed, with Hanson reluctant to identify who had hit him. Then, Gay made the surprising disclosure, citing multiple sources, that Cable had been the assailant.

So it's odd that ESPN would both disregard and flat-out contradict these reports. In fact, Schefter suggested that the team might take action against Hanson, for reasons that at this point are simply not clear to us.

The one sure thing? Given Schefter's reporting on this specific issue, it's unlikely that Raiders owner Al Davis will be dusting off the "false rumor monger" moniker.

Bizarre
So we don't even know if it really happened now?
