Kiffykins Spurs Threatening Letter From Raiders

Sense: Al Davis makes none. This is no longer up for debate; as the Raiders continue to redefine the word “backslide,” Davis has made increasingly peculiar personnel decisions, including jettisoning coaches at will and releasing an $8 million corneback… eight games into his career with the team. But it’s his decision to not pay the remainder of Lane Kiffin’s contract that’s finally bringing the Raiders’ institutional insanity into the light.

Lane Kiffin ugh
(”Coaching here was a very bad idea.”)

Kiffin, who’s a total loon in his own right, is understandably unimpressed with Oakland’s refusal to pay him and has filed a lawsuit to claim the last two months of salary from a 3-year contract he signed in 2007. Not only is Oakland fighting it–they’re holding a deposition on Monday in San Francisco–but Jeff Birren, a lawyer from the team actually sent a threatening letter to the University of Tennessee, claiming that Kiffin, among other things, may have been “actively supplying information about the team to opponents.” Honest to God, that’s what it says.

Oh, and there’s so much more. Read more…
