From the Observation Deck (Vol. 2)

Tom Cable Sucker Punch – Have you been following this soap opera out in Oakland? According to the National Football Post, head coach Tom Cable of the Raiders sucker punched Randy Hanson, an assistant coach, and broke his jaw. Hanson, who is portrayed as a snitch for Al Davis, was demoted by Cable and he was mouthing off to the defensive coordinator when Cable came up behind him and sucker punched him. Hanson kept quiet about it hoping to retain his position and when Davis refused, he filed a complaint with the cops. Cable could be facing a felony charge and should be suspended at the very least and ought to be fired in my view…stay tuned to this story in the dysfunction junction that is the Oakland Raiders… you can’t make this stuff up! When I compared Cable to a local bouncer at a club in a recent coach rating post, I didn’t know how right I was…..

Fantasy Football – Last night I was watching the game on FOX and Joe Buck started telling us all about the new fantasy stats they would be showing in games this year. Look, I have nothing against fantasy football if that floats your boat, but it’s not for me. I prefer to watch teams play and I root for or against teams based on whether I hate them or not… Play your little fantasy games if you want, I just don’t want to be subjected to seeing all that individual fantasy crap on my screen when I’m watching the games. And just to be clear, if you’ve come to this site for fantasy stuff, you’ve come to the wrong place.

Memphis/John Calipari – Memphis now has to forfeit all their games from two years ago when they made it to the NCAA championship game. Apparently, Derrick Rose had someone sit in for him to take his SAT test, lol….(is that cheating?) Anyway, Memphis is protesting the ruling and John Calipari is supporting their appeal. Of course he is, what else would he say? Is anyone surprised? As far as Calipari goes, where there’s smoke there’s fire, he left UMass after they got caught cheating and had to forfeit games there as well. Seems that he does whatever it takes, then leaves Dodge when the authorities are on to him…Good luck University of Kentucky! The state of Kentucky now has two of the biggest sleazeballs in college hoops with sleazy John and slick Rick.

Lingering Favre thoughts – I know, I know… you, me and everyone else outside of Minnesota, ESPN, and Peter King are sick and tired of hearing about this washed-up diva. But when watching his press conference the other day, he said he was brought in to provide leadership to the Vikings. If a leader deliberately lies only so he can avoid two-a-days and bunking with a teammate in a dorm room for two weeks, then I guess I don’t understand the meaning of the word. Way to lead, Brett! …and another thing, you make 10 million a year, can you buy a new hat? You look like a hillbilly…
