Seeking to recoup lost wages he forfeited by being an all-around douchebag, Lane Kiffin was denied by an NFL arbitrator today according to an ESPN report. Let this be a lesson to Lane. If you take Al Davis to court you’d better have an air tight case. Davis spends more time in court than the cast of Law & Order.
When that projector got fired up, Kiffin laughed thinking Davis was making a Bronco of himself. Turns out he was actually building his case right there for the entire world to see as ESPN peeked in live on the event.
Firing Kiffin for “cause” was another strategic move. By using such terminology and giving specific reasons, Davis knew he would be off the hook for owing Kiffin anything more than a 24-hour period to get his things and get out of the East Bay.
Better luck next time, Lane. Maybe you can sue the fans in Knoxville for damages. I’m sure you feel like they still owe you something too.
While this case has been dismissed, the Raiders were unsuccessful in recouping their attorney fees which was part of a counter grievance filed against Kiffin.
Define ugly breakup.
I’ll say this much. Kiffin is lucky he didn’t get the same Romanowski handshake that Randy Hanson received from Tom Cable. Coach Cable is clearly allergic to locker room douche and you can imagine it took all of him to control himself whenever Kiffin entered the room.
