    Stole money? Last I checked he showed up to practice, meetings and games. That’s why eh gets paid for. Was he rude and all that jazz? Yes, but so what? If you’re rude at your job, they don’t tell you you are stealing from them. you might get fired, but you will not be accused of stealing. We may be bitter, but we should be bitter at those who selected him and decided to give him that contract. we’re being kinda harsh on someone that obviously doesn’t have the emotional stability to deal with all this. We’re Raider fans, but where’s the human in a lot of you?

    We should be bitter at the guys that selected him, and payed, ya that makes sense. The human in me says this guy didn’t give a rats ass about football and never should have went pro, if like he says he heart wasn’t in it. When fans say he stole money, I think their reasoning is the guy never cared, he didn’t play hard, he was disrespectful and a troublemaker, he soaked the Raiders for millions, and provided nothing in return and anyone that defends this douchebag has some seriously misplaced loyalty. I’m loyal to the Raiders, the team I’ve loved for 35 years and when they draft a player and he doesn’t have the same love for the team that I have that’s one thing, but McClain is nothing short of a loser, who hoodwinked the Raiders.
