    Porter suspended for 4 games.

    Jerry Porter was suspended for 4 game by Art Shell but he hasn't played yet this year so what's the difference.







    Raiders' Porter suspended four gamesESPN.com news services


    Oakland Raiders coach Art Shell has suspended wide receiver Jerry Porter for four games for conduct detrimental to the team.



    Porter

    Porter, when contacted for a response, offered a "no comment."

    The suspension, which will likely be appealed by the union, would cost Porter slightly over $235,000 in salary. Sources said Porter was informed of the decision on Friday.

    Porter has been in Shell's doghouse all year, extending back to the team's offseason workouts. Earlier in the season, Porter was seen laughing and pumping his fist on the sidelines when Raiders teammate Aaron Brooks was sacked for the seventh time in the Raiders' 27-0 loss to San Diego on Sept. 11 on Monday Night Football.

    But Porter told ESPN that he wasn't paying attention to the game at the time, and that his reaction was to fans who were talking to him on the sidelines, not to Brooks being sacked.

    The Raiders have given Porter and his agent, Joel Segal, permission to seek a trade.


    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Associated Press

    OAKLAND , (CA)--Oakland Raiders football practice was delayed nearly two
    hours today after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery
    substance on the practice field. Head coach Art Shell immediately suspended
    practice and called the police and federal investigators. After a complete
    analysis, FBI forensic experts determined that the white substance unknown
    to Raider players was the GOAL LINE. Practice resumed after special agents decided
    the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again.

    I've always wanted to know how a team suspending a player is going to teach the rich baby a lesson.

    The only difference is that his suspension is W/O pay

    did he do anything recently, or is Shell just pissed at everyone and is looking to save a little payroll?

    Thanks Lotza!

    And things only get worse for the Oakland Raiders.
    In the P.J.'s, my blend tape plays, bullets are strays
    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black

    The Players Union won't let that stand...so it most likely won't stick!

    They just need to trade him already...and take what they can get!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
