McClain apologizes for 'bad publicity'I know it's a legal matter and the issue is pending, but just apologize for being an immature jackass Rolando.

I don't care what Coach Allen says, McKenzie is looking over FA LBs as we sit here. I have said this before, it's time to cut ties with McClain. He is undisciplined, often out of place, and simply is not a smart football player (at this point of his career at least). I am done with "project" players. Cut this ass and move on.
I have to strongly disagree. You may be done with him, but by no means do I believe the organization should be. I think he needs to have a shot in the new regime with the new coaches and new philosophy. He has raw talent, his play hasn't been horribly bad, and under all the coaching changes hasn't had a real shot at learning a real system. Give the kid a chance to be disciplined and time to grow/learn from it. If he doesn't, then cut ties. People need to get off their moral high horses and stop being so quick to throw others under the bus. I'm not defending his actions at all, I just believe he needs a chance under the new Raiders.
I understand where you're coming from but not for me, he's a shithead. I'm not on a moral high horse either. Just my opinion. What has he done? Pile drive a St. Louis Ram?? I'll be the first to admit I am wrong if he pans out. He's an immature child and for this fan, I don't want him on our team. Not that I have really have a say anyway
I know he hasn't done much, but he hasn't been absolutely piss poor either. I mean realistically, many of our first rounders hadn't/haven't panned out well learning under Davis in his last few years with us. The amount of penalties we've racked up every season speaks volumes as to the lack of discipline these players received over the past few years. So, am I surprised to see the bullshit some of our younger, probably highly misguided youngsters with fat contracts get into? Hell no, I almost expect it. Now that we have leaders in the driver's seat that are willing to put their foot down (McKenzie, Allen) and not play favorites because X player was given a fat check and may be a freak of nature (Davis Sr.), then we see what really happens in the aftermath X player's immature actions. I don't even believe we have the personal to pull off a 3-4, let alone a 4-3 for a whole season, so he must stay until we have a legit replacement and LB corp to keep the opposing RB's at bey. Which we never seem to accomplish.
