TOPICS:Segment #1: "Condolences to Dennis Allen and family"
Dennis Allen was informed on Monday that his 66 year old father and ex-NFL player had suffered cardiac arrest and was in intensive care. Coach Gruden flew to his bedside, but his father did not regain consciousness. He was taken off of life support yesterday. Raider Nation is saddened, and we send out heartfelt condolences.Segment #2: "W.W.A.D.D."
What would Al Davis do? If Al Davis was still running the Raiders in 2012, what would he be doing right about now, and at the end of the season? We hear thoughts from Greg Papa, Bill Romanowski and Rod Woodson via "The Football Hour" segment on 95.7 "The Game" radio.Segment #3: "Raiders NFL Draft 2013"
What will the Raiders do in the 2013 NFL Draft? Who will they pick in the first round? Will they keep that pick or trade out for multiple extra picks? Raider Greg gives his thoughts and we hear from 95.7 "The Game" draft correspondent Russ Lande, who has done one of the first mock drafts.Segment #4: "Have the Raiders spoken to Jon Gruden about returning or not?"
A rumor began yesterday with Hub Arkush of Pro Football Weekly, saying that they got reliable information that the Raiders have spoken with Jon Gruden regarding a position with the team. Initially Raider Greg started doing this segment with the idea that this was just a rumor and probably had no substance. Just after finishing the podcast, more information came out via radio 95.7 "The Game" supporting this story. The Raiders then sent a message out to the media, which was read on 95.7, saying that these rumors were false. Raiders' media relations head Zak Gilbert added that he felt it was in poor taste by the media to be spreading such rumors at a time like this, when Dennis Allen had just lost his father. The staff at 95.7 "The Game" then had Hub Arkush on via telephone to tell his own story. We have included audio of all of this in this segment of the podcast. It will be interesting to see what comes of all this.Segment #5: "Our Toll-Free Boneline Voicemail Segment"
