I'm surprised the Raiders haven't debunked this already, to be honest.
There's no way they're unaware, right? No way an article on PFT gets 'missed' or 'overlooked' by a professional organization.
The head coach's father just died, yet they're allowing these rumors to float? It's not a good way to run things, IMO.
So, as originally stated... I'm surprised the organization has not yet debunked this myth.
Your right because of the death of Allen's father the raiders should address this it's either the lack of experience Mark has in dealing with a issue such as this or the fact that this rumor has some truth to it and the raiders don't want to pile on to a already bad time for coach Allen and his family only time will tell.
