Al Davis Working to Build a Case to Fire Cable -- Even if He Already Has One

Tom CableYou would think general ineptitude, compunded by reports that he assaulted an assistant would be enough to dismiss Tom Cable out of hand. Especially for a guy as impulsive as Raiders owner Al Davis.

↵According to Yahoo! Sports columnist Jason Cole (last item), sources indicate that the Raiders are working in concert with the league's official investigation into the alleged incident in which Tom Cable was reported to have broken defensive assistant Randy Hanson's jaw on Aug. 5 at the team's training camp headquarters. This is all so Davis can fire Davis "with cause" so the team won't have to pay the coach beyond this season.

↵As for Cable, one would understand why, even knowing that the franchise is working to rid itself of him, he wouldn't resign. Can't imagine there will be a great demand for his services going forward.
