    Tom Cable is a great, capable leader of men. I take him (and all NFL head coaches) at their word.

    Maybe the Pats are fitting Seymour with an iron jaw just in case Cable gets mad at him and decides to haul off at him.

    BTW, didn't see the other thread. Mods, you can combine with the other thread.

    Cable & the Raiders are such a joke that BB can't resist doing business with them.

    Re: Tom Cable says that the Pats are holding up the trade and Seymour wants to be Rai

    What issue could there be between the Pats and Seymour?? What is he waiting for?? I mean really...that is totally ridiculous..THERE is nothing the Pats can do at all.... They can't change his contract...or change any of the terms...if they promised him something..THAT can not be the same of a new team...can it?? Pure baloney..if he wanted to be in Oakland..he would have gone..maybe he wishes to say goodbyes to the front Office..

    Tom Cable's word is as good as gold...ask his assistant coach whose jaw he broke and then denied the whole thing.

    Mike Lombardi on the NFLN,just reported that the pata are in compiance with the trade terms and don't know what the h-ll Crable is talking about.

    He also said that Oakland offered a 2 and 5 in 2010,but BB declined for the #1 in 2011

    Seymour doesn't want to be a Raider, he won't show up. Mabe Cable is reffering to the 5 day letter.

    Or

    Seymour Started crying on his knees to Bill to take him back and would do anything not to go to the Raiders.

    Or maybe Cable has come down with "Al Davis" disease and isn't sure what's going on... :rolleyes:

    So Cable claims to have talked to Sey, and there are issues still to be dealt with in Pat land. Hmm.

    Is big Sey due any type of bonus that he has not received, doubt it?

    Maybe he needs his stuff from his locker and he is locked out of the building, nah.

    Re: Tom Cable says that the Pats are holding up the trade and Seymour wants to be Rai

    Quick search turned up this precedent:

    Indy.com | Post: Bills DT McCargo fails Colts physical, trade void | Indianapolis, Indiana

    That article makes it seem like the requirements of passing a physical depend on what is specifically outlined in the trade itself (so not a CBA issue)- which means that it is possible that this requirement wouldn't have been included.

    That said, I'd be willing to bet that it's a standard clause in all trades, as it prevents teams from screwing someone over by unloading players with undisclosed injuries. If that's the case, then the trade is likely contingent on Seymour taking (and passing) a physical.

    It's just a way to cover up the fact that Seymour really does not want to be there. I have to say that I feel for the guy. I wonder why Denver wasn't calling...

    LOL, maybe Seymour is making calls to other teams begging them to make a trade for him with Oakland.

    He will show, he does not have a choice does he.

    Re: Tom Cable says that the Pats are holding up the trade and Seymour wants to be Rai

    This 2 and a 5 in 2010 is interesting.Mike Lombardi used to be in the Raiders FO,so he knows what he's talking about.

    Mike May**** said,long-term,this ia a steal for NE,especially if there's a rookie salary cap in 2011.

    May**** also said when he saw the Pats in camp,thar Ron brace looked really good and can play NT,as well as Seymour's spot in a 3-4.

    Eight years of Patriot football and three rings......Tom, you seriously want us to be believe Seymour is thrilled about moving to Oakland?

    Re: Tom Cable says that the Pats are holding up the trade and Seymour wants to be Rai


    Some of us felt right off that it had to be BB that was dictating the terms of this trade, not Al Davis, and that BB and Kraft were eyeing the 2011 first rounder - - not adding a fourth 2nd rounder next year.

    The Palace Intrigue is occuring in Oakland - - there must be some kind of internal coup taking place - - honestly, they simply can't let this escaped Alzheimer's patient gut their organization. Honestly, it would not surprise me if they are talking with the league offices about nullification due to competency isues - -and that they are merely playing for time until Goodell rules on this. 10% chance they are in for an engrossing estate court case in the Bay Area.

    HBO doesn't need any script writers for their next great Sunday night show - - the script is already there in Oakland - - it could rival Six Feet Under, The Sopranos or Mad Men.

    Re: Tom Cable says that the Pats are holding up the trade and Seymour wants to be Rai

    A 2011 first instead of a 2010 2nd and a 2010 makes much more sense than us wanting a 2011 1st instead of a 2010 first.

    Also, when the rumors were flying, someone suggested that pioli had offered a 2010 2nd and would still do so if the oakland deal fell through.

    From my perspective, the compensation seems a bit insufficient. For me a 2011 1st is about equal to the 2010 2nd as these last couple of posts indicate. I would also note that Belichick demonstrated that a 2009 3rd was worth a 2010 2nd.

    In the end, we had plenty of draft choices in 2009, and have plenty in 2010. Belichick wanted to dump Seymour and a 2011 draft choice was the best value to the team that he could get.

    Most recent I read was that the holdup is Seymour looking for a new deal from Oakland before reporting. Which makes all the sense in the world actually.

    Whats a week or two of game checks to grab a 6-8 mil signing bonus?

    I don't think McDaniels would be dumb enough to give up a 1st rounder.
    Seymours probably in his basement right now, hitting his knee with a hammer.
