 Raiders\' dysfunctional walls no problem for Hall
posted 8 years ago

ALAMEDA - Former Raiders defensive tackle Warren Sapp retired in January after a four-year stay in Oakland. He said he never would have signed with the Raiders if he knew what it was like here. Raiders cornerback DeAngelo Hall said he has had a positive experience in his first season with an NFL team other than the Atlanta Falcons. So much so that he intends to "recruit" players to join him here next season. "I don't really see it," Hall said of Sapp's assessment of what it's like playing for the Raiders. "I wasn't here with Sapp so I don't know what he went through. I don't know what was going on with him. I didn't play with him. I just played against him." New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss also voiced his displeasure at the way managing general partner Al Davis operated his franchise during Moss' two-year stay with the Raiders. At one point, he called things "fishy." Nothing that has transpired the past seven months has soured Hall on his decision to restructure his contract so that he could be traded to the Raiders. "I'm having a great time," Hall said. For the record, Sapp's comments came from a TV studio. He refrained from making such disparaging statements during his time with the Raiders. "Nobody tells you how bad it is," Sapp said. "I remember seeing (former Raiders defensive end) Trace Armstrong after spending my four years there. I wanted to choke the life out of him. I wanted to kill him "? and then (cornerback) Phillip Buchanon was there. I said, 'Phil, why didn't you tell me this? You all did wrong because any person that calls me on the telephone, (I tell them) do not go anywhere near Oakland.' " Hall had more than one run-in with then-Falcons coach Bobby Petrino last season. Everything has been rosy for Hall in Oakland. "From the top down, I like it," Hall said. "We answer to Al. Al knows us personally. It's nice when you have that personal relationship with the owner, as opposed to trying to kiss up to every head coach who comes in. That's when you probably have a problem. When you can sit down and talk to the owner about any problem, it makes it a little easier."
