Tom Cable addressed the media following today's practice at the Raiders' Alameda compound and was hit with questions regarding the pending Napa District Attorney's filing decision, expected to come at about 3:30 p.m. Following, then, a transcript of the related questions aimed at Cable, and his responses to them:
Do you know what's going to come out of Napa?
"I actually have no idea. I just, coming off the field, I was just told that there's something this afternoon, so I am unaware of anything. Again, I don't have any comment."
Have you been contacted by the league at all?
"I don't have any comment."
Look forward to resolution?
"Absolutely. Absolutely. That's the one thing I will comment on."
Will you comment after the D.A's announcement?
"We'll deal with that when the time comes."
Can we expect that we'll be chatting with you one way or the other later in the afternoon?
"No, I wouldn't expect that. I've got the Jets; I've got to get ready for that."
Are you worried about the D.A.'s decision?
"Nope. I trust in what's right."
How difficult has this legal situation been for you?
"Again, I have not (been distracted). I coach this team; that's my job and I've really been focused on it. That fact that I' believe in what's right, that's really all I can say. I trust it."
There a Plan B should something happen?
"No. Plan B is get through today, now that I've heard about it. And Plan B is to go win on Sunday."
Sense any distraction among the players?
"I don't believe so, you know? Again, we haven't talked about a lot because it's not an issue that they need to be concerned with. Their issue is, you know, getting better as a football team and we've kept that as the focal point."
