Raiders Fire Media Relations Dir; Mark Davis Reportedly Unhappy With SI Article
Published June 3, 2013
MORE WRITING ON THE WALL? SI.com's Peter King asks, "If McKenzie's own PR pick is fired primarily because of a story Mark Davis didn't like -- Davis had exiled Gilbert to working from home for the past six weeks, since the story appeared -- what happens if the Raiders stink again this year?" You "simply cannot judge McKenzie until he has the chance to oversee at least three Raider seasons, because of the morass the Raiders were in at the time of his hire." But if Davis gets this "skittish over a magazine story, you're crazy to think McKenzie is certainly safe with another four-win season, or worse, in 2013." Gilbert's firing is "a bad sign for the immediate future of the Raiders" (SI.com, 6/3).
