Biggs: Cable not sure why Hanson would say what he did

Oakland coach Tom Cable refused to answer whether or not he has met with Napa, Calif., police or the district attorney when the conversation turned from the Raiders’ 44-7 humiliating loss to the New York Giants in the Meadowlands to his alleged assault of ex-assistant coach Randy Hanson.

“I’m not going to answer any questions pertaining to that,’’ Cable said.

Hanson spoke for the first time to Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports and detailed how Cable threatened to kill him after knocking him from his chair in a meeting room in training camp, and allegedly fracturing his jaw.

“I respect the fact that you have to ask the question,’’ Cable said. “I don’t know why (Hanson) would do that, but the process will take care of it.’’

The process—more than two months of it—should come to a conclusion soon. There is certainly no such thing as swift justice in Napa, not with this case any way. We’re going to need to wait until the legal process plays out to learn more because the coach said little.

Cable, who has retained a criminal defense attorney according to AOL Fanhouse, was asked directly if he threw Hanson from his chair.

“I will not respond to any of that,’’ he said.

Cable said that he did not meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who has yet to take action. Cable is proceeding business as usual.

“Because there are 53 guys in that locker room and a coaching staff who need me to be strong, need me to keep pushing forward,’’ Cable said. “The process will really do what it’s got to do.’’
