Doing your job as best as you can, with the Raiders, can still get you fired -- especially if you bench your owner's pick at quarterback.

Former head coach Tom Cable was not only fired, but ordered to pay $120,000 in fines during the 2010-11 NFL season. Apparently owner Al Davis was upset about the benching of Jason Campbell and JaMarcus Russell in favor of Bruce Gradkowski.

Mention of the loss of two days of OTAs also crop up on rumor sites.

According to ESPN.com, owner Al Davis deducted $20,000 from Cable's six final paychecks.

Cable has filed a grievance with the league to recover the cash. NFL Commissioner Robert Goodell will appoint an arbitrator to hear the case.
