Any Truth to Al Davis' Claims About Adam Schefter?
The Raiders accuse Schefter of "Anti-Raider bias based upon his relationship with Denver and Mike Shanahan." That relationship includes a book the two of them wrote together, meaning that at one time Schefter had a financial incentive to want Shanahan to be thought of highly: If people like Shanahan, they're going to be more likely to like his book, and as a writer it's obviously good for Schefter for his books to sell well. When you consider that Shanahan has hated the Raiders ever since Davis fired him as their coach, it's hard to blame the Raiders for distrusting any reporter who is so closely aligned with Shanahan.
None of this means Schefter's report that Shell is done after this year is wrong. In fact, I think it's probably right. But when a reporter writes a book with one of his subjects and then becomes an employee of the very company he covers, it can't come as a surprise that people question his objectivity.
