Shell on coaching changes, strife

Oakland Raiders head coach Art Shell spoke about the decision to drop Tom Walsh from the offensive coordintor position and all the circumstances surrounding it on Wednesday.

Shell also questioned one of his own for "crossing the line."

"When you root against me you are rooting against the Raiders," Shell said. "It is an outrage."

His goal of having his football team on the same page may not be at the point he wishes but his message was clear, he is no longer sitting back.

"I am a fighter."

As for demoting Walsh, it wasn't an easy thing to do to a friend.
