ThePostGame.com is reporting that the NFL ordered new Raiders coach Hue Jackson to sever ties to a supplements company that sells a product containing a banned substance.
The website for Sports With Alternatives To Steroids says "The Ultimate Spray" includes IGF-1, a byproduct of human growth hormone that is banned by the NFL.
According to ThePostGame.com's report on Wednesday, Jackson began endorsing the company when he was an assistant with the Baltimore Ravens from 2008 to 2009, and ended his connection to SWATS this month.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy tells ThePostGame.com that the league "prohibits coaches from any relationship with a supplement company" and Jackson is now in compliance.
Jackson says he is no longer affiliated with the company.
Tiger Woods' re-felted pool table is for all of Raider Nation.
To no surprise, quarterback Derek Carr approves of the new look.
The golf legend tweeted a picture of his new table where he went with silver felt and a Raiders logo right in the middle. Woods' table also has silver and black balls with the Raiders logo on them.
Woods grew up in Southern California and attended Stanford in 1994, the Raiders' last year in Los Angeles. That same year, Woods helped the Cardinal become the NCAA Division I golf champions before turning pro.
Marshawn Lynch first tasted Cassie Nickelson's food when he was nine years old while she catered out of her Oakland apartment.
"When he was 9-years-old, he came across the street to get a hamburger and French fries. 25-cent French fries and a 75-cent hamburger," Nickelson said to KTVU.
Lynch, 31, is now set to take over Nickelson's popular soul-food restaurant, Scend's Restaurant and Bar, in Emeryville. Nickelson, 79, will be retiring in August.
"I'm comfortable with him and I like him," Nickelson said.
Lynch will not become the official owner until the liquor license changes hands. Scend's, an acronym for Nickelson's children and grandchildren, is known for its seafood, fried chicken and red beans.
