EXCLUSIVE

Pissed off at Marshawn Lynch dancing on the Jets' grave?

DON'T BE, says legendary Oakland rapper Too Short -- cause Beast Mode was just gettin' down the only way he knows how.

"It's pretty normal where we're from," Short told us outside Catch in WeHo. "That's how we all dance."

Of course, Marshawn's from Oakland ... so when Vell and DJ Mustard's "Oakland" track hit during a timeout in the Raiders' blowout, he had to let it flow. 

Some Jets players reportedly said Lynch's beast moves were demoralizing -- and Short definitely agrees.

Raiders' Sean Smith Charged with Felony Assault ... Over July 4th Beatdown

8/17/2017 5:27 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith -- who signed a $40 million contract last year -- was arrested Thursday and charged with felony assault, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Officials say Smith attacked his sister's boyfriend on July 4 -- beat and stomped on his head in Pasadena in the early hours. 

He's been charged with felony assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury. 

If convicted, Smith faces up to 7 years in state prison. 

It's not Smith's first brush with the law -- he was convicted of DUI stemming from a 2014 car crash in which he smashed into a light pole. 

We've reached out to the Raiders for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Smith's attorney, Daniel Rosenberg, says Smith maintains his innocence and vows to fight the charges.

Oakland Raiders Gareon Conley Rape Case Goes to Grand Jury

7/31/2017 9:23 AM PDT
Breaking News

Prosecutors are moving forward with the rape case against Oakland Raiders 1st round draft pick, Gareon Conley, this according to the Cleveland Police Dept. 

Officials say the District Attorney's office believes it has enough evidence to prosecute and they kicked the case over to a grand jury -- which will ultimately decide whether to indict the 22-year-old. 

As we previously reported, a woman claims the former Ohio State cornerback raped her at a hotel room in Cleveland on April 9 -- just days before the NFL Draft. 

Conley says the two did have "brief oral sex" -- but insists it was consensual and says there was no vaginal intercourse. 

The accuser had told police they met in the elevator at the hotel. But video shows the two partying at the same bar and leaving at the same time earlier that night. 

Meantime, the Raiders officially signed Conley to his rookie contract a few days ago -- reportedly worth more than $10 million over 4 years. 

We're guessing the team is monitoring this case very closely.

EXCLUSIVE

Metallica frontman James Hetfield is a huge Raiders fan -- and says he's "a little pissed" that his team is ditching Oakland for Sin City.

FYI, Hetfield actively campaigned for the Raiders to stay in the Bay Area -- and publicly supported Ronnie Lott in his efforts to build a new stadium for the team in Oakland.  

But those plans didn't work out and Raiders owner, Mark Davis, ultimately got league approval to move the team to Las Vegas. The team is expected to relocate in 2019.

Hetfield says he'll continue to support the Silver and Black (he stuck by them during the L.A. years) ... but it's clear he's still bummed.

EXCLUSIVE

Oakland Raiders draft pick Gareon Conley is telling investigators he did receive "brief oral sex" from his accuser on the night of the alleged sexual assault ... but insists it was consensual. 

We're told Conley says he was the recipient and that he did NOT force himself on the woman.

The former Ohio State football star is currently being investigated for rape -- after his accuser told police he sexually assaulted her in a Cleveland hotel room on April 9. 

Conley's attorney, Kevin Spellacy, says the two did engage in a "consensual sexual event" -- but says it was NOT intercourse.

The accuser told police they did have vaginal sex -- claiming he grabbed her, spun her around and raped her from behind. A rape kit was administered following the incident. 

Meanwhile, Conley met with police on Monday and provided a DNA sample and a voluntary statement.

Tim Brown says he REALLY hopes his beloved Oakland Raiders chose wisely by taking a chance on Gareon Conley ... saying, "If it goes bad for him, it's gonna go bad for the Raiders also."

The Raiders raised some eyebrows Thursday night by selecting Conley in the 1st round -- despite the fact he's in the middle of a rape investigation

Conley insists he's innocent and the Raiders clearly believe him ... and Brown says he's "hoping and praying" the team made the right bet. 

Brown raised an interesting point ... saying former Raiders owner Al Davis was never afraid to take guys who were in trouble because he felt those guys would end up being the most loyal to him. 

Makes you wonder if Al's philosophy rubbed off on his son, Mark Davis, the new guy in command of the Silver and Black.
