A tweet on Twitter referring to the Raiders coach having been fired proved to be a fake.
Terry Collins of AP tweeted that the head coach of the Raiders had been sacked from his position. The news spread everywhere and only later on did Terry delete it from the social online site.

Everybody was left in a state of shock as to why such an ugly rumor would have gotten generated in the first place. The howler had not been ratified by AP either.
Terry afterwards apologized on Twitter and told readers to forget he said any such words. He said they were not true. The flying leaks said that if the Raiders lost one more game, Allen would be dead meat and history.
Please disregard my recent tweet about the Raiders. These rumors haven't been confirmed by the AP. I'm sorry.— Terry Collins (@APtcollins) September 29, 2014
I have no information about the status about the Raiders coach. I was never covering the story.— Terry Collins (@APtcollins) September 29, 2014
But the fact of the matter is that they have been on a losing streak since a long time and no such action has been taken yet. And to top it all, the player Derek Carr had an ankle sprain.
However, if the Raiders do somehow manage to give Allen the pink slip then Greg Olson will probably replace him. The world of sports extravaganza has many winners and losers.
The ultimate acid test is the performance of the player or the coach in matters having to do with the game. If there are flaws they have to be fought tooth and nail.
And if there is any ability or exceptional talent it has to be groomed by those surrounding the individual till it becomes even more prominent. In case of Allen, the current coach of the Oakland Raiders, he is not doing too well in his efforts to inspire and buck up the team.
That may be one reason why the false news of his having been fired did the rounds. It might as well serve as a premonition and warning note on his future status. But then these things are not written in stone.
The man may reform his ways and learn from his mistakes and thus prove to be a better coach and remain on board the Raiders team platform.
