A man has been sentenced to 55 years to life in prison for killing the daughter of former Oakland Raiders star Fred Biletnikoff in 1999.
Mohammed Haroon Ali received the sentence Thursday in San Mateo County Superior Court after being convicted of first-degree murder in March for killing his then-girlfriend Tracey Biletnikoff.
At the sentencing, the San Mateo County Times reports the NFL Hall of Famer called Ali an ''animal'' and said his hatred for him would never go away.
Prosecutors say Ali strangled his 20-year-old girlfriend at a drug and alcohol treatment center during a fight over whether he had relapsed.
Ali insisted it was an accident, but testified he pulled off her pants to make it look like a sex crime. He repeatedly apologized in court Thursday.

1. Darren McFadden’s Health- If McFadden can stay healthy and provide the Raiders with a formidable rushing attack, Carson Palmer and the receiving corps should have all kinds of space to work with in the passing game. McFadden’s game-breaking speed is a game changer and something opposing teams must account for. No running back on [...]
Even though the 2012 NFL Draft ended about 2 months ago, I think it’s never too early for a mock draft. Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen did a great a great job trying to improve the team during the offseason, but there are still some big holes on this team. As of now at: Defensive [...]
This season the Oakland Raiders will start a new regime. After the passing of longtime owner Al Davis, the franchise shifted its operations to first time general manager Reggie McKenzie, who was formerly the director of pro personnel for the Green Bay Packers. His first order of business was to fire Hue Jackson and hire first time head coach Dennis Allen. As the Raiders move in...
The Oakland Raiders liked wide receiver Rod Streater before the 2012 NFL Draft, but a combination of several needs and just five picks, did not allow them to select him. Things worked out for the Raiders when Streater signed with the team as an undrafted free agent out of Temple and has worked his way up to first team reps.
“I think he’s earned the right to get the reps and...
The Oakland Raiders have just wrapped up their mandatory mini-camp, giving the players some time off before the “real fun” begins. Although the players are “technically” on their own time, they have a lot of work to do to get up to speed on brand new playbooks for both the offense and the defense before [...]
As the Oakland Raiders conclude their off season workouts before training camp in late July, the main goal for head coach Dennis Allen was to have a balance between offense and defense. Last year the Raiders offense far surpassed the production of their defense. This year the Raiders would like both units to be more consistent and effective.
“I think that, just as...
In the wide-open AFC West, an up-and-coming restored regime is laying the foundation for great things to soon come to fruition.
While injuries weren’t the biggest reason the Oakland Raiders fell short of postseason play in 2011, the return of defensive end Matt Shaughnessy and running back Darren McFadden is only more reason for optimism for Oakland in the upcoming season.
After spending most of the past two months installing an entirely new playbook on offense and defense and building a relationship between a new coaching staff and players, the Oakland Raiders ended their offseason program.
The team held its final minicamp practice and meetings on Thursday before splitting up for the next six weeks. When new coach Dennis Allen next gathers his entire...
-One of the biggest differences due to the changes in regime this year versus the last 50 years is the amount of information allowed to media. Gone is the "penalty box" in which media must stay during practices. Media is now allowed to range up and down the field. This allows different perspectives from varied vantage points, which is all the better for the fans.Raiders...
Oakland Raiders safety Michael Huff is really happy about the new defensive system that’s being installed by new head coach Dennis Allen and defensive coordinator Jason Tarver.
It sounds like the Raiders new defense is night and day compared to the old one with Al Davis.
“Nothing personal, but obviously, before with Al, rest in peace, he had his hands in all the...
Some quick hits from Wednesday's minicamp practice, the 2nd of 3:-There was a rookie that played on the first team offense in the stead of Denarius Moore, who injured his hamstring at Tuesday's practice. The surprise was that the rookie that was elevated to first team wasn't OTA and minicamp standout Juron Criner, a 4th round draft pick, but rather UDFA WR Rod Streater...
