Oakland Raiders head coach Bill Callahan speaks at a news conference in San Diego Jan. 22, 2003.

The day before Super Bowl XXXVII something rather surprising happened. Oakland Raiders head coach Bill Callahan sent star centre Barrett Robbins home after he went AWOL. Reports indicated that Robbins had ventured south to Tijuana, Mexico for some binge-drinking, but the reality was that he was suffering from depression and bi-polar disorder. Without Robbins snapping the ball, the Raiders fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-21.
