Defensive lineman Howie Long failed to show at training camp in Oxnard on Friday. "I'm surprised he's not here," Coach Art Shell said. "I expected him in." Long's agent, Leigh Steinberg, indicated Thursday that an agreement in principle had been reached on Long's desire to renegotiate his contract. The last-minute hangup, according to Shell, hinges on fine money. Long is being assessed $4,000 a day for staying out of camp. To date, he has been fined $88,000.

Greg Skrepenak will start at left offensive tackle against the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday's exhibition game at Stanford Stadium. Skrepenak, the Raiders' second-round draft choice in 1992, will replace Gerald Perry, who will not play because of an injured tricep. Skrepenak played guard and tackle as a backup last season, but had been working only as a guard in training camp. "He's played both positions for us, so it was an easy move," Coach Art Shell said.

The ambiguity in an NFL policy that allowed a reporter to be barred from Raider training camp last season is being removed, according to Commissioner Paul Tagliabue. Eric Noland, a reporter for the Daily News of Los Angeles, was barred from the Raiders' camp in Oxnard because the team believed his coverage was negative. "The policy was ambiguous," Tagliabue said. "But that loophole is being closed and the matter is resolved. We're going to spell it out."

It began with guard Steve Wisniewski and defensive lineman Nolan Harrison. It ended with bodies rolling in all directions. After battling each other for nearly a month in a tough training camp, and, last week, practicing against the Dallas Cowboys and playing against the Green Bay Packers, the Raiders finally let out their pent-up tension with a brawl during Tuesday's practice in Oxnard. At one point, there were about 10 players involved. "It looked like a hockey game," one Raider official said.

Former pitcher Steve Blass of the Pirates was asked by Paul Meyer of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to provide some keys to an effective team meeting and how a manager can best get the players' attention. "Door-slamming at the start and at the end is good," Blass said. "Volume on doors is very important. "And it should be unstructured. Tipping over the TV set is good, something like that, something that can't be readily fixed. "At the end of the tirade, muttering is good.

It was thumbs down for both sides Sunday at Stanford Stadium. Thumbs down on the Raiders for being blown out by the San Francisco 49ers, 27-0, in an exhibition game before a sellout crowd estimated at85,000. And thumbs down for the 49ers, as well. Just one thumb down, actually. The most important, that of quarterback Steve Young. Young, the NFL's most valuable player last season, broke the thumb on his passing hand in the first quarter and could be out four to five weeks.
