  1. The ________ Raiders? Update: Talks with Oakland resume

    I would've agreed with you when it was first announced, but now im not so sure. As an NHL fan I've been amazed at how well the Vegas Golden Knights have done attendance wise. I know last season may be a bad example because of the success they had on the ice, but this season they are just a slightly above average team and they are currently not only selling out every home game, but are putting more people in the building than there are seats. I have family in Vegas who weren't hockey fans and are now die hard VGK fans. They hardly even followed sports before VGK.. I guess im trying to say that it can't be underestimated just how many people actually live in the Vegas area and how much they have been dying to be represented in the major leagues.. I'm not saying that the Raiders won't have the most fans of an opposing team in their stadium. They might. But don't doubt the Vegas locals jumping on the Raider bandwagon. Especially if they have success in their first season there.
  2. Derek Ansley to Tennessee/ woodson quits espn?

    So Ansley went back Tennessee as a DB coach? Odd that he would go back to the college game in only a lateral move. Especially since he had a DC job lined up before joining the Raiders. Makes me think that its possible the Raiders were "pushing" him out of the door.. giving him a chance to find a new job before getting officially fired. All speculation of course.. I can't find any info on his contract for the Raiders. Was it only a 1yr deal to begin with?

    The Raiders are literally the red headed step child of the NFL.
  5. Week 5 GDT: Raiders at Chargers

    But you've said the Raiders will lose 44-14 every week..

    Wow.. Just wow..
  7. Week 4 - Raiders vs. Browns

    ..And I just got you to come back into the thread you were boycotting. Seriously though, the amount of people who are posting always goes down when the team is losing and it's to be expected. I just thought it was funny that instead of "I don't even want to go on FF cause everyone will be whining" you pretty much announced that "I'll be in the other team's thread cause at least they will be active and happy". It's like a little kid who didn't make the baseball team but he hides in a tree in the outfield and watches the team practice without him. He visualizes that he had his own team that he was the star of and they beat down the team that cut him. I apologize I'm bored and just drank a little too much coffee..
  8. Week 4 - Raiders vs. Browns

    Just don't get it man.. GDTs are for us fans to enhance our experience during the game. How does boycotting something that was made by fans for fans do anything besides lower the quality of the experience of the fans participating? You're like the kid at the top of the slide who won't let anyone down until little Johnny gives you your toy back..
  9. Week 4 - Raiders vs. Browns

    Raiders schedule has been far from easy.. Super Bowl favorites, to Mile High on a short week, to an east coast early game against an undefeated team. Their schedule from here on out gets much easier and I don't think 8-5/9-4 to finish the season is that far out of the question. The Raiders aren't nearly as bad as some people on here are making them out to be. They just need some red bull in the locker room at the half and they should be golden!

    Does that mean Mark is Jesus?

    Al Davis gave birth? How did I not hear about this?
  12. Week One GDT: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders

    Very happy with how well the Raiders are playing, without the penalties the game would be way different. Kolton Miller is playing solid. Penn is playing solid. Defense is playing solid (minus the penalties), and the offensive play calling has been A+. Very excited overall as I was super nervous that this could've gone the opposite direction.
  13. Week One GDT: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders

    More penalty yards against the Raiders than the Rams offense has gained. Both of their scores were largely dependent on questionable PI calls..
