  1. Didn't look like it on that sack
  2. Finally a 1st down! No amount of beer is making this easy.
  3. This is the most partisan London game I've been to. Normally quite a mix of jerseys, but this looks to be dominated by Raiders and Seahawks jerseys. Probably more Seahawks jerseys but we're definitely louder.
  4. Hey, I've been an on and off fan for 30 years, so I've seen plenty of shame; this recent bout feels uniquely odd though since Gruden's homecoming! My brother is Bears fan, so this season just sucks full stop. From memory when its rained like this for the London games the pitch (sorry 'field') has cut up pretty badly as it's a football (sorry 'soccer') pitch and not designed for the heavy footfall of an NFL game. I have a bad feeling about this one, but I live in hope.
  5. Good morning all. It's a classic autumn afternoon in London. Beautiful sunny day yesterday, but now dark, cold and mist like rain forecast all day. Our so called 'national stadium' has a roof that doesn't close fully and gets bloody cold/damp on days like today. I hope we manage to get off to a fast start today (and I question arriving a day later than the Seahawks) because if heads go down today I can't see us pulling off a come from behind win. Onwards and upwards as we say in these parts.
  6. Week 4 - Raiders vs. Browns

    Tuck your shirt in man.
  7. Week 4 - Raiders vs. Browns

    Reggie could have ended the drive by tackling Mayfield who was standing right in front of him. Didn't do it, or perhaps, COULD'NT do it.
  8. Week One GDT: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders

    Yes!!!!! Morning everyone from London. Penalty aside, great to see such a positive start to the season!
  9. Week One GDT: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders

    Evening all - just posted over in the intro thread. Newbie here - excited for MNF, but frankly terrified of what might happen. Off to get 5 hours zzz's before logging into NFL GamePass at 3.20am London time. See you then!
  10. The Welcome Thread!

    Good evening from London everyone - here goes my first post... Been a Raiders fan ever since one of our few TV channels started showing NFL highlights many many years ago. Everyone at school chose to follow either the Raiders or the Redskins because of Superbowl XVIII - this dates me!! Been following to various degrees since then and lurking on the forum for a few years, probably since the whole Kiffin/JaWalrus debacle. Was really looking forward to this season with the return of Gruden, but have to admit my enthusiasm has been tempered somewhat since the draft, the general roster shenanigans and issues over trade value in and out of the draft. Didn't stop me buying my tickets for the Wembley game today though - I think the game sold out in about an hour. You can still get tickets for the Chargers game at Wembley and they've been on sale for months! Watched the Bears/Packers game last night, which didn't help my mood. Anyway, will see you all online at 3.20am London time when I log into NFL GamePass for MNF. Cheers!!!
