Who the heck are you!? (Introduction Thread)

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Welcome to the brand spanking new forum fellas!

It's no doubt we were one of the more active fan bases on the previous forum. Tons of members came and went, but we still all managed to rep the Raiders hard (sometimes too much ;)). I think it would be a great idea to get to know one another a bit better. New and old posters!

I'm stealing a blank questionnaire from a rival forum (some stinky animal fan base). I encourage everyone to jump in and fill in as much as you feel comfortable with!

Sport teams other then the obvious: 

  • NHL: Calgary Flames
  • MLB: Not a major baseball fan, but I have to support Canada's team in the Blue Jays
  • NBA: Once again Canada's team in the Raptors, but I also enjoy Golden State due to them being from Oakland (liked them before they got insane OKAY?)

Past Raiders: Kirk Morrison and Scrabble were a couple of my favs

Current Raiders: Cooper is probably my favorite current Raider, but I also closely follow Carr, Mack and Joseph. I think Vanderdoes will be a top guy soon too

Movies: Almost any action, comedy or horror/thriller move. Some favs would be Old School, Con Air (lol), Behind Enemy Lines, Super Troopers, etc

Tv Shows: Breaking Bad, BMS

Actors/Actresses: Will Farrell is my dude. Also a major fan of Leo. Elisha Cuthbert has always been my celeb crush

Music: Anything but country and classical. Fav would most likely be rock

Foods: Spice! Mexican, italian, sushi, bbq, whatever. Not a picky eater whatsoever

Things to do in Free Time (Please abide by Forum Rules for this one!): Going to the gym, partying (a bit too much probably), gaming a bit, and overall spending time with friends/family

What Made You a Raiders Fan: So tough to remember. I had a friend who had a Moss jersey way back in the day and I think I loved the colors and logo. I started following them more closely over the years to the point I was obsessed in middle school.

Favorite part of 2017, so far: Getting a new car

About Yourself


Name: Navid
Age: 29
Occupation: Financial advisor
Location: London born and raised

Favorites

Sport teams other then the obvious: 

  • NHL: Don't watch it.
  • MLB: Will never get into it.
  • NBA: Only watch a few games from the Playoffs and that's it. Of course the Warriors for the simple fact... The O!

Past Raiders: Nnamdi Asomugha

Current Raiders: Khalil Mack

Movies: American Gangster, Inception, Dark Knight and Man of Steel are the first ones that come to mind. Definitely more, though.

Tv Shows: Breaking Bad, Fresh Prince, My Wife and Kids, Viva La Bam, Sopranos and, of course, GOT.

Actors/Actresses: Leonardo DiCaprio. With actresses, as long as they're fine, they're my favourite.

Music: Hip. Hop... plus anything with a great beat.

Foods: *Bias alert* Iranian/Afghan food. Nigerian, Caribbean and anything else that is spicy.

Things to do in Free Time: Gym rat, learning new things everyday. Make the other half and family happy. Make friends laugh.

What Made You a Raiders Fan: Older brother had a Raiders jacket in the early 90s and I saw it whilst going through family photos. Found out through a friend that NFL showed on Sky Sports (sports channel in the UK and other parts of Europe). Fell in love with the sport after watching The Waterboy, whilst adding to the fact that Little Giants was my favourite childhood film... So, when I started watching the highlights of the NFL I saw the Raider logo without having a damn clue about rules or records and stuck with the team ever since. Love for the team grew bigger and bigger over the years to the point where Sundays from September to February are out of limits for any kind of plans. I went to Oakland for the first two home games of the 2015 season and it was the best experience of my life!

Favorite part of 2017, so far: Buying my brothers share of our house... And of course, Donald Trump imposing limitations for any Iranian coming to America. Regardless of Nationality. Fun times.
