Must be sad to have to root for another team just because you hate the 49ers.

that and Bowman interfered with Roddy White.

they're nothing more than annoying pimple.
Such an irrelevant team. Hardly worth the effort of disliking them.
Win with class. What's the point in beating up on the Raiders.
I honestly dont get the hatred between the two teams...it is sad to see what they have become...I look at the Raiders as our little brother team, and I actually find myself rooting for them often..they are not our division rival or even in the same conference for that matter i.e Cowgirls, Fudgepackers, etc... Hope one day they will be relevant again, but it's not looking too bright for their future.

my gf's brother has to leave town this weekend.... he is a raider fan and cannot stand living in the bay area while the 49ers in the superbowl.

dude is smart too, hes an engineer at genentec.... but that is sad if you let football bother you that much.
All the years of losing has just demented most Raider fans. After the Rich Gannon and Tim Brown era they have watched their team get worse every year. I feel kinda sorry for them ...

i tell them to watch the film. the LOS was the 10, bowman bumped him at the 5, he let go when the ball was in the air and knocked it down. even though i concede that the roughing call on kaep was pretty BS, still of course they just say i'm the homer........

After only one season in charge of the Raiders and after going a respectable 8-8, the organization fired coach Hue Jackson after the 2011 season, and just like that, Jackson disappeared into the anonymous world of former coaches searching for assistant gigs (Jackson found a home, once again, in Cincinnati).

But while recently talking with Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter, Jackson wondered what might have been if he had taken a job offered to him by late Raiders owners Al Davis in 2009.

That job: Raiders general manager.

Oakland already had hired Jackson as the team's offensive coordinator under then-head coach Tom Cable, but Davis apparently respected Jackson enough to offer him the GM job. Jackson told Trotter that the reason he didn't take the job was because he loved coaching too much.

"Jackson says he turned it down because his passion is coaching and working with players," Trotter writes. "He says he and Davis never discussed him taking the head coach position -- contrary to speculation that he accepted the coordinator position with an eye on the top job."

Eventually, of course, Davis hired Jackson for the head coaching job, but after he died and his son, Mark Davis, took over ownership, the Raiders hired GM Reggie McKenzie -- who then wanted to hire his own coach and released Jackson.

If Jackson had taken the GM job, Mark Davis, of course, still could have fired him and brought in his own general manager. But as we so often see, the coach is fired before the owner lets go of his GM. That means there's a pretty decent chance Jackson would still be the Raiders GM if he had accepted Al Davis' offer in the first place.

None of us are playing. Let the teams win with class.

You have no idea about the 49ers and raiders rivalry by proximity. Being in the Bay Area, fans of both teams are obviously in each other's presence. You get large amounts of fans of any two teams in any region and I guarantee you their fans will hate each other.
