The Official Oakland Raiders Suck Thread

No. Just no. You need to forbid your friend from talking about sports or watching sports with you. You cannot like the football team of one city and the baseball team of its nearest rival. That is against the rules of sports fandom. You ever hear of a Yankees-Patriots fan? It is not allowed.

We can all like the Warriors though, and we can all ignore the Sharks.

Hardly the same thing, there. Oakland and SF and 4.5 miles apart.

Yea I think I remember Raider fans not wanting to "over pay" or something like that....I think it's just funny that while the 49ers are loaded with stars, Raider fans await Woodson's return like he's the 2nd coming. lol

Try having a friend/roommate who grew up in Maryland that's an Oakland A's/Dallas Cowboys fan. Trust me that type of bandwagon crap is brutal. I like the SF Giants, 49ers, and Sharks. Yes the Sharks choke often, and the 49ers have had glory taken from them. However I love my teams and cannot see myself liking the Ratbirds or Foreskkkins in this state. The Orioles are the only respectable team in this state.

I was over in Oakland last week on work and I saw a lot of Seahawks gear over there in groups of Raider fans. The level of Niner hate among Raider fans has never been higher. It's kind of strange and pathetic to me - probably an extension of the raging inferiority complex the East Bay has in general over the fact that nobody in the world says, "Hey, I'm vacationing in Oakland next week!" if they're heading to the SF Bay Area. Oh, and it is still called the San Francisco Bay Area.

Chris Mannix ‏@ChrisMannixSI

So the Raiders fired PR man for not being able to stop a SI story that recounts blunder after blunder in the Davis regime? That about right?

Bill Williamson ‏@espn_afcwest

Why is #Raiders firing Zak Gilbert a big deal? His hiring was supposed be part of culture change. His curious firing reeks of old regime.

JH, Crabs and Kaep could've all been Raiders in the alternate, evil Spock universe....
I think our rivalry with them has drastically diminished in the last year or so. I would say the Niners top rival without question is the Seattle. After that we have Oak, Arz, and Dallas. Maybe throw the Saints in there as well
Lowell Cohen, who everyone around here loves to hate, sure ripped the Raiders a new one in his latest article. Basically, he calls Mark Davis a "twit."

Again, the raiders are my surprise team in the nfl. I say they go 8-8
