So, with the Raiders... All the gang thugs in LA would wear Raiders gear. It got so bad that ammusment parks, schools, movie theaters, etc... wouldn't let people wear their gear at their establishment. People were told to wear their shirts inside out and take off hats or just turned away completly... Then, at the games, there was always some sort of gang violence. So, most folks that could afford their gear or season passes didn't want to.
