FEAR THE NATION?

 “The silver and black have attracted an unholy fan base of hell-raiders, gangbangers and inveterate knife-lickers, all of whom firmly believe that skipping town…” 

-GQ Magazine in naming the Raiders the fourth-worst fan base in the country. 

GQ Magazine ranked us #4? WTF does GQ know anyways besides what shirt to wear with your sensible loafers. I mean, Raider games aren’t half as bad as they used to be. The new “Code of Conduct” for fans is a step in the right direction. I wouldn’t take my kids to games in the past for fear of the unknown.

 I hear many Raider fans say, “I love the Raiders, but hate the fans”.  Well, I love the Raiders and I accept the fans for who they are. 99% of the fans are there for the game. The one percent are the idiots who give the nation a black eye and have douche bags like GQ talk about us.  The only other pro sports franchise(s) to beat us was #2 and #1, Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies respectfully. There is no mistaking a PA fan. They were the ones who boo Santa of all people!  

So Nation, as we wait for the billionaires and the millionaires to hash things out, go out and help an old lady across the street, but do it in a Raiders jersey. Thats so the public knows we aren’t all “hell-raiders, gangbangers and inveterate knife-lickers”. (Most of us)
