Raider Nation: The Best Thing Ever

First off, let me set the record straight.  The Raider Nation is the largest fan base in the entire world.  The San Diego Chargers fan base pretty much starts and ends in San Diego, CA.  There are some stragglers, but those are the stragglers that were with them in the Los Angeles Chargers era.  Maybe if the Chargers moved to Los Angeles they might grow a larger fan base, but that is another doubtful claim.  Plainly put, the only thing that Chargers fans have left to do is slam on the Oakland Raiders and their fans.  I will say one good thing for the San Diego Chargers, they got rid of their Head Coach that couldn’t bring them any championships, Norv Turner.  How many Super Bowl wins do the San Diego Chargers have anyway?  Oh yes, none!

Now, Chargers fans and their blog sites and web sites are jumping on the NFL band wagon.  A recent article that posted on Fansided, “Raider Nation: Nothing but a Third World Country” discussed how poorly the Oakland Raiders will do this year.  Imagine that, Chargers fans believing that the Oakland Raiders will perform poorly.  This is like a bad “B Movie” that keeps getting re-made over and over.  With no Super Bowl wins, how can any team claim that they are better than the other.  Although, the one thing that was true in the article was how poorly Phillip Rivers’ play has been in recent years.  The cry baby of the NFL is just that, a cry baby.  That’s all he will amount to be.  Maybe the Chargers should think about starting Brad Sorensen, the quarterback they selected at the end of the 2013 NFL Draft, to take over for Rivers.  Maybe, just maybe, the Chargers might have a chance to win at least 7 games this year.

Chargers fans want to slam on Darren McFadden and his ability to stay healthy.  All the while, Ryan Matthews hasn’t been healthy since he entered the NFL.  As a matter of fact, Matthews only had one season where he made it 14 games before injury (2011).  The other two seasons (2010 and 2012) he was only able to play 12 games.  The only “Third World Country” I see is Bolt Nation, or Chargers Haven, or what do you call yourselves again?  Chargers, please, talk when you have something to talk about.  I guarantee the Oakland Raiders will beat the Chargers this year.  The Raiders are underestimated this year, and I can’t wait for the regular season to start.  This team is being built the right way, and the Chargers are beginning their rebuilding process.  That’s right Chargers fans, you are rebuilding with a totally new coaching staff.  Phillip Rivers is not your savior, but please keep relying on him.

The Raider Nation is far from a third world country.  We are our own Nation of loyal fans who understand our team.  Every team goes through ups and downs.  Sometimes the downs last longer than the ups, but the Raiders have Super Bowl Trophies in their long storied history.  How many Super Bowl wins do the Chargers have again?  That’s right, zero.  The Raiders have also won more AFC West Division Championships and Conference Championships than the Chargers, but keep believing that the Chargers are better than the Raiders.  Raider Nation knows that there is no contest.  Even sports broadcaster and writer Peter King knows this.  He was interviewed at Raiders training camp and stated, “The Raiders are an intriguing team with a lot of pieces that are going to be the foundation for the future.”

By all means Chargers fans, keep bringing the hate.  All you have left is hate.  At the end of the day, your team has been around as long as the Oakland Raiders, and they still haven’t won a championship.  No offense, but this isn’t going to be the year of the Chargers either.  As a matter of fact, I believe that the Chargers will be 4th in the AFC West and probably competing for the number one 2014 NFL Draft selection.  Raider Nation is the best and all other fan bases can hate on us all they want.  We will be triumphant again, and it all begins this year.

  • Alter Ego

    Its always the same argument…we talk about now and you talk about 20 years ago.
    The Raiders blog gets posted on our site when the subject matter is the Chargers – I never visit.
    I did win the lottery.
    Your arguments are redundant and not relevant – nothing new in any insight…other Raider fans represent much better than anything you have written…thats why I think you are stupid – showing up for class unprepared.
    Its a waste of time.

  • Jon

    you are visiting now moron on a subject on the raiders idiot and I’m always prepared and winning $5 or $100 on the lottery doesn’t truly count I’ve won the lottery too. I’m talking winning the lottery for real the big cash not small petty cash (use your common sense) your argument’s are irrelevant and incoherent. you come to this cite trying your best to talk smack but I see and individual or neanderthal making a point that no one will ever agree with take your pathetic excuse of a man or whatever you are and crawl under what shit can you came from and let the real football fans talk. runaway boy my ego is bigger then yours I should be called alter ego not you I can do better then you fool

  • Jon

    I know plenty on the current issues the raiders have faced so far and so the chargers and the broncos or the chiefs or any team the matter of fact. I’m not only a football historian but a football freak. I live, breathe football it’s better then running the streets. I’m not going to tell you my life story and don’t give a damn about yours, all I see is a fool of man having a clown for his avatar talkiing shit where you truly don’t belong but hey it is a free country and I’m done enough bullshitting with you. Peace

  • Alter Ego

  • Statzman44

    you have any family, I can’t see someone like you having a family. I see you having major issues probably something bad happen to you to have all this hate and I’m glad you do. Hate has a way of ruining someone’s life ageing you quickly and building bad habits, I feel sorry for you, bro. It makes me laugh and wonder how and the hell where you born.

    one last thing, are you really a chargers. San Diego is beautiful with cocky people. are you suppose to be snooty with shit for brains. Yes my real name is Jon. My alter ego is statzman44. I’m just baffled so go ahead make fun of me, I know you will you can’t resist anyways you are going to be the only one making fun of me, and it’s fun watching you try. my point is to see how low you can go, I’ll be watching an observing and waiting patiently for my time to strike we might be different but one thing I can say is that we have greater fan base then your team will ever have. You are the real puts and what is your alter ego, it’s kinda of a phrase of what you really are aka the fool, that’s what clowns are fools, clumsy and stupid through and through. I have a real life to attend too and I wasting enough of my time with you weirdo.
