Oh how they try though. Their stories run in newspapers, in magazines, on websites, and social media circles, bashing the pride and passion that we carry for our beloved Oakland Raiders. Things like studies conducted by two college students barely out of diapers who base a fans love of their team on financials alone. That, or Bay Area media sites who jumped on the Forty Niners bandwagon and use their position to display as much slander about the Raiders as possible. These are just a few examples of what we, the Raider Nation, call “Haters.” Go on and hate us some more. Criticize us all you want to, because you will never deter us. We can handle anything that is thrown our way.
If you don’t like what we wear, don’t watch us. However, if you must know, what we wear is our own way of showing off the pride, spirit, and passion we feel for our team. It cannot be taken away with words or by force. So don’t even try. Walk away before you get tossed away. We will defend ourselves against any and all haters, but we will not succumb to the petty and piss-poor derelict opinions held by those outside of the Raider Nation. We will simply call a spade a spade and leave it at that.
