. You are just rookies in that arena, compared to the Raiders!
No team was ever more hated and "gone after" by the league, than the Raiders.
Harrison didn't help his cause any with his remarks about wanting to hurt the guys he hits. Yes, I know what he meant, and I think he's right, but I'm sure it didn't sit well with Goodell. It's not right, but sometimes you gotta know when to "play the game", so to speak.
i've followed both teams very closely for a long time. I disagree (highly) with what you just stated. The Raiders are not ANY more hated by others than the Steelers are (although many, many more people love the Steeler teams).
Both teams get their fair share of bad breaks, bias calls & fines, & excessive penalty flags.
Either "side" could argue that their team gets f***ed more than the other team. Neither are "rookies" as you stated in comparison with the other.
