Re: LOL @ the Raiders
I'm actually a pretty big Raiders fan. Living in Colorado and DESPISING everything about the Denver Broncos, my affinity for the Raiders simply grew out of all the Broncos fans hatred toward them.
I would love to see them pull it together, but even with new leadership they seem incapable. The wicked witch of the west (Al Davis) is dead and the peasants are free...and they still make the same stupid mistakes. Until the Raiders, as an organization, realize that you can't hire coaches who believe they only have one year to impress (thus turning the job itself off to most qualified applicants) and that only by creating some continuity will success ever return....they will continue to suck.
The Raiders defense sucked, their QB had only half the year to get acclimated and one of the leagues best RB was out most of the season. Fix those issues and winning starts. The sooner winning returns to Oakland the better...that means I get to watch Broncos fans whine and moan. Losers.
