We need to get the word out to all those tough guys who drive the lifted full-size diesel pickups with huge tires and coffee-can sized exhaust pipes...they clearly need Raiders gear for the full effect...

The funny thing is, they think they are fooling us! We know they are little, insecure kittens underneath the rough exterior.

Ha! call me insecure if you wish! I'd never give up my Cummins Diesel.

We'll see who's begging for help when you're stuck in a 12 foot snow drift in black forest.

Talk about generalizations. While there are some gangbangers and want to be tough guys that claim to be Raiders fans, there are plenty of real Raiders fans in Colorado and the Denver area specifically. Some are even Colorado Natives, why we choose the Raiders is different for everybody, for me it was to have something to argue with my uncles about as a small child, and the fact that I loved the teams rebel attitudes and personalities when they actually had them. The fact the still left it all on the field never hurt either.

AS for some of you trying to talk bad about the raiders and their fans, they may be down now, but do not forget they were in the superbowl just over 5 years ago, when is the last time the Broncos even got close?

Lots of transplanted Californians here as well as the gang thing. The Raiders are the bad guys of the NFL and kids want to associate with that.

January 22nd, 2006. The Broncos were one game away from winning another Superbowl.

Prior to that, we have to go back 10 years when the Denver Broncos won their 2nd Super Bowl in a row, thus ending an AFC Super Bowl Victory drought that would last about 13 or 14 years! The Raiders should be bowing down and thanking the Broncos for opening the gates to an AFC domination since then, but the Raiders had to go and screw it up by taking a beat down to the Bucs!

Heh, I love hispanic people. They are hard working, and many of my friends couldn't afford to run their businesses without their help and dedication.

Default Raider update

The score was only 41 to 14, Broncos. HAHA. Is Al Davis looking horrible or what? I'm amazed that he is still involved in the team at his age, but man, enjoy your money!! The Raiders seem to have constant turmoil. Now that Kiffin is on the rocks on a day to day basis. Raiders Coach = no job security. At least McFadden finally got a touchdown last week.
