Has anyone here watched their NFL team play at a rival's stadium? I've seen my team (Denver) play in Oakland twice, and in SD and KC.
What about you guys?

Back in the 70s, I think 76... I went to Cleveland to see the Steelers. It was about the only way I was able to attend a Steeler game. Back then, the Browns played at I think was named Municipal Stadium and it sat over 80,000 people. So, I was able to drive up and see a game with some friends from Youngstown.

Steelers lost.... and the Browns fans weren't exactly receptive to having Steeler fans in attendance. Saw more than one fight and saw one guy actually relieve himself in a cup and them pour it on a group of Steeler fans.

I now live in San Jose and went to see a Niner game in Oakland. I'm not a 49er fan but the folks I went with were fans of the Niners. The harassment they got from the Oakland fans was horrible. To this day, I couldn't care less if they (the Raiders) ever win another game. I didn't feel that way before that game....

Went to the Packers vs Bears in Soldier Field on New Years eve a few years ago. It was fun based on the fact we beat the Bears. Bear fans around us were nice, we traded insults but not fighting. I remember that was the night Favre acted like he was going to retire for the first time, if only I could have known.

well, I'm all about the Raiders never winning another one. The way they've played lately and their management may make that a reality!

I got some comments hurled my way as a Denver fan in Oakland. Lots of fights, lots of cops, lots of drunk idiots!
