Hey what's up everybody! I've been following this site for awhile now, so I thought I'd start to chime in on certain topics and contribute to this forum Cool


Just a bit about me, I live in So. Cal and I go to school full-time. Just a few years until I finish with my BA and then I'm ready to teach high school kids lol. I'm 22 years old and I've been a Raider fan ever since I can remember growing up in '90s. I sure miss the early part of last decade and I'm hoping DA can shape this team up and bring back the glory days! Raider Nation all day everyday! Twisted Evil

No doubt that it is. Thank you sir. It's definitely something you cannot be in for the money.

Whats up Raider Nation, Im a Raider fan from ohio. My dad tried to raise me to be a bengal fan but in 1988 (i was 9) i watched the Raiders vs Bengals game with him and I've been Bleedin_Silver ever since Cool I continued to support the bengals too until the 90-91 season, when Bo got injured. I remember being so mad at the bengals, i looked at my dad and said "I hope your team sucks forever" and they went like 10 years of being a joke, i kinda felt like i put a curse on them lol I've been coming to these forums for a few years now, even tried to become a member a few times but for some reason it never worked for me. Its been along time coming but i really think next year is the year we take back our division! As far as favorite Raider goes, I'd have to say Tim Brown, mainly because i grew up watching him and he was our best player during that time period. Cant wait to see whats next for Raider Nation, a GM and real defensive coordinator Shocked Twisted Evil Future is Bright

Lol that's real funny about you thinking you put a curse on them... Funny how we think we can do that when your little... When I was little I use to think the moon followed me. Lol , just me out of all the people in the world

Hey guys, new member to the forum, ive been following this place since 2008 watching, reading, experiencing all the bad moments and the good...i have seen some amazing discussions in this place, and i have seen some stuff that would make any die hard fan cry. i decided that after watching in the shadows for so long i would finally make my appearance once i finally believed that this team was making a turnaround....its a new start, a new era, and new fans...

Now, about me...I am 21 years old, have followed the Raiders since i was a child, hell the first game i ever saw was the 45-0 blowout win against the Bucs in 1999 and after that its just been a love affair with the Raiders...in other sports i have to give it to the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Ohio State Buckeyes -- baseball was never really my sport but i can hold my own with stats.. so yeah i hope we all have a great season and GO RAIDERS!!!

ps. i might need some one to hook me up with a sig or pic, cuz this stuff is confusing

Hey guys, my friend has been watching your site and talked me into joining unfortunately he is a Giants Fan, lol.

Now about me, Im 21 years old from New York. (Specifically from Long Island) Love the Raiders especially because everyone at school bags on me for it but respects me for going through the 10+ crapper years without switching.

How i became a fan?

First football game i watched from start to finish was the superbowl where the raiders played against the Buccs. From that moment on, i fell in love with the Raiders. My dad and uncles talked me into not being a fan because they told me that they were an older team and they needed to get rebuilt. That only made me like them more because i would rather watch a team grow from the bottom than pick a team that is already there and set for years to come.

I can honestly say that, I am a draft expert. I know it sounds cocky and stupid but I am usually spot on with how players will develop. Yes, I have my fair share of 'what was i thinking'. For example, I thought Rolando McClain was going to be the a superstar in the making and a 'can't miss' player. Man was i wrong. I was a Rolando Beliver even after his first two years, I still believed that he had a few years to develop.

My favorite players on this past years team in this order.
1)Charles Woodson
2)Sio Moore, my first mock..I had him in there cause i fell in love with him.
3)Nick Roach
4)Tyvon Branch
5)Dj Hayden - give the man a chance, yes we reached on him but he showed some good things out there, dont let Riley Cooper game fool you. Riley Cooper had a mean streak those few weeks and if you watch the tape, he only really got killed on one or two deep balls. Some of those he was stride for stride with him and made a few bad adjustments.
