Crawford and Watson must be excited. We will probably have another Englishman on the team. Wish it wasn't a home game. One less home game in Oakland


They're probably the reason the Raiders are playing in London.
I doubt there's that many Englishmen playing in the NFL.

No more games in Mexico? Pfft.

Good for the European fans tho. I'm not really concerned with the ramifications on the schedule or record. Raiders are big in Europe and hopefully there aren't many "Busy Bodies" in the stadium.

If they win that is a positive effect on the W/L department. Not really sure I follow ?


I don't follow either.

Raiders have a pretty large European following. Will be interesting to see a bunch of wankers costumed up repping the nation..... I kid, I kid.


Extended travel in a season has never been a positive on any team in any season. Hey! i got a good idea. lets just play all of our games in different countries! i'm sure we can find raider fans in china, russia, south africa, and canada! we can make so many people happy right!? ..... oh thats right... they are the OAKLAND raiders.

This is a bunch of bull crap!!! Evil or Very Mad

WTF??? We only get to see the team 8 times per year and now we have to lose on to England??? I'm pretty pissed off about this. I pay a pretty penny for my season tickets and I had better be getting some sort of benefit from it other than not being charged for that one game.

GTFO with that crap. I am sure there will be Raider fans from all over the UK and Europe looking forward to the game not just 1 city.


I'm getting my ticket as soon as they go on sale.

just like me bro

It'll put us at a disadvantage because we'll only have seven home games in Oakland as opposed to eight.


We'll still have 8 home games, unless somehow we don't play the chargers next season.
