" Well, the good folks of Salem declared you a drunk, not a witch. You're sprung."

"A witch suspended beneath Saturn as its stationed direct exhaulted in its own house cannot lie. Reputable sources say it's why Odysseus himself dallied so long on Circe's island."

"Ah, children, be afraid of going prayerless to bed, lest the Devil be your bedfellow."

How to answer the inevitable, impossible question

If you frequent the "Ask a Raider Fan" threads our people have been putting up in other teams forums, you know that the #1 question is "Is Palmer worth the draft picks?" or some variation on that. ...


Wild West Shootout!

That's right. It's time for that biannual Wild West Shootout! The 3-5 Tebowncos invade Narrowhead Stadium to take on the 4-4 Kansas City Squaws in what is sure to be one of the most exciting games...


John Madden Looks Back at Super Bowl XI

Next weekend the Raiders will be going to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. While they rest up, it's a good time to look back at the most famous contest between these two teams. The Raiders offense...


How to Build a Bully the Raider Way

The good news is, Al showed us how to put together a team that could not only be a bully, but dominate in the Super Bowl. The bad news is, it took drafts which had 12 rounds back in the day, and...


Raider Homers and Rum Punch

It's that time of year again. Time to make that trip to QualComm. Nobody's in the mood for kool aid right now, so let's just be blunt. There's NO reason to think we're going to beat San Diego on...

Oakland Raider Black Hole Fan Club works to change image


In the last years of his life, gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson wrote: "The massive Raider Nation is beyond doubt the sleaziest and rudest and most sinister mob of thugs and wackos ever assembled in such numbers under a single 'roof,' so to speak, anywhere in the English-speaking world." Whatever, Gonzo. Me thinks they worry too much.


Exhibit (DH)B

..or Steve Corkran gets his chops busted in chat. Today was Inside the Oakland Raiders weekly chat session, and in it people got on Corkran's case for his opinion of Darrius Heyward-Bey. It's the...


So, almost two weeks to go..

Before we meet Denver for the second time. I expect at the end of this week or the beginning of next, we'll be seeing multiple Denver preview posts, including, I'm guessing, at least 6 devoted to...



Patience. You hate that word, don't you? I know I do. We're expected to show an awful lot of patience in our daily lives. Patience standing in line at the DMV while some idiot in front of you has...


Preliminary Post Game Write Up

Til the front page guys either get back from the game or sober up. The long and the short of it is, we sucked out there today in almost all ways. The QB situation, I don't need to go into that. We...


Is Jason Campbell good enough to win us a Super Bowl?

How about we cut to the chase? I'm a firm believer in it, and it saves time. Lately there have been appearing murmurs of disapproval of Jason Campbell's performance. Now we've had a little over a...

So predictions for the Stanley Cup?


I was guessing Boston in 6 and was surprised to see many of the Yahoo guys agreed with me. Not sure if that's a good thing, but I am sure after watching 7 games against Tampa, that they have a great defense, and an offense that scores goals when you least expect it. Don't agree? Then lay it out for us how it's going to play out.

Nobody's taking us serious


They think they got us no matter what, and they probably do...

We got enough speed?


The Combine says we got two of the fastest in the league.



This thread has a lot of classic NFL games to download, including the 3 Raiders Super Bowls, but there's no telling how long these links will last so get on it if you want it.

Fire sale


If Al doesn't make any moves before the deadline, he's just asking for more games like the one against the Niners.


The Coaching Situation

Coaching: The 49ers did a better job of preventing the kind of backbreaking plays that change the complexion of a close game. The Raiders offense lacked imagination, spark and consistency. Two...

NFL Labor Battle


Just thought I would throw this up for anybody who might not have seen it. Kind of disturbing really.

The Curse of Northern California


So it's not just the Raiders and Niners in NorCal who got the problems. Our former guy, Culpepper, can't seem to get it together even in the UFL, even with Dennis Green as a coach. Sorry Mountain Lions fans, but Saturday's game against Florida could be even uglier.

On the Eating of Crow


A lot of us are quick to label players a bust. In the case of JaMarcus, it was unanimous league-wide. However players like McFadden and Bey have also received this title prematurely. Granted they got off to a rough start, but in light of recent events, at the least they have earned themselves an appeal, I believe, from that label. I'm guilty of this myself, thus I present to all you (and myself), this link, because at least if you find yourself eating crow, it needn't be simply taking a bite out of feathers and all. There are ways of making it more palatable.


Raiders Draft History

No, not this year's. We've discussed it to death, haven't we? I was looking over the last several years, and most of these players are at least still playing for the Raiders (although that 2002...
