Raiders Suck!!

The 49ers play an exhibition game against the Raiders Saturday, and yesterday I paid the Raiders the ultimate disrespect by deeming them too insignificant to waste any words describing their woefulness or even summoning any concern that they were on the 49er schedule. Today, I feel a little more feisty.

As Rob pointed out in yesterday’s comment section, they suck. Not only do they suck, but they are a ridiculous organization of epic proportions. If Oakland had any character, it would run these bums out of town. But if it had any character, it would never have allowed these traitorous scumbags back into town in the first place.

Cleveland gets a lot of ridicule in the football spheres of America, but can anyone imagine that city or its fans being spineless enough to let Art Modell bring his team back into the city he so cowardly betrayed? Not on your pea-pickin’ life. That’s precisely why Oakland deserves the piece of shit franchise it now has.

That this franchise has even a single “fan” left on planet earth would be a mystery to me if it were not for my belief that the earth is overrun with a whole lot of idiots. That is the only worth that the Raiders have — helping to identify these idiots. Selling them Raider jackets and tattoos so the rest of civilization can quickly recognize that a dangerous piece of cretinous flotsam is in the vicinity.

That a decrepit old man is running this organization is absolutely fitting, because the Oakland franchise is living almost exclusively on the fumes of its long ago past. In the last decade, it has rotted like an abandoned old barn. That the team occasionally wins games is a testimony to the talent of NFL players of any kind and has nothing to do with any cognitive processes occurring in the bats flying around in the rafters of team management.

Al Davis WAS a sharp cookie once. He had a team that was fun to root for. But plain old greed, and a healthy dose of arrogance, poisoned his soul and rewired his brain. He turned into Captain Crusader, bent only on his own coronation, and began the long and insulting urination on his own fan base, treating the rabid Oakland rooters like they were dime a dozen schmoes.

This colossal embodiment of vanity and pride rubbed it in the Oakland faces but good, taking his team to the hated Los Angeles market, where the lazy fans yawned in his face. Why did Oakland take this jerk back? A mystery. Since his return to the Bay Area, this burnt out relic has flopped and floundered his way into the laughingstock of the league.

The only thing that keeps the Raiders alive is their logo — it appeals to the disenfranchised wannabe outlaws running around randomly harming anything in their vicinity. You think those painted up clowns in the Black Hole bear any resemblance to the true fans that sat there thirty years ago? No effing way. These current drunken half-wits weren’t even born when the Raiders were The Raiders. They are clueless punks. The only black hole in Oakland is the one where investors’ dough gets tossed for the likes of Javon Walker.

The Oakland Raiders will never recover as long as Davis is running the show. It is a cursed franchise. The black outs that routinely speak loudly for the city’s disinterest will continue. The product on the field has not won more than five games for seven consecutive seasons — an all time NFL record for uselessness.

Many people think the Raiders will be a competitive team this year and break through that five win barrier. The irony is that if they do, it will be entirely due to the organization’s repudiation of Davis, which manifested itself when JaMarcus Russell was dumped and Jason Campbell was brought in to replace him. It continued when the team drafted Rolando McClain in round one, instead of some speed burner joke.

The Bay Area would love to see the Raiders become relevant again. Then it would actually mean something to say “Screw the Raiders! You suck!” As it is, who needs to scream it? It’s just a fact. Raiders suck. What’s for dinner?

    Thanks, Tony. Glad you enjoy it here. Don’t miss my Monday post which will be entitled: Raiders Still Suck!

    skeebs ! i think this is my favorite thing you’ve done so far !
    here’s my best line …

    “the only worth that the Raiders have — helping to identify these idiots. Selling them Raider jackets and tattoos so the rest of civilization can quickly recognize that a dangerous piece of cretinous flotsam is in the vicinity”

    raiders suck !

    Tony- Welcome aboard!

  6. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Raiders were always my 2nd favorite team. I was living in LA and the Niners were not a good team. The Raiders gave me a Bay Area team to root for.
    Then Al moved the team to LA. I loved it. I was sitting in a Shakey’s Pizza in East LA when in walks a bus load of Raiders. Tom Flores, Marcus Allen, Gene Upshaw, Todd Christensen, Jim Plunkett, etc… I talked to them all.
    Then Al Starts suing the NFL. Then he moves back to Oakland. I started to hate him and his team.
    Until Al dies or sells or just goes away I’ll hate the Raiders. When he is gone they’ll be my 2nd favorite team again. Oh boy, I’m going to take some shit for this post.
    I just noticed, Al is LA spelled backwards!

  7. robNo Gravatar says:

    they say people are full of hot air …
    well, when you root for the niners it comes out of one place and the raiders shit comes out the other orifice !

    pretty much like the franchise itself !

  8. delmardennisNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs, this is by far your best thread post ever. And you’ve had some very good ones before, but you outdid yourself today. Excellent piece through and through. I guess if I had to nitpick, it would be your characterization of their fans as “current drunken half-wits.” Why are you being so mean to Berger this morning? 😀

    Skeebs- I posted one of the paragraphs above on the Gate. You are currently up 7-0 on the comment section. You should go give your address.

    NoFear will delete it, Reno!

  12. mr_zeroNo Gravatar says:

    Hey, why didn’t you guys tell me you were all over here?

    Looks like this blog needs someone with a brain to liven it up.

  13. mr_zeroNo Gravatar says:

    I have to tell you guys this is pretty funny. How do I get my avatar up?

  14. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Zero, follow the “Get Yourself an Avatar” instructions in the top rightmost column above.

  15. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I like the one that was automatically generated for you, though. You should keep it.

  16. mr_zeroNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks, Hey I was reading your post from yesterday why does McCloughan worry you in Seattle?

    He doesn’t worry me one bit, as a matter of fact this last draft might turn out to be the best one they’ve had in years and I think it’s because he was out of it.

    Even though I’m not thrilled about them giving up a pick to move up one spot to get Davis and taking Mays when they could have used a CB or OLB/DE, it’s still a lot better than anything they ever did with Nolan top to bottom.

    Williams should be alright when he recovers from that toe injury and Dixon might be their best pick of the draft if you consider they took him in the 6th round.

  17. mr_zeroNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah it is kind of fitting isn’t it?

  18. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I didn’t say McCloughan worried me, per se, I said he worried me more than Carroll worries me. Basically, a shot at Carroll. Neither one of them worries me.

  19. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Gee, NoFear. What a buzzkill you are.

    Must suck to go through like with no sense of humor.

  20. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Looking for my coordinates??? You have a hard enough time finding your way to the basement.

    Need some tinfoil for your cosmic ray deflector hat, skippy?

  21. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear- If Alex has a good year you are just going to have to be miserable! You could be the #1 Smith hater.
    And here comes the denial with the explanation of you are just pointing out whatever you point out.

  22. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Randy in Santa Rosa says the game tonight can be viewed online and live at Have to wait till 6pm to verify.
    You don’t have to worry, Berg. Reno isn’t blacked out.

  23. delmardennisNo Gravatar says:

    Not to worry, he’ll black himself out on $2.99 Oak Leaf Merlot.

  24. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I’ll have it on at 6! I can’t wait to see how many passes Alex overthrows.

  25. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    No drinking this week-end. I’m going blotto next week. I already have the 5th of Beam! I’m drinking the ephedra plant in the back yard this week. They call it squaw tea or Mormon tea. I pulled that pesky plant out twice and it just keeps growing back healthier each time. It grows wild everywhere around here. Now I read it is good for tea. I’ll let you know tomorrow, providing I’m still alive!

  26. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Smith completed 60% of his passes last year. Our WRs must be phenomenal acrobats. They were probably all short little passes, the ones he can’t throw.

  27. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Maybe we need taller receivers? NoFear should be telling us about us soon! Maybe he can tell us which QB he would start. He had that question a couple of days ago. What say you Mr NoFear?

  28. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I think we should have designed plays where two guys go out, one short & one deep, so when Alex overthrows the short guy it will go right to the deep guy.

  29. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Great thinking, get a letter out to Sing, CC NoFear!

  30. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear- How you doin’.

    You are confused now aren’t you? I have no idea of what you are talking about in your third paragraph. Confusing the issue to make yourself feel good? Actually, I’m going to assume that was an attempt at humor. If it was don’t quit your day job, or try playing twister, you do that well on the blog. If those are serious questions I’ll reply to them. Who loves you baby?

  31. robNo Gravatar says:

    nofear says the only WR who needs to be much taller is crabtree because he’s the only one who wasn’t added to the team while nolan was there ! morgan could just use some taller shoes and he’ll be ok … because nolan was still HC but scott was GM that year !!!


  32. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear- Come back, I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. We all love you my friend!

  33. delmardennisNo Gravatar says:

    The goddamn Gate just deleted my comment from earlier where I posted Skeeber’s link to watch the game live online. Sgt. Schultz the other day, now this. They piss off the horse any more, and they’ll never need fertilizer again.

  34. delmardennisNo Gravatar says:

    According to Maiocco, the plan is to have Alex air it out tonight. In Jimmy Raye’s offense, does that mean we’ll only run it up the gut 80% of the time tonight?

  35. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    What the hell is going on with that site? That is really weird Delmar. Why would the Chron or anybody else not want people to be able to watch the game? Bizarre.

  36. robNo Gravatar says:

    i saw your link get deleted ! guest has one that’s still up i think ! maybe his lasted longer because it didn’t get posted as a direct link and they didn’t notice it yet !

    oh , maybe we’ll throw it more if we’re in 3rd and EIGHT or longer after two runs up the gut !
    if it’s just 3rd and SEVEN or less , we’ll still just run it tho !

  37. ROBNo Gravatar says:

    i was going to say the same thing ! the mods at the chron can be pretty ‘stoopid’ sometimes !

  38. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t even go to that site every day anymore. They are getting ridiculous.

  39. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s another weird one. If you hover over the avatars of DirtDiver, Spitblood, and FlyingV, they all say “This profile is under review.” Yet Dirt & Spit are banned and V not only still posts, but can make posts exceeding the 1000 char limit. That can’t happen unless V has direct access to the site’s code or has some sort of admin privileges.

  40. ROBNo Gravatar says:

    did one of you guys just call my number ? i was ummm otherwise engaged … if you get my drift !

  41. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    My 4 stars of the game go to Alex Smith, Phillip Adams, Patrick Willis ad Anthony Dixon.

  42. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Dixon, Byham, and Adams all look like keepers. Very nice haul at the end of the draft. Gonna be some tough cuts. Seattle will be poised to grab whoever we cut, too.

  43. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I gotta take LaBoy over Briggs. Briggs is PS eligible, but Seattle is probably going to snatch him. Then LaBoy will get hurt & everyone will scream we should have kept Briggs.

  44. delmardennisNo Gravatar says:

    I’m already stretching my vocal cords.

  45. delmardennisNo Gravatar says:

    Seriously, I see no reason why we couldn’t keep both on the active roster. Thinking we go one less on the actual D-Line. We have to keep Adams now. That was pretty damn impressive. Hell, his play has been very eye-catching prior to last night’s performance. Add Adams to the list of this years draft coups.

  46. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Funny game. Everyone was hyped about LeRoy Vann returning punts, and up pops the guy nobody talked about who sticks up his hand to volunteer this past week and steals the show.

  47. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Adams went 5-4-3-2-1 instead!
