  • A day in the life of a Raider fan

    As we pulled into Coliseum parkway, a man was standing on the street selling t-shirts with the logo "Ugly *****" printed on the front. The many fans making they're way to the field in Raiders clothing. I remember saying to the driver, "Whatever you do.. Do not cut anyone off!". After paying for parking we stood in line by the dangerous overpass to get into the main parking area by way of a cut up fence. The air around the stadium was smoggy and the sky a reddish orange type color.

    Trash and mud littered the ground as we came closer to the stadium. Trailers were lined up like a drive in movie. By the looks of the overturned grills and empty beer bottles, we knew the game had started. So we waited walked around trying to fine the shortest entrance line. I smirked as the raider faithful of all ages taunted anyone not wearing silver in black. I, in fact, had on silver in black and I purchased a five dollar t-shirt commemorating the 40th season. As we moved slowly the body check line, my hand gripped tighter on my wallet and phone. The smell of a beer grew closer and when I looked for the source, a short pudgy hispanic man with a a painted face stood there with his mug. He had on full football gear with the raiders jersey that simply read "Senor". His outfit was topped off with a sombrero.

    As we entered, I had the opportunity of seeing the first drunk guy arrested and thrown out. There was so much police there, you would think the coliseum had their own precinct. So we made our way down to our section more taunts came for the San Diego fans. Finding our seats was easier than I thought. We were seated right behind the black hole, which was cool as ****! I enjoyed the hardly fought game and cheering for the home team. I enjoyed the smell of beer and BBQ sauce that was apparent around the stadium. I also enjoyed watching a scuffle between one gentleman that had called Jamarcus Russell a mayate and another gentlemen who knew what that meant.

    It was rather nice to be in a place where fishermen and drug dealers can find sense of camaraderie even for those 3-4 hours. It was nice seeing the raiders making plays and feeling the rumbling of the floor from the loud crowd. I guess it was rather nice to be a Raider fan for a day.



    Don't get it twisted.

    I went out to Oakland for the Steelers game a few years back. We were expecting to get some **** from their fans after hearing all the horror stories about the place. I was shocked to find that no one really said anything to us other than the normal trash talk you would hear at any game.

    I've been treated worse at games in Cleveland and Cincy.

      Cleveland fans taunt everyone. I have seats in the dawg pound and it doesn't matter who we play the ass hole chant gets started anytime anyone in a different jersey comes through.

      I remember in 2007 when we played cinci in the 51-45 game (or whatever it was) at the end of the game some browns fan was going towards the bar in the dawg pound and saw a kid who looked about 8 years old in a bengals jersey with his dad in a bengals jersey, the guy looked at the kid and goes "GUESS WHAT KID, DADDYS A ******!" and ran away.

      Browns fans have nothing better to do cause our team sucks.

        For their reputation, I found most of the people I sat near to be kind of cool. I used to live in LA and I was a Chiefs fan so it wasn't the best environment but I went to a game once and no one said anything offensive, just taunting and joking but light-hearted kind of way. It is definitely a cool place to watch a game and I imagine it's even better if you're a Raiders fan. They're fanatical, kind of like Chiefs fans. It's a blast.

          The hoods (who, for the most part, can't afford to go to the games anyways) are the ones who give Raider fans a bad rep.

            I gotta admit, the razor wire fences around houses was pretty intimidating.

                  The Hispanics were sitting behind me and there was a group of black people in front of me. I was screwed.

                    LOL! Yeah, it isn't a very nice thing to be calling someone, especially in front of people that know what you're saying.
