We all know how important money is, but Richard Seymour and Michael Huff took a pay cut and this shows us that many Oakland Raiders are committed to the team.

It is encouraging to hear about the fact that Seymour and Huff made those decisions to help the Oakland Raiders comply with the rules on cap.

Their decision sends out a positive message to Raider Nation: These guys love their team, and they want to be a part of the great transition that is taking place in preparation for the 2012 season.

Last season was wretched with challenges, however, with the type of commitment demonstrated by Seymour and Huff, the Raider Nation can expect great things in 2012.

The players' passion for building a powerful team and sticking together until the task is complete is respectable.

The recent hire of Lamonte Winston is another positive move for the Oakland Raiders.

So much is being transformed in the franchise that Raider Nation should be uplifted and infected with a powerful winning spirit flowing out of the challenges of 2011.

It's a new day, it's a new structure, and the best is yet to come.

Go Raiders!
