The Oakland Raiders Fan Base Has To Be the Most Passionate Group in B/R History

Ryan MichaelSenior Writer IIIFebruary 18, 2009

You Raiders fans are absolutely crazy you know that? No matter what is going on in Oakland and no matter how bad things get, you flood Bleacher Report with a plethora of silver and black insanity.

Every day, I go to see what articles have gathered the most views, and I'm almost guaranteed to see two to three Raiders articles ranked right there at the top.

Does it matter that the Raiders haven't had a winning season in six years?

Hell no. It doesn't seem to have any bearing on the passion that you Raiders fans personify.

You are the only group that could get the people to read more about JaMarcus Russell than Peyton Manning and Tom Brady combined.

The Raider Nation have managed to create an interest in the future of Kirk Morrison for God's sake!

I have to applaud you, Raiders fans, because you are every bit as crazy as your representation implies.

I can only imagine how popular the Oakland Raiders' section will become when the 2009 season begins.

I have a feeling that we are going to see a vast amount of improvement out of this football team, and I know that you Raiders fans will be right on the spot to remind all of us about it.

I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that the Raider Nation is easily the most passionate group here on Bleacher Report. You all deserve a lot of credit because it is your spirit that will always give the Raiders a fighting chance.
