You got to see this beauty in the stands.
Let's face it, this team is in dire straits. It has officially classified itself in the "Lemon" category.
I mean how much more is Raider Nation willing to stand for? It's one thing to be beaten, but another thing to be embarrassed and not even be able, willing or not, to compete.
The years when you would hear about some rag tag reject from another team signing on and playing for the Raiders and how he then prospered in the silver and black—those years are long gone. The years when the Raiders took the field hungover on Sunday morning, but still performed at pro bowl level, are gone.
This team of rag tag pretenders is nothing more than a collection of players forced to play for this sorry franchise. Nobody believes, except maybe the rookies, that things can get better. They can, but not much. Not this year.
Raider Nation is blind at times, and right about now I am guessing, not so much. I can no longer support a team that will not support me by playing its heart out with fire and passion. The 11 on either side of the ball at any given moment resemble a group of adults at a Catholic Church Sunday Mass. Quiet, boring, and tired.
Nothing will change until Al Davis dies. Like it or not. I said it. He is not good for the team anymore and has not been for a decade or longer.
