The Raider Nation is on the hot seat in 2010. The seats have been empty for too long, and the blackouts are driving the locals crazy.
The Raiders feed off of the energy from the fans, and it was obvious if you watched the opener in 2009.
The Raider Nation is one of the most loyal fan-bases, but the attendance doesn't show it. While the Browns and Bills haven't been very good lately, their fan-base is there every week. The Raider Nation needs to come out and support their team.
One fan even came out and said I was on the hot seat, then again he also wanted to trade Nnamdi Asomugha and Richard Seymour this offseason.
Here are a couple responses.
Jarett G Gates says:
My name is Jarett and I live in North Carolina.
I have lived a lot of places in my life, and everywhere I go there are a lot of Raider Fans, but there are even more "Haters."
A funny thing has happened though and I first noticed it in my office.
People do not hate like they used to. This is making me sick and it needs to stop!
My workmates actually feel sorry for me as a Raider fan. Not to mention, Raider Fans seem to have faded into the background.
Since our team appears to be making all the right moves this offseason, I say that the Raider Fans are on the Hot Seat!
Raider Fans need to get out and show their support more than ever!
If I lived in the Bay area, I would not miss a game.
By the way, I was born in Garden Grove, which may explain my loyalty.
I can't wait for the Autumn wind to blow again.

Robert Rodriguez says:
Elias, Your DUMB ASS is on the line. For quite some time now you have constantly supported J.R. You once told me I would look like a retard if he made it.
Well, how does it feel for you to be the retard? Ha, ha...I guess you can give that jersey to your favorite charity or simply use it for toilet paper. With the release of this sorry lump of DUNG, the prayers of the Raider Nation have finally been answered. Thank You God.
