Raider Haters your Welcome
Number 10: This Guy, Charger Tom
So I Googled Raider Hater and Guess who pops up... This Guy,Charger Tom.Pretty impressive even for a Raider Hater.
Obviously he's a Charger Fan, but you gotta give it to him for his absolute dedication. I posted a link to his page at the bottom, take a look if your up for a laugh.
Most of his page has a bunch of out of date stuff from last season, but he takes Raiders Bashing to a whole new level.
A lot of Raider Pics with dumb captions, with Jamarcus Russell and Al Davis taking the most heat.
Until you get to the Raider Nation section with a bunch of pittiful pics of the fans. I gotta admit some of the pics are pretty embarrassing.
The funniest part about the page though has got to be the Mouse cursor. As you scroll along, the cursor has "Raiders Suck" following along. This guy obviously has a lot of time on his hands.
Here's the link http://www.chargertom.com/RaiderHaters.html
Number 9: Jamarcus Russell

I know... I know, your asking how does JRuss qualify as a Raider Hater. Well let me try to explain.
First off if you were an Oakland Raider fan during the Jamarcus Era, you would probably believe JRuss hates the Raiders just based on his play. This Guy tortured Raiders fans every Sunday. So much potential so little effort.
Secondly JRuss is on this list more so for Potential than anything. I strongly believe Mr. Russell will be Blaming the Oakland Raiders for all of his many problems in the future.
You know, "I went to a bad team", "I couldn't succeed in such a dysfunctional franchise", " Al Davis is a crackpot" all the same excuses other former Raiders have used.
This guy is looking for a reason for his Failure, and believe me the Oakland Raiders will be one of his biggest targets, just give him some time.
Oh by the way I choose this Pic becasue of How Fat JRuss looks. Him and Eli look like the Number 10 on Eli's jersey. LoL
Number 8: Chuck
The list of Steelers who qualify as Raider Haters goes on and on. But due to the outlandish actions of Coach Knoll I give him the nod.
"Too Rough for the Steelers... What a Joke" Phil Villapiano. I love this guy.
Chuck Knoll threaten to sue the '76 Oakland Raiders due to brutality on the Football Field. That's right when the Steelers couldn't steal or luck into a win against the Raiders, they tried to Sue.
You gotta truly have no respect and utter Hate for a team to try to sue them.
Chuck Cracks my list, because he Hated to Lose to the Raiders so much, he threaten a Lawsuit.
Number 7: Mike Shanahan

Fired up! that's what Mike Shanahan's teams are when they play the Oakland Raiders.
Mike Shanahan had a brief stint with the then Los Angeles Raiders in '88-89 finishing with a record of 8-12.
According to sources, Shanahan's tenure with the Raiders did not go over to well, which led to Shanahan's firing under some harsh conditions. Shanahan claims he is owed over $200,000 from the Raiders and owner Al Davis.
Shananhan bounced across the bay to Frisco, before landing a Head Coaching spot with Denver where he was a former coordinator.
While at Denver Shanahan was like an Old Girlfriend you dumped, who suddenly got really Hot and was really Pissed. 21-7 record against the Raiders during Shanahan's tenure speaks for itself.
Shanahan's two Super Bowls might have eased his Hatred, but That Big Win in Denver last year which led to Shanahans eventual firing, probably has him Hating the Raiders more then Ever.
Hey he gave JRuss a tryout, just for spite.
Number 6: DeAngelo Hall

Ahhh the Legend of DeAngelo Hall.
We all remember the Game against the Broncos, where the undersized and unknown Eddie Royal Torched this man on Monday Night. Even with his recent 4 pick day against Cutler, that's what I remember. ( Funny Jay was the one Throwing the Ball that Night, Ironic)
This Man got away with Robbery of the Al Davis, getting paid over 8 Million for only 8 eight games, before getting the Randy Moss treatment.
Now all this Guy does is trash talk the Raiders. Keep in Mind he is now playing in Washington!... for Daniel Snyder! All I can do is laugh, here's a few of his Quotables...
Concerning McNabb's possible trade to Oakland: "He doesn't want to go to Oakland... Tell him that", "If you tell him anything tell him I said that".
On Oakland's Bad Rep: "Randy [Moss] told me the horror stories, Warren [Sapp] told me the horror stories, and you know, I thought maybe I could go in there and try to change things around and try to put my work ethic out there and get guys to follow".
Really two good Sources to pull from Right... and your work ethic, HaHa. That's the Problem with most Raider Haters, they blame their lack of work ethic on the Organization. Real Classy DHall, Keep the Hate alive.
Number 5: Tom Jackson

The Ultimate Denver Bronco Lover, Mr. Tommy Jackson. I actually like most of this guys comments, but when Talking the Raiders, He just can't get over His Raider Hate.
The thing that irks me most about TJ, is his Backhanded Comments and remarks about the Raiders Organization. Instead of just coming out with his Criticism, he often hides it with Sarcasm, and Humor.
The Nit Picking of the Oakland Raiders also goes way too far. Over that Past few seasons the Whole C'Mon Man segment could have been called C'Mon Oakland.
TJ along with CC and those other Cronies, constantly Picked on Oakland Games. Detroit went 0-16 for a Season! 0-16 yet you still bash the Raiders?
Although My favorite TJ moment came in Last Years Draft. I know you guys were watching... "With the Eight Pick the Oakland Raiders select Rolando McClain" Cough...Cough, Uhhhhh, something to say TJ?
Watching Tom Jackson sit there and have to admit the Oakland Raiders made a great selection was Hilarious. You could see he was all Ready to Jump all over the Raiders about their selection, Instead he swallowed his pride and realized its gonna be a long while before his Broncos are back on Top, HaHa.
Number 4: Chris Carter

This Former Druggie is a total Front Runner, If your team is good Hey! he loves you, if your team struggles then your the Worse Team Ever in the NFL.
CC is by far one of the most Critical Analyst of All Time. Now usually this would be a Good Thing. The Problem is, He doesn't have any F'n Idea what he is talking about.
Hey I understand the Comments he made about DHB may and well be true, But... You Don't Show that type of Blatant Disrespect on National Television unless you really have some Hatred in your Heart. How bout being a Professional and Mentoring a Young Rookie, instead of Criticising Him.
CC's Laughing during the DHB interview was Low. This guy is a Clown, who is Pissed because he didn't win a Ring.
He continually defends Randy Moss and other Disrespectful Players, and always seems to pull they Race Card as an Excuse.
CC epitomizes a Hater, and the Oakland Raiders have been one of his most Hated. He must be trying to get us back for His Buddy Randy Moss, C'mon Man!
Number 3: Warren Sapp

The Big Mouth of the South, What can be said about Warren Sapp, This dude has a Vendetta against Al Davis and The Oakland Raiders.
How is this guy still employed? You have a So called analyst who is So biased against one team, he literally utilizes every opportunity to Bash them on Air.
We all heard his statements about Changing Gameplans and the Al Davis Dictatorship, which may be true or Not.
But Mr. Sapp you forget your creditability is Garbage. Sapp is the same guy caught on Punk'ed (MTV) saying his time with the Oakland Raiders was all about CTC= Collecting the Check.
Was He ever a Leader? No, Hell NO! Just another wannabe commentator who likes getting a Rise by Trash Talking an Organization he thinks he was once a part of.
Warren Sapp is Irrelevant, does anyone respect what he says? He is riding the Oakland Hater Bandwagon for all its worth.
Guess What? The Wagon is Full and it just Broke Down after the Chiefs Game.
Sapp is on air for Two Reasons...Cuz Hes Loud and Fat.
Number 2: Marty Schottenheimer

I actually have alot of Respect for this guy. I think he is a Great Coach, and was actually hoping he would coach the Raiders one day.
But Pumping the Brakes, I Realized...
Marty Is not only a Raider Hater Member, He is the Mother F'n President!
Ol' Marty may have very well Created Raider Hate, he Hated the Raider Organization and Al Davis for their Arrogance, Defiance, and Attitude. All the Things we love about our team.
Marty created Raider Week. He demanded a 110% of his Team, but on Raider Week you better bring 150%. Losing to the Raiders was Totally out of the Question to Marty, and his Record with both the Chargers and Chiefs against the Raiders shows it.
Most coaches asked their players to dislike standard Rivals, but Marty took it to new levels. He wanted to destroy the Raiders. And in tough games, he came up with a Philosphy of Letting the Raiders Beat themselves.
Why is Marty #2 on my List? Because he hasn't coached in Three Years, yet his quotes and comments still fire up Raider players and Fans alike. Because brought Raider Hatred to Light.
Number 10: The NFL Officials

There not always in sight, but there always watching. NFL Officials, Referees, Whistle Blowers, Zebras, Fun Police, whatever you want to call them are Probably the Worst Enemy of the Oakland Raiders.
Mention our biggest rivals; Steelers, Chiefs, Broncos, Chargers... Referees, and its absolutely true. How do you explain our top ten listing of most penalized teams. It seems like an annual occurrence.
Whats funny to me is how we can change entire coaching staffs, players, hell even cities, yet remain one of the most Penalized Teams of All Time! Are we Really that UnDisciplined?
Did You Know: the 1976 Oakland Raiders were the most penalized team in the league that year? yet still managed to win a Super Bowl.
Can you say Adversity. Call me a Crackpot, call me a Conspiracy Theorist, Call me Crazy, But the bottom line is the Oakland Raiders have been on the Wrong end of some of the worst calls in NFL History.
My Heart still lies in that Snowy Field in Foxboro. I won't give you the Run Down of those Mistaken Calls, believe me there are Too Many to call a Coincidence.
What I will say is these BS Calls have got to Stop, there has got to be a better way to call a Football game. The Raiders are not the only team getting Shafted, but I think we hold the Crown.
Tell Me What You Think

Who did I miss, who deserves a Higher Ranking, Do you Love the Hate? Did Khalif Barnes Really score a Touchdown? LoL
Maybe this list has a Negative Vibe,
but I just want those Raider Haters out there to Know That our Day has Finally Arrived.
It's Time for PayBack.
