Sometimes being a Raider fan really sucks...

If you don't follow the NFL, then just ignore this post. If you do follow the NFL and are a Raider's fan, then you know my pain. If you follow the NFL and are the fan of an opposing team, then you are laughing you butt off right now...

In short, the Raiders have been owned by a man named Al Davis for many, many years. Back in the day he was brilliant. In later years he was a joke. And then he died. I was hoping with his death that the mismanagement of the team would die with him. Unfortunately, that isn't happening...

*very sad face*

The quarterback got hurt. Rather than scrap the season and just try to get by and work towards a great season next year the Raiders decided it would be an awesome idea to trade 2 first round picks (worth lots) for an aging, out-of-shape quarterback (not worth lots).

I just don't get it. It's just not good business sense.

I guess the legacy of Al lives on...


  1. It could be worse. Let's say, hypothetically, that you were raised in the Detroit suburbs and all of your relatives were Lion fans. We (oops, they) even planned Thanksgiving dinner around the Lions game. Want to talk about really bad management?

    Ok, they aren't too bad so far this year, 5-1, I remember some years when it would take them 3-4 years to win 5 games, hypothetically that is.

  2. LOL... Lions fans have definitely suffered through the years. It's looking like a legit season though. Good luck!!
