As many know the rivalry between Raider and Charger fans is by far one of, if not the most intense in football. You would think that both being California teams we could learn to support one another.. but that couldn't be farther from reality. If you have been to a game @ the Q (jack murphy) than you know of what the hell I speak.. as it is near a full scale riot at times.. people have been hospitilized on both sides, Charger fans have been stabbed, jumped had bottles thrown at them and likewise in retallition Raider fans have been viciously attacked as well.
The Raiders as a team I want to see lose for a variety of reasons but in actuality my quest to see them get demolished by every team in NFL isn't really fueled by the team players itself. With the new addition of Randy Moss I have one more reason to valiantly root against the nation besides them having a history of being dirty players.
If you are from California you have probably seen it.. gangsters and low lifes of all races wearing the silver and black. A large population of the nation aren't really too interested in football or even seeing the Raiders win games, it's the gangster style and colors that attract large numbers of Southern California's real and wannabee thugs to be apart of the raider nation.
Last year sitting in traffic amongst Dub C look alikes the new slogan had changed I had seen.. previously "A commitment to excellnce" or something similair had changed to PERMANANT decals that read "fuck the game win the fight", as Raider fans stuck thier heads out the window with skeleton masks on trying to intimidate everyone throwing up @ #1 with thier hands.. I could not take it.. I yelled out the window at the guys "is that #1 for how many games you guys won this season?".. pretty hillarious and perfectly timed, it took some of the steam out of thier pregame celebration for sure.
A friend of mine who donates time to disabled veterans was @ the game last year sitting with a veteran who was paralyzed in the war..a group of Raider fans walk by and said "a raider fan must have put him in that wheelchair last year". Be proud Nation.
I have many Raider fan friends.. some real football raider fans who have been fans thier whole life and some that pretty much just like wearing the jersey because it's gangsta. I know real raider fans who are respectfully competitive and are embarassed by the actions of the nation and rightfully so, because the know a HUGE percentage of the nation are ghettofied idiots. Now, SD has no shortage of cholo charger fans and they start shit also, but alot of it is in retalliation for the Raiders thinking they can come and take over our stadium.. but the fact remains our fans are predominatly classy individuals who love football and love thier team.. most of the time it is 50% Nation and 50% Bolts, But things are changing dammit.. last year there were MORE Charger fans than Raider fans.
I am honest both of our teams do not have spectacular dynasty's lol, but the FRIENDLY yet INTENSE rivalry is damn fun... and I share that with some of the cooler Raider fans on this site including endochokedme, corenobody and urbloodonmyfist whom which I have a wager with. (accepting any other wagers at this time btw)
Just a little perspective for anyone who might wonder why the Raiders are so disliked from fans all over the world.. everything I said is 100% correct.
Have a good one
