Sorry that it's been over a month since our last podcast, our longest gap ever in over 10 years.....but Greg has been dealing with some personal issues that had to take precedent. He'll be ready to do a show soon, but now my wife and I are leaving on a 3-week trip first thing tomorrow morning (Wed. Feb. 24th), and won't be back in the country until March 15th. As soon as we return, Greg and I will get together and plan a show covering all the important Raiders happenings so far this off-season.

In the mean time, you can post your thoughts here on the forum, leave toll-free (in the USA) voicemail messages on the "Boneline" (1-800-620-7181) and I'll go through the messages when I get back from the trip....and use the best ones on our next show.

Also, feel free to post your thoughts here on our forum. Let's get some discussions going. This forum has been dead lately. I guess everyone is doing Facebook and Twitter instead.  ??

I'd like to see some discussion going on the forums again. Personally, I'm not a fan of Facebook (too much drama) and I don't really participate on Twitter.

I'm glad that the forum section is still up and running and that Randy keeps up with all the Raider related news.

On another note, I got a Carr jersey for Christmas and love it!

Go Raiders!

Thanks Kev. Congrats on the Carr jersey!

Segment #1: Chargers at Raiders Postgame - Was that the last ever Raiders game in Oakland?

The Raiders beat the Chargers in a close hard fought game that went right down to the wire. It was the last home game for Charles Woodson, with one more game in Kansas City before he retires.

We actually had a podcast all recorded and ready to release yesterday, but decided to throw it in the garbage since it had a lot of material on the stadium issue that will soon be outdated when the outcome of the owners meeting is released possibly today. As soon as we have news of the latest happenings, we'll put together a show.

We won't have a whole lot on the Chiefs game....not a real "postgame", but more of a season wrap-up and stadium news show.

In the mean time, check out news links that I'm updating daily. There were a bunch of new articles on the stadium issue that came out today, and we have all the links there.

Also, feel free to post your thoughts here on our forum. Let's get some discussions going. This forum has been dead lately. I guess everyone is doing Facebook and Twitter instead.  ???

http://www.raidernationpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=1361.0

Was great seeing you guys again at the Packers game, Im finally home from the honeymoon and need another holiday to recover from it!

Raider Argo!

Thanks Argo.....loved meeting you and your wife at those two games in Oakland last season. I guess we'll be back with the Bad Boyz of BBQ next season too!
