Raiders and NFL Talk / Re: NFL Draft
« Last post by Raider G on May 03, 2014, 11:40:07 AM »
The Oakland Raiders need to Draft Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (from Clemson) with the number 5 pick. Don't make a trade with the 49ers so they can get the number 5 pick!!!I can't state this ENOUGH!!! Sammy Watkins will be the NEXT Tim Brown...Lets Do IT!! Don't trade the #5 pick away!!

A long time ago in a Draft far, far away we passed up Calvin Johnson for JaMarcus Russell. We can't make that same mistake again. I agree. Sammy Watkins is the one to get. We have our QB, but he needs a star receiver to throw to. I feel like Watkins is that guy.

I believe that Al Davis was Guaranteed sellouts when he decided to move to Los Angeles .As you can see on old film footage there were about 30,000 EMPTY seats at The Los Angeles memorial Coliseum on game days .He was Also promised by Los Angeles officials that they would have Luxury Suites at the Coliseum built.This NEVER Happened.I am Told that The City Officials in Oakland promised and built what Raiders fans call MT Davis(Luxury seats/boxes),to bring the Raiders back to Oakland .I believe the citizens of Oakland paid for this.Can someone please tell me how much of the taxpayers money paid for MT Davis and how much of Al's money/private money went into financing MT Davis and the Oakland Coliseum?

I don't know how much it cost.

I know they still have 100m to pay off of Mt Davis.

I've also heard (via twitter from someone who knows a Coliseum Maitenance worker) *take info with grain of salt* but Mt Davis has been deemed unsafe to use because of cracks in the beam.

So whilst the media beats up that Raiders has an attendance issue and has to utilise tarps.. the real reason Mt Davis has been closed off is it's a liability waiting to crumble. (It kind of makes perfect sense because the A's don't even open up Mt Davis for the ALDS)

Actually don't quote me on that last bit.

I just tried searching for the tweet & unfortunately no such luck.

But sounded legit reasoning why we supposedly have an attendance issue.

TOPICS:

Segment #1: "Announcement: Raider Nation Party in London"

Friday night, September 26th, two days prior to the Raiders' game in London this September, there will be a party at London's #1 Sports bar. It runs from 7pm until 4am, and Raider Greg gives you all the details. Check www.silverandblackuk.com

Segment #2: “How has the Raiders' defensive backfield improved?"

Inspired by an article in "Just Blog Baby", Raider Greg goes over some defensive stats and concludes that our defensive backfield has greatly improved.

Segment #3: “Do we want the Raiders on HBO's Hard Knocks?"

The Raiders are one of a few teams who could be forced by the NFL to do HBO's Hard Knocks program. Several teams have apparently volunteered to be featured, but could the NFL force a team who doesn't want to do the show even though they have volunteers?

Segment #4: News and lies in the media as the draft approaches

This year's draft being two weeks later than usual is causing pre-draft news to seem never-ending. The draft can't get here any too soon.

I was fortunate to have Met Dan Pastorini...Dan told me that he was playing Pretty Good until he Got Hurt(against the Chiefs in Oakland).Some Raiders fans were Bitter that Al traded Ken Stabler to Houston. Stabler helped the Raiders Win their First Super Bowl. Alot Of Raider fans were upset with the trade and Never Embraced Pastorini. When Dan got hurt Alot of Raider fans Cheered-that was Low Class ! That Hurt Dan Alot. Plunkett came into the game and the Crowd Cheered. .Plunkett won games and Eventually The Raiders won the Super Bowl against the Eagles. There is a really Good Book on Jim Plunkett.-I checked it out from the library. Al got to a point where he didn't like Pastorini and Al treated Dan Not kindly and Pastorini was toast as far as Al was concerned(after the injury)Dan Felt that Al was Treating him badly during that time .I asked Dan about his Raider days and I could tell he wasn;t happy with Al Davis and the way some Raider fans treated him when he got injured .I asked him if he wore his Super Bowl ring and Dan said when he Got Injured it was Plunkett's team and that he Never wears that ring.
     Bobby Hebert was a qb with the Oakland invaders...and Raymond Chester and some Raiders were on the Invaders team .Bobby is on WWL radio in New Orleans(sportstalk 870 am).I listen to his shows when I can pick it up. Bobby mentioned that Fred Biletnikoff was the qb coach for the Invaders and when Bobby walked into the position room the room was filled with Fred's cigarette smoke and cig smoke from another position coach. Bobby also mentioned that when he played for the Saints that the fans sitting Directly behind their bench would yell all kind of profanities and throw stuff at them...Even old white hair grandmothers-flippin' them off and talking vile stuff. .even kids!...he said he Never experienced anything like this except the Oakland Coliseum...he was laughing about it...
