....Like Pittsburgh Steelers....you think their fan base would stay strong if they moved to L.A.? lol....or how About the NYG or N.E. or any historic franchise that's NEVER moved...do you think those cities wouldn't care cause it's about the team not city? ....I don't expect a foreigner like you to understand what that means....your just a visitor when you come here not a citizen of the U.S. so you don't understand the value of loyalty to your country or city ....fans that watch on TV are not "Die Hard" the ones that go to every game are! And if you did ....you'd know it's more then just about the team....
Firstly, Steelers, Giants, and Patriots are not
"nations". Whereas the Raider Nation is truly a worldwide phenomena. The rest of these so-called "nations" are pale facsimiles. Fugazis.
I did not care for the move to L.A the first time, but that's how it played out. I was stoked that they moved back to Oakland where they belong. I hope, despite the utter incompetence of Oakland's city council, that a Oakland solution can be worked out.
Sharing a stadium with the Fortywhiners? I'd rather see them move to East Butthump Anywhereland.
From what I gather the only "true fan" is one who lives in Oakland, and can drive across town to the stadium.
If that was true, which it is not, then the Raider nation would be no nation at all. It would just like the Giants, Steelers, Pats, etc.
Since I live in a Fore-i-en country, and have only managed to attend one game, therefore I cannot be a "die-hard" fan? Bollocks to you, sir. Pretty easy to trash others because they don't incur the expense of traveling great distances to attend a game, when you have only, in comparison, have only to cross the street.
Due to your Homeland Insecurity rules some of us can no longer enter the Republic, however I see that terrorists, and Mexican gardeners are under no such prohibition.
But that gem of xenophobic ignorance was breathtaking. Somehow only 'Muricuns can possibly understand loyalty to one's country, or city. Having served in my countries armed forces, I should think I have some idea as to what loyalty means. Perhaps when you're old enough, you too can serve your country the same way.
