I mentioned during the FF Draft about playing golf a couple weeks ago with former TE of the Jags, Jets, Patriots Kyle Brady.  We talked quite a bit about the Raiders...since he was always a big Raiders fan growing up.

Other fans I can think of would be Jaime Foxx, Paula Abdul, Jessica Alba, Ice-T, Larry King, Snoop Dog and LL Cool J.

Celebrities who are known to be fans of the Raiders?

Well, right off the top of my head.....the first who comes to mind is James Garner (Maverick and Rockford Files). He was always on the sidelines at Raiders games when they were in LA....and even before that in Oakland. When I had season tickets in Oakland in 80 and 81 I used to see him on the sidelines there. See photos  below, of him on sidelines, that I found online.

Don't forget about Tupac, Biggie, and the Luniz.

Yeah i can understand tupac & luniz being raider fans (BAY AREA REPRESENT)

As for BIGGIE... The only evidence i can go off that is in the movie "Notorious" a young Christopher Wallace can be seen wearing a Raiders Scully... I dont know if thats groundbreaking proof, but id take that!

Just got done listening to the Rich Eisen podcast (NFL NETWORK)

He had former MTV host Carson Daly and they chatted raiders for a couple of minutes.

Also speaking of podcasts... The Bill Simmons BS Report a couple of weeks back had Bass Guitarist for the Chili Peppers (FLEA) .. he said he use to be a big raiders fan (but must've turned off them when they moved back to the O)
