Where is the insanity? This is boring!

What kind of Raider off-season is this? No crazy draft picks, no arrests (except one -- thank you, DHB), no idiots waking up drunk and beat up in Vegas, no giant contracts offered to crappy players (thank you, Javon, for so many memories), no purple drank ... nothing! All we've gotten are logical draft picks, well-planned signings, and a team that seems to run ... according to plan. That's not the Raiders! I need drama, I need insanity, I need shit to complain about! Even the owner going to a Clippers game got explained away as not a threat that the team would leave. What?? The owner having a nice interview with the local media and saying he wants to stay in Oakland?? God help me. At this rate, we'll start winning, and where's the fun in that? ... no ... wait ... oh yeah, that is fun. it's been a while since i've seen it with any regularity, but i seem to remember it being fun. didn't we used to, like, win more than we lost? that used to happen, right? so ... maybe that could happen again, if this whole "run the team like a professional organization" thing works out? well ... can we still have a little drama? can a player knock up a cheerleader or something? or like in cincinnati, can one of the cheerleaders be a high school teacher who gets busted for having sex with her students? that would be hilarious. please. throw me a bone here.

Ex-Oakland Raider Jon Alston - eye-opening thoughts about concussions

Ex-Oakland Raider Jon Alston has some eye-opening thoughts about concussions and the NFL
http://www.insidebayarea.com/raiders/ci_20561236/ex-oakland-raider-jon-alston-has-some-eye

Show news day today, and the last few days. This was the only new Raiders related article I could find today. I'll recheck later in the afternoon and then post the Daily News Links. Hopefully there will be something new by then besides this article. Good article though! Best wishes to Jon Alston. Sounds like he's doing well.

Nose tackle for multiple Raiders? Kelly
Jerry McDonald, NFL writer

Raiders coach Dennis Allen sat down with Tim Kawakami Wednesday and one of the nuggets during a 20-minute conversation is that Tommy Kelly would be the nose tackle should Oakland employ a 3-4 defense.

The raiders have resigned Matt Girodano Giordano. This is my favorite move of this off season. One of my favorite defensive backs on the team and he brings some age to our very young secondary.

Not favorite enough to know how to pronounce  spell his name, huh?  ;)  ;D  ;D  ;D

Fixed it for you :)
Randy's made fun of me before for spelling the same name wrong when we played Kansas City at Kansas City. I think it's time to learn how to spell......

If you spell it GIROdano, you've gotta pronounce it GIROdano.  ;)

I'm with ya, it's a good move.  Adds depth to our DBs.   Tough kid and he plays hard.   You can never have enough guys like that on your team...

I was thinking this morning that despite what some of us feel about the skill level of the players Oakland has acquired this off-season thus far, we have added players IN EVERY POSITION that we need so far.  I know some may feel we may need another TE and/or WR but we have the personnel already on the roster, an addition there is simply a luxury at this point.  Of course, more players are needed and I hope that we are able to get some disciplined, skilled players in the draft later this month.  When is the last time during an off-season where have actually made PRODUCTIVE moves???  It's been years...

I am freaking pumped with the new management of this team.  I am glad to have some new blood in this organization instead of the constant "pins and needles" and the BS "secrecy" under Al.  Given the ridiculous salaries and under-achieving players we had, we had to start somewhere.  I am more than optimistic for this season and welcome our new Raiders!

With that said, PEYTON MUST GO DOWN AND HE MUST GO DOWN HARD!

Panthers trade Mike Goodson to the Raiders http://t.co/2J6j5MWW
I for one am not happy about acquiring this guy......he is suppose to be an ok back....however we should have franchised Bush being the fact that Mcfadden will surely miss 7-8 games as usual. What concerns me is that goodson has 7 fumbles in 125 carries...........now we have 2 backs that fumble......Mcfadden/Goodson.... >:(

Will the Oakland Raiders Pursue Tim Tebow?
http://broncotalk.net/2012/04/30821/nfl-news-notes/will-the-oakland-raiders-pursue-tim-tebow/

"The Raiders would like to retain quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Terrelle Pryor, but they reportedly would be willing to trade Rhett Bomar and five of their seven 2013 draft selections to New York in exchange for Tebow."

Complete story:
http://broncotalk.net/2012/04/30821/nfl-news-notes/will-the-oakland-raiders-pursue-tim-tebow/

(Note....this story is from a site called RaidersTalk....but the url starts with broncotalk. A fake Raiders site by Broncos fans?)

P.S. The details of this hypothetical trade.....I might be able to go along with giving up 5 of our 7 draft picks in 2013 for Tebow, but I CAN'T go along with giving up our QB Rhett Bomar. He's the man! Our future franchise QB! Tebow would be our wildcat guy.

what??? was this posted on april fool's day? it's now april 2 in japan, and i don't know when this was posted. it's an april fool's joke, right?

update: i clicked the link. the potential trade was reported by "gan stermama." ooh, those bronco fans sure are witty. woo hoo. i'm amazed they stopped masturbating long enough to type the joke.
