thug and gangster and lowlife does not equal middle and lower class.  So I can't call ( ) fat but you can call me a cocksucker?  Are U saying paco in the hood isn't proper thinking?  WTF are youi Al-Qaeda? R the rest of the league infidels?  Being a fan of the raiders, which I am regardless of what ( ) spits doesn't me me better than any other fan of any other team.  How can you b!tch that other think they are better than you when you feel you are better than them?

Raiders on Hard Knocks is not a good idea.  It would generate great rating for HBO but not what a New HC needs

Wu-Tang Hokie Raider:
yea...I am NOT saying I'm an expert by any means, but as someone who has worked in editing for reality TV...we DO NOT...I repeat, DO NOT, want hard knocks to come to Oakland...trust me, these shows are ANYTHING but reality...it would make good TV, but I already know the route they would take...they would make the raiders look like a failing dis"organization"...not because that's what we are, but because when editing documentary or "reality" footage, you can basically paint any picture you want...the only hope we would have if they came to Oakland is that they decide they want to make us look like a reborn, rising power...i don't think they would do that, so i say fuck that...maybe I'm wrong tho

Trust me Oscar he makes the FINAL call it's his team you of all people should understand that by now with the whole J-Russ thing.... Please.... Training camp has been closed to the public since they have been the Raiders.... There not going to change that now.... Or like I said I'll lose total respect for Al.... They'll make us look like pussies period!

Yeah bro, i hear ya.. he has ultimate final say...

But I think from a football standpoint compared to a marketing/operations stand point, he'd only really focus on the players. If Amy twisted his arm then I think he'd agree to it.

But it's totally against the whole raider tradition. The Raiders have always been FANS FIRST/MEDIA 2ND... it'd go against there principles of having the show on a sitcom (allthough don't get me wrong some of the theatrics that go down there already make hella good tv)

I don't know a whole lot about this hard knocks show (how long it's been going etc)... But the BUCS make more sense due to them being a East Coast team.

Dude that would fucking suck if the Raiders were on Hard Knocks.... It would drain the remaining mystic out of the Raiders they have left.... Let me give you a example.... Ozzy Osbourne was a fucking radical dude and always had a cool aura about him that was special.... Well when he went on that reality show on MTV it destroyed anything left that was good about Ozzy and basically turned him into a bumbling retard that every person out there that NEVER knew Ozzy before only knows that about him today.... last thing I want to see is our team getting exposed and edited to any bias way they want and make us look like pussies.... Fuck that noise about Hard Knocks... If they do that I'll lose any respect left I have left for Al Davis.

Just curious, but how do you know it'd be Al's choice?

I only ask because I remember at the Tom Cable press conference (the hiring/not firing) someone asked Al about Monday Night Home Openers and he said

"There a distraction for the team, I don't want the game.. But Amy says it's good for business"

As much as Al makes the football field decisions, it appears to me he is not pulling the operations dept strings.

I agree with you Raidermike that'd turn us into a bias situation... however I don't think Al would make the final decision on that call.
