An Apology to the Raider Nation
« Reply #227 on: June 05, 2013, 02:53:58 PM »
It appears media is now waking up a little bit lately now that the Raider Nation is saying, "We are not gonna accept your bullshit anymore!" Where are the Chargers Super bowl rings? Why are there more Raider fans in San Diego than Charger fans?

Write your little mid-term papers on that!!!!

"The New Silver and Black" from RaiderTake.com

The New Silver & Black

"Reggie's my guy. He did inherit a mess, and he's still cleaning. I can be patient with him..."

               -Mark Davis in Sports Illustrated

Everything we've been talking about lately here at Raider Take is now reported in great detail in the new issue of Sports Illustrated, in an extensive five-page spread titled The New Silver & Black: "SI followed Oakland's brain trust over the course of a year as it worked to transform the culture of an iconic franchise..."

Note: you can find an online synopsis of that magazine article here: http://insidesportsillustrated.com/2013/04/18/the-new-silver-and-black/

Simply put, this is a must-read for all Raiders fans.

From the story: "When McKenzie went to view the club's draft room last year, he discovered that none existed, so he had one built from scratch. When he requested the team's scouting questionnaires for evaluating college prospects, he learned there weren't any, so he created them."

In the piece, Mark Davis takes responsibility for the Carson Palmer deal. Dennis Allen is quoted as saying, "I want guys who love football, who are willing to put the team first...Who exemplify those characteristics." We learn that the Raiders were the only team that didn't subscribe to the psychological testing program available to each team before the draft.

This piece is ultimately a monument to hope, as achieved through radical change and, alas, necessary patience.

Please go read it, and then let's hash it out in the comments section.

http://www.raidertake.com/2013/04/the-new-silver-black.html





Note from Randy:

I think when they said in the article that prior to Reggie McKenzie the Raiders had no draft "war room", they meant they didn't have much of a war room. I saw the Raiders' draft room when I took a tour of the Raiders' headquarters in Alameda a couple of years ago. The tour guide referred to it as the "war room" for the draft, and even showed us Al's chair, where he always sat at the head of the table.

From what I remember, it looked just like a typical conference room, with a big oval table in the middle of the room and a white board at the opposite end of the table from where Al Davis sat. Besides that, they had a TV set on which to view the draft, and several telephones, but that was about it. The tour guide told us that this was one room where Mr. Davis did not allow photos to be taken. I wonder if he was afraid of other teams seeing his setup, and didn't want them copying it.

I remember seeing an article shortly after Reggie was hired, that mentioned remodeling he was having done to the Raider' draft room. It showed him sitting in a smaller room he had built off to the side of the main conference room, where he had had some computer equipment installed. It showed Reggie sitting at the computer.

So the Raiders did have a draft room when Al Davis was running things, but I'm sure it was NOT "state of the art". It probably lacked all the latest high tech equipment that all the other NFL teams most likely have in their war rooms.

Here is a photo I found online of the Raiders "War Room" during last year's draft:



Hey, check out this photo of the Packers' War Room from 2012 that I just found online. Look familiar?:

Aspiring Rapper "Kenny Clutch", formerly of Oakland, killed in Vegas shooting
Kristin J. Bender, Oakland Tribune


<a href="http://youtube.com/v/nL4qgb4ozWQ" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://youtube.com/v/nL4qgb4ozWQ</a>

Ken Cherry, 27, who rapped under the name Kenny Clutch, was shot by someone in a black Range Rover about 4:20 a.m. as he drove on the Las Vegas strip. After he was shot, Cherry rapidly accelerated his gray Maserati down Las Vegas Boulevard and through a red light before striking a cab at the intersection of Flamingo Road.

The cab burst into flames, and the cabdriver and a passenger were both killed. Six others were injured, police said.

Think this Bay Area sports writer is a little biased? He says in the article, "are you listening Raiders?"

He begrudgingly adds the years the Raiders won the Superbowl to this list of dates....but doesn't even list the Raiders going to the Superbowl in 2003. Why not? Because they didn't win it? Well he does list the 49ers going to this year's Superbowl. I guess they've already won!

Here's hoping we can angle this as to his conduct is detrimental to the team, he was suspended, etc.  Try to get away from paying some of this guy's bloated salary.

If we would have simply waived him and another team picked him up, we would have been screwed.

So this is a "Real Defense"?
Paul Gutierrez, Comcast SportsNet

Michael Huff had said he looked forward to playing in a "real defense" (all respect to Al Davis). Well, this defense has given up 125 points, which is the most points the Raiders have surrendered in the first four games of a season since before Al Davis came to Oakland in 1963.

http://www.csnbayarea.com/football-oakland-raiders/raiders-talk/So-this-is-a-real-defense?blockID=782281&feedID=2801

I bet he didn't expect to be playing corner behind the worst pass rush in the league.

This "defense" is depressingly terrible.

Struggling offense not sitting well with Raider Nation
Monte Poole, Bay Area News Group


"I believe the team that won the Super Bowl last year was 9-7, and they had their struggles on offense at different points during the season. So it's going to take some patience. Players need to have it, coaches need to have it ... it's going to take some time.'' Greg Knapp

Note: The 1994 Oakland Raiders started 0-2 and didn't have back to back losses the rest of the season....finishing with 9 wins.

Never should have let this guy go last year.  I like the move.  Solid possession receiver.

Oakland Raiders uniforms ranked #13 in all pro sports.

Oakland Athletics ranked #8! (ahead of Yankees!)

Montreal Canadiens ranked #1

Top NFL team uniform? Chicago Bears!!!?

Big Wiz Resigns.

Big Wiz resigning.. hmm interesting.

I always thought we took Lil Wiz a Round or 2 early only for the family pedigree (Todd McShay had him rated as a 5th round  pick)

In saying that.. Lil Wiz completely out did my expectations.

It will be interesting to see how he adapts now without the family blood in Alameda.
