UPDATE: No Raiders chat this week


Sorry guys,

Just found out we’re going to have to hold off our “Inside the Raiders” chat until next Tuesday (May 12). Players will be arriving later this week for minicamp on Friday, when Jerry McDonald will begin posting updates from the complex in Alameda.

    Wow, those are some UUUUUUGLY logos. Although I do like the alternate one from 62-67 because it looks like a cartoon depiction of the proverbial beaten dead horse. I’ll call it the MR horse logo.

  • That is just plain biased because Robbins was a Raider. You gave him a pass while you judge the others.

    dont get It twisted… I am not judging any 1.. I said I have no sympathy for them… Of course I give B.Rob a pass he was a RAIDER and a damn good 1…

  • Raider Dell

    A serious note, those old AFL uniforms really had no creative code. I’m amazed how ugly the color and logos were.

    Fast forward today, could you see anyone buying hats, t-shirts or game jersey with those colors, yikes gag!!!

  • I like the old RAIDER LOGO.. and I the white Jerseys with the silver &black #’s and letters are awesome IMO

    Raider Dell,
    Just game one. Laker’s in 6. They were off too long.

  • M Lonetree

    I was in a Raider Image store yesterday buying a gift and conversing with the store clerk. He mentioned that the face on the Raider shield was designed after a cowboy actor. Anyone know who the actor was? The clerk didn’t know and I’d never heard the story before.

  • Had to be John Wayne… pilgrim (just guessing)

  • Randolph Scott

  • TW

    you guessing to or do ya have facts???

    Original Raider logo after the switch from the Oakland Senors name.

    I agree, I just hate to see the home court advantage switch to Houston.

    I sensed when Yao got hurt and came back the Rockets really picked up their game, the Lakers never matched their intensity.

    These series have so many twist that a bad call or a bad bounce can really put you out very quickly.

  • The original team colors were black, gold and white. The now-familiar team emblem of a pirate (or “raider”) wearing a football helmet was created, reportedly a rendition of actor Randolph Scott.[9]

    I had heard it before but forgot the actors name. Years before my time.

  • Raider Dell

    I’ll be at the Monday night game, the Chargers uniforms won’t be that bad, they just look like egg yolks running down their sides.

  • Raider Dell

    The retro uniforms will generate some business for the NFL, I just don’t see very much.

  • OAKlifer

    Its not that we are against Steroid per say its more like we just hate the Chargers and that gay Steroid induced dance Merriman does.


    I would have liked the dance had he been eating QB’s for our defense….just sayin

    Raider Dell,
    Yao is a monster when he is allowed to establish position. At 7’6″ and 300lbs+ he dominates. Must be made to run and switch outside his comfort zone. He is a 2nd tier center in the NBA. IMHO

    WHAT ABOUT THEM NUGGETS โ“ Mavs are crying that K-mart is too mean ๐Ÿ˜ˆ WAA ๐Ÿ™

    thanks. Randolph Scott he is.

  • Raider Dell

    I must go back to work, the comments were sintilating, and pervocative.

    Raider On!

    Dakota, hope your mom is doing well.

  • M Lonetree

    the Lakers and the Celtics both losing on the same night is all good. hope that can be sustained.

  • M Lonetree

    Later on Monsieur Dell.

  • exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    1960 1st season history of the Raiders.

  • should we take a look at Foote the Steelers just cut him?

  • 4evaRaider


  • 3-4 LBs are diff than 4-3 LBs, especially OLBs like Merriman.
    OLBs in a 3-4 scheme are tweeners/ Players who played End at college, but they are undersized and have lots of speed to rush the passer and also cover.

    If Merriman was to play for a 4-3 team like us, he would play DE at 6’5 270 and not LB!!!

    235 is too small for a SLB!!!!!
    It’s not all about size, but does he fit the scheme??
    Look at a Tampa 2 or cover 2, you need fast LB who can cover. Who cares what size they are.!! PB OLB C June is only 225!!!

  • yo Happy Troll do ya know how to make the ROFLMAO smiley???

  • Ufck the frenchies!!!

  • JK dakota

  • farve needs to stay retired… Michael jordan he is not….

  • *favre

  • What happened to KB?!! I thought he was the man Dakota!!! lol

    All hail king James. lol


  • 408, are you kidding? Favre in Minny would be great! He may play for 5 more years once he realizes all he has to do is hand off to AP 30 times, and throw some screens to Harvin and an occasional bomb to that WR they got from the Bears last year…can’t remember his name…

    And then we could watch him stick it to the Packers twice a year! I would love it.

  • King James: MVP
    King James is better than KB.


  • Don’t worry Raider O, Kobe will be just fine…he’ll drop 45 on the Rockets in game 2.

  • Maybe but I’m sick of the guy… He is a whiner IMO…

  • Favre Is Done!! He is 40!!!

  • SnB Defense

    Desmond Bryant should be given an opportunity at defensive end….6’6 288….hopefully he has some quickness to go with that big size.

    I hope they give him a tryout there. Let him be the base DE and serve as a rotational guy inside.

    Then go ahead and cut Boschetti or Joseph…or SAnds

  • Brien the General 510

    Haha the Lakers lol. Kobe can go score 45 all he wants. It wont be an easy 45 and he will not have his teammates involved if thats the case. Rockets did a great thing last night. Would be a great month of May to see Lakers not advance

  • new post up

  • Don’t be cruel bloggers…

    To that mod/troll when she is on her period because she can get very angry and boot people for selfish inadvertent reasons other than (racial slur derogatory comments patronizing other bloggers).

    If you see posts left up that still contain racial slurs and flat out foul language and then a posts gets deleted for no justifiable reason it makes you wonder?
