Raiders live chat tomorrow at noon


Sorry for the late notice, but wanted to alert you folks that Jerry McDonald will be conducting a live chat about the Raiders tomorrow (Wednesday, Aug. 26) at noon PDT.

The Raiders had the day off in Napa today, which meant Jerry also took a day of rest. But he’ll be back to answer your questions before Raiders practice tomorrow, then he’ll post reports from practice on his Twitter account as well as this blog.

Hope you can join us tomorrow for the live chat!

    oh boy, now I can die happy 😀

  • Are you for real? How long you been a fan Kell? Al Davis would rather find the diamond in the rough that no one thought would make it, than take the “sure thing” heisman guy any day of the week. Doesnt mean he doesnt take ‘em, I mean we couldn’t pass on DMAC. Point is, that’s part of Al’s legacy.
    I started going to the games with my Dad in 1964′

    How bout you?

  • Terrapin

    Sure, the team wasted time with Sands, Stu, et al. But the good news Kell is that they’ve been getting the picks right lately – filling the spots with the right men and wasting less time. The team is now visibly improving.

    Lets take a look at this list Kell and tell me what you see..

    It’s all about Superbowls. Winning records are fluff and mean nothing. Just ask the current Dallas Cowboys and Jerry jones if that statment doesn’t ring true.

  • NoMoreFargas

    If you don’t think Al would take Heisman winners you must not have seen the Raiders in the 80’s Plunkett,M.Allen,B.Jackson,T.Brown, and later in 90’s D.Howard

  • Any of you guys remember when Al Davis signed Tommie Smith, the Olympic sprinter?

    Didn’t think so.

  • AZ Raider

    Notice the Colts and the Raiders show up on my list the same amount of times. Winning records for the last 20 years mean squat.

  • NoMoreFargas

    I remember when 45+yr Jim Brown was on cover of SI in Raider gear talking about a comeback.

    What does it hurt to lose the most games over 6-years?

    Ummm…NOTHING, but merchandise and ticket sales.

    Oh, and a lot of pride.

    But, that’s all.
    AZ Raider here’s what your brother thinks too. Frankly it’s one of the most disgusting things anybody could say about sports. That winning is not important.

    But I’ll keep your statement too. You’ll see it again.

  • PassTheCheetos

    I remember being at a Raiders game in 02 and looking up at the scoreboard. You know what statistic they showed. Winning percentage. The Raiders used to have the highest winning percentage of any American sports team of any sport. WTF happened.

  • How bout Playoff Appearances, are they Irrelevant too?

    Playoff Appearances by Team in the 20 years since Free Agency in 1989.

    No doubt that Al has been a huge handicap recently, but I can’t remember when he has ever rebuilt like he has in the last three years.

    Unfortunately, it’s only been on offense.

  • PassTheCheetos

    eh who cares offense is more fun to watch anyways.

  • AZ Raider

    Peace Nation. Catch you cats tomorrow.

  • AZ Raider

    pretty much the same list. Playoffs mean squat if you cant get to the big show.

  • AZ Raider

    ok im out.

  • Norco Bob

    Any of us give a damn when al davis signed tommy smith?…. didnt think so.

  • Norco Bob

    Hey Kell, clearly you are very unhappy with the raiders,..why dont you just stop following them?

  • Norco Bob

    And you calling yourself “kool”,..ya,..sure,..clearly nobody else does.

  • PassTheCheetos

    its even kooler when its spelt with a K just like a r tard would

  • Twocents

    Hard to call a pre-season game critical, but my well- being requires a good showing by the Raiders this Saturday.

    I don’t care what the score is, just look professional.

    ha ha…

    i used to coach a “B” league boys baseball…

    i used to say… “guys, i don’t care what the score is… just don’t embarrass yourselves… lot of women in the stands… look good for them…”

    13 and 14 year olds…

  • Norco Bob

    On chron live Denny Green basically said russell sucks,..cant make all throws,..horrible accuracy.

  • PassTheCheetos

    Denny Green the genius of the UFL. He will be out of the job in a year when that flops. Still probably butt hurt that Al didnt hire him.

  • Norco Bob

    Denny turned him down, more then once.

  • fingers

    Denny Green- Yawnnnnn…Russells gonna be fine..Garcias just a back up at best…Starting Garcia sets the Raiders back…
