Do you feel targeted by blog management for your opinions?
A few weeks back I put the full court press on Richochet, asking him what business he owns. Banned for a week or so.
About a week ago, I did it again, and I was banned for a couple of days.
For some reason, you start bringing it to Richochet, you’re gone.
Jason Campbell coming up next on NFLN.
Eisen showing Silver and Black a little love going into commercial. Some people saying Raiders could step up and challenge SD in West. How about that!
So I’m a bucs and cowboys fan ,now? How’s that possible?
I noticed the same thing concerning that person.
Haha I have no clue it just sounds good…..
Those were some nice looking screens they ran Sat.
Like to see DMac out in the open field on some of those. Hopefully this Sat. night.
Sounds like Rich has been listening to Fat Azz Sapp, however.
Buckeye….Whats Eisen saying? Im at lame as work and cant watch it..
Players are having tough time dealing with heat. They may have to call this one at 5

Going to be hot in Tennessee, too.
I think the Raiders should move their camp to Stockton or Tracy or somewhere. Napa is too mild.
Life here at Jerryworld is back to normal.
The Raider hating tag team of the indesructible Nevercool Kell and the one and only incompetent sidekick Meltdown Retard are in mid season form
lol Plunk #1
If I posted something like #61, I’d be banned.
He asked him about having like nine different OC’s in college and the pros. JC responded by saying how much he likes Hue Jackson and this offense and the things it can do. Eisen responded with a smart alecky comment about “someone else in the org., maybe a little higher up the flow chart, that has his own ideas how things should go, as oppoosed to the OC.”
Kinda parroting what Sapp said about AD overruling the DC’s gameplan on Fri. before the game. That sorta thing.
Then his next question is about Haynesworth. Go figure.
Kell, I still think the Niners are cursed for leaving Rocklin. Their first year there was 1981, the first year they won the Super Bowl. 1997 was their last year there, and 2 years after that, Young gets injured and the Niners are never the same again. Practicing in that scorching heat for a few weeks then going down the cool bay area was the perfect system for them.
I pray we can shut all the haters up….. I think this year will be the year…..
I do agree that the raiders should practice in Stockton or Tracy… dont think they should be sippin wine and eatin cheese in the cool breeze of Napa.
I wonder why an old lady around the corner gave me a bottle opener that plays the Raiders theme song when used?
Kell, I think you and RMR get banned because you guys post the same stuff over and over again, and you exceed the saturation point.
In other words, they just get tired of your schtick and do it to shut you up for awhile.
To haunt you this year as you swig OE?
I wanna say that our practices should be alil tougher you know some ol Paul Bear Bryant tactics but players are breakin down and gettin injured in Napa…I can only imagine what Tracy would do to them.
KK has been getting banned for years for wigging out, cursing out others, stalking other members, posting names out of the phonebook and accusing said members of crimes.
And for posting the same drivel after being told not to
These Raider coaches better not allow these players to get COMPLACENT!
The goal is to WIN THE AFC WEST and beat the teams in the division!

Plenty of team loyalists are guilty of repeating the same things over and over as well. What Kell and myself have noticed is that when we fight with *certain* people, we’re banned almost immediately. Could be a coincidence, but it’s still something we’ve both noticed, that’s all.
105 degrees in Napa
Anything interesting on twitter?… Who sat out practice today?
One of the nice things I’ve noticed through two preseason games is how much better the Raiders coverage units look. Both kickoff and punt.
Special teams is 1/3 of the game. While the Raiders Punter and kicker are amongst the best, if not the best, their coverage units have really slipped in the last year or two.
So far, they have looked much improved. A lot of fast,young defenders flyin down the field and thumpin people. I like it.
And that Swayze Waters kid has been pretty damn impressive. On both punts and kicking. Like I said, Jano and Lechler are both at or near the top.
When Oakland waives this kid, I bet there are 3 or 4 teams waiting to sign him. Wonder if they could trade him for an extra late rd pick. Seriously. Seems several teams go through multiple kickers a year, trying to find a good one.

Why did it take almost 30 years for Madden to get into the HOF?
He only won the one Super Bowl but was up against the Steel Curtain at the peak of its powers. His play off record was 9-7.
Add that to the fact the A hole writers who vote have a well stated hatred of the Raiders and were jealous of Madden’s massive sucess and you get a guy with one of the best win loss coaching records of all time (112-39-7) taking 30 yrs to get in.
77. They have depth and comepetion for the first time I can remember.
Spec teams look loaded save for Sam Williams!
Are these the type of personal attacks you speak of?

Who sat out practice today?
Only Jerry, so it seems.
Tafur’s twitter updates are lacking big time. No update on who was running 1st team C, 20 min breaks in between tweets, and no real updates.
Tafur is terrible.
Once you actually get some decent talent and depth with you LB and DB units, no surprise STs are much improved.
Only 2 more Nanp practices!
DMC and Bey are BACK baby!!!
81. Awwww! KK got his feelers hurt!
Pizz on it KK, try not to worry too much what some blogger says.
But when the Raiders are losing, it’s everybody else’s fault.
Al Davis has made some mistakes, and admitted as much. Bad 7 year run, but it’s over and we are back to being competitive.
That is what you want to see, right?
Do you give Al Davis credit for any of the apparent turn around?
Watching Cowboys-Chargers. Chargers look pretty good on offense, even though Rivers just threw an INT. Their o-line looks quick and agressive. Sproles is still a pain in the neck to anyone trying to defend against him in the open field. Their secondary looks slow, however they are getting good push on the Cowboys’ o-line.
Obviously, pressure on Rivers and containing Sproles is going to be the key. Matthews will get some yards, but Sproles can break your back on those second and third-and-longs.
So after reading the raidernationstation artcile on todays camp it looks like Dhb and Mcfadden are both on the field and that DHB is looking like he was when camp started….I really hope this kid can catch some balls against the Whiners..
Our answer for the Chargers ????
BEAST front 4!
Houston-Seymour-Kelly-ShoNasty = a lot of 3rd and longs.
Wimbley and Scott at DE on those 3rd and longs = a lot of pressure. Not to mention Seymour and Kelly in the middle. Those front 4s are going to cause problems and create turnovers!
Tafur is terrible…….
Make some trades, Big Al…

Is it that you’re incapable of distinguishing someone pointing out a blatant double standard from someone having their feelings hurt, or is that you don’t want to?
Unkool kell never fails us.
He and MR are the first to snitch and then tell us how righteous they are for doing it.
Actually KK does not do that, but the other half of the terrible half sure does.
You would think meltdown isspends lots of time in court
We do not need Gaither, his injured back, or his bad attitude.
If he is not good enough or wanted by Baltimore, why would we want him?
Same with anyone else’s hot garbage!
Nice observations Teach,#89
My Gawd Rivers is a mouthy punk. But he is a helluva QB. And Sproles is a menace in the open field. They are still gonna be a tough out. But I do think they are starting to slip back to the pack a little though. Especially with the Jackson and McNeil situation. Hopefully their window is starting to close.
The Raiders are gaining on them. They gave them a pretty good physical, beating last year. Probably should’ve beat em.
Sooner, rather than later, there is going to be a changing of the guard. The universe will be restored to it’s rightful order, and the Silver and Black will regain their iron grip on the AFC West.

Al Davis has made some mistakes, and admitted as much.
What has he admitted?
He’s admitted to minor things that really aren’t the reason we’ve been losing.
Has he ever admitted blowing it with Gruden, big time?
Has he admitted to blowing it with Marcus Allen, who turned out to not only be the best 3rd down back in football after Al got rid of him, but one of the best 3rd down backs in the history of the game?
Al admits to little things, or he doesn’t specifically point out what he’s to blame for, giving the impression that others are at fault as well as him.
Al has never truly humbled himself and taken the bucks for some of the major blunders that helped result in the disaster he watches over now.
I sure wouldnt mind Patrick Crayton joining the team.
Thanks for the post …good stuff. Crossing my fingers for a good showing from DHB on the field, in a game.
FB is definitely a major issue. Daniels doesn’t get it; Lawton is no good and will get cut just like Daniels. Reese may make the squad and be the guy. Suffice to say, they definitely need another Oren O’Neil.
