It’s official: Blackout lifted for Chiefs-Raiders

There will be no blackout.

The Raiders confirmed what looked to be inevitable when they announced that Sunday’s AFC West game against the Kansas City Chiefs was sold out and would be televised locally.

It is the first time the Raiders will be on local television for a home game since the 2009 season opener, a 24-20 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Monday night. The last 11 games have been blacked out.

Tickets must be sold out 72 hours in advance for a game to be shown in its home market, but the Raiders received an extension from the NFL Thursday.

    DHB’s #’s would be doubled if we had consistent QB play. I haven’t seen anyone cover him one on one. KC definitely cannot.
    ===================
    guy is averaging less than 2.5 receptions per game. you know, like one EACH HALF?
    oh yeah, geezer, no one can cover him.

    c’mon lefty. what? you also have no balls? tjgeezer goes coward, and you feel you must?
    you stated I was wrong regarding bey dropping balls.
    I posted the following above.

    what sticks in my craw is couple of you morons give bey a pass, and blame his horrible production last 1 1/2 yrs on the qb, and that’s bs. yeah, they’ve made some bad throws. but he sure has done a bad job of pulling in those he should have caught.
    now he has a chance to show if it’s a fluke or not, having one solid game.
    why do I know the geezer and the ballless one will blame the qb, if he doesn’t?

    just stated you would do the same as tjgeezer, when called out to back up your words. and you did exactly that, like I said you would.
    he’s old, slow, kinda stupid.
    what’s your excuse? oh, that’s right. youre in coward mode. thanks for proving my point, moron

  • lefty12

    KK,I know it really hurts you and a few others on here that it appears the Raiders have turned the corner and are once again a competitive team that might even have a shot at a very good season or even the division title,but the hurt and disappointment will go away.We will lose another game this year so you won’t have to be miserable every week.

    Has anyone here ever sat in either of the Club Sections? Tempted to make the plunge.
    —————————————
    Yeah, that’s the only way I go. Takes a wrist ban to get into those areas. Private Box area, with drinks. I met Steph Curry, Anthony Randolph, Anthony Morrow last year there.

    Best Vantage point for the game. Worth it.

    ———————————————————

    Thanks KK. Hopefully the folks in those sections still yell and get a little rowdy as that’s my style. Don’t want to get up there and have people try to shush me like they’re at the opera. lol

  • YoungAmerican

    Who’s giving Heyward-Bey a pass? What do you want us to do, petition Al Davis to cut him? Turn back time and take Crabtree or whoever you liked?

    The kid seems to be doing everything he can to learn the game. Yeah, DHB’s production thus far hasn’t been ideal. Far from it. And while last weekend’s game was big for him, he still has a lot of room for improvement. I think he’d be the first to say that. DHB wouldn’t be the first player to take a few years to come around. Hopefully that happens. All we can do is wait and see.

    KK, Al Davis should be on Mount Rushmore . Due to the Mounts instability issues:
    (such as the repeated reglueing of Washington’s nose) the Mount can not with stand the amount of awesomeness needed to jack hammer Al’s likeness at this time.

    Maybe like George Allen he prefers vets.

    ………….

    Why do you have to bring up George Allen? Why not just say that Al likes vets, and let that fact stand on its own? The more you bring up other GMs and coaches in the game to justify Al’s management, the more insecure you seem about it. “He does it too” are the words of someone who knows something is wrong

    i was just fishing and knew you’d take the bait.

    Most meaningful game the Raids have played in years.

    We’re at the halfway point and contending. Feels good.

    Old Mo is with us, we’re rolling. Not just 2 wins in a row, but two convincing wins.

    After a 3-0 start the Chiefs are 2-2 in their last 4 and came very close to losing to 0-7 Buffalo last week.

    But make no mistake, KC is a solid team. Well coached, no turnovers, very good run game, excellent return game and special teams.

    I don’t believe they’re a fluke. In fact, even though they lost to Houston, they looked very good that day. They played a lot better than we did against the Texans.

    A win this Sunday places the Raids at 3-0 in the division, a half game out of first place, and into the bye week to get healthy.

    Who would have thought it possible after JaJason stunk the joint up in S.F. ?

    If the football gods smile upon us and allow JaJason to just manage one more game effectively, we’ll be on the threshold of getting Grads back and this will be a very, very dangerous team the rest of the way.

    Because make no mistake, JaJason (despite some decent play last week) is a mutt. He’s a stiff, plain and simple. No, he’s not a rabid dog like JaMoron, but JaJason is still a dog with fleas. Cable and Hue know this, and that’s why they’ve let it be known that Grads is the unquestioned starter when he gets healthy.

    If the Raids can just get one more decent effort out of JaJason, they can win the AFC West.

    JaJason doesn’t have to do anything spectacular. Just don’t play like the absolute POS he was in Tenn, S.F. and against the Rams. Because even though the Raids are currently hitting on all other cylinders, no team can overcome the putrid, disastrous QB play JaJason has exhibited at times this year with Oakland, and previously with the Skins. I mean, when JaJason stinks, he really stinks.

    Grads on his worst day will never stink it up like JaJason can. And all you people that think JaJason has more ‘upside’ than Gradkowski, you’re hallucinating. Gradkowski doesn’t have the ideal size or cannon arm but he’s still got more potential than JaJason. Because when things break down and a little heart, improvisation and football savvy are needed Campbell is lost and Grads will rise to the occasion.

    Just don’t stink it up this week, JC.

    My territory manager is a Bronco fan and sent me these cheesy Donkey jokes. Thought we could all get some joy out of it, being that it is from a Bronco fan:

    For all you Bronco fans…..

    The C olorado State Police are cracking down on speeders heading into Denver. For the first offense, they give you 2 Denver Bronco tickets. If you get stopped a second time, they make you use them.

    Q. What do you call 47 millionaires around a TV watching the Super Bowl?
    A. The Denver Broncos

    Q. What do the Denver Broncos and Billy Graham have in common?
    A. They both can make 70,000 people stand up and yell “Jesus Christ”.

    Q. How do you keep a Denver Bronco out of your yard?
    A. Put up a goal post.

    Q. What do you call a Denver Bronco with a Super Bowl ring?
    A. Old

    Q. What’s the difference between the Denver Broncos and a dollar bill?
    A. You can still get four quarters out of a dollar bill.

    Q. How many Denver Broncos does it take to win a Super Bowl?
    A. Nobody remembers.

    Q. What do the Broncos and a possums have in common?
    A. Both play dead at home and get killed on the road!

    Even though it has worked out for us the last two games, I hate getting the ball first. I feel much better when I know we get the ball to start the 2nd half.
