Davis tribute Sunday _ and it could be full house

The Raiders’ game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns will include tributes to owner Al Davis throughout the game, according to CEO Amy Trask, and the club moved toward ensuring a full stadium with complimentary tickets given to season-ticket holders.

Season-ticket holders were sent an e-mail that said, “Your guests, will be our guests” with instructions on how to get two additional tickets. The allotment of tickets was exhausted within 24 hours, and no more complimentary tickets remain.

A follow-up e-mail was sent to season ticket holders that said, “While some of you will be disappointed by this, we hope you will agree with us that the most important thing is that the stadium is full and that so very many people will be able to pay tribute to Al Davis.”

Those who requested tickets while still available were told tickets would be assigned to their account in “within the next 24 hours.”

If the game is not blacked out locally, it will be the first time three consecutive games were televised locally since 2008, when the first four games of the season were on local TV.

    Great to hear. I just hope the team doesn’t get too stuck up with the emotional stuff and gets a win. Browns will want to play spoiler.

    What the short-sighted Republicans, and their constituents, who won’t make community with anybody but “themselves”, don’t understand is that with a rising tide all boats rise. So does the Country.

    Cutting public education, makes this country dumber, less competitive and innovative. And prevents families from entering the middle-class.

    No middle-class means no consumer spending. No consumer spending means no hiring. And BrownStains stays out of work.

    Looks like old fool Krappy is awake from his nap.

    Plenty of time to snooze when you’ve got no listings, no income and no Al Davis to whine and cry about.

    Surprised the old goat hasn’t taken his shiny red Corvette for a spin right off the Bay Bridge.

    KK the clown,
    the boat is sinking. And nobody called for public education to be cut.

    I imagine that plenty of white, black, and asian Americans would work just about anywhere right now.
    All they need is a decent wage scale but they can’t get it when illegals drag the wage scale down.

    England, the problem is the system, not the people. You got a lot of people angry at individuals coming over the border and they’re met with hate and in some cases, violence. For the most part, these are innocent people looking for an opportunity. Most would rather work that collect a govt. check.

    Also, you have to look at what corporations are doing by exporting blue collar jobs overseas.

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Hey someone tell Chuky B we are giving up 422 yds on D per game. ranked 31st! Giving up 26.6 points per game ranked 28th!

    I am a really surprised by Chucky B’s improvement, I honestly expected to be ranked 32nd on both stats!

    Hire a monkey to pick D plays! and fire that piece of trash Chuky B.

    That would be outstanding. If we beat the Browns on Al Day, think it would be pretty likely.

    ==================================================

    If you watch tape of the lst couple of possessions the Texans had the LB play is dismal. Watching the first two possessions I was thinking we should spend next years lst, 2nd and 3rd round pix on LB’s. But then for the rest of the game, with a couple of exeptions, the LB’s play better, and the defense is much better. Even So-Longo Mc Lame played OK. Not good, but OK. The beat down So-longo put on Schaub warmed my heart actually.

    In honor of illegal immigrants, I sent a few of mine to Home Depot to hire 3 more in the ultimate display of hysterical irony.

    After they all get a sweet laugh together, I’m going to put them to work building my newest creation – a 23 story high beer bong.

    If they follow my specs correctly, it should hold 80 cans of Meister Brau. Or 38 bananas. Depending on the theme of the party.

    Oh yeah and I’m cranking a little Michael Buble to get the penthouse party shakin’

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Slowlando Mclain gave up an 80 yard TD pass to a slow TE. Only Chuky B draws up schit like that. having Henderson (yeah the 400 pund dude) covering the flat. wtf?

    I reposted a PFT article yesterday or day before that showed which franchises contributed which way.

    Being that the Raiders made contributions to dems and Al was the Raiders, pretty safe to say Al was a lefty.

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    hey Beech, I hope your illigals are swedish blondes! o yeah!

  • JB

    Keeping in mind that any trade prospect must be of some value to someone & their contract status & likelihood of extension or future cost must be considered: Given that, our trade prospects should include:

    • Louis Murphy – A decent WR with some upside. Right now is part of a WR group that really doesn’t need him.

    * Michael Bush – A great prospect for a starting role. He will be looking for big money next year in FA. Still has lots on tread on the wheels due to his back-up role.

    • Rolando McClain – An excellent prospect for a 3-4 team. Very questionable for a 4-3 MLB position. Multi-year contract in-place.

    • Who’s your picks?

    Don’t forget, we really need 2012 draft picks – badly. Trading is the only way we can get more right now. We will get a compensating 3rd for Nnamdi and possibly a compensating 5th for Gallery.
