Raider Nation Celebration all lined up

Those who wish to get their first look at the 2012 Raiders in a game have to wait until Aug. 13, when the Raiders kick off their exhibition season with a home game against the Dallas Cowboys.
However, the Raiders will provide a sneak peek at the 2012 Raiders on Aug. 12 at the Oakland Coliseum as part of Raider Nation Celebration day.
The event runs from 1 p.m.-4 in Parking Lot B on the south side of the Coliseum complex. Here is the press release issued by the Raiders:

The Oakland Raiders will celebrate the start of football this year with the Raider Nation Celebration on Sunday, August 12 from 1 – 4 p.m. at O.co Coliseum, in parking lot “B,” which is located on the south side of the Coliseum Complex.

This family-friendly event is free and open to the general public and takes place one day before the Oakland Raiders kick off the 2012 campaign in the national spotlight, hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, August 13.

The Raiders have hosted variations of this fan rally since 1998 at a number of locations throughout Oakland, including Jack London Square, Frank Ogawa Plaza and the Coliseum.

The Raider Nation Celebration will be highlighted by the introduction of first-year coach Dennis Allen and the 2012 Raiders and Raiderettes.

The event will also feature an interactive Kid’s Zone as well as autograph opportunities with Raider Legends and Raiderettes.

A number of exclusive opportunities – locker room tours for season ticket holders and a food tasting for suite holders – will also be part of this year’s Raider Nation Celebration.

Those attending the Raider Nation Celebration will be able to shop at special on site Raider Image, the team’s official store, and food and alcohol-free beverage concessions stands will be available to fans.

There will also be the opportunity for fans to select tickets for Raider games in what stacks up to be a challenging, exciting 2012 schedule. The Raiders also open the 2012 regular season in prime time, hosting AFC West rival San Diego Chargers on Monday night, September 10, in the second half of the ESPN double-header.

    I rather have the players play video games than play Gangsters (McClain), play in Vegas (Walker), play with alcohol (DHB), play with Viagra (LM and who knows what else he was playing with), etc….

    Saints, Seahawks Only Teams to Show Up at Larry Lumpkin’s Pro Day

  • RaiderRockstar

    Lumpkin had academics problems at Carson-Newman. And his position coach at his first school, Alabama A&M, called the linebacker out for being undisciplined and missing both practices and parts of meetings while he was part of their program.

    zero teams that showed up for his first workout on July 8.

    here is JR’s claim to fame:

    In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Russell housed around a dozen evacuees who had fled the flooding in New Orleans, including New Orleans singer Fats Domino, in his off-campus apartment

    Per La Canfora, the Supplemental Draft is now over. Nobody selected except for Gordon. I’d still like to see Reggie go after Lumpkin as a UDFA.
