Raiders offer tickets to see camp practice


Raiders training camp practices will become less exclusive this year.

Fans can pick up two tickets to a training camp practice in Napa at any Raider Image store starting Friday while supplies last.

The available practices are Aug. 3-4-5, all of which are single-day sessions scheduled from 2:20 p.m. to 5:10 p.m.

Fans will not be admitted without a ticket.

A list of Raider Image locations can be found on Raiders.com.

Since they started training in Napa in 1996, practices have been closed to the general public, although youth groups, season ticket holders, sponsors and advertisers have been on hand as invited guests.

The limited space at the Redwood Middle School location, adjacent to the Napa Marriott, makes it impossible for the Raiders to have a training camp with unlimited access.

    I had hope last season until Al died, JC went down and Hue became Napoleon all within a month of each other…but we moving on and 2012 carson is my guy


    Hue was really put in a weird position. In the history of the NFL, what other head coach has suddenly gained control of an entire franchise midway through a season? Too bad he let it go his head like he did.

    Duck….on radio last nite they were talking abot how the players were pissed how he did JC…i told blog this last year and got mocked and laughed at but now its being confirmed…come on word on street aint neva lied

  • The Wiz story is weird.
    I’m not buying this 100 hours/ week story. He was a coach last year, so he knew the job was very demanding with long hours, so why now? A few days before TC?
    I don’t like it!

    I’m surprised that Jerry makes no mention confirming or denying the Wiz story.

  • Raiders confirm:


    Assistant offensive line coach Steve Wisniewski has resigned his position due to personal reasons, the Raiders announced Thursday.
    Wisniewski will continue to assist the Raiders as an ambassador.
    Wisniewski, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection during his 13-year NFL career, all with the Silver and Black, was a warrior in the trenches. Originally a second-round selection (29th overall) of the Dallas Cowboys in the 1989 NFL Draft, he was immediately traded to the Raiders and started the final 175 games of his career before retiring after the 2001 campaign.
    The Raiders have decided not to fill Wisniewski’s position on the coaching staff this season.

  • Ambassador?!
    Something is not right.

  • This is the NFL. Every single coach has to be in sync with the GM, head coach, and the system. Al liked to take care of the Raider greats and give them jobs. But let’s be honest, in the past 20 years that’s probably hurt us more than it helped us. It’s probably one of the reasons why guys like Petrino, S. Payton and Wisenhunt said no, and why Parcells and Belichick would never consider. You want your staff. Your guys. You get some o-line coach that’s planted by the owner, you’re wondering if he’s double crossing the other guys and going to ownership behind their back, etc. It’s just not cohesive.
