Memo to blog posters: clean up your act

I just banned a user that has made a habit of crossing the line on a continual basis. This wasn’t a one-time thing. I banned a couple other users in recent weeks for doing likewise.
Your participation and patronage are much appreciated. This is a wonderful forum for everyone to comment, vent, pass along insight, etc. However, there’s no room for profane language, insults and other stuff that clearly crosses the line of decency and respect.
So, please, do your part to keep this blog alive and make it enjoyable for everyone.
If you feel as if someone is in violation of the aforementioned guidelines, please, contact me at any time, and I will address the matter.

    I can’t understand that, all he ahd to do is wait until the team got better. He also went to NE and they cut him citing he didn’t prepare well. That’s just flatout quitting on yourself.

    If you watch Cam he still has issues with his technigue which could take until his 3rd year. Neither Cam or Kappy or Pryor are pure passers. They are great leaders competitors and generals who know how to win games. Cam is struggling some and so will Kappy whe they get a book on him. Pryor will go thru those same struggles but he will win games for you while he is going thru it.

    Let’s push ‘em over the edge. I’m sick and tired of the racial garbage (both ways)and the intentional character smearing of good people who have committed the grave sin of not winning enough football games.

    Grow up.

    if you dont have a Raider take, or a competent break down of the Raiders or legitimate, non-childish, over-the-top sarcastic idiocy

    go away – you just make the season worse.

  • tatum31

    As a faithful reader and infrequent poster, thank you Mr. Corkran. I confess to have been a less and less faithful reader as the content became less and less useful to my fascination and following of the Raiders through thick and thin since the season before Super Bowl II.

    While I’m here, my humble two cents on this year: The team athletically and talent-wise this year was better than last year, if for no other reason that there were a lot of players on the roster that were young and talented and should have, with another year experience and outstanding coaching, all been upgrades at their respective positions. It goes without saying that quarterback in this year should have been a huge upgrade, even though it was the same guy. Only Seymour was clearly going to be worse this year, and there was nothing Reggie could do about it. The corners were a tossup at best, but also perhaps the best available option, given the circumstances. Part of “should have been better” is commitment on the players part, and the rest is coaching.

    It appeared to me that all or most of the team was very committed to having a good year and did a lot of work towards that end. After waiting and watching, it is clear (at least to me) that the team has been horribly mismanaged. And, I don’t mean at the Reggie-level. He did as well as anyone else could have on the personnel side. His coaching staff wrecked a not-great-but-decent team. To some extent that is his fault. But, many good GM’s would have hired at least most of the same coaches. Reggie gave the coaches a chance of a lifetime. He gambled a bit on them, but – just as in the personnel department – probably did as good a job as anyone else would have. DA was a decent bet when he was hired. His future might be bright, still … or not. Knapp-bashing has been an Olympic-level sport. After a long and healthy “give it a chance” phase, count me in on the Knapp-bashing. If Reggie doesn’t do something about the coaching staff, then it’s on him next year. This year, it’s on the coaching team.

  • GreatWhiteRaider

    People getting banned from blogs? I’m not quite sure if that’s funny or sad? Seriously, wow….(just shaking my head).

    The most demoralizing (and qutie frankly)boring thing about the 2012 Raiders is this: they dont’t do anything. They don’t run, there’s no aerial attack, no bruising defence, no ball hawks, no “sack attack” kinda guys….no game changers, no play calling that would make you take note and be ready for it….nothing. They have absolutely NOTHING that keeps another team honest or on their toes.

    Like can you imagine the other team planning during the week?

    COORDINATOR: “K defence, we really need to be on our toes this Sunday?”

    PLAYERS: “why?”

    COORDINATOR: “K offensive line, focus on opening running lanes, keep sharp in pass protection, QB, don’t try to force any throws.”

    PLAYES: “why? who’s gonna make me pay for my mistake?”

    ……cue the dead silence…….

    Trying to stay focused and not be complacent has to be the hardest thing for them?

    The game is still close after 15 minutes? Don’t panic. Call a draw and some 3rd string RB will bust off 60 yards Or, if its’ 3rd and 13, throw it up, the safety and corner will be confused on who’s supposed to be doing what and that’ll be an easy six.

    You look at our logo, our uniforms and this is simply embarassing. It makes me sad.

    Thanks Cork, some bloggers are just here to act tough and threaten people behind their screen. It’s OK to have fun and tease but alot are over the line. Do you best and keep this a good site to discuss the Raiders! Most of these knuckleheads never have seen a Raider Super Bowl team or know whar Pride and Poise is. Go be a thug somewhere else.

    Please ban knapp from Raiders HQ, his offense is offending me!

  • tonedeezy

  • Raidernationdave

    Q: Cork, do you agree that when many of these players are released or not resigned in the offseason that none will start on another team and most will be out of the league, save lechler. This is absolutely a player issue IMO.

    A: For the most part, yes.
