Raiders-Browns blacked out

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, November 29th, 2012 at 12:50 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders-Browns game is blacked out, so it will not be televised locally, a team official said.
The Raiders needed to sell at least 85 percent of the tickets for the game to be considered a sellout and, thereby, televised locally.
This snaps a string of 13 straight regular-season home games televised locally, dating back to the start of the 2011 season.
Given the Raiders record, it’s difficult to envision them selling out against the Chiefs on Dec. 16, either. The Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning has a decent chance of selling out.

    Not sure what the Mormon’s thump, but im pretty sure it isnt a Bible..

    Te’o would be too risky to draft top 3..

  • DennisAllensVisor

    McClain asked to not come to practice as a consequence, still on roster..

    Why not engage in direct conversation with pyor?
    ============================================

    Because the head coach does not engage 3rd stringers. ===========
    ===============

    you have missed the point and that is untrue.

    If a player has been inactive all season and the coach intends to place him on the active roster it usually involves a conversation.

    The players on the active roster DO need the game plan as there is a chance they will play. Im not saying allen has to have one on one film study with him. Yet the norm is the coach tells the player that he is going to activate what his role will be and what to prepare for.

    That is just basic and is common place in every nfl city

    looks like allen has communication issues with players
    ==============================================

    Honestly dude, that’s ridiculous. Why wouldn’t Knapp and DeFillipo tell him he is going to be active and begin going over the packages for him?
    =============

    you may be correct in saying that his first start wont sell many additional tickets, but then again we dont know that.

    However once announced as a stater will generate at least curiosity and give a reason to watch. if he plays well that definitely could create additional ticket sales.

    promotion is not about selling tickets for one game but long range thinking is required instead.

    I still see a playoff team, got to continue to roll up are sleeves and get to work…

    i have a feeling reggie won’t be the greatest recruiter of coaches in terms of competing with other gm’s, although better then al legend in his later years
    ———————–
    Yeah, that remains to be seen. I read somewhere the other day, that he’s pretty well connected throughout the NFL.

    Actually, they do thump both the Bible and the Book of Mormon (they consider them co-equal).

  • The Big Banana

    At this point, why not. TP would certainly tempt me to come out this Sunday, but I already have tix. Would I buy tix? Prob not, so agree with Vegas on that one.

    But, I say yes on playing TP,

  • http://www.GodIsImaginary.com RaiderDuck

    So McClain’s still with the team and hasn’t been suspended yet.

    Just had a thought: Make him active Sunday, and put him in on punt and kick coverages. If he refuses, they can suspend him for the last four games, and not even the union could object.

  • kellygreenninja

    Wonder how we’d do if we replaced our defense with these guys?

    Defense
    DL: Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina; Bjoern Werner, Florida State; Damontre Moore, Texas A&M; Will Sutton, Arizona State
    LB: Manti Te’o, Notre Dame; Jarvis Jones, Georgia; C.J. Mosley, Alabama
    DB: Eric Reid, LSU; Dee Milliner, Alabama; Jordan Poyer, Oregon State; Phillip Thomas, Fresno State

    We need football players with heart and passion, I think Te’o has both and is a great talent..

  • DennisAllensVisor

    McClain is immature.

    IDK if Reggie and Allen are ready to give up on him though.

    I’ll wait for some actual word from them..

    Per Jerry Mac, looks like Omar Gaither is our new starting MLB…

    TEBOW/ TE’O both fierece competitors. They actually look like warriors when playing football.

    They are not just gonna go through the motions.

  • DennisAllensVisor

    “There’s going to be consequences to his actions”

    Not sure that sounds like cutting..

  • CVRaider

    I despise the raider coaches and would normally say give them more than one year. But lets be honest, they are the worst team in the nfl, from middle of the pack to last in one season. If they dont want a reputation of being a one and done organization when it comes to coaches…TOO BAD, YOU FIRED HUE AFTRT ONE SEASON, you already have that reputation. So please give me another excuse why these inept over their heads coches should not be fired.
    If its talent that made this team bad, well last time i checked they got rid of a lot of players and mcckenzie was such a great evaluator of talent. He hasnt brought in one player, his draft picks arent very good and he didnt make any trades worth a crap. Again, from middle of the pack to last in one season.

    Your right but Reggie needs to trade down and get more picks Te’o should still be there around pick 10-15

    Wasnt AL davis actually intrigued by TEBOW b4 the draft?

    Would have gotten alot more out of Tebow at the 8th spot then we have McClain lmao

    actually walter football list TEO as a 3down backer with the insticts/ speed to be used as pass rusher up the middle ala lewis and patrick willis

  • Dan78

    You guys think if we drafted JPP instead of McClain that we would have fudged up???

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I dont give a dayum about rex. that guy is a worse grandstander then hue jackson.

    I just know what i saw with tebow last year especially in the playoff game. Dont get it twisted. Nobody was gonna beat the pats last year except teams like balt, niners, or giants

    Any concerns that if we let Lechler go, Jano will struggle? I don’t think Shane has lost it, just don’t think he recovered well enough from that knee surgery. I’m also not sold on Marquette King. He had some good punts but also some bad line drives in preseason

    But I guess with the new draft cap put on picks, Its not as big of a risk as in the past…

    Point being, if the disaster that is the New York Jets can’t figure out how to use this guy, what makes you think DA and co could?

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Its not about figuring out how to use Tebow, its about rolling the dice and running a completly different offense.

    ——

    They couldn’t even figure out how to use Reese until they were forced to. I still remember in week 2 when Knapp called a deep sideline throw to Richard Gordon

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    WEll I thnk Tebow would be DA’s best bet at this point to save his job. He basically got him his job this year.

    being 1-4 before tebow raised all of their profiles. You need someone creative and willing to LET TEBOW PLAY as a starter though. Cant have knapp here.

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Dennis Allen’s job isnt in jeopardy to need saving.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    11/17/12: Te’o is having a tremendous senior season despite dealing with personal tragedies. He had eight tackles and two interceptions against Michigan, as well as forcing an interception by hitting the Denard Robinson as he threw. Te’o racked up 11 tackles against Stanford and did reasonably well defending gainst the Cardinal’s receiving tight ends.

    Te’o totaled 12 tackles and two passes broken up to go with a fumble return of eight yards versus Michigan State and power runner Le’Veon Bell. Te’o made a lot of tackles in run defense and was superb against the pass in zone coverage. He was snuffing out short passes throughout the game and doing well to tackle receivers quickly after the reception was made.

    Te’o has really improved his pass coverage in 2012 and helps his stock as a three-down linebacker. He hasn’t had a bad game all year. The senior has totaled 92 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, four passes broken up and six interceptions this season

    actually now has 7 ints.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Via walterfootball. I like this interesting part.

    Te’o has the skill set and experience to start immediately in the NFL. He has the size, speed and tackling technique to be a three-down linebacker. The senior has the athletic ability to function on third down and get deep in the middle of the field.

    Te’o has nice blitzing ability and closing speed as a pass-rusher. It is clear that he has the instincts for the position. Plus, Te’o is versatile for the next level; he has the bulk to be an inside linebacker in a 3-4 defense and the speed to play middle linebacker in a 4-3. As long as Te’o stays healthy, he should produce another quality season to be a safe first-rounder in the 2013 NFL Draft. “

    It would go a long ways to clearing that up if The Reggie stands up and tells us so tomorrow.

    We have seen how well rolling the dice, and playing a completely different offensive scheme worked this year,
