By Steve Corkran
Thursday, September 12th, 2013 at 12:08 pm in Oakland Raiders.

ALAMEDA – The Raiders regular-season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars sold out and will be televised locally,
A Raiders official confirmed Thursday that the Raiders sold out the game in advance of the league-mandated deadline of 72 hours before kickoff. The game is slated for Sunday at 1:25 p.m.
The Raiders reduced the seating capacity of the Coliseum for football games by almost 10,000 this offseason. They tarped off the upper deck on the east side of the stadium, as well as a few other upper-deck sections, to get capacity down to 53,286.
All but one home game last season sold enough tickets to avoid a blackout, when the Raiders were required to sell only 85 percent of their tickets to meet the blackout threshold.in place at the time.
The Raiders now have sold out 16 of their past 17 regular-season home games, dating to the start of the 2011 season.

    Newton was pegged as an athletic quarterback coming out of Auburn for his size (6-foot-5, 250 pounds) and rushing ability (he rushed for 1,473 yards as a junior).

    Cam Newton sucks. Terrelle Pryor is awesome.

    how many times do we have to go over this?

    Panthers will finish with the 2nd overall pick, behind Jags. Raiders are going 10-6 with TP2

    your opinion means nothing to me

    I like both of them and will root for both

    i have no need to elevate one over the other they are both the wave of the future

    Nix just let Mathis run right by him for the sack that effectively ended the game.

    ***

    @Gdog

    that is nowhere close to being accurate

    all 5 o-liners were blocking their tails off, plus McFadden.

    Barnes started with Mathis, then released to take on #52 Colts linebacker.

    I just posted the link of this replay on Monday – ask Jhill.

    >>>>

    Watch the play from the endzone with the coaches film.

    Nix’s assignment wasn’t Mathis, but his guy was taken out and Mathis nearly ran right into him… he ignored him to keep blocking his guy (who was already out of the play). It was moronic.

    Stabler’s stats are comparable to Namath’s. Both have a Super Bowl. Zero reason for Snake not to be in. Biggest joke in the HoF except maybe Cliff Branch.

    Except every game was sold out last year.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    sold out?!?!? Uh oh see whats happening the pryor affect!!!

    i posted here last year that one of the reasons for playing pryor would be financial as he would put butts in the seats, something palmer and later flynn could never do.

    they put butts on the toilet stool form sickened fans for having watched the play qb here

    of course people screamed that i did not know what i was talking about

    lol

    after 2 stars pryor is the back bone the heart and soul and the face of the franchise!!!!

  • papertiger418

    Just to be clear, we tarped off the seats instead of taking the 85% attendance threshold, right? Otherwise we would have had to share more revenue with the visiting team by lowering that threshold?

    So we “sold out” 100% of 53k seats and kept a higher % of the revenue from the game?

    I think I’m just confused now.

    I just watched it again from the endzone. Barnes pushed Mathis into Nix who completely ignored him then stood in front of dead air to block NOBODY.

    Barnes had great blocking to take on two guys… agreed.

    Nix blocked NOBODY that wasn’t already blocked.

    I can post a screen shot of Nix standing there blocking nobody as Mathis goes straight to Pryor is you wish…

    the real question is why you and others need to examine qbs for thier skin color

    is it possible for a person that lloks like me to cheer for a qb that looks like me with out having to do with skin color? is it possible that i just like the way he plays?

    I mean after all he has completely destroyed the nfl record books over his first two seasons.

    he tagged his name in flat black spray paint and owns guys like manning marino elway and any other rookie and 2ns yera qb you want to name

    just imagine if he had wr’s to throw to

    ENGLANDRAIDER – I wasn’t referring to Suh. Those type of fines need to be done. I was referring to some plays where players make a simple tackle with the shoulder but are still getting fined.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    So Doc Blowhard is only 50-50 on TP crashing ?

    I’d have thought he’d be 100% certain of it.

    I mean after all, he is the worst passer in the NFL.

    Doc Blowhard, even if TP does eventually crash and burn, that won’t change the fact that you were completely wrong about him being cut, traded, 3rd string, and never starting an NFL game.

    Your inability to understand that TP is by far the best option for THIS team to score points, shows you don’t have a clue about football or the RAIDS.

    You and the other myopians can blather on about QB rating and completion percentage until you’re blue in the face.

    You don’t know jack.

    You’ll be doing yourself and the blog a big favor if you keep your word about only posting on game day.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Why is anyone bringing up PALMER?? the guy is long gone.. HE DIDNT want to be here and his agent proved it by forcing his way out.

    He did ok on SUNDAY.. i watched the whole AZ.. he played like he played for us… had a few turnovers and fumbled in the pocket taking sacks. He would be whopped on behind this line.

    He is getting paid what 12 million ??? for that NAH

    I’ll take PRYOR for 500 k and some energy please. 2 starts.. ROOOOOM TO grow.. and POSITIVE MEDIA COVERAGE all accross the board. NFL NETWORK, ESPN.. JOHN MADDEN ” PRYOR GIVES THEM HOPE”

  • RaiderRockstar

    Mathis is already through the line before Nix is disengaged from his man …

  • Kirk

    Landry kept hurling himself at Pryor and missing.

    He connected with Moore, and it should have been a penalty for leading with his head.

  • RaiderFanMikeP

    now WIN!! when was the last time the Raiders won a home opener?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    chad henne is a statue he couldnt out run a fir hydrant. he has strong arm but isnt a qucik decision maker ( could be cause to question his intelligent level. Chad is career back up kyle boller type. better than matt flynn mind you but a poor mans version of carson palmer.

    No mjd either, no blackmon, ther offense should not score more than 7 points. if they do tarver and allen have lots of explaining to do.

    The raider offense will have thier way with the jags. bradly will have no answer for our wave of the future qb pryor and his devout followers, the raider offense

    i see the score being something like 24-7

  • Al_is_theraiders

    still have to sell 85% of the reduced capacity…

  • RaiderRockstar

    I’m not blaming any Raider O-Liners or McFadden for that blitz that got Pryor sacked.. there weren’t any guys loafing around when they should have been pass protecting

    I agree with Pryor himself. just gotta throw it away.

    Also, Pryor in the shotgun and Indy was showing blitz. A more experienced Pryor will change the playcall and handoff to McFadden

    You can’t see what happened from that angle.

    Barnes pushed Mathis into Nix who ignored him to help block the tackle that Wiz already had contained.

    Do you want me to post the screen shots from the endzone?

    It was Nix’s fault.

    Unless you think on olineman should ignore players that are going unblocked to the QB to help block players already contained or something…

    BTW… the hold for Jano was PERFECT. King spun the ball laces out right before he kicked it. Text book.

    think Nix is gonna be able to contain Robert Mathis and somebody else at the same time?

    U ONLY like black qbs.

    And u like ALL of them.

    We notice it and u say WE are noticing skin color.

    Then u say its possible that a black person just happens to like a black qb.

    But then throw in ur obnoxious comment about black spray paint.

    Ur an idiot that wants desperately wants to rub it in everyone’s faces if a black qb succeeds as if we are upset about it.

    Tits Allen has plenty of explaining to do regardless of how many points the Jags score.

    It will be the ultimate irony if despite his mishandling of TP, that TP winds up saving his azz.

    Worst HC in the NFL.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    there was no time to change the play call, the clock was runing down and pryor had to take the snap, at the snap the o line was toast and so was pryor

    THIS IS ALLENS FAULT.

    he needed to call a time out at 1st and goal from the 8. this would have allowed the raiders to set the play calls and give pyor the audibles and line calls

    inexcusable

    allen is a boob
