Raiders learn of their London opponent

The league announced Thursday morning that the Raiders will host the Miami Dolphins in one of three games played in London in 2014.
The Falcons and Lions are playing, as well as the Jaguars and Cowboys. The uniqueness of the Raiders opponent is that the Dolphins come from within the AFC. Typically, the NFL prefers teams that play in London be from opposing conferences.
More on this later, perhaps with a comment from coach Dennis Allen and a player or two.

    *trying to comprehend* *gives up*

    The QB must be sequestered and he must be sequestered hard!

  • DJ Johnny

    Chicago “Food Stamp Recipients” would be a bad choice for a nickname.

  • Ron Mexico

    I totally agree. Being called a democrat is down right disrespectful. SilverandBlack666 is a die hard liberal.

  • DJ Johnny

    THAT would be awesome.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    You have a point. Should have said “TRIES to talk like an inner-city teenager.” He’s about as convincing as Vanilla Ice.

  • Ron Mexico

    Please, your boy shut down the government. And it’s more than just poor people getting free health care. You need to include illegals too!

    I wonder how many native americans are offended by the football team name “Redskins” versus all the nerdy white people looking for the next cause to support or nearest protest. Me thinks the 2nd group far outweighs the 1st

  • The_Judge37

    And they still get paid even when they don’t produce results.

  • MaddenRaider

    Oh, so you want MORE mascots that would offend minorities, as opposed to bringing in some that would offend white people to make all things equal.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Really? It was John Boehner who wouldn’t let the continuing resolution come up for a vote. What party does he belong to again?

  • The_Judge37

    That’s because Native Americans don’t exist anymore.

  • RediaR

    Well yeah, the native American population numbers aren’t exactly booming.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    so it’s a non-issue?

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    so why all the drama, then?

  • Papertiger

    Wouldn’t be so different from Snyder’s current roster…

  • DJ Johnny

    Ok… how about the St.Louis “Trash” which shows a hapless, no teeth, white kid on the logo?

  • Papertiger

    Atlanta TrailBlazers of Tears?

  • RediaR

    Being called a democrat is like a kick in the balls.
    Being called a republican is having your balls chopped off and fed to you.

  • The_Judge37

    Simply to troll the Washington Redskins. Isn’t that enough?

  • MaddenRaider

    “nerdy white people”.

    Implication: Racism is masculine. okay….

  • Ron Mexico

    Exactly!

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    hey now – they bested Matt Flynn & Josh McCown recently !!

  • Ron Mexico

    They offered to fund the government. Your boy refused so he could get his way! Like a child!

  • MaddenRaider

    That’s because white people haven’t killed them all….yet. But I imagine this issue might be what pushes white people over the edge and prompts them to do it.

  • MaddenRaider

    Vanilla Ice was more talented than most commercial rappers today.

  • RediaR

    If there is anything this country has learned over the last hundred years it’s that the voice of the minority should be smashed into submission and trivialized.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    Since the Redskins already have the “Hogettes” , should they change the team name to Washington Pigs? or does that offend fat people? America = land of the free or land of the sensitive aholes?

  • MaddenRaider

    Why don’t we say “black trash”? Only saying white trash would imply that white people who aren’t successful are “trash”, discarded, while minorities that are unsuccessful are par for the course, it seems.

  • Ron Mexico

    Still blaming whitey are we? You need to get a life.

  • R8erEduc8er

    Good post. You don’t belong here.

  • Papertiger

    The Washington Boars, here to bring home the bacon!

  • R8erEduc8er

    Everyone on this blog except those 3 have the same feelings.

  • RediaR

    It’s a dumb name to begin with. Even if it wasn’t as obviously offensive as Blackskins or Yellowskins would be it is still extremely stupid. Pick a better nickname anyway.

    Tradition is the excuse used when all reasonable arguments have been quashed. Find a better name. Move forward.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    fire drill in 20 minutes, lads. RACE!

  • MaddenRaider

    ok, so then who killed most of the native Americans? The teletubbies?

  • RediaR

    I wouldn’t put it past them.

  • The_Judge37

    That name is not Kosher

  • Papertiger

    The other problem with changing the Redskins name is that it throws off the whole Cowboys & Indians dynamic in the NFC East.

  • RediaR

    What’s the weather like on your planet?

  • MaddenRaider

    “nerdy white people”

  • RediaR

    Who gives a fack?

    Lets keep the tradition of glorifying race wars!

    who killed most of the native Americans?
    ***
    father time. they intermarried with YOU PEOPLE and now they are just considered “Americans” – same as AFRICAN or MEXICAN americans. isn’t that a label that’s offensive? Arent they just Americans too? I mean my family descended from Wales back in the day. I’m not called a Welsh American

  • Ron Mexico

    No. Liberals did it.

  • inonewordraider

    U wonder,means like me u dont kno. Maybe its offensive and if it is cant blame those offended for bein upset

  • Ron Mexico

    What color are you?

  • MaddenRaider

    Well that’s a nice spin on it…

  • Papertiger

    The LA Mestizos!

  • The_Judge37

    I’m a decendent from Real Native Americans. When ever i go to the Reservation Casinos they call me “Chief Splitting Tens”

  • MaddenRaider

    The color of love, Ron Mexico. The color of love.
