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.

    A little over cast this morning with a chance of whiney liberals.

    Insurance companies and PC dogooders will destroy the NFL. It is on its way out anyway.

    Well, purple after taking the blue pill!

  • Ron Mexico

    Right! You keep pimping white white people and you claim to be full of love. More like full of chit!

  • MaddenRaider

    Well, white white people had it coming.

    It must be nice to always blame someone else for your failures.

    Custer was a liberal? That’s news.

    In other news, I wasn’t aware that Pryor had turned down the Steelers offer to draft him.
    He must’ve known Raiders were interested or else that could’ve been a costly decision.

  • R8erEduc8er

    Repubs are obstructionists and Dems have no balls!

  • MaddenRaider

    I’m still in denial of being a failure. Haven’t made it there yet.

    FACT: Pîmps dress up as Tom Cable for Halloween.

    I knew we would play a East coast team in London, but its the Dolphins, not like we ever beat them in the US anyway, might have a chance across the pond.

    Why would Pryor want to back up Big Ben for 10 years? coming to Oakland was a no-brainer. However, he probably thought we would attempt to develop him sometime before Year #3 after the 2nd preseason game !!

  • The_Judge37

    Or he figured he’s never get to be a QB in Shittsburg and they’d probably just convert him to WR.

  • Dakota

    What? Please explain? They offered to draft him when?

  • Dakota

    He would be the Steelers best WR right now had they drafted him.

    Steelers at Raiders

    MDS’s take: The Steelers have a history of dropping games on the road against bad Raiders teams, but I don’t think it will happen this time. Pittsburgh looks like it’s turning things around and should roll against a Raiders team that isn’t playing particularly well in any phase of the game.

    MDS’s pick: Steelers 24, Raiders 10.

    Florio’s take: Another week, another once great rivalry that has lost its luster. Pittsburgh is starting to get on a roll; the Raiders aren’t as bad as we thought they’d be but still not good enough.

    Florio’s pick: Steelers 20, Raiders 13.

    the Raiders logo is racist against white pirates.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Don’t know but Dan Snyder always sites a vote amongst Native Americans that he says showed 8 out of 10 did not find the name offensive.

  • Dakota

    The Washington take your money and flush it down the toilet Skins.

  • The_Judge37

    Yeah, this is not a must win game at all.

    “Notwithstanding the protests of activists, a 2002 poll commissioned by Sports Illustrated found that 75% of those American Indians surveyed had no objection to the Redskins name. The results of the poll have been criticized by American Indian activists due to Sports Illustrated’s refusal to provide polling information (e.g. how participants were recruited and contacted, if they were concentrated in one region, if one ethnic group is over represented and the exact wording and order of questions). But in 2004, a poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania essentially confirmed the prior poll’s findings, concluding that 91% of the American Indians surveyed in the 48 states on the mainland USA found the name acceptable and setting out in detail the exact wording of the questions.[45]“

    I support Dan Snyder’s disdain to be PC and cower to the Bob Costas’ of the world.
    Last I checked, he sells a bazillion dollars of merchandise a year, nobody is boycotting or suing his team.
    So F them all I say. Washington REDSKINS for life.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA. The entire knowledge and accomplishments of the world are 95% the accomplishments of white people.

    Washington Bullets always worked for me. Maybe they should just change the name from the Redskins to old NBA name. Washington Bullets was the most appropriate mascot name in all of sports.

    would be more politically correct to end the profit wars in the middle east.

    The Washington Bills, except instead of the buffalo they have a $ sign.

    I support the change of name simply for my disdain of the Redskins organization, players, coaches and fans.
