Seems the Raiders’ “gang appeal” skyrocketed when their team crashed and burned. Can’t recall gangbangers wearing Raider gear when they were among the consistently great teams in pro sports. Seems losers are attracted to losers.

What’s wrong with bangers making themselves more visually identifiable?

Someone should market a line of wear exclusively to such scumbags. A hat and shirt combo or something. Name of the gang, position in the chain of command, list of crimes committed, etc. Make them fully customizable to the individual tard.

I’ve been a Raider fan since about the ‘70 season, before the gangs took them over. Sad.

Gangs need to go. Davis was great in his day but now needs to hand the team over to someone else.

Bored late at night I needed to go to sleep...

So I turned on SWAT it is like cops but the SWAT runs.

One of the cops working along with the SWAT guys was wearing a VICKS Jersey.

I am no sports person but with the awful news surrounding this creep the Jersey Shirt with Vicks on the back stood out like a sore thumb.

So guess that cop ain’t so cool undercover with that get up anymore.

Yeah, I remember 15-16 years here in MN there was a kid who was killed for his Raiders starter jacket. Kind of one of those duhh articles.

About 20 years ago, I sold sporting goods stuff, including NFL merchandise. Raiders apparel was popular among a particular demographic.

It must have been as the Raiders have seemingly always drawn this element. My company had season tickets in LA for both the Rams and Raiders, plus I had season tickets for USC. The crowd for Raider games was a far different element then we saw at both the USC and Ram games.

We gave up the Raider tickets mainly because of the propensity for fights and altercations at their games.

Nice Raider fans are sort of like nice Muslims. They’re rare and they keep quiet about all the crimes being committed in their name.

But the Raiders lose cool points because they've been assimilated into the sanctioned and acceptable gang profile that is professional sports.

When college ball arrives there, I'll be done with football.

Here in Fresno, many sports bars refuse to show Raider games because of the excessive number of fights and police calls that occur.
