Lifelong Raider fan here, and I’m still wearing the 1987 throwback Bo Jackson jersey I got for XMas from my brother.
Just when I think Al Davis can’t further surprise me, he goes and fires a coach that actually made it somewhat fun again to be a member of Raider Nation.
I live in the East Bay (not a fan of either franchise) but follow the local teams...Cable had some off the field issues last year, but made an 8-8 season and was undefeated in the AFC Western Division. A fluke loss to Jacksonville and crappy loss to the 49’ers, they would be in the playoffs.
Al Davis needs to find a nurse and drool watching Gunsmoke and Johnny Carson reruns, not own an NFL team.
A couple of years ago.. the Raiders were the WORST NFL team since the expansion Bucs... Two years later, Cable has turned them into a feared team NO ONE wants to play.
If not for the STUPID draft picks that Davis forced... they might well be in the playoffs THIS year..
Absolutely ASSININE move....
So glad I’m NOT a Raiders fan.... anymore.
