You just wait for next season, we're sold out of season tickets and ready to go, and not afraid of going to the nasty raider boys on October 22nd. Especially after today reading about your plans to block block and block some more next season, those sound like exciting tactical play!

Its quite sad to see this happen time and time again !

Firstly i'm 'amazed' at all the Cards fans who are suddenly here, fair play if you've been around a long time.

But you've surely had the mick taken out of you for a long long long time so you know how it feels. So when another team is down in the dumps why do you have to act like the other idiots who felt so good in knocking your team for years ???

Always the case isnt it, tons of losing seasons and not a peep, some hope now for this season and the future and the trash talking starts !

This sites brilliant for looking at a lot of career stats for offensive players...

http://www.pro-football-reference.com/

http://www.pro-football-reference.co...s/raiindex.htm

Link above shows every season and the offensive stats

Plus if you go to....

http://www.raidersonline.org/

Theres a brilliant list of Raider greats on the right hand side. Has all the Raider Hall of Fame players, and a list of 'not to be forgotton' which lists some excellent characters and players. Such as Lyle Alzado (one mean bloke !), Carl Weathers (in there just because he was Apollo Creed ) and many others.

If you go to a Raider game you'll meet a lot of veterans in the tail gate party, great stars from the 70's and early 80's.

Bo Jackson was a phenomenal athlete, and if he'd been able to keep playing he'd be in the Pro Football and Pro Baseball Halls of Fame. He's in the College Football Hall of Fame from his outstanding college career. Sadly his career was cut short by injury, and he's not likely to make either Pro Hall of Fame.

Jack Tatum was a hard-nosed player, and the contraversy regarding his (then legal) tackle on Patriots' Darrel Stingley in 1978 pre-season remains to this day. He is not likely to be enshrined because of the injury to Stingley and his reluctance to apologise.

Jim Otto is often seen around there, I understand. Lincoln Kennedy is always there too. PSJ will tell you who he's seen or met there.

'm sure I read somewhere that Tatum had had one (or maybe even both) of his legs amputated, or did I imagine it?!!
I also read that comments he made about the tackle had affected his HOF prospects.
