Well, @donna Glover, you're exactly the kinda gal I wear my plunkett Jersey for! Plus, without that bull tuck rule, we'd have what the pats got for the last 17 years. Just like the immaculate reception; the league hated Al, and found ways to keep the raiduhs down as punishment. Enjoy your shamefully overhyped franchise.

I don't care if they play in Madagascar, and never win another game in the existence of the NFL. I'll still bleed silver and black, and so will my kids, and their kids and so on. F the boys, pats & their stats, and lame ass Dan fouts!

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

Wow sour grapes indeed. You can go on and on about the Raiders and the Davis family but maybe you should ask yourself why the worthless Mayor Of Oakland Libby Schaff did absolutely nothing before the Las Vegas deal was on the table. Noooooo! she was too busy putting out Amber Alerts for the illegal aliens and kissing their butts while all the money went right out the door. When the Sacramento Kings were about to leave town Mayor Kevin Johnson showed real leadership and got in the middle of things. Libby Schaff did absolutely nothing! So while you are eager to put the Raider Organization down maybe you should point the finger in her direction also. Dont really care about your sour grapes! RAIDER NATION ALIVE AND WELL!

@Donna Glover the raiders have 3 Super Bowl wins the bears only have one. They tried to build a stadium in Oakland but the damn politicians and the athletics prevented them from doing it. The athletic dont even want to be in Oakland they want to move to San Jose but the mlb dont let them, theyre pretty much stuck in Oakland. Stop being the psycho ex girlfriend who cant stand seeing the other succeed in life. Whether you accept it or not the raiders will dominate once again. Raider Nation for life Just Win Baby

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

Time will tell whether the Raiders will succeed in Vegas. Im done after 45 years of being a supporter though. Raider Nation has always been corny to me, and will be put to the test. A weekend in Vegas will cost what my season tickets do.

Interestingly, Jason Cole reported that Davis agreed to defend and indemnify the NFL and the other 31 clubs in any litigation arising out of the move. Im having trouble believing theyd be that stupid, frankly, but you never know. Each club and the league will hire the most expensive lawyers in town, nevermind any potential verdict following an astronomically expensive jury trial, if it gets that far, and Davis will pay for it all, if the report is true.

At the end of the day, if youre not proud of being from Oakland, and they are the only home grown franchise, they should leave and never mention the word Oakland again. The only upside of the move has been how it has revealed so many Raider fans that travel to and tailgate in Oakland, who actually hate the city. Funny how they never mentioned that before.

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

Oakland native, daughter of a season ticket holder pre-move to LA, I hate the Raiders organization. Al Davis' legacy lives on. He treated his host city, Oakland like garbage and could care less about the fans. I never wanted the Raiders to come back, when they did, they crapped over the Athletics who held down the ballpark for 15 years alone. Only to have it ruined by the construction-obstruction of Mt. Davis that even the Raiders do not use. Laugh all you want, this Oakland gal is a Patriots fan. How many Super Bowls have the Raiders won? Steelers, Cowboys, 49'ers, Pats, Bears all have dynasties. Raider have hype.

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

You clearly haven't spent any time out of the east bay. The Raiders could move to San Diego and sell out the Q every game. They have huge fan bases and they will travel once the Raiders play in a real stadium. I travel up to the Coli 8 times a year and and I can't wait to go to Vegas. I was born in the east bay and the Coli is an embarrassment. They've lost the Warriors & the Raiders, and the A's will be gone soon too. Nothing is ever getting built with the joke that is the city & the county.

The NFL jumped the shark guys. Don't let it mean so much. It is all run thru Park Ave. now.

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

Like his big brother in the White House (Trump), Mark Davis is wrong on every single issue. It must be the tan and the hair. Davis forgets that the main thing that built and cultivated the Raider mystique was WINNING. When Al moved the Raiders to LA in 1985, they were arguably the most successful franchise in all of sports over the previous 20 years. In the last 20 years, they are among the least successful franchises in sports. The Raiders arrived in LA about the same time as gangster rap hit the music scene and their colors became part of that genre. However, fan attendance in LA is always dependent upon what else is going on that day. LA folks support three sports franchises, the Dodgers, the Lakers and USC football. Beyond that, they will turn out if it is the place to be at the hot game of the week, but if not, there are plenty other things to do. Las Vegas is a pipe dream and one of the shakiest set of financial assumptions ever compiled to justify moving a professional sports team and building a stadium. Approval of this charade by NFL owners reflects their greedy desire to collectively be involved in on line gaming. It was Jerry Jones, not Mark Davis who sold this Raider move to Las Vegas to the other NFL owners. Jones and Robert Kraft (New England) already have millions invested in this growing industry and the other owners want a piece of the action. At the end of the day, if you live foul, the universe will not reward you. Mark Davis is very foul and delusional. His arrogance and stupidity dooms him to many more years of losing seasons in Vegas. Nobody deserves it more than him. He and his sorry franchise cannot leave town fast enough. Asta la vista baby!

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

Stop taking down my comments because you dont want the writers feelings to be hurt. Improve the quality by writing about a team you are objective about. Even if it wasnt intentional its blatant sour grapes. Try again, seriously.

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

You should write about a team you are objective about. Sour grapes article. Obvious the fan in you is hurting and wants the team to fail. Of course the rating in media arent very good rn theyve been losing for years . Give me an article that isnt filled with shots at the team because the writer is crying about their move. We get it. I couldnt even read the second half of page 2 as it was so clearly written by someone who is upset about their relocation.

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

Lol talk about butt hurt. Of course the ratings arent as high as those teams. Those teams all made the playoffs this year. This article just comes off as sour grapes honestly. Didnt even bother reading the second half of page 2 as it was clearly written by someone who wants to see the raiders fail after they move. Write about a team you are objective about.
