as i raider fan im still living off the glory of going to the super bowl 12 years ago
and i dont care if that's pathetic!
i was there in qualcomm, man. i felt the fire of that halftime show
very first play of the game- woodson got a pic i was sooo ******g hyped... after that?
but lets remember how we even got there
in '00's afc championship, tony siragusa belly flopped on rich gannon and took him out of the game
OH WANNA TALK ABOUT 2001 AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME?
well, i dont... brady. tuck. rule. (srs **** every raider fan remembers where they were when this happened, it's our 9/11)
whatever. 2002 is a new year, and we make it to the super bowl
who are we playing? the guys we traded our coach to (how the **** that is even possible, is beyond me)
well, maybe thats not so bad... oh wait what's that? our starting center had a ******g manic episode and goes missing
we were the lambs brought for slaughter
from wiki:"The most damaging piece of evidence is NFL Films footage of Tampa Bay defensive back John Lynch telling his teammates during the game that almost all of the plays ran by Oakland's offense were plays that Gruden (who that week even played the part of "Rich Gannon" by playing QB with the scout-team offense) specifically told them to look out for. Better still for the Buccaneers was that Oakland hadn't changed their audible-calling signals that Gruden himself had installed, thus tipping off plays repeatedly."
rough life as a raider fan
our franchise is a tragedy
