GQ – Raider Fans are the 4th Worst in American Sports

According to GQ Magizine, Oakland Raider fans are the 4th worst in American sports.. WHAT ?? They just lost MY subscription…If I had one, I mean.. According to the article, Raider fans are ”Hell-raisers, gangbangers, and inveterate knife-lickers all of whom firmly believe that skipping town for an away game is well worth the parole violation.” YIKES.. First off, my parole was up a while ago, so I am good on that.. Secondly, and more importantly, how does passion and pride amount to being a “bad” fan??

Because of this supposed image problem Raider fans have, the article says it may be causing some of the away team’s fans to stay away from Oakland when their team plays the Raiders. It also may be causing some members of the Raider Nation who have never been to a game to stay away from Oakland as well. PLEASE.. Has the writer of the article ever been to Cleveland Browns Stadium when the Browns play the Steelers? It is no different there or at any other NFL stadium when rivals play each other.. Since returning back to Oakland in 1995, the Raiders have had over 60 % of their home games blacked out. Compare that to a team like Buffalo, who have had only two blackouts since 2006. Both teams have struggled to win games, but only the Raiders have struggled to sell out those games. Somehow this article is saying that McAfee doesn’t sell out because of RaiderNation..

    The Autumn Wind is a pirate
    Blustering in from sea
    With a rollicking song he sweeps along
    swaggering boisterously
    His face is weather beaten
    He wears a hooded sash
    With his silver hat about his head
    And a bristly black moustache
    He growls as he storms the country
    A villain big and bold
    And the trees all shake and quiver and quake
    As he robs them of their gold
    The Autumn wind is a Raider
    Pillaging just for fun
    He’ll knock you ’round and upside down
    And laugh when he’s conquered and won.

    The Grateful Dead Stealie is the weirdest thing in this photo. Dude doesn’t really look like a Deadhead.
