Three rings, five Super

can’t handle the truth.

Only 9 wins in 2 years; only 6 winning seasons in 17 years; you can't handle the truth. The Raiders stopped intimidating people in the mid 80's. In the 70's and early 80's if the Raiders were 9-7 it was a disaster. Now its' a good season. I've been a Raider fan since the 1970 season when I was 5 years old. Thiese aren't the Raiders that I knew. I know it will never be the same but look back on the glory years. That's what Raider football was all about. Not this crap.

Three AFC West titles and one Super Bowl berth in the past six seasons isn't the end of the world to me. That's my truth.

I'm not going to paint lipstick on a toad and pretend that the past three years have been wonderful. Nor am I going to pretend that the Raiders haven't done anything lately.

you know what they say about the road less traveled...

Gruden to the Bucs,
Sapp basking on Oakland beach,
how's that working out?

Ski throws down the haiku! Perfect form, too. Nice.

Look, you got me on Super Bowl scoreboard, at least in this decade. You won. I blacked out the score, just like I blacked out my abduction by aliens.

Sapp's working out better than Garner and Brown, but not as well as Gruden.

Oakland beaches?

Gruden left Raiders for Bucs
Won a Super Bowl that was fixed
Tagliabue, Gruden, Callahan; lover's triangle.
