Raiders 34 saints 30 that's all I have to say about that.
I think the stadium atmosphere in Oakland looks awesome. I think seeing dozens and dozens of people dressed up like a "zombie theme park" is pretty damned cool.
If a grown - *** man feels like heading to the game dressed like he came out of a horror film, so be it. He paid for his ticket; he's allowed to.
I just wish Oakland got more prime time games on or around Halloween. IMO, if the Lions and Cowboys are going to get Thanksgiving, the Raiders should get the prime-time game closest to Halloween... just my opinion, of course.
It's more than just camera time for me when I dress up. Is it cool to see yourself in TV? **** yeah! But 99% of the time, NFL Films goes to the normal looking fans than myself, Gorilla Rilla, Toozak, AfroDisiac, Raider Jerry, Firewolf, Oaktown Pirate, Rhinestone Raider, Clawz, Papa Funk, Raider Soulja, Seņor Raiderman (I can go on and on an on of my friends' names here). My point is, we do it for the PERSONA of the fan base, not TV time. Watch ANY game and you see normal fans in jerseys, shirts etc 99% more than us superfans.
One of the main reasons for me is the kids love it. I can't tell you how many kids come up to me at games and want their picture with me. I'm a roll model and as such I hand out silver pirate coins. Kids need positive influences in their life outside of home and school and if I can help out in ANY way, it's all worth it. Even in KC I have little kids who are chiefs fans come up for a picture. They love it and think its "cool" and I can guarantee they'll never forget the kindness I show them.
There's so much negativity out there that its good to show kids there are adults with different views that can still be nice. I know the first time I met a Superfan, I'll never forget it.
So before you start saying we're all Halloween freaks that want attention, just remember that we do a lot for the community.
Exactly. We sucked been medicore ever since we went to LA.Quote:

**** you mean? They were basically still an OAK team. They were still practicing in OAK in 82. I aint tryin to **** on LA. Not even but before the Raiders left Oakland there was a year long waiting list for tickets. I always saw LA colisuem empty myself JS.Quote:

I dont dress up nothing against people that do i guess... I just want to be a loud fan base. If you dress up it should be scary especially no paint on the face but what would be epic is if everyone had a classic mask good mask ( leather face, micheal myers, jason, freddy etc) the paint and pirate thing well to me are just not scary, which is why were the laughing stock of the NFL but hey those people are having fun well thats all that matters. (Seriously)
