The Autumn Wind
The Autumn Wind is a pirate
Blustering in from sea
With a rollicking song he sweeps along
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.
People often complain about Raider Fans. We’re one of the most criticized set of fans in the world, across any sport. They say we’re bad people, we’re rowdy as hell, we’re violent, we’re crazy, they call us degenerates and whatever else. To that Raider fans always say, “And? What are you gonna do about it?” We’re OK with that being our image and what people think of us. We prefer you think that of us. We like what we’re about. We dont want to be nice, we dont want to be your friend. We dont want you to not hate us. We want to be hated by every one. Because we hate every one.
Read the words Ive posted above. It will tell you every thing we’re about. The team and the fans. We are not the hero’s. We are the villains. We’re coming to rob you of your gold, your women, your pride, all that. We want it all. We want to hurt you. Even if we lose the game, we’re going to win the fight. You call it poor sportsmanship. We call it FUCK YOU! Thats OK with us. We’re the only team in the league that voted against the anti touch down celebration rules. Its really not a game or an act. Its what it is.
I dont care how much the Raiders lose, people talk a lot of shit to me. But Im not moving. It is what it is. And when we start winning again. Because, we WILL be on top again.. The shit I will be talking will be epic. Trust me!
Im optimistic about this year, but if you ask my friends, Im optimistic about every year, until I see different. Last year we didnt lose to any team in our division. We may not have gone to the playoffs, but we didnt lose to the Chiefs, Broncos or Chargers. So this year I want to see a repeat of that and more. Its time to make waves, we’ve been down long enough.
I PRAY they move back to LA. I’d feel kinda bad for Oakland. But it is what it is. They would have a brand new stadium and be in a market/city to attract better players, no matter what our record. That would be fucking great, The Lakers and The Raiders would be right next to each other. A dream come true!
