Raiders & MNF

Recommended Posts

Hey man how your doing.

I've alway wondered why is it while the Raiders was still playing in Los Angeles that they never hosted a MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL GAME. Was is because there was no light at the Coloseium at the time or what. :blink:

Well here is why the Coliseum was sooooooooooooooo big it never sold out so rather then have a black out for MNF in the LA market they did not have any Raider home games.

The blackout rule applies for every single game the NFL plays, even the Super Bowl. Of course, the Super Bowl will never be blacked out again and I think Super Bowl I, the only one that didn't sell out, is the only one that's ever been blacked out.

I'd also like to add that for the longest there's been a supposed "conspiracy" against the Raiders, and them not having any MNF games at the Coliseum would add fuel to that fire.

I think it's funny. Al Davis vs. the NFL makes so much sense, but Tank's explanation makes even more sense.

That very well maybe the reason, but also the reason I've heard, living here in Los Angeles, was because of the rowdy crowds as well. It wasn't until the final years in L.A. that the Coliseum had a reduced seating capacity, going from 92,000 to 67,000. But even then, the sellouts for Raiders (and Rams) home games were still pretty rare.

And you've just stumbled upon Occam's Razor. Simply put, the most likely explanation is normally the best one. Congratulations!

Too bad because I think everyone will agreed with me that there is alway special about having primetime NFL game in your own city. I'm mean if the Rams was still in LA that their game vs. the Steelers last month was going to be a big deal locally as I found when I was living in San Diego during the Bobby Ross era Chargers runs.

Yeah...it was so special that they retired Marshall Faulk's jersey in a desperate and cynical attempt to get fans to buy tickets. (Then they went and half-a$$ed the ceremony...making them look like fools and a joke shop operation to all watching in the process.) <_<

I can't tell if this is bad typing or bad translation.

If that was the case then why did they put MNF in Cleveland I mean the Browns fans are even crazier then the Raiders fan?

And BTW...

It's both....

I don't think Cleveland has a fan who goes by the moniker of "The Violator". :rolleyes: Seriously-Raider fans are much scarier than Browns fans.
