Interesting stance taken by the NFL regarding their fan policy.

Raiders fans are already putting this rule to the test...

Man shot outside Raiders-Cardinals game

BTW, our very own Bucfan was at this game.

Just in from from the "NJTank school of journalism". Huh?

Jumping to immediate conclusions. Not that it was/was not gang related or random, it had to be NFL fandom related. You have madfe conclusions before AZ law enforcement.

While I agree with this statement, when it comes to Raiders fans, when the shoe fits...

BTW, I love the Oakland Raiders. I'm a Bucs fan, but I grew up in Northern Califronia and was born in the Bay Area. Ive been to a ton of Raiders games and have worn Raiders gear the majority of the time (Other than when they play Tampa, which was a HUGE mistake). But the way Raiders fans acted at tonight's game was downright shameful. I've never even seen Raiders fans act that poorly at the Coliseum. They reminded me of Dodgers fans, which is just sad.

Well I didn't watch the game because I could give two craps about pre-season football, but your post seems like your inferring there were other incidents during the game.

Also who in their right mind thinks lets see I'm going out to a football game tonight, think I got everything, but I feel like I'm forgetting something. Oh yeah, my gun.

I swear, I will never go to a Cardinals game if the Raiders is the visiting team...

I do hope Bucfan had a safe time.

Jake Locker and Ryan Tannehill will be starting this year.

Locker is really not a shock. I thought he looked really good in limited playing time last year. If they didn't start him now, I'm not really sure what they would be waiting for. Tannehill on the other hand I find a little surprising just because of how inexperienced he is even by rookie QB standards, and Matt Moore is at the very least a serviceable starter.

Speaking of rookies...

...Yes, it's only been pre-season, and yes, only two (halves of) games at that but...this kid Andrew Luck has looked pretty good out there. Granted, I ain't get to watch much of him in college, but in what little bit I've seen of him, dude looks like he might just be the real deal. And already it's apparent he possesses a dimension Peyton Manning didn't and never could have on his best day: sneaky athleticism. He doesn't appear afraid to run with it if he has to, and seems to not mind contact. Also, he's got some really good feet under him, and a good bit of zip on his short-to-medium-range throws. He let one go against the Steelers that looked straight Manning-esque...right on the receiver's fingertips, down and away from the defender. And he did it with four or five Steelers defenders in his grille.

Again, only preseason...we'll see how this keeps up when the games start to count in a few weeks. But if first impressions in the blue and white mean anything, he's gon' be a good one. (Really, though, it's not like he has a choice, considering whose shoes he's trying to fill.)
