I never thought I'd see the day where the Raiders would be this bad, it seems as the team has lost their identity and they play without passion.

Still whining, and doing a great job of it.

2004 would have been the time to say "I never thought I'd see the day where the Raiders would be this bad"

But don't let me be the one to tell you how late you were.

And I mean no disrespect to Raiders fans. Turns out this Browns fan has been converted from a fan of his own team, to a basher of others. Understandable I guess.

September 18, 2012  08:07 AM ET

No, I like the Raiders, the Raiders that used to play mean, physical and intimidating football. This Raiders team is soft and unemotional. Browns fan yes, Now can you PLEASE, QUIT WHINING!

Please enlighten me about the merits of being an internet message board resident antagonist. It doesn't seem to be a terribly honorable vocation.

No, that would be the 2006, 2-14 season. Aaron Brooks. Andrew Walter. Just nasty.

Wasn't that the season that caused the drafting of Mr. Purple Drank?
All bling All the time. Roll Royce's and ankle length fur coats.

$45 million on a codeine addict, old Al had really lost it then, told all his coaches to pamper the spoiled idiot AFTER he fired that bum Lane Kiffen. When obviously Lane was the only one to get ANYTHING out of him.
According to Forbes magazine the Raiders have been operating in the red ever since.

Yep. At that point, anything looked better than Brooks or Walter. Lord was that wrong.

Only three NFL franchises are valued at less than the Detroit Lions, according to Forbes Magazine.

In its annual list of the football's most valuable teams, the Lions rank No. 27 in the league at a value of $855 million. Only the Atlanta Falcons ($837M), Buffalo Bills ($805M) and Oakland Raiders ($785M) rank lower.

According to the report, Detroit pulled in $231 million in revenue last season, tied for the last in the league with the St. Louis Rams. And when it comes operating income (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), only the Oakland Raiders (-$15.2M) lost more than Detroit (-$4.6M).
