Pretty much what Blarney said.
And since I don't let it get me in that special place, I stay more fresh, find some fun in it, don't make rash decisions because well I'm not up against a tight spot and it's more emotion then anything else. I tend to stay more positive because of this.
I have a hard time understanding how the really negative people can put themselves through this. They must like it so that has to tell me a little bit about them for the real.
Somehow less the Shell year I can find a reason to watch. This year it's easy because I'm not expecting a ton of wins and I want to watch how we develop some pretty high-end players. So I'm pumped in a way just to see this weeks game, to see if we can make progress in several area's. Where someone else is red-hot pissed over a play, time and time again in the same game. Holy smokes! I'm just trolling water over here taking down another swig of brew after a bad play, I may have a comment, but it's not completely over the top. I just have such a poor appreciation for the person that completely over-reacts. The only time I still boil is a blatant ref mistake and that can happen in any game.
Last weekend I kept watching those passes and thinking "man this is so close" because a lot were just either a step or two behind or just way to hard to be caught. Yes there were a lot of drops too but I don't expect Walker, curry or Lelie to be here long anyway so them flubbing catches really makes no big deal to me. I just like seeing the opportunities for improvement.
yeah I get real tired of the losing. We can't get it together but I will still watch and support them...atleast they can only lose once a week so I will only feel like **** every sunday haha. But yeah don't spend money on a ruined product
Thanks for the comments everyone. The reason i get so pissed is because i love this team so much, and watching them get beat down like they do at times really sucks man. While i definitely know that life is so much more than some stupid game, i also like to see the team i love at least put up a fight. Im tired of al davis lying to us, im tired of not being able to get used to a head coach and his particular way of doing things, im tired of the players just giving up, and the whole blind faith thing is over for me. I love this team til death and beyond, but i wont continue to be a part of the herd, and just follow blindly. Prove that we'll be back AL!!! Prove that we'll be winners again!!! Can he do that?? I dont know... he hasnt proven it yet... God man.... its just a waste of time. How does he not see that this team is in complete shambles?? I stand by the fact that i think Al Davis should coach... then, he has noone to blame but himself. My whole point in this thread was to express my frustration, and ive done that. I will be watching on sunday, and im sure before the game ill have the same optimism i always have... i just get tired of the same 'ol stuff.
Yeah i still like em, wont waste money on em, but am here like all the rest of us Domestic Violence victims....
That's a really tough one bro. On one hand, I just can't turn my back on this team (buying season tickets, merchandise, etc.), on another, I am completely sick and tired of our losing ways over the past 5 + seasons. I'm scared that I'll eventually grow numb to all of the losing. As of this point in time though, the pain of losing is still there. I AM a Raider, and for example, 3/4 of my clothing is Raider-related (t-shirts, jerseys, shoes, socks, shorts, hats, pajamas, sweat pants, hoodies, etc.). I have a hard time not buying Raider gear when I see something I like. In any case, I'm torn. I don't really have any solution that would accurately display our displeasure to Davis. Not too sure he'd even care for what we'd have to say anyway. He honestly believes in what he's doing 110%. I admire him for his convictions, but it's just too bad that most of his decisions have been erratic and poor over the last half-decade or so. This is certainly a tough one, and one I can't seem to come up with an answer for.
I will continue to watch with unrealistic high hopes of not being utterly disappointed at the end of the game. There are some good players I enjoy watching and feel sorry for. I love wearing my Raider gear but don't like the comments I get from others. I'm kind of on a buying freeze right now myself.
I, too, have an emotional connection with this team. I hate to see them lose. Al Davis has been winning throughout most of his career and seems like he doesn't know how to handle a losing situation. His desperation is killing us more and more. But I don't see myself jumping ship... ever.
I have been upset with this team for at least a month now. The Raiders should be 3-2 but they cant find a way to finish the game in the 4th quarter. Im in high school and here it from everybody in school. Im friends with at least 11 Jet fans saying the raiders suck and thier gonna crush the raiders on sunday. Also im freinds with Cowboy,Eagle,Steeler,and god dam chief fans. Every1 of them talk s*** every monday.But i still have faith and pride for the raiders and will root for them every sunday!! But Al really needs to leave. Sorry my friends but our team the raiders will always be bad with Al as the owner. And he will be the owner until he dies.
im a freakin raider fan till the day i die.
no its ands or butts unless the butt belongs to haley berry.
