    there are plenty raider forums, but I have yet to access one like this.

    I agree about the gloating, but when you hear the news weeks or days in advance, and others criticize you, it is good to make it known that it is fact, not just words that someone is trying to make money off of.
    for those who come and post, read what they read, or do whatever it is they do to come here without expecting to pay a cent, yet only complain about ads and such, makes one wonder why they continue to go??

    If you hate Burger king, yet love In and out, do you make a daily trip to Burger king, and walk thru the sitting area, look at the menu then complain that it is dirty and the food sucks?

    You guys are nerds. So if you only have x amount of posts it makes your opinion any less important? Even someone with 0 posts can see how lame this premium/non premium debate is. Quit being a cyber-bully.

    I think its the gloating that most non premium members have a problem with. There are a few Premi's who seem to go over board with it and I can see how that could rub some people the wrong way. I paid for premium to support the site and I do appreciate the perks of being a premium member but I don't gloat about it and I don't think it makes me a better fan, in any way shape or form.

    $4million?? I guarantee he'll squander it in a year if not sooner! Like clockwork.
    He'll care before he even turns 26 and no ones returning his phone calls.

    Fu*k him. Cut him. Another bum and cancer on and off the field.
    He's gone in the offseason. Roloando does not want to be here, the Raiders don't want him anymore and the fan base has had enough with him. He is a bust. Let another team deal with his bull****. Trading or cutting him will save the Raiders money and you might be able to get a 6th rounder for him in a trade. I like the way the Raiders are playing this out. They get some money back while not having to pay him for his suspension and possibly a draft pick in the off season. No more Al Davis protection! All Raiders and coaches are on notice! You produce or your out.

    well on topic, I now have a new hatred for McClain. I tried to back this guy in his early seasons, and now I can't believe I did. I shouldn't hate a player because its just a game, but when there are players that are working twice as hard and never get to see the field (or get a paycheck), it irritates the hell out of me. Waste of talent. He will eventually become bankrupt and have his regrets, but thats on him.

    **** him.

    I'm relatively new to this site, i'm in the uk so my peak posting hours are generally while you guys are in bed so theres not much conversation and i'm not always on broadcast when i come on here unlike some others. Besides one of the first posts i made was in week three saying we should try and trade McFadden if we're going to be uncompetitive this year and i ended up getting flamed for it, this place can sometimes quite unwelcoming you know but i'm glad i persisted

    yep I get it and that is why a lot of premium members are perceived to talk "down " to non premium. In reality when they make comments that seem like they are better than someone else they are meaning those comments for one or two people but being that everyone can read them many take offense. But in premium we can and do make posts like the one you talk about without fear of being flamed. We often have conversations that have no name calling etc in premium. Even if it gets heated it is for the most part respectful.

    Really it's a small number of posters that make the most noise and bring down the quality of the reg forum. There are a whole lot of good threads that end up getting ruined by people coming in and belittling other posters because they don't like what was said.
