"The Media hated Davis because he kept his mouth shut when it counted and didn't bend over to their tactics. Most NFL owners hated Davis because he was a 'them', having worked his way up, and also because he had no problem hiring minorities when no one else would. You can only have so many people saying bad things about you before the sheep believe it...And now, the sheep don't even know why they hate the Raiders, it's just always been that way..." - Sir Pig
This is good news thanks
Raiders Sign 2013 Third Round Pick Sio Moore - Just Blog Baby - An Oakland Raiders Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.On a busy news day in Raider Nation with the close of minicamp, The Raiders have signed third round pick linebacker Sio Moore to a contract, the team announced today. He becomes the seventh of the ten Raiders draft picks that Reggie McKenzie and the Raiders have signed this off-season after having signed all of their sixth and seventh round picks last week.
The 6-1, 240 pound linebacker Moore was the 66th overall selection in Aprilís draft by the Raiders. In 31 starts at Connecticut, Moore garnered first-team All-Big East Conference honors twice as a junior and a senior this past season as well as being named to the All American Sleeper Team this year. In 2012, Moore ranked fourth on the team with 72 tackles (45 solo) and was named to the watch list for the Butkus Award, presented annually to the nationís top linebacker and was one of the better sleeper picks in the third round of this yearís draft.
He has been lining up as the teamís starting weakside linebacker thus far at Raiders minicamp and is expected to start there right away as a rookie as McKenzie has him tapped as one of the Raiders defensive players of the future.
Last season, the Raiders started rookie fourth round pick Miles Burris at weak side linebacker but Burris has been out recovering from knee surgery. This marks the second straight Raiders linebacker to be victimized by knee injuries as Burris replaced Aaron Curry last season after Curry had his own problems with his knees.
The Raiders now are left with three picks yet to be signed-First round pick D.J. Hayden at cornerback, second round pick OT Menelik Watson, and fourth round pick QB Tyler Wilson.

Hell yea baby, I have a great feeling about this kid, gonna be the kind of player that turns the defense around in a major way.
Reggie McKenzie; repairing the bandwagon one flat tire at a time!
Listening to his interviews and him being signed already, this guy isn't messing around. Seems like a wild man locked up in a cage waiting to burst onto the field and knock mf"ers out.
