i can't ignore this post, in fact i've made it the homepage for everyone on my company's network terminal.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
The Vikings jobbed by the ref's? HA....

Try bleeding silver and black for a while. Nobody else has to play an extra team! (the officials)

Signed,
Raider Fan

you can't beat beating the 'Aints. that's what Saints fans call the team when we admit to the association...

GA,

I'm going to inflame your ire with this post. Take a deep breath before you read it. wink big grin

The Raiders are normally the toughest, dirtiest playing team in the NFL - especially in the '70's. How many flags per game did they average in those years? Seemed like every time Da Boyz (Cowboys, that is) played them, Staubach ended up hurt because of some illegal shot.

<bump>
With all due respect Ms. Wine.....

Those flags you point out simply make my point. My Raiders have been persecuted by the ref's for decades.

You may wish to re-write history, but your revisionist views will be thouroghly rejected by those with even a limited knowledge of football.

Hey that was pretty good mock anger and indignation. razz big grin

Better luck next year Lilac.

GA.....I must admit that the Raiders are currently blessed with Richie Gannon, whom I watched frequently during his days at the U. of Delaware. Gannon was even more of a scrambler then. Gannon is also blessed with a very good offensive line and 2 great wide receivers. What a combination!

badly, my local wine store's idea of Christmas gift baskets is Biltmore Estate wines at prices that would make you think they were good if hadn't tried them.

I tried them. Well, Asheville has a lot more to offer than those wines. In fact, I'm wearing my Mast Store sweatshirt right now. We'll be back at the Richmond Hill Inn again before too long.

Just one more sip.
when you do, Board-O, let me know, there are lots of secrets to our little town. how does one get in touch with someone else besides just looking on the boards?

sorry, pgardner, not in a meditative or quasi-religious sense. wink

in real-life, as in this case, to pass on several tips and places to go without filling up a mile of a thread. maybe there isn't a way, someone please clarify who's been here longer.

That was very good mock anger GA! big grin

Saying the Raiders were "persecuted" by the refs is like saying Charles Manson is persecuted by the California penal system. They deserved every bit of it.

I always dreaded the day the Cowboys had to play the Raiders. I always knew it was going to be a tough game and that my dad would burst a blood vessel over the refs not calling all the bad stuff.

I expanded my vocabulary on those days too. Kind of like the blonde kid in "A Christmas Story" (THE word). wink

Gladstone at a social gather said to Disraeli, "I predict, Sir, that you will die either by hanging or of some vile disease". Disraeli replied, "That all depends, sir, upon whether I embrace your principles or your mistress."
Could somebody please get that woman (the sort of blonde one in the short skirt who went bananas) to stop that caterwalling? It's driving me nuts. mad

Life without wine?...... Yeah Right.<br /><br />I believe we have 2 lives; the life we learn with and the life we live with after that.

Did you watch The Natural again?
Ok folks,

I have been a Raider's fan since, I believe, 1970. When I was just a kid, I saw George Blanda throw three touchdown passes AND kick five field goals in the same game against the Browns. I was hooked ever since. Did not actually know the exact year I saw this game until Madden came out with a book in like 1986, and he descibed this exact game. Finding out how long I had been cheering for them was very cool!

And I still do!

Go Raiders!

Later,
Mark, N.H.
Lilac, I believe you are being called out by Vikings fan.

Get him.......!
