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)

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!

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.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
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

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,

Lilac, I believe you are being called out by Vikings fan.

Get him.......!
