And yes MORE incompetent Raider reporting!
Welcome Raidernews.com readers! Again! While playing the self-appointed role of “Scourge of stupid is as stupid does Bay Area reporters” I have written this and this. Check ‘em out if you haven’t seen them yet, please. The Raider Nation response was massive and largely positive. So, first, Mahalo from this Kauai-based Raider fan.
I wanted to do it again, but there haven’t but a lot of recent ridiculous reports from the local media. There hasn’t been much news at all since the my last report. So I’ve widened the scope a bit. Here are three ridiculous mistakes the national media has made.
Mistake number 1! From Fox Sports:
The link: (this link works, but it doesn’t link to the same report I’m quoting from. That quote has vanished.)
HARD TRUTH: The Raiders haven't had a consistent playmaker at safety since Albert Lewis retired after the 1998 season.
My comment on this:
In 2002 Rod Woodson had 8 interceptions (remember the 98 yarder against Dungver? Of course you do!) and 3 fumble recoveries. Not a consistent playmaker???
Mistake 2! From Sports Illustrated:
The link: (this one works)
The Raiders franchised a lousy player, and now they might be stuck with him. His name is Charles Woodson and his last great game was in
Now Charles Woodson is a LOUSY PLAYER??!?!?!? I know there is a faction within the Raider Nation that thinks CWood is overpaid, overrated, and that he doesn’t show the work ethic or leadership he should. Even if one concedes all of that- there is no way in hell CWood is a lousy player. That’s a ridiculous statement, and it shows how just how poisonous the CWood haterade is. Also, CWood has had his share of great games as a Raider. In fact, I recall he shut down one Randy Moss just last November.
Last week, the Raiders signed defensive end Bobby Hamilton away from the Super Bowl champion
I am commentless… No I’m not. Do these people WATCH football? Nobody noticed Bobby Hamilton wasn’t in the Super Bowl? Nobody goes - ‘oh, wait a second’ while writing that??? LOL!
I admit it is slim pickings for this post... I don't think the reporting is getting better... I think there's just less of it. C ya’ next time, Raider Nation! Wait- just a couple quick comments. First, I LOVE that Jordan will be wearing Kenny King and Eddie Anderson’s number. Those are two of my all time favorite Raiders. Hopefully
