    Just about every season, the NFL expects the Raiders to be a competitive team. Even last season, the so-called experts were saying "the Raiders have all the talent to be a winning team."
    Though this off season, those jackoffs seem to have got off of Al's leg. Maybe because he hasn't made any big signings or maybe it's because they're finally convinced that the Raiders are not a coach away from advancing to a playoff team.

    I say "it's the second one." Chargers at Dallas would be one of the best Thanksgiving games in a loooooong time (not just in the eyes of Chargers and Cowgirl fans either)!!!
    So why the Raiders in Dallas? I say "because they don't want the Cowgirls to lose on national TV!!!"

    You're just getting this NOW? :icon_huh:

    When the NFL announced the opening weekend & Turkey Day games, everyone (including myself) said the same thing you did.

    But yeah, Jerry Jones wanted a PANSY team to POUND in their new stadium.

    Like it or not, the Raiders and Cowboys have two of the largest fan bases of any teams in professional sports.

    The goal is to get people to watch.

    It's the middle game of the triple header.

    I'm more pissed that the Donkeys got the prime time game on NFL Network vs. The Giants. I think that one's gonna be the laugher.

    Yeah. Sorry if I'm late but I've been moving during the last week of March. So I'm a little behind the times at this moment.

    Yeah but people have been jumping off the Raiders bandwagon over the past couple seasons.
    People will watch regardless because there is no other games on.

    Frankly, I'd love to see the Raiders getting their asses kicked on Thanksgiving Day become a longstandng, time-honored ritual. :tup:
