Report: This fan (or is it fans?) exist

Oakland Raider fans insane
Do you realize the monumental effort that goes into looking like such an elaborate jackass?  Someone actually sat down and took the time to meticulously affix that little skull — perhaps the official term is "sidecar skull" — and other impressive pieces of flair to their custom Raiders jersey, of which already featured permanently installed shoulder pads.  All of that for the sole purpose of acting like a formerly imprisoned ape fueled by the consumption of their own piss. 

Applause?  Applause.

    But they have the greatest football song ever and there’s nothing you can do about it but to start breaking and burning furniture too:

    Was this post by Hernia, 23 days before Al’s death, prophetic?

    Hernia have you gone occult on us?

    Wow thats not very nice of you…. and shows your true colors…. “All of that for the sole purpose of acting like a formerly imprisoned ape fueled by the consumption of their own piss” also shows a lack of class…. we dress up because its fun, and to support our team. thats all just a hobby sorry if it offends you, but why cant you just let people enjoy the football game in the way they want to? doesnt hurt you a bit….

    WE DON’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK. WE HAVE HEART, COURAGE, AND HONOR UNLIKE MANY. THE RAIDER NATION IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE TARGET OF STUPID REPORTERS LIKE YOU AND YOUR DISRESPECT FOR THOSE WHO DRESS UP FOR AL THESE GAMES. HEY, WHAT CHARITY DO YOU DO BESIDES OPEN YOUR BIG MOUTH?? AT LEAST THESE GUYS GO TO HOSPITALS AND CHEER UP THE LITTLE KIDS WHO ARE ILL CAUSE OF CANCER. OR SHOW UP TO A MARATHON IN SUPPORT. OR HOW ABOUT PRETTY MUCH ATTENDING ANYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH OUR KIDS AND THE COMMUNITY.
    AND YOU REPORT THIS TRASH. YOU WASTED MY TIME READING THIS AND WASTED MY TIME WRITING THIS BUT I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT TRUTH. AND THE TRUTH IS, YOU HAVE A CLOSED MIND AND NEED TO FOCUS ON YOURSELF BEFORE YOU START TRASHING THE FACES OF THE RAIDER NATION. WE ARE THE RAIDER NATION. WE WILL RISE!!

    Unlike you, the Raider Nation always shows up in public and defend their colors. Each fan-base does it their own way, the Nation does it by having the most awesome-elaborate costumes you’ll find in any NFL stadium. I would like to see you at the Oakland Coliseum and have the balls to say what you express in your article in the face of every fan you see dressed in their own “fashion”. But I know you’ll never do that because you don’t have the balls to back up what you write in this lame website.

    Let me explain it like this…. Raiderman, Sarge, Yabba Dabba, Gorilla Rilla, Toozak, Violater etc etc… We are JUST Fans…. but we are Fans that make a Difference…. You know WHY we are getting Notarity as fans… Is because we ARE the Face of the Franchise since the move BACK to Oakland…. But know first about the Nation… this is ‘La Familia’… We have given our OWN time to Raise $$ for MULTIPLE Charities and this past Christmas… Santa Raider was contacted PERSONALLY by Los Angles News 7 to HELP raise Toys for Tots…. OVER 10 City buses were filled with our help…. Quit Hiding behind a Screen and do some good for the community… Who cares what we wear when we do….

    This Pic was ALSO taking during the MNF Game in Denver… where the ‘Road Warriors’ …. Went to Denver and Bronco fans SOUGHT us out…. Because they know that though we look like ‘Convicts’ we have Hearts of Gold…. There are SO many Veterans in Raider Nation… I personally am called: Sarge… and Dress in my old Drill Sgt Outfit… Raiderman as a Veteran as well…. We served America so you can have your opinion… and I am not here to take that away… Just PLEASE… before kicking the Hornets Nest… KNOW…

    ALSO, What Flag brings together ALL Races, Creed, Nations and Sexual Orientations…. I will Tell you what Flag… the RAIDER FLAG…

    People like you always seem to have pretty nasty things to say about the Raider Nation. You hate the Raider Nation for the way they dress up. It’s not enough for you to just turn your eyes away from it nooooo, you want to take the spiked shoulderpads and skulls away from us permanently. Haters like you have went on this campaign to have the Raider Nation and the costumes they wear abolished. Even though you never taken a look at our records and whether we have clean records or not you would ignore that and still come up with stereotypes of us being synonymous with crime. We Raider fans don’t appreciate pompous, self-righteous hater with a grudge sitting on top of their high horse looking down their noses at us and preaching out against the constitutional rights of us Raider fans to enjoy the game of football however we see fit. The costumes, spikes, skulls, face paint, etc. are FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION Mr. Raider Hater not prison-based misbehavior but FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, you might want to do your homework on that for once. I think it is a great idea that us Raider fans are telling you haters what we think of you and your diarrhea of the mouth. So on behalf of my good buddy Raider Man whom you belittled with your hack article and every other Raider fan who denies any hater hiding behind his keyboard the power to take away their constitutional rights to enjoy their Raider fandom in any way, which is more criminal than anything haters like you have ever falsely accused the Raider Nation of by the way, we all say GO TO HELL and try to reform things down there cause we Raider Nation familia here in the Real World are doing just fine without you.

    Haters are gonna hate. If you are going to be a person that judges a book by it’s cover you are always going to be the jackass.
