How to Relate to Your Fans

I sat on a jury years ago, 2nd degree attempted murder case. One day the defendant wore sneakers with his suit to court. It was that day I knew he was guilty.

It’s not standard policy around [DFO] to just post other’s media creations to our page and then try to pass it off as original #content. However, it would have been a desolate post to write, “Did you see that photo on the Raiders Instagram? Boy, talk about a shirt that speaks to every member of Raider Nation, amirite?!” and then, I dunno — I guess have an unrelated photo of a girl in underwear all presentational in front of a Raiders hooptie.

So here is the link to the photo if you want to further check out the fan conversation about trying to get Kam Chancellor. Also entertaining: Instagram user shamen__ just inserting in this conversation, “We can go 3-1!” (We’ll check back on his math skills in Week 11 when shamen___ has to take off his shoes).

Regarding the Unpaid Debt slogan, it has apparently been adopted by the team since the preseason when a motivational speaker introduced the idea to Del Rio and Co. However, the shirts are not available for purchase and can only be obtained by, I dunno — drafting bad and having shitty ownership or whatever and they are threatening to leave to Oakland.

Deb T. is the Bay Area’s “Pele of anal”, and she takes iou’s.

I’ll pay good money for that Raiders jersey she’s wearing..

Considering other motivational tactics encouraged by Jack Del Rio this one seems fairly harmless, if completely nonsensical. What debt do they owe, besides all that money they’ve taken from their fans over the past several years in return for nothing?

Speaking of websites that pass off other people’s content as their own… Uproxx traffic has taken a nosedive. My schadenboner is so turgid right now.

I clicked on a link and the comments have become brutal. If you comment on a woman’s looks, expect a minimum of four responses calling you immature, unwelcome, a possible Neanderthal, and other PC responses. I shudder to think what a “Sexy Friday” post would bring out in their current readership.

No! They’re gonna follow this and be all politically correct and make us feel bad for appreciating beauty n shit!!

(Side note… I’m guessing you’re a far of Eliza Dushku, and these are great photos you’ve found…. You know she’s gonna be on the last season of Banshee, right?)

I have a possibly unnatural attraction to Eliza Dushku. She’s just incredibly hot to me.

Meh….. yes incredibly hot. Red zone touchdown ratio 61%; very good.

I can’t see anything unnatural about it, unless you have fever dreams about her corpse or something. Then you might need to lie down on a couch and talk it out with someone.

Apparently we have the same rules as Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, just noticed that.

So we can circumvent the “no nudity” clause with painted-on “clothing?”

So, stricter rules than the new, family friendly, Times Square.

All debt is unpaid debt… if it were paid it wouldn’t be a debt.

You and your logic… it’s the Raiders; if logic applied they wouldn’t have drafted Heyward-Bey or Derek Carr, and they sure as shit wouldn’t let that freakish of nightmare garbed fans hang out by their end zone every home game.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Hey, I’ll gladly join in a curb-stomping of the Heyward-Bey pick, but what was so bad about the Carr pick? Some folks had him projected to go in the first round; the Raiders got him in the early 2nd.

Some folks also believe that Trump would make a good president and that Elvis was assasinated by The Mole People because he wrote a song disclosing their existence.*

Agreed; Carr is one of the few good players on the team, he needs time and a line to develop……… which he probably won’t get.

entropy
Member

This is why I feel the Carr pick was not very rational… just like his poor, run-over brother, Derek is a promising QB who will be so terrified of getting hit by his third year that he’ll run screaming from any pressure, as a line of urine runs down his leg. Oakland is not the team for him.

Oakland is trying and has done better with some recent picks, and it was a good pick for THEM. WTF?

I freely admit I could be wrong.

I think you may be correct from Carr’s POV, just that the Raiders made the right pick.

Yes, most good teams turn away paying fans if they are in costume.

I have issues with Radiers fans in costume. Couldn’t tell you why, but they bug me.

I guess I appreciate the effort… sort of…. but I won’t get dressed up in costume for a team.

*Would wear butler costume for role playing with Gemma Atkinson.

entropy

I can’t fault you for dressing up as a butler for Gemma… I’d probably wear damn near anything that Allison Brie asked me to, and (terrible, guilty confession time) I would dress up as that fuck stick from Nickelback for Avril Lavigne. Something about that raccoon looking snagglentooth end poser that does it for me.

Your mileage may vary, but this is a perfectly acceptable way to waste a few years of my life:

I don’t see it as any worse than other teams, however getting dressed up in costume and make-up is theatrical, not bad-ass as they would like you to believe.

I don’t care if she comes across as a trying-too-hard-drama-school student, she’s hot as hell and probably a lot more fun than given credit for being. Allison Brie…. accept no substitutes. Unless it’s Avril. Or Gillian Jacobs.

Being a Broncos fan IMO the AFC West and the NFL in general is a better place when the Raiders are competent to good. It’s not fun hating on the mentally challenged kid.

Regarding the Unpaid Debt slogan, it has apparently been adopted by the team since the preseason when a motivational speaker introduced the idea to Del Rio and Co.

Which is actually a funny coincidence, because the motivational speaker was originally supposed to be talking to the Oakland City Council regarding the payment status for the last set of renovations to the Coliseum and went to the wrong conference room by mistake.

I hear Raiders fans can get them for free if they visit the payday lending loan joints they haven’t visited in a while.
