According to Deadspin, the The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority held a meeting today to discuss the possibility of building a new stadium in order to keep the Raiders from leaving.

Diehard Raider fan “Dr. Death” was in attendance and actually spoke at the meeting.

“Good afternoon. My name is Dr. Death, said “Dr. Death.” “Behind this face paint and the knives on my head, I’m a 25-year-old college student that works part time at a restaurant.” He had me at “knives on my head.”

He went on to list why losing the Raiders would hurt the city of Oakland.

“I will end it like this. If you have great people, and a great fanbase with great community leaders and a great team with a great leader, you tell them one thing: Just win, baby!”

Top 5 Fantasy Football Players for the Oakland Raiders

  Unless you are a die-hard member of the Raider Nation, you probably won’t be picking many Oakland Raiders players in your fantasy draft. With a new offensive scheme and a crew of unproven quarterbacks vying to become the starter, the Raiders offense is a giant question mark.

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly: Sports Culture

  Sports culture is made up of many different things. It is one that can sweep a person up, and fill his or her life. Being a fan can consume you, just as much as being a pro-athlete can take over a person’s life entirely.
