What you’re about to see is the wedding ceremony of Oakland Raiders fan “Gorilla Rilla”. And if you just take a moment and think about every picture you’ve ever seen of Raiders fans at a Raiders game and visualize them at a wedding - well, that’s what went down.
So in other words, it’s exactly what you’d expect to see at a Raiders fan’s wedding.
First, we have the groom, “Gorilla Rilla” making his way down the aisle.
Here’s “Gorilla Rilla” with his new bride “Jungle Jane.”
This week’s Oakland Raiders’ game could be against anyone. The best team, the worst team, or anyone in between. When it is time to play Denver, the focus leads to the Raider’s long extended rivalry with the Broncos. To me, we have to put that in the back of our minds this week. The team [...]
Football fans across the world, especially those of the Oakland Raiders received some great news on Monday when it was reported that injured Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was released from the hospital.The former first round speedster spent Sunday night in the Eden Medical Center after the jarring hit from Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy in the end zone. On the...
The Pro Football Hall of Fame Committee has announced the newest crop of nominees into their prestigious club. How about former Oakland Raiders, you ask? Among the newest group of possible new members, lie a group of men that have at one point in their careers donned the Silver and Black. Lucky 13 is the [...]
Remember that roster spot opened a few hours ago by the departure of offensive lineman Joseph Barksdale? Well, it’s not there anymore. The Oakland Raiders have announced the signing of pro-bowler defensive end Andre Carter, conceivably getting the best player that was still on the market. Carter to the Raiders was not a out-of-nowhere deal. [...]
The Broncos have not been very good defensively to start out the season. They haven’t really played well in general, but their offense has scored over 25 points per game through the first three weeks. However, their defense has allowed more than three touchdowns per game, which has resulted in a 1-2 record.
Appliance Factory Outlet in Denver has decided to roll the dice on the...
Offensive tackle Joseph Barksdale has been released by the Oakland Raiders, according to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com. Barksdale, a third-round pick in 2011, was inactive for each of the first three games this season. He joins fellow third-round pick cornerback DeMarcus Van **** and fourth-round pick defensive back Chimdi Chekwa as players the Raiders have parted ways with...

Still not sold on this team as being anything better than one of the best teams in the league. Their upset win over the Steelers was not completely shocking given how much the Steelers have sucked over the last year plus on the road. They are -43 on the road in that time period, including playoffs, and +137 at home. They beat Indianapolis by just 3...
This Sunday the Oakland Raiders will be going up against long time rival, the Denver Broncos. The Raiders lead this series overall with a record of 53 wins, 39 losses and 1 tie. The Raiders hope to make that 54 wins this Sunday, but the Broncos will do their best to keep it from happening. [...]
Defensive end Andre Carter was signed by the Oakland Raiders, who also added wide receiver Tori Gurley to their practice squad. Carter was a first-round pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2001 and has 76 sacks in 163 career games. He was with the Patriots in 2011, registering four sacks at the New York Jets on Nov. 13 and had 10 for the season when he was placed on injured reserve...
The play of Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer this past weekend can not be understated, but the defense of the Pittsburgh Steelers certainly helped the veteran quarterback out by declaring what they were going to do several times during the game pre snap.
You are likely reading quite a bit today about how "predictable" the defense was on Sunday, but most of the...
Oakland Raiders (1-2) at Denver Broncos (1-2)
I thought the Raiders were overrated coming into the season and now they’re even more overrated coming off a “surprising” win over the Steelers. Their upset win over the Steelers was not completely shocking given how much the Steelers have sucked over the last year plus on the road. They are -43 on the road in that time period,...

One of the – if not the – biggest plays of the week 3 contest versus the Steelers was the first running play of the Raiders where Darren McFadden scampered virtually untouched 64 yards down the field and into the end zone for their first rushing touchdown of the season.
The play was significant for a number of reasons – it tied up the score, shifted momentum and gave...
