And So It Starts



The Raiders are a second-rate NFL team, so it figures they'd have a second-rate version of Terrell Owens. Enigmatic receiver Jerry Porter showed up to the first day of Raiders training camp wearing a gold "Million Dollar Belt" (made famous by former WWF star Ted Dibiase) and demanded a trade.

This prompted new coach Art Shell to ask, “Who the hell is Jerry Porter?”

Seriously, what has Porter ever done to make people believe he is an All-Pro? Porter has never cracked 1,000 yards receiving or notched double digits in touchdown receptions. Yet the Raiders felt compelled to give Porter a $13M signing bonus in 2005. Porter missed the first day of practice with a calf injury and now he wants to be traded.

It's hard to imagine how this franchise has fallen off the face of the Earth since getting blown out in the Super Bowl.

Remember when Owens was having trouble with management during training camp last year? There were rumors of an Owens for Porter trade. Do you remember the best part? The Raiders fans didn’t want to part with Porter.

I think T.O.-lite needs to work on his smack talk before asking for another 13 million.

Uh, wassup w/ that picture??? Unless NFL/MLB Jennifer runs this site, I think that it's kinda gay. With all the throwing under the bus of black athletes that you do, you having a thing for half-naked brothas is really fuckin weird.

I married into the site, so I guess I have some input from time to time.

"I married into the site, so I guess I have some input from time to time. " Oh, well carry on then. My bad.

BigO, you can be very funny sometimes. Just ease up on the "we hate black people" stuff. Believe me, NFL Adam is an equal opportunity hater...

Your a good man Charlie Brown. I take back all the things I said about your smallness. You are huge and you must get laid all the time. Cheers! :)
