Even Raiders Week Sucks Now
There is no bigger testament to how far the Raiders have fallen than the fact that the team is coming to town and nobody cares. Even local knives salesmen have not seen their normal sales spike that typically accompanies a Raiders visit to the Murph. Even the notoriously myopic Raiders fans have started to come to the conclusion that the Raiders are horrible. Begrudgingly, of course. There were still some holdouts, like Japanese soldiers living in seclusion 40 years following World War II. But those exceptions are now rare. Yes, even the most ardent of Raiders fan now recognizes that their team is about as relevant to the NFL as the Arizona Cardinals. Congratulations on that.
