Raiders Gameday Memories (AFC West Days)
Thu Aug 29, 2013 11:58 am
  • In the AFC West days, the Raiders game was the ONE game a year even the uppity seatmates would tolerate my nonsense. Everyone hated the Raiders and their fans. What's your best Raider gameday memories?

    1) In the infamous Rickey Dudley getting knocked the frick out game, I got in quite the brawl with Raiders fans. A bunch of us paid $25 bucks to Hooters and that cost included a serving of wings, pitcher of beer, a bus to the dome, and a 300 level ticket. So, rest assured all 10 of us were hammered upon arrival.

    About midway through the 3rd quarter an annoying Raider fans 3 rows down is jawing and annoying everyone on the area. So, I asked those people in front of me their permission, and tossed a full king beer and doused a pair of Raider fans. What ensued was quite a the donnybrook, and as it should be, only the Raider fans were arrested.

    2) The Husky Stadium game where the Hawks beat a superior Raiders team, coached by Gruden, with winds and rains going sideways. I learned a valuable lesson; NEVER TAKE A FEMALE TO A DIVISION RIVAL GAME. On the way out she jawed at 10 legit looking cholo's who were Raider fans, and I had to duck and run like a coward since my only back-up was my ex-wife.

    3) The Husky Stadium SNF game, I came ready and armed with brass knuckles, just in case. But, instead my friend headbutted a Raider fan who approached and talked shit to him, leaving him "asleep" under the North Endzone bleachers. And, rightfully so, the Raider fan got arrested.

    In 2010, non- AFC West year, I went to the game in Oakland and placed Hass jersey on a downtown Oakland statue for all to see. I posted a picture here, but I cant find it now. Ironically, Seattle Raider fans are worse than Oakland Raider fans. I got very little shit.

    I know even the timid amongst us has gotten into altercations with those meth-smoking douche Raider fans. Whats a story?

  • Well this isn't a stadium memory because I wasn't there, but I remember one of the Husky Stadium games.

    I live in the Bay Area. I had to be out at the local mall for some reason, even though I wanted to be home watching the game. I found one of the small sports shops there, and thankfully they had the game on a TV there. I hung out and watched most of the second half while the people I was with were shopping at various stores. Raider fans were going in and out, with a small crowd that stayed the rest of the game.

    It was the December 2000 game where Ricky Watters had a monster run to basically win the game in a downpour, except he was stripped from behind, the Raiders recovered, and they were going to win. Except the refs ruled that the Raiders recovered at the 1, slid into the endzone, and it was ruled a safety. I'm sure most of you remember that one. Seahawks go on to win 27-24 with a TD to rookie D-Jack by pumped up Kitna.

    I will always have this gameday memory of the Raider fans all screaming in anger, hitting stuff, and me cheering in that sports shop. It was a glorious day.

  • That's the game me ex-girlfriend figured a 170lb Irish dude should have no problem fighting 10 legit gangsters.

    Great game. Gruden's playsheet floated into the stands, up and sideways. Just surreal conditions.

    One of my favorite Seahawk games of all time. I still have it on VHS somewhere.

  • I remember the 1984 MNF game when Fredd Young totally hammered the kick returner #21 Branch. Of course, it would be an illegal hit nowadays, but that hit totally set the tone for the rest of the game, which Seattle won. And then Doornick's 132 yard game against the Raiders later that year in the playoffs (when they were played in December)...alot of great memories.

  • I went to a game where the Seahawks played the Raiders and ran into some of their fans talking smack. Then I walked away.

  • Anyone at the game where Shaun Alexander ran all over the Raiders for 266 yards and 3 TDs?

    I would have loved to be at that one too.

  • Lost in Alexander's performance that night? It was Hass's arrival as a legit QB, IMO. It was his first good game.

  • From like 1984 to 1990 I was fortunate enough to have a very nice lady at work give me Monday Night Tickets every year for the Raider games when we played them on Mondays. She didn't like having to get home late and go to work. Seen some really bad, really good, really unexpected twists over those years, the game in I think 1989 Cost me a marridge, got tickets and didn't come home that night after work, went to the game and ex wife was told I was with someone else and went to the game, her mother worked where I worked BTW I wonder who told her that lie................ Anyway lots of great memories and nothing I mean nothing was better the Seahawks and Riaders on Monday Night.

  • One of the owners of the company I work for made the mistake of asking me what I thought would be a good "team building" event for our project team. This was in the summer of 2006. He offered Mariner tickets, then Husky tickets...I went for the jugular, Monday night football tickets is what I insisted on. A couple months later there we are, tailgating in the parking lot, getting hammered on another contractors dime. The guys tailgating two spots away were hardcore Raider fans from the bay area. The loudest was a big Mexican dude, tats on his neck etc. I started egging him on and sure enough he came over to our tent. He tried to get in my face but the closer he got the more shit I talked, nothing personal, just trashing Oakland and their fans. I lived in Sacramento for 10 years and have spent more than enough time in the dump of a city. Anyhow, the guy wound up being cool and hung out with us until the gates opened.

    The ensuing ass kicking was awesome to see in person. I wish that we weren't in the luxury suit though, it was to sterile and not knowing the other people made it hard to really go 12th man.

    This was the game Jeremy Stevens got his boys smashed.

  • Years ago in the dome, we had 6 seats (757 work crew shared) that were about 10 rows up from a Raider fan that showed up at least 4 years in a row in the same seat. This guy did the black and silver face paint, constantly caused fights and back then there were bunches.

    This guy was the kind of guy that whatever the situation, losing or winning, that would stand up, turn around and raise his hands out and flip off all the fans behind him in general whenever the Raiders did anything good.

    It was 1995 and we knew this guy would be back. So in preparation at work on Saturday, we made up a bunch of tape balls out of duct tape to bean this guy with. Sure enough, the guy showed up, but this time the Hawks just KILLED the Raiders. This guy had nothing to fuel his trademark maneuver. It was like 40-3 or something and near the end of the game Tim Brown scored on a really long play in garbage time.

    Like clockwork, our boy, who now has empty seats around him stands up and as he raised his arms as we let loose with the ordinance. Just nailed him with multiple shots, but one of them hit his beer cup and he fell over into the row in front of him, onto another Raider fan while spilling his beer onto yet a different Raider fan.

    They wasted no time with us, the guy he fell into went into a melee of punches on this guy and that was when the King CO showed up and took them both away to the cheers of the section.

    Yeah, it was stupid, but we were much younger and it was a Raider fan. Never saw the guy again though.

  • Still can't muster up the hate for the 49ers, Rams or Cardinals that I had for the Raiders, Chiefs, Chargers and especially the Broncos.

    I'd happily move the Seahawks back to the AFC West tomorrow if they'd let us.

    That was some game. I seriously could not even see the field from my seats. I brought my whole family. My wife had
    such a crappy time, that she told me to just go ahead and get season tickets so that my sister and I could go
    to the games. I was on the phone to a ticket rep Monday morning and that is one of the many reasons I love
    the Husky Stadium years of this franchise.

    I think I was at that game! I remember the crowd cheering as a couple Raider fans were escorted out by security guards. I was way on the other side of the stadium, in the good ol $10/game season tickets area. Nothin' better than Seahawks/Raiders in the Kingdome.
    We always had the Raiders number at the Kingdome.

    Dang, I remember that day like it was yesterday. Not because I was at the game, cuz I wasn't, but because I was scared to death doing a demo out on the lake in that weather. I remember rolling through the cut and hearing the fans over the noise of the Detroit diesels that were pushing the yacht I was trying to sell. In the end it was fitting that I was taking tens of thousands from a couple from Cali that made me miss the game.

  • Mine would be as an 18 yr old from Wa driving with two friends to LA to watch the 83 AFC Championship game. I've never seen so much black in my life, so much one of my friends had to change into a raider shirt before the game from being punch and spit on. I was not wearing Seahawk green, little smarter than him.

  • Those Kingdome Raider games were just epic. Especially the 80's teams.

    My folks were big time fans that probably spent my college money on season tickets. It was very difficult to get to a regular season game, so they gifted me their awesome seats for the 89 game. The Hawks went 7-9 that year, but were competitive. That Raider game was 2nd to last and had Beurlein (sp?) at QB and Bo Jackson/Marcus Allen in the back field. Art Shell was the coach then.

    At around the 2 yard line, Bo Jackson took a hand off and went for the end zone, the Hawks stood him up, created a fumble and returned it for a TD. It was crazy! In the distance I could see small pockets of fights breaking out as the crowd was blistering loud. Raider fans were pissed because Jackson broke the plane with the ball, it was a huge play.

    And it was a play that never happened. It was blown dead for false start. It was so loud and intense that no one knew until they settled down to hear the call, but in that one play that never counted I saw no less than 4 fights break out, in one corner you could see an entire mass of fans moving like it was a wave, but really it was a mob of fans fighting with Raider fans. All for a play that ended up as a meaningless FG.

  • Met a former Oakland Raiders player on a flight down to San Diego. Forgot his name, but he was a scout for an NFL team when I met him. He talked about how the 80's Raiders hated playing in the Kingdome. He said the Seahawks Special Teams were pretty intimidating. Fredd Young was a name that he dropped first.

    Still a little disappointed that the NFL did the re-org. The NFC West is okay and changing conferences did allow the team to go to their first Superb Owl, but still don't like the move.
