i am coming up on my first anniversary on visiting this blog. i've posted a few fanposts here and there, but always a must daily read for me. i've had alot of fun during the good times and bad. unfortunately theres been more bad than good. hopefully that will all change this year with the team we have and the coach we have. but to get to the point, eversince last years training camp when all the kiffin drama started it seems the media, especially the east coast, has nothing good to say at all, ever. even when the raiders finished strong at the end of the season and even knocked the bucs out of the playoffs. then there was the draft beat down followed up by the espn cris carter, tom jackson dissing DHB infront of his family. now, training camp has started and yet again not much good to say, even some of the local media had not alot of good things to say about cable's first four days of camp. eventhough it wasn't a beat down, there wasn't a whole lotta good press. there was even a quote from the lame new 'sportsnation' show from espn about how the raiders are nothing more than fuel for a dumpster fire. so having said all that, it was good to see a blog from bucky brooks from all places, nfl.com. i'll leave the link below. for all of you who are looking for something positive, its a nice change.
