Renewed Rivalry

RIVALRIES: This season has brought renewed hatred and resentment of the Oakland Raiders from their most virulent foes.  Which is just how we like it!


#1 Chargers. There can't be anything that enrages the SD fans more than knowing that Oakland demolished them twice, left their season in shambles, crushed their playoff hopes, and singlehandedly smacked Rivers out of the running for MVP. This rivalry is bound to be very very intense next season!


#2 Broncos. Oakland blew them to bits like a powder keg of dynamite. The moment the Raiders scored a franchise high against them in Colorado, was the moment that their entire season was shattered beyond repair. Since then they've lost their coach, QB, self-respect and are utterly adrift. Next time we play it will be for blood...


#3 Chiefs. Overtime win at the Colosseum was what brought Raiders back from the brink of defeat, rejuvenating the team and showing that we are back once and for all. Thanks to Kansas City for showing us that if we keep fighting we can win, even against a good team like the Chiefs.


#4 Steelers. Raiders tried to climb up from mediocre to good. And got smashed back down. Pittsuburg played rough, tough, bone crushingly hard and left Oakland for dead. Our whole season collapsed after Seymour punched Big Ben, and we've been trying to put it back together since then. Raider hate for Steelers is getting back to it's normal red hot level of rage...

#5 Dolphins. A long time foe of the Raiders, beating us at home again. They MUST pay dearly next time...

#6 49ers.  This is about the lowest level of rivalry, but to us in the East Bay, losing to Frisco was a painful defeat.  We'll be stewing in this one for a long time, but when the time comes, Raiders must have revenge in the Battle of the Bay.

Anyone else enjoying this renewal of old acquaintances?  Are there other rivalries that we need to put back on the front burner?
