Please Stop the Use of True Raider Fan Against our Own



There has been a really unsettling trend on this site that I would like to request an end to. Its the overuse of saying a True Raider Fan. I am tired of people saying if you do not agree with my opinion you are not a true Raider fan. We are all true Raider fans if we love the Raiders and are members of this site. Its the very reason we love this site so much. This transaction of adding Carson has really brought this issue to a head, but I've been bothered by this long before the Palmer trade. Its one thing to say it to trolls, or even to say it while expressing our own opinions but to say it in a rebuttal to our brethren has got to stop. Please. Just because somebody doesn't agree with the masses doesn't mean they are not true Raider fans. They are and we are all united in that.

The funny thing is I actually find this comment more offensive than your normal name calling. Somebody can call me an asshole, that's fine, go ahead and do it if you don't like this post. However, never, ever, question my love of this team. I am a true Raider fan and so are you, my brothers and sisters because of our love. Let this fact unite us, please stop questioning it in others that bleed silver and black. We all have our opinions, and they are not always going to coexist peacefully. The fact that we are passionate enough to argue it is part of being a true Raider fan. Save this for times when they are really warrented, because it is an insult that goes directly to each and every one of our hearts when used against us.
