Open Letter to the Raiders

This probably will not generate much buzz but i could not really care less right now.

Dear Oakland Raiders and Reggie McKenzie,

I have been a fan since i was a child, but since these past few years my faith to this team has been questioned by mind boggling decisions and lack of poor play. I do not quite understand the methods to this madness, but by watching today's Free Agency buzz, i have lost almost all hope for this season. You as a organization let your two top players walk to other teams in Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston, both players who wanted to stay in Oakland, but you let them walk. You let our backup to starter running back Rashad Jennings go to the Giants, and resign Injury Prone Bust Darren McFadden to a 1yr/4mil contract, and to top it off you replace A+ LT Veldheer with another Injury Prone OT Roger Saffold for WWAAAAYY more than Veldheer was given to go to Arizona. As of right now i have lost hope in the Reggie McKenzie experiment. Unless we snag someone big to really help us, i already feel like considering this year a bust. I am sure other fans like myself feel the same way as of right now, but with close to 70 million dollars in cap size this year, i felt that the Raiders were to make a huge splash this year, but as of now we haven't made a ripple in the FA pond. I still have slight hope that this will change, but if something does not happen, i do not think i will even attempt to watch a Raiders game this year. Sure you may call me selfish for posting something like this, but this common madness is getting old, its like im watching WWE wrestling where all the drama is predictable, i just hope im damn wrong

Sincerly

A Raider Fan
