After some careful deliberation, your Raider Nation Fan of the Week is Asylum from Burlingame, Kansas.
Asylum is a 42-year-old die-hard fan who flies back and forth from Kansas to Oakland to attend games and has been a season ticket holder for the past 14 years. He came up with his persona, “Because people called Raiders fans crazy. So I decided to show them crazy.”
Asylum narrowed his all-time favorite Raider down to two choices: Bo Jackson and Lyle Alzado. He represents the silver and black loud and proud in the Midwest. If you happen to live in Kansas and see Asylum at your local Raiders-themed bar, buy him a beer! He deserves one!
