We know this: The members of the Raider Nation are a loyal crew.

They stick together in the name of their fandom of the Las Vegas Raiders. And that includes their personal lives.

A recent study by The Grueling Truth, Raiders prefer to date people who like them follow the Silver and Black. The study shows 38 percent of Raiders want their partner to follow the Raiders as well. It’s the third highest percentage in the NFL according to the study.

Fans of the Arizona Cardinals (are there really Cardinals’ fans?) at the top of the league as 67 percent of their fans want to date a fellow Cardinals fan.

Do you feel about this? Is it a deal breaker if your partner doesn’t follow the Raiders?
