Didn't get to watch the game, but got the results. Raider Nation fans must be so sad...But what, no riot?

 

Huh, maybe this time, it is different??? :)

FLU: Thank God you don't generalize and lump all Raider fans together. And, thank God, there aren't any thug Charger fans!

Raiders actually look a lot better this year than last, and the Chargers are still getting used to having "Nervous" Norv Turner as a coach.

LT looked like LT again. He must have woken up, what with Michael Turner breathing down his neck and all.

All of this, of course, is a moot point. The Raiders won't go to the playoffs, and any AFC team that does will get obliterated by the Patriots.

Come playoffs, all you polite, well coiffed and sartorially resplendent Chargers fans will be joining me on the couch.

Generalization or not, the Raider fan's rowdy reputation is well earned. Having lived 1/4 mile from the stadium for the past 6 years, the lack of their typical disruptive presence after yesterday’s game was a welcomed change.

JPJ: The only thing I can say is this: Go see a Raiders game in Oakland. Then you can truly be thankful when your entire neighborhood isn't left looking like downtown Berlin, circa 1945 following a Chargers - Raiders game.

We could be worse. We could be Manchester United fans!

Was at the game yesterday and it looks like we took back the stadium. The crowd was at least 80% Chargers which is a big change from years back. Amazing what a change winning makes in season tix sales.
