The Raiders Are Just Flaunting Their Love Affair With Sin City Right In The Face Of The Oakland Faithful
I just have one question for Mark Davis and the front office of a Raiders' team that's still technically wed to the loud and proud city of Oakland for the time being...
HOW COULD YOU BE SO HEARTLESSSSSS?!?
Much like an extremely pointed Instagram post embracing the honeymoon stage of a new relationship right in the face of an old one, this is an enormous kick in the dick to the loyal lunatics that filled The Black Hole for years on end despite it being a place that, until two seasons ago, sucked all forms of football-related optimism into its unforgiving oblivion.
I get that it behooves the Raiders, as an organization, to cozy up to those with which they'll eventually share a development, but the divorce is still two full years away from being finalized. Is it really too much to ask to show some respect for the family dynamic by not pulling open the shades during the middle of a holiday weekend and tickling the balls of the newest neighborhood hunk in the bay window that faces the entire sports' community? Couldn't they have at least poorly pretended to save their extramarital flirtation for behind closed doors like damn near every other unhappy participant in a doomed marriage?
It's a credit to the fanaticism of Raiders fans that they'll continue to show up despite being publicly emasculated by their team's affair with the Las Vegas, but even encouraging them to do so is as superfluously sinful as asking friends and family to pay to attend a destination wedding between pathological cheaters.
