LLLOOOOOLLL yea in SF hahahaha, not oakland crazy head hahaha.
I refuse to be intimidated to the point were I wont wear any Dolphins gear. At the very least I will wear a hat. Hopefully by that time Oakland will be out of the hunt and the regulars are looking to unload their tickets to Dolphin fans.. The last game I attended in the bay area was a Niner's game and I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of Dolphins fans in the stands.
platinumstubs.com had some great prices
I am thinking about going to the game as well...
The words of advice that I have from multiple different people with experience is that DO NOT WEAR YOUR DOLPHINS GEAR and openly cheer for your team.
Especially if Miami is winning/wins.
I may go with a couple of my Raider fan friends but I won't be wearing any Miami gear.
If the game was in SF, it' a different story; those fans are docile as hell.
The leauge should crack down on that crap. What a bunch of cowards that have to gang up on the fans in the minority. They should have an undercover cop in Fins stuff and a bunch in street clothes near by. The NFL wants it to be all family friendly yet they know this happens and are condoning it by not stopping it.
I pity the fool who doesn't wear black & try to fit in. Raiders are them against the world, not just divisional opponents. The Raiders are the underdog, the team for the working man & minorities. Not only is Oakland a wasteland in this economy, they're the home of the Hells Angels, every gang, etc. ... & they're at games tail gating. The only thing open near the stadium is some little grill that serves out of a window like a check cashing place. Neighborhood looks like Thriller video. Just ask Davon Bess, he grew up within blocks!! ... he might even answer your question about going to a game in his hood
This ain't no yuppie fest like PSL teams, SF, & our owners vision ... we don't even see 49er fans in sports bars now that they're down on their luck. Raiders fans are underdogs (even when they're winning) & the team promotes the image!! If you look for trouble, you'll get it quick, but the place is NOT KNOWN for violence.
Just wear black, cheer for both teams ... when you get "the look" on a Phins TD, say they're your 2 favorite teams!!
I love A's baseball games & love their fans (same stadium & Raider fans). You will see they're beacoup smarter than the average fans. Outside of yelling & screaming like all do ... they come up with incredible stuff & are "expert needlers." Many things in sports have been copied from Raiders fans.
The needling is creative & wonderful & makes opposing players nuts, its legendary. 2 years ago the A's needled the bullpen, the pitchers threw their chairs in the stands, needlers ducked & they hit an old lady. Then the pitchers went into the stands, the fans stood together & kicked their butts!! Now other clubs still trying to make an anti-needling baseball rule as these fans are so good/funny ... dumb--az millionaire players. A's also have a 30-50 man drum corps in the bleachers who beat out cheers. Same folks at Raiders games.
Dress in black, & enjoy the show ... its a trip, you'll love it if you're 'under cover'. Folks who don't do this have a bad time & whine!! Repeat ... this ain't NO yuppie fest!!!!!!! ... its old school & you can always get an affordable ticket .... maybe like it should be!!!!!
Left Coast Dolphan, Go Phins!!
I went to Raiders vs Bengals last year when the Raiders beat them. There were a couple of people in Bengals jerseys around me, and they weren't getting that much crap. Just the standard ribbing you would get anywhere.
That being said, I'll be at the game this year (section 140), wearing all grey and black, sporting only my black Fins hat
If all you're goin' on is my confession, forget it. I'm simply not credible. -Dale Gribble
I will be going to the game and will not be wearing any Phins gear. I know a guy who was beat up/knocked out then pissed on in the bathroom for cheering for another team...
No one could tell me where my soul might be;
I searched for God, but He eluded me;
I sought my brother out and found all three.
- Poet Howard Crosby
Seriously, it sucks but it looks like that might be the route I take. I'd rather watch my team play and cheer on the inside then not go because there are some retards that just don't know how to act...
