Who doesn't like a good "RAIDERS SUCK!" joke?
For those of my readers who pay only slight attention to professional football, or those who can't be bothered with the details of teams who play home games west of the Rockies, here is a brief summary.
Last century, The Oakland/Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders were a pretty good football team, and some seasons they were actually great.
This century, the Oakland Raiders suck.
But even a bad team can have some entertainment value, by being the butts of jokes. Here are some of my favorite "RAIDERS SUCK!" jokes.
