Are the Raiders the Worst NFL Fans?

The Oakland Raiders spent decades building a reputation as the toughest, meanest, dirtiest football players in the National Football League. The NFL Raiders said, "If you weren't cheating, you weren't trying." The Raider fans have followed along by creating Raider Nation -- the meanest and dirtiest fans in the NFL.

Police in San Francisco say two men were shot and injured in the parking lot of Candlestick Park after a preseason NFL game between the 49ers and the Oakland Raiders.
I remember living in South Central Los Angeles when I attended the University of Southern California. We lived comfortably among the seriously mean street gangs in the neighborhood, but we locked our doors when the Raider fans played at the LA Coliseum.
The Raider Nation fans that dressed up like pirates and scary costumes didn't bother me.

The Raider fans that stabbed people in the stands did. Watch this video of a Raider fan stabbing an unsuspecting Charger fan:

    When a nation loses it's moral compass this is the result. It has been coming for many years and we are here and only when individuals hold themselves accountable and all life is important will this nation change it's course.

    I've been a Raiders fan since 1982 and have never felt the need to be violent about it. But I have worked with people who were like that. One person I worked with was served with a restraining order by his neighbor because of his antics. I think all of this is more a reflection on our society as a whole than it is anything else. There are violent people everywhere who have no respect for the value of a life. America is becoming an immoral nation.

    You are so right! What happened to compassion for others? It seems like most people don't care about anyone but themselves and what they want. It is a shame to go to a football game and have to worry about getting shot or beat up.

    Shooting and stabbing people violates more than the law... it violates sportsmanship when the fans do it.

    Al Davis has a hoodlum mentality,it rubs off on the fans.Before they left for Tennessee,Jerry Glanville brought this to the Houston Oilers.Many old-time fans quit going to the games because of the odious clods Glanville attracted.

    Philly fans are known for booing their players, draft picks, coaches, and Santa Claus.

    But when it comes down to out right thugs... It's the Raider fans all day.

    Philadelphia Eagles fans are the WORST fans in all of sports. I wouldn't piss in an Eagles fans mouth if their insides were on fire.

    The true Raider nation is the ones that dress up. They are there to have fun and support the Raiders. Some of them have had their particular custom for as long as they have been fans. Tweaking it regularly during the years to express themselves. It is the common fan that thinks it can resort to drunken violence.

    The 'culture' of the Raiders has to been that of violence and win at all costs. The fans follow the lead set by the team, and the team follows the coach. Violence in sports/stands has been on a massive upswing in ALL sports......just as it has been everywhere else in our culture. However, I don't go to any NFL games that the Raiders are at. I just don't feel safe.

    No, you can't judge everyone by the actions of few. But, WTF man!?!? First the Dodger/Giants incident, and now this? Everyone needs to step back and realize that these are our national past-times and not the center of our lives.

    seems so....but I thought Philly fans were the defacto worst fans.

    Hmmmm, perhaps spike tv should have deadliest warrior do Raider nation vs. Philly Eagles fans.

    Who is deadliest?

    Raider fans stank up Candlestick Park Saturday and turned 49ers fans into animals. All the Raiders do is, "Just offend, Baby." The best thing the NFL could do is ban booze and the Raiders and we would return decency to the game. Either that, or change their colors to pink silver. Here's to 0-16 in Oakland.

    As much as I love football, it is a game. There is no need for such violence just because someone is cheering for another team. It's definitely not worth the jail time...

    Without a doubt! I went to a Raiders game quite a few years back. There were drunken fights in the stands and people falling off balconies, being taken to the hospital.....and that was a preseason game in Arizona!

    Agreed! Al Davis has fostered/empowered/enabled this effort in his entirety as "owner". Since his current pictures have him looking rather unhealthy, I can only presume he's too 'mean' to die.
