Oh i forgot to shed light on the fact that the Raiders and Steelers were the 1st 2 teams to reach 3 superbowls... an amazing fact considering that both dynasties come from the uber competitive AFC!!!
Sure the Niners have won 5 superbowls and they did it without any losses. But there platform was built on the Raiders model... spread the field with the deep ball!!! Bill Walsh had it pretty darn good with his binoculars and checking out what Al Davis was doing on the otherside of the Bay!!!
Anyways bring on our Next Lombardi Raider Nation
Talk about any other sports here.

what have you heard lately
I had the meaning but missed the experience.
Im saying it was uber competitive when they won all there superbowls back in the early 80's. the power swung to the Niners and Cowboys by the late 80's and 90's.
I'm just saying in a Raiders v Niners arguement/discussion... you gotta give the men in black there due props for creating a platform and then the Niners basically copying what they did.
Man your getting hyped???
I was hyped March 1st when our Free Agent signings started rolling in. Sure we spent a bit of coin and some cases overspent but as a Raider fan with our Scheduale, we sure as hell got a lot more to look forward to then the Niners. (You guys ain't done **** this offseason, except bring back a underachieving coach)
I got it pretty sweet xbay down here in Australia when it comes to Footy...
Feb-May Super 14 Rugby (Provinicial Rugby played between teams from NZ RSA and Australia)
June-September - Test Rugby (National teams play a Tri-series of RSA,Aus and NZ and Northern Hemisphere teams like France, England and Ireland tour the Southern Hemisphere during this period)
September-December - THE NFL BABY!!!
The only cravings i get is for hoops because the NBA is played in the same time of year as Australian basketball.... But the Olympics and World Championship BBALL keeps me occupied every 2 offseasons :-)
