You know what you have to love about the Oakland Raiders?

They've only won a total of 19 games over the last several seasons (for reference, the New England Patriots won nearly that many just last season), and yet...

That big-ass stadium is full of fans every game, decked out in all their Raider gear, cheering them on every single play. They're still losing badly as we speak, mind you, and it's pretty much because they're not playing very well. Also, I myself am not much of a Raiders fan. They're probably in my top five, but let's get real, my heart belongs to LaDainian.

Still, though. I just like to see people loyal to their team in good times and bad. It warms the cockles of my heart.

Dude, the Raiders fans are just a bunch of THUGS. They may be loyal, but I guarantee you that's their only positive personality trait.

You are unfairly disregarding their mad face-painting skills. There is a level of artistry and craftsmanship there that cannot be denied.

Uh, I can beat that.

The Washington Redskins. Haven't won a SuperBowl in over 20 years.

The waiting list for season tickets? Is currently 27 years long. And it's about $500 per seat per GAME.

They. Are. PSYCHOTIC!!!!!

Aw, see, that's awesome (although the Redskins are part of my prediction that until the more offensive of the Native American named and/or logo'ed teams in sports change their ways, they will never win championships. I'm looking at you, too, Cleveland Indians Mascot).
