Pictures from my seats last Sunday in Oakland. You can see so much by being there in person. Body language, leadership, attitude...all of these things give a feeling for the ebb and flow that you just don't get on TV. Of course, your living room is probably a lot more comfortable too.
If you click the pic, you will get the full size. Warning: they're awesomely BIG. You might want to right click and open in a new tab.
Pardon errors in spelling and links...it was tough to get this all hooked up in the limited time I have. There's probably errors in here somewhere that I just don't have time to find and fix, so just enjoy what you can. I'm trying to get to the Rams at Niners game too. We'll see.
Those fans in pic 1? They're greeting OJ Atogwe. All in good fun, I'm sure.
I have to say, Atogwe is a fairly impressive athlete in person. He's confident and he's strong, two things that help his ability to take the ball away from other over-sized grown men. Is that a Rams jersey chillin in stands in the background?
The Raiders players greet fans personally in the infamous "Black Hole." Number 55, that's Rolando McLain, the rookie MLB who body slammed Amendola. In the full size pic you'll see a familiar name wearing #7. #5 is the backup QB Gradkowski, who came in and won. Rookie specimen Bruce Campbell is over there #74.
Number 92, 6th round pick Eugene Sims is a 235 pound DE who apparently gets dropped into coverage on occasion.
Danny Amendola. Or the Raiderettes. Whichever you prefer.
Look at the attention they're giving James Laurinaitis. Any doubt he's the leader of this defense?
They say you can call holding on every play. Look on the far left. Darrius Heyward-Bey (Raider number 85) has a good left handful of Bartell's right shoulder pad.
