Since Al Davis was their owner, the Oakland Raiders organization and their annoying fans have a knack to spew “the NFL hates us” bullshit.
Yeah, so much for that nonsense after what unfolded in Mexico City on Monday Night Football against the Houston Texans. One could say the NFL should be ashamed of itself for how its officials handed that game to the Raiders and screwed the Texans. But this is par for the course when it comes to this league.
At the very least, it doesn’t pass the smell test ... like most Raiders fans.
Two members of the Denver Broncos defense certainly noticed. Brandon Marshall and T.J. Ward sent tweets that said what everyone not a fan of Oakland or in the pocket of the NFL was thinking. We think they’re being sarcastic, we think. Given how tight the AFC West is right now, you can see why they would have an interest.
So they're cheating now— Brandon Marshall (@BMarshh54) November 22, 2016
Did that game seem staged or was it me?— T.J. Ward (@BossWard43) November 22, 2016
Imagine if the roles were reversed and it was the Raiders who got screwed. They would be rioting in Oakland ... if they could find enough people to show up. They would have to tarp off a few streets like the septic-tank stadium they play in.
On a side note, thank goodness the Broncos weren’t directly involved in this mess.
