    Told my wife already and I got the green light... woo-hoo!
    Think twice before you go.

    I was a newspaper photographer for 30 years and covered SB XXIII in Miami. It's not as great an experience as you might think. Take a TON of money and expect to go home flat broke. I was lucky, I was paid to be there, but I saw MANY miserable fans.

    I don't begrudge you following the NFL if you chose. But there is still no NFL policy prohibiting player protests at games. The policy the owners adopted was suspended due to protests by the players union.

If they can straighten up and show some basic respect to the people that actually keep this country running day in and day out, and they can win back the trust that they betrayed, then good for them.

    I have more of a Tom Smothers philosophy on this one: Trying to chastise Tom's thinking in a dispute his bother, Dick asked him "If CBS told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it?" Tom replied " Not again!" In other words, "fool me twice; shame on me." I will not criticize those that want to follow professional sports because despite the best efforts of enemies without and within, this is still a free country. But I will not be returning any time soon.

    I do appreciate your correction on the stance of the NFL. And thank you for your post.

    I was born and raised in Oakland and as a kid use to attend Raider games at Frank Yuell field in Oakland where they played before the Coliseum was built. They were a great and fun team back then and during the years of Kenny the snake Stabler and Daryl Lamonica, George Blanda, Big Ben Davidison, Tom Keating, Dave Grayson, 00 Jim Otto and many others. But they changed over the years to a bunch of jerks. They developed their bad boy image and attracted a lot thugs. I was a bad ass in my youth but never did like their bad ass thug image. Their football play deteriorated and for a long time have been at most an average or below average team and thats all theyve been. When they went to LA I was done with them . Now they are going to Las Vegas. I call them the Traitors not the Raiders. I understand its all about business and profit but for many reasons they lost me as a fan.
    ive always liked the 9ers even when I was a Traitor fan and I started really liking them during the hay days of Joe Montana and the others greats from that time. They are a fun team to watch. They have a great organization. The 9ers have a certain spirit that many teams lack. Ill be watching and cheering them and hope they go all the way. Go 9ers. Im not criticizing anyone for being a Raider fan, each to their own, just giving the reasons why Im done with them. When the teams started kneeling during the anthem I stopped watching them at all. Just started watching again this year.

    The only teams I fear are Seattle, New Orleans, and Baltimore.
    All three of those games were won or loss by a field goal. So it should be a good match up in the playoffs. But it wouldn't be exciting if they weren't good matchups.
