More of the usual boorish to criminal behavior that we come to expect from the Raider Nation...

Mass Arrests Mark Raiders' Home Opener


OAKLAND, Calif. -- More than 100 people were arrested or ejected from McAfee Coliseum for fighting, drunkenness, setting off fireworks and breaking into cars during the Oakland Raiders' season-opening loss to the San Diego Chargers.

Police made at least 20 arrests and ejections before Monday's game even started, said Lt. Tony Banks.

Fans ripped down portions of a fence put up to help funnel ticket holders into the stadium, while others inside threw objects at people blocking their views and attacked two officers outside a bar.

"Fans have to take more responsibility and act accordingly," Banks said.
Raiders officials said the behavior of rowdy fans was made worse because there were not enough parking attendants, ticket-takers, ushers and private security working the game.

Mark Kaufman, SMG's general manager for the Coliseum complex, said there was plenty of staff on Monday because the game was in prime-time and on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
"When everybody comes in at the last minute, you are going to have long lines," Kaufman said.

The Raiders travel to Baltimore on Sunday. Their next home game is Oct. 1 against Cleveland.

Sucks to be them.

Isn't/wasn't Tony Banks a journeyman qb?

See! It really is safer to catch an away game in Philly.
