You guys catch the fans spitting and throwing drinks at Bell when he ran a TD in late in the game yesterday. I can only immagine the classy things they were yelling at him. What a bunch of losers.....and it was the whole section too...not just a couple people. LOL.... disgrace to the NFL

dude, when you name a drill after a player to diss him, you just gotta step your game up, he had a decent game, but i wished he would of ran for 200 yards on them..


and yea, we know how the raider fans are...you can't tell me your surprised?

Can't blame a former Bronco for hating the Raiders...even former Broncos who become Raiders still hate the Raiders deep inside. Romo hated the Raiders so much EVEN WHEN HE WAS WITH THEM that he beat one up in practice.

I am not condoning the actions because it was pretty bad, but what do you expect when an opposing player goes into a hostile enviornment. Dawgfanatic, what would Browns fans do? I'm not being sarcastic, I really don't know because I don't follow them but I know the Dawg Pound is your Black Hole.

Tatum Bell got the spoils. But I am not surprised of what I saw when he scored. They/we are a frustrated and pissed off bunch. If he walked there with a peace offering and an Avon catalog, things might've been different. But after the Raiders had victory in hand, lost it and then Tatum's TD sealed it, you can't expect fans, especially Raiders fans, to simply boo. Like I said, I don't condone it, but that's the way it is.

But the Lions got the last laugh. That hat that was thrown at them got the royal treatment bigtime.

I think all teams have fans that act like asses to opposing players and fans.
I have read people say that when they went to Arrowhead they had a good experience and others say they were heckled.I am sure the same could be said for some Bronco fans as well.

So did any of them get kicked out for throwing drinks and spitting? I know at Invesco there is a Code Of Conduct you have to follow and if that was happening, you would be asked to leave.

Raiders fans are some of the worst in the league IMO. I've sat by many RAiders fans at Invesco field, and while some are booed, none are ever treated as poorly as Bronco fans in Oakland, where beer is spilled on you regularly, and threats are dolled out as often as hotdogs and nachos are eaten in the stadium.

In no other place in teh NFL IMO do fans act with less class then in Oakland, where it's cool to be an ***. MY cousin goes to the oakland game every year here in teh Bay in full fledged Bronco gear and he has some horror stories. Raider fans are the worst fan in the NFL IMO.... (not all, my other cousin is a Raiders fan, but many)

I agree KCLady. I was at the Bronco Raider snowball throwing Monday nighter a few years back. Olandis Gary won that game in OT.

There was a guy a couple of rows in front of us with a Charles Woodson jersey on, and Bronco fans were throwing snowballs at him, and on the field. A couple missed him and hit my Mom. I went up a few rows, and voiced my anger, and they chilled out, but there are bad seeds all over the league.

Is this the 2004 Bronco Raider snowbowl game? If so, I was there, and on my end of the stadium, I was sitting right next to a Raider fan, and everyone was very cordial to him. I agree there are bad seeds, but those seeds don't speak for the majority, where in sometimes they do in Oakland IMO. If it is the 2004 Raider/Bronco snowbowl (where it snowed like Crazy and Wilso nstopped Jordan on a 4th down wit ha massive hit) that game was lost becasue Elam missed the last FG for the win....

Exactly....not all fans can be or should be lumped together! In a stadium
where there are so many people...you can only see what is going on from
your area and view...every team has classless fans...ALL TEAMS...you'd have
to be pretty naive to think/believe otherwise!

Not the same game. Trevor Price sacked Rich Gannon in the first series of overtime, and Rich fumbled. Olandis ran it in for a touchdown the very next play I believe.

Charles Woodson and a raider o--lineman went into the north corner of the east stands and were throwing punches.

I'm trying to look it up, but my computer is sloww as molasses right now.

I think what KC and I were trying to say is there are snowball, beer throwing bums that are in every city.

Am I surprised that a whole section of Raider fans threw stuff at Tatum...not really, but I've met some really cool Raider fans too.

I'm not trying to stick up for the Raiders here, but all teams have some crappy fans. My mother is a Raiders fan, when I was younger my mom and dad would always go to the Raider/Bronco game at home. She has some fantastic stories about Broncos fans and how they treated her, most of which include beer being poured on her, asking my dad where he found his Raider (insert your choice word here) etc etc. I dont like the Raiders, but I love my mom and it upsets me the way she has been treated by my fellow fans. Just my opinion.

Every team has their dumb fans that step out of line. I have never been to a Browns game in my life, but I have read plenty from Browns fans on the forums I am describing the games. There are always some fans who act way out of line.

I know for years that at the Old Muni, fans were allowed to bring kegs and all sorts of things to the games and that in the old Dawg Pound that fans would have kegs sitting right there. I also do know that many things were thrown on the field several times, on one such occasion against Denver I know they changed the field position so that Denver players did not have to go near the Dawg Pound because the fans were throwing batteries. Most fans that I have spoken to though are not that sort. But they have mentioned some fans that have acted up and what not.

I try not to get involved in too many conversations like that because, in the end, all the y'all Raider fans can do is talk smack with no basis for it since the Raiders' win totals over the past three years about equals the Broncos wins from last year...

I asked on Broncomania, but the answer I got it kinda confusing.


Notorious fan moments

Dec. 23, 2000: Fans have a run-in with security after they attempt to take home seats from Mile High's South Stands at the end of the stadium's final Broncos game.

2000: Coach Mike Shanahan recounts being hit in the back of the head by an AA battery thrown by a fan in the stands.

Nov. 22, 1999: Fans at Mile High Stadium pelt the visiting Raiders with snowballs as they leave the field following a Monday night 27-21 overtime Broncos win. Offensive lineman Lincoln Kennedy is hit and throws a punch at a fan.

so in order to talk smack ones team needs to win games? i've never understood this argument. to be honest it really makes it that much harder to do so.

i'd just like to see some donk fans do the same just to get an idea of how little you have to work with.

i'll talk smack as always, and also always come back to eat crow when i have to. it'd be much easier to stand up and chest thump after the games are over too. :wave:

Anyone mind reminding me of the NFL rule regarding challenges?

How many plays are allowed to run between the play in question and the challenge?
