There are many forms of Raider Hating. Most people flat out blast the Raiders but there are those who are much more discrete. Let's take a look at some examples of what I'm talking about.

Example 1
Willie Gault wore a Raider's uniform longer than he wore a bears uniform and yet there is no mention of the Raiders in this article. Gault's best NFL season statistically was one in which he donned the Silver and Black.

Example 2
OLB Kirk Morrison led the Raiders and all rookies in tackles last season and no one outside of the Raider Nation knows his name. Only 17 NFL players posted more tackles than Morrison and none of them were rookies. His name will not be unknown for long.

Example 3
The Raiders are always perceived as a group of thugs but have done nothing to deserve the rap in recent years. Let's look at some NFL players with legal problems this offseason:
1 - The Vikings love boat crew.
2 - Half of the Bengals.
3 - The Steeler rookie WR Holmes.
4 - Redskin Safety Taylor.
There are more but the Raiders have a team that is committed to excellence and haven't been in the media for legal issues for some time. This is just an old rap perpetuated by haters.

These are just a few recent examples of the discrete hater but look a little deeper and you will find more. There are plenty of loud front-line haters that hide these little guys doing their dirty work behind the scenes.

I don't care much for Cross either, but that quote is pretty funny stuff.

Cross, Simms, Jaworski, Theisman, and all the rest of the stupid announcers are haters because the Raider's used them as their bitches when they played football.
Look at Howie, brown, Gannon, and all the Raider's announcers they never, never trash anybody.

It's annoying when you see a former division rival bashing the Raiders out of spite. It contributes nothing to the sport and is one downfall with having mostly former players as commentators.
