Happy Red Friday Night Arrowthread: Las Vegas Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs!

 169 replies

Welcome to Red Friday! This weekend the Chiefs are set to take on the Raiders inside their house in Allegiant Stadium within the gambling walls of Las Vegas for Primetime NFL Sunday Night Football. It’s Raiders week. It’s Red Friday! Join AG to discuss…

Hello Arrowhead Guys. It’s currently Red Friday during Raiders week! That said, it may not be the best time in the history of ‘Raidering‘ to be a ‘Da Raiders‘ fan. Especially if you let Chucky tell the story! Wow, what a Nightmare on Jon Street. Nevertheless, it’s Red Friday and despite the Las Vegas Raiders current trials and tribulations the Kansas City Chiefs are still set to fly out to Las Vegas for Sunday Night Football on November 14th at Allegiant Stadium. Are you ready? It’s almost time for Sunday Night Football. Primetime!

Raiders vs. Chiefs style!

CHHHHHIIIIIIEEEEEFFFFFSSSSSS!!!!!

Rather than throw another hundred tweets at you. I’m gonna switch it up a little bit and throw some words at you. Words like, “Fuck the Raiders!” and “How about that Jon Gruden Contract?” I’m gonna ask you if you like Derek Carr’s make-up & mascara and if you know that the Chiefs have beaten the Raiders 68 times in NFL history, including their first meeting on the gridiron 22,637 days ago in 1960 between Dallas and Oakland? Did you know I only include Dallas Texans stats into Chiefs history when it involves beating the Raiders? No? Either did I, as that’s the first time I’ve done that. Which is similar to the first time the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Raiders on September 27, 1964. The Chiefs won that game 21-9 inside of Frank Youell Field because that’s what the Kansas City Chiefs do… they beat the Raiders. Water is wet. The sky is blue. Jon Gruden sues the NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Raiders. Facts. Folks. Just facts, baby!

Who is Coaching the Raiders?

Well, we know it’s not Jon Gruden and we know it’s not Al Davis (RIP!). It’s probably not Bill Callahan and it’s definitely not Tim Brown, Jerry Rice or Rich Gannon. Maybe it’s Napoleon Kaufman? I guess I’ll use Google and find out exactly who is the Las Vegas Raiders head coach. After seconds and seconds of intense Raiders research I have found the answer. The Las Vegas Raiders current interim head coach is something called a Rich Bisaccia from Yonkers, New York. I know, I know, I also thought it was more likely to be a Poor Bisaccia from Oakland, California but Raiders gonna Raiders. Here’s a little bit more rich information about the poor new Raiders coach:

Bisaccia began his coaching career in 1983 at Wayne State College (Nebraska), coaching defensive backs and special teams. He switched to the offensive side of the ball in 1984, tutoring quarterbacks and wide receivers for the next four seasons (1984-87).

Now in his 38th year of coaching, Rich Bisaccia enters his fourth season with the Silver and Black in 2021. He became the Interim Head Coach on October 11, 2021.

Bisaccia’s resume includes 19 seasons of experience as a special teams coordinator in the NFL with the Raiders (2018-20), Dallas Cowboys (2013-17), San Diego Chargers (2011-12) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2002-10). Bisaccia, now entering his 20th season as an NFL coach, spent the previous five seasons with the Dallas Cowboys as the special teams coordinator before joining the Raiders in 2018, including the last three with the added role of assistant head coach.

Da Raiders SITE

Something has to give!

The Kansas City Chiefs have a record of 5-4, while the Las Vegas Raiders have a record of 5-3. One of these two teams is going to get to that sixth win and attempt to win the AFC West. Also, don’t let me fail to mention that the other two teams in the Chiefs division are both sitting at five wins (Denver Broncos at 5-4 and the Los Angeles Chargers at 5-3) as this entire division is in mediocre competition to win the AFC West. Speaking of mediocre competition, the Las Vegas Raiders have obviously had a tough go of things this season. And while I think their problems are hilarious in many ways, I also feel for their misfortune and hope that they bring their best football on Sunday Night. AFC West rivalry games are some of the best rival games the NFL has to offer. Here’s to a great game of football on Primetime Sunday Night that will show the world the hateful-joy of rivalry we all get to experience with the Raiders twice an NFL calendar year! Let’s get a WIN!!!

Conclusion

It’s Raiders Week. You all know what to do!

Time’s Yours!

The officiating is horrid and gets worse every year. They need to be held to the same standards as everyone else. In fact there should be a show on the tube every week that goes over ALL the terrible, lame calls and point out the officals who make them. I bet the bad calls would get better in a heartbeat when the refs start seeing their face attached to the calls. It’s an embarrassment and I’m sick of it. It’s changing the outcome of to many games and ultimately the outcome of the playoffs and the SB in many years. Clean it up once and for all.

Don’t look at me. I may bitch about officiating, but anyone who’s kept track knows that I place the majority of the blame on the system, not the individuals.

That isn’t to say that some individuals exploit the problems in the system (I’m looking at you, Mr Triplette, but you aren’t alone) to their own benefit, mainly to avoid looking like fools by admitting on the field that the initial call was blown, to save face, but those who can fix the system are those who are ultimately to blame.

In unrelated news, Emerson University has decided that stickers saying “China kinda sus” are forbidden as racist speech (basically).

Now, I can’t speak for anyone else, but considering that China’s gov’t has been repressing Hong Kongers, Tibetans, and a Muslim ethnic group in Chinese-controlled territory, plus censoring the internet of their entire nation, along with other censorship, plus is looking to expand its sphere of influence militarily, I can’t see how any rational individual could conclude that there’s nothing suspicious at all about China’s totalitarian regime.

Now that I’m working from home I’m trying to be healthier overall. That means more exercise (which will be easier when it gets warmer again, but for now mostly means taking quick breaks to work out during the day), but also eating healthier.

Part of eating healthier is experimenting with smoothies. My first one was pretty good (a banana, canned peaches, oats, protein powder, milk, and kale), but my second one has been more of a struggle (a banana, canned pineapple, chia seeds, protein powder, milk, kale).

The problem seems to mostly be the chia seeds. I put way too many in it (100g worth) and I don’t think the human body is meant to eat that much of them. I was planning on making the smoothie a whole meal but for breakfast I had about a third of it and it took me an hour to finish it and it was difficult.

In the future chia seeds will be just a sprinkle (like 5g) to a smoothie instead of a main ingredient.

Best to watch it with the canned fruit, you can easily overdo it with the sugars involved, particularly if they’re packaged in a syrup. As for kale, if you like it, well and good, but there’s nothing particularly superior to the stuff over other leafy greens. In fact, IIRC it’s like spinach, where you really can’t make use of much of the nutritional value without cooking it.

That said, there are a ton of recipes out there, so do some searching. Also, if you’ve a taste for sweets, you could try making banana “ice cream”. That’s in quotes because it’s 100% banana, so technically it isn’t, but it still has a similar mouth feel. It isn’t hard to make, but it is one of those things where you are kinda stuck using a food processor. If anyone’s interested, I’ll share the process, as there are those with lactose intolerance out there who might appreciate it.

ok, just my opinion here, and I know it’s gonna go over like a Lead Balloon (not to be confused with a Led Zeppelin) but …

can we PLEASE dispense with the whole “Fuck The Raiders” bullshit comments? I know, I know … it goes WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY back (and I clearly remember incidents involving Ben Davidson and Len Dawson, among others

but that was then and this is now … these days, players shake hands and swap jerseys after the game, they’re all in the same fraternity (NFLPA) and they mostly all buddies and friends

when I see a comment that says FUCK THE RAIDERS … especially when that’s the entire comment … all I think is “wow, we have fans with the mentality of a 12 year old”

again, just my opinion … go ahead and downvote if you want, I do not care, but like BRaG, it’s gonna take some serious evidence otherwise to convince me to change my mind that commenting “Fuck The Raiders” is anything other than sophomoric and lame, along with classless

Stay Classy Kansas City

First, let’s get this much out of the way; I agree with both sentiments involved here, call them yours and Rip’s for convenience.

That problem I have, which isn’t a large one, with Rip’s homily isn’t that it involved a naughty word, though. Rather, to likely misquote the old adage somewhat, ‘profanity is the last resort of the inarticulate’, but it doesn’t mean quite what folks seem to think, at least IMO. What I think it does mean is in part that there are those who go from ordinary, polite speech who immediately flip to profanity when pressed for ways to express themselves in times of disagreement. That’s basically the classic, but since there are degrees to the condition, it covers them all, because when your other words fall so short you wind up there, it’s truly the last resort, as there’s nowhere else to go. You’re out of persuasive arguments or debating points, and have had to resort to what’s basically a verbal club.

But it’s the Raiders, so I’m not even going to bother trying to stop folks from expressing the sentiment, at least here. I would hope that in open venues Chiefs fans would hold it in reserve as much as possible, but I can’t influence that, either.
