Over the weekend, the Oakland Raiders made it very clear that they would like to ban former QB Rich Gannon, who is now a CBS analyst, from team facilities. Gannon made some comments that the Raiders organization found offensive. Today, the Raiders extended their ban of criticizers, and have banned anyone who has said anything negative about the team.
"It's just a move that we had to make," said a team spokesman. "We can't have people saying negative things about the Oakland Raiders organization. It's not good for our image."
This widespread ban will force the team to play in empty stadiums, without players, coaches and television coverage, a move that the Raiders front office fully supports, as they have no apparent idea about how to run a football team.
