BOSTON (CBS) – Hard to believe it now, but the Raiders used to be one of the premier teams in the National Football League.
With three Super Bowl championships and a rabid following, they had mystique, aura and allure.READ MORE: First Responders Warn Of Thin Ice Dangers After Several Rescues
What was once a proud franchise is now the laughingstock of the NFL.
With the Raiders coming to town on Sunday for the Patriots home opener, 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger & Massarotti decided to investigate.
“The Raiders are a joke. They suck. They are arguably the worst franchise in pro sports. They are a joke. They are a punchline. They are pathetic. It’s so much better this way. I hated the Raiders. It’s a dork fest now. The Black Hole looks like a Star Trek convention. They lose the Tuck Rule game. The next year they go to the Super Bowl and get their asses kicked. Since then, do you know what their record is? 53-125,” said Felger.
“Wow. That is brutal,” Mazz said of the futile Raiders.
“Do you know what winning percentage that is? .298! This is their twelfth season since that Super Bowl and have not had a winning year since. Their best record during that time was 8-8. When the Clippers were at their worst did they ever go .298 over a 12 year stretch? Worst franchise in sports. ‘Commitment To Excellence’? Hahahaha! You suck!” exclaimed Felger.
