That’s Lions TV play-by-play guy Matt Shepard pretty much saying exactly what’s on the mind of any fan who goes to a Raiders game in Oakland. And he’s not wrong.
You really do have to be on your toes. You think some thug Raiders fan cares if he goes to jail for assaulting a Lions fan at a preseason game? What else does the guy have to live for? All he’s going to miss is another sub-.500 season with Matt Schaub pulling the trigger.
Shepard’s right — you better have your head on a swivel. Of course there will be Internet outrage over this from Raiders fans, but they are so proud of being thugs that it seems disingenuous to get pissed off over something like this.
