    Merry belated Christmas, everyone. My name is Svea & I was born, raised & still live here in central Ontario, Canada. I have been a Raiders fan for nearly 20 years now - the day Charles Woodson became a Raider so did I. My alarm clock every morning is The Autumn Wind and every single time I hear it I get the chills (living in Canada might help in that, too). Of course since 1998 there have been many more bad days than good, and every year (or sometimes every loss) I tell myself it will make it that much sweeter when the Super Bowl is ours again. I truly believe the Raider Nation, while the most loyal, is the most menopausal fan base in all of sports, but it keeps things interesting.

    I thought forums like this one ceased to exist, so I'm looking forward to the conversations, irrational rambling, salt & jokes to come. Many thanks to @Crow for the invite. Find me on Twitter under the same username if you so prefer.

    @CrossBones takes offense at your comment. He got over his menopause at least 20 years ago...

    She's a raving lunatic on game days. Figured she'd fit right in.

    If she can't hate on shit 24/365, we need to put her into a Rocky-style training regimen.

    So you've been recruiting in Canada?

    Thought that was @007's job although he's piss poor at it.

    That's because you're not paying him $19.95 per recruit.

    Welcome @MsAutumnWind

    I'm a born-again forum user after years messing around on social media platforms! I returned to posting in forums after reconnecting with @Crow too on twitter whom i knew at a previous forum as well.

    Only been around BR for the last month or so but totally enjoying the change up to twitter think the discussion is better here compared to twitter which is predominately snarky jibes and incoherent hot-takes.

    At Black Reign, we prefer our hot takes snarky and our jibes incoherent. A far better formula, I think.

    The snarly jibes & incoherent hot takes play completely to Twitter's appeal to me. I live tweet every game among many others and there's something to be said for the immediate reactions - I love it & I think many follow me for the (at times) illegible, heated rambling. The SIO crowd is very vocal and with that comes nasty arguments. Overall, the drama in Raiders Twitter really is a marvel and keeps things interesting. No one can knock it 'til they try it!
