☠️💀🔴🔶 We’ve been waiting a long time for this game! I’m def planning on going, despite the fact I had a negative experience when I went to Candlestick for a BOTB with another Raiderette: After the game, one drunk guy followed us & yelled insults from the stands, down the ramp, into the parking lot🙄
Then, nine male 49er fans surrounded us & wouldn’t let us get to our car. They physically kept us in their circle (we tried to push our way through them and they wouldn’t move) taunting us & yes, that’s when I actually became concerned because it was very dark out & only a few people were around. We pleaded with them to just let us go back to our car & when they finally said yes, they waited for us to turn around & one of them thew their cup of beer onto us. These guys seriously needed to take a class on good sportsmanship because when it comes down to it, we were all at the game to have a good time, to be entertained & have friendly rivalry. I know this story isn’t as bad as someone having their face punched or anything, but from that episode, I will no longer go to those games with just another girl.
Don’t read this the wrong way; I’m NOT saying all 9er fans are bad, so please don’t take it as an opportunity to comment negatively about them (I will delete them if I see it); I’m just expressing my experience. Our situation was an isolated incident, so I don’t view all 9er fans in that light, nor am I saying there’s zero drama at the Oakland coliseum; unfortunately it’s at both.
I have also had positive outcomes at Raiders vs 49er games; there just seems to be so much more drama in general than at other rivalry games.
Remember, EVERYONE from the Bay Area who is a fan of one team, has family members and/or friends who are fans of the other team, so I hope we’ll all be respectful to one another at this game so we can have more frequent BOTB games! 🏈🙌🏼 ___________________________________________________________
