Oakland Raiders fans plan to taunt Manti Te'o when Chargers enter Black Hole (Photo)


Thanks to the Oakland Athletics, who are scheduled to play the Detroit Tigers on Saturday, the originally scheduled afternoon game between the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders will be moved to 11:35 pm ET.

As the lone stadium that still supports baseball and football, the Oakland grounds crew will have quite a mighty test awaiting them.

Also awaiting a mighty test will be San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o, who will be making his first ever appearance in Oakland, which will be far from welcoming.

According to Twitter user Oaklandraida84, the following banner will be displayed proudly in the famed ‘Black Hole’:

The Chargers and Raiders weren’t originally scheduled to be a national game, however, thanks to the schedule move NFL Network is picking up the game which should get plenty of eyes on the banner.

As you’ll recall, Te’o was ‘catfished’ (somebody pretending to be a false identity, in this case a fake woman) by a male associate during his time at Notre Dame, though some have suggested Te’o was in on the hoax, or at least knew more than he was leading on.

Clearly, it’s going to be an event that will haunt him wherever he goes, though in fairness to Te’o, he seems to be taking it all in stride.

    Am a Raider fan and to b honest this is pretty immature of Raider fans doing this

    • Rob Base

      You obviously have class they don’t.

        Emmanuel, I really don’t like the trash talk that goes on between fans of other teams. Some people get into it. I don’t. We all love our teams and I am the first one to give credit where credit is due. You my friend are a loyal fan of your team and I respect that. The Raiders had their run and now they are going through growing pains. Charger fans have had our share as well. I like your coach. He’s a good guy. He’s got your team headed in the right direction I believe. At this point, you have personnel problems as do we. A few years from now, the AFC West will be the class of the NFL. Heck, they almost are right now!

        • Johnny Velasco

          Do you honestly think just because the chargers fired Norv, that your team is now good? which team(s) have you already faced that is on the list of “elite” besides the texans? sure isnt the eagles or the titans or the cowboys. you must be watching a whole lot of espn to get all hyped up about your team when your team hasnt done much. The Raiders would’ve easily been 3-1, with a close battle against the colts and the game we just gave away to the redskins. I would hold your tounge if I were san diego fans since the only reason you guys are 2-2 is because of a game winning field goal.

          • Nick in PB

            Johnny, you just proved to me that you don’t know what you are talking about. You are praising the Raiders and saying the Chargers haven’t done much. Well Johnny, the Raiders haven’t done much either but I haven’t ripped your team, not once. You, on the other hand are completely moronic. I haven’t mentioned the fact that we could’ve been 4 and 0, but I didn’t because we are not. We are 2-2 because of a game winning field goal and a dominant second half performance over the Cowboys, at a time when the Cowboys were playing well. And ESPN pisses me off because they hardly ever talk about any team east of the Mississippi so, again Johnny, you don’t know what you are talking about. So please stop talking.

    That’s the best you could conjure up? Limited bandwidth = limited results

    • Nick in PB

      Small things amuse small minds. LOL (see how I did that Johnny?)

      • Johnny Velasco

        One word = Dentures. LOL (see how I did that Nick?)

  • Prometheus

    Manti is gay and nobody cares.

  • joerockt

    Looking forward to the sad and depressed faces of Raider fans on TV when the Chargers are up by 24. The banner will be hilarious then, won’t it?

    • Johnny Velasco

      You sound like some bronco fan, predicting the score. If i can remember, the recent game against the “high powered” denver defense, people like you predicted the Raiders being “blown-out” by halftime. But….werent the Raiders hanging in there ? Even with Giraffe manning behind center ? “stay classy, san diego.”

      • RiCC JaMeZ

        Come to southeast SD and tell them to stay classy. Chargers 28 your team 14

        • Johnny Velasco

          LOL. You’re as funny as your name bro. Ive been to the southeast of SD with my uncles and cousins . Where abouts ? Highland Ave ? Logan ? Sweetwater ? Or near paradise hills area ? Skyline ? Lincoln ? Bro, ive lived in SD haha. Ive been to Chula Vista and seen hella Raider fans that actually occupy 50% of qualcomm stadium. Come on bro haha.

      • joerockt

        It was 27-7 at halftime bro. Hate to break it to you, but that’s a blow out.

        • Johnny Velasco

          A blow out is once the final whistle of the game blows, the score is “insert your score here”. Hate to break it to you but I believe the score was alot more closer than a blow out.

  • Jetlife510

    Emmanuel you sound like monti teo’s GF. Its a good way to hype up the game bro. Smh

  • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

    Only fair that we do something when they come to the Q then…

    • Johnny Velasco

      Lol. Stay classy, San Diego. Oh btw, I love the fact that Qualcomm Stadium is literally filled with Raider fans whenever its Raider week. I’m literally laughing my ass off bro. haha.

      • Nick in PB

        You can thank the former Raiders coach Norv Turnover for that one. He created our own version of the black hole due to the fact that he ruined the Chargers when he took over. And no, it’s NOT filled with Raider fans but they do represent. Now, the fact that any former Los Angeles Raider fans, which I presume most of the fans that buy tickets to see your team get beat at Qualcomm as often as sunshine hits the Golden State, is still rooting for that team. That’s what amazes me. Al Davis screwed you guys over big time and you are still stupid enough to put your loyalty where loyalty has fucked you over. Now, if you are a fan of the original Oakland Raiders, I give you credit. You should stick with your team. You guys have great, albeit somewhat nutty fans but you get my respect. You love your team through the worst of times and through the best of times. And you have great costumes!

      • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

        Love that you’re commenting with “stay classy” on a story about Raiders fans exploiting someone that exploited a young kid.

        Stay…well…douchey, Oakland.

        P.S. We’re not the team that had to tarp our stadium just to make 85%.

        • Johnny Velasco

          No you’re not. You’re the team that has to buy 25% of the non sold tickets just so your game would be televised. Pathetic.

          • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

            Pathetic? Not as pathetic as that group of boys you call a team.

  • CHIEFFANINAZ

    Maybe McFadden can hold the sign ….. He won’t be doing anything else

  • Bill Nichols

    It’s all good. Bolts will be laughing when he butt F U C K S Pryor. But then again, all you gay-ders like it that way don’t you. Can not wait to see a real talented Islander, make his professional statement game, playing his ass off against a bunch of perennial losers like The Oakland Shit heads. Karma is a bitch, wonder how many of you losers will end up in jail Sunday night. lol Need a lawyer, call 1 800 Bolts Win!

    • Johnny Velasco

      A talented islander in who ? Te’o ? Talented in lying he had a girl, right ? Lol. Sounds like you’re mad bro. haha. and how are you calling the Raiders “gay-ders” when you’re the one inserting gay remarks about your beloved chargers ! Lol. but realistically speaking, San Diego has more of a gay population than Oakland and San Francisco put together. Only locals know about Hillcrest. haha. “Stay classy, san diego. LOL.

      • Nick in PB

        I keep seeing the LOL after all of your remarks. I think you are the only one laughing Johnny. Shouldn’t you be playing video games on your computer before bedtime Johnny. Do your parents know you are up late trolling on Charger sites Johnny? Why don’t you have your beer and cookies and go on to bed now Johnny.

        • Johnny Velasco

          You seem old bro. From the looks of your default picture, it looks like all of your upper teeth are gone. Are you ok?

  • Raider Grant

    Go Raiders, and at least we have fans ! Boltless in San Diego

    • Johnny Velasco

      True that bro. Charger fans are most known as “fair-weather” fans. Accordingly to reads from the NFL and espn. Oh, I cant forget, San Diego Tribune.
