Oakland Raiders fans twitterpated over DeSean Jackson release

The good folks that occupy the “Black Hole” in California–more commonly known as Oakland Raiders fans–found the news of the Philadelphia Eagles releasing wide receiver DeSean Jackson to their liking. So much so, in fact, that they took to Twitter to make their plea to the team to sign the explosive receiver.

If you didn’t see the hashtag #DJaxToOakland on your timeline, you were missing a carnival of magnificence.

Some samples:



Of course, you knew this was going to happen…

And the obligatory homage to the “Most Interesting Man in the World”…


Is Andrew “Dice” Clay using an anonymous Twitter account?…

Don’t get excited Oakland…it’s a paraody account…


The tweets under this hashtag (which is still trending over 24 hours later by the way) just seem to go endlessly on. If a Twitter campaign were ever the way to land a free agent, this one would be a winner.

    Now that the chiefs are out of the running it should be that much easier for the Raiders to sign Jackson, just reading the posts on Arrowhead Addict, what a bunch of snivelling losers, 5hrs ago they were all hot and wet about the thoughts of getting Jackson, now that they are no longer in the running, Jackson is a locker room cancer a problem child, gang banger etc, nothing like sour grapes, and the fact that he’s going to sign with the Raiders has them just pissing and moaning, I guess that’s what happens, when you pull for a team that’s been as irrelevant as they have been.
