OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Two days of practice in front of boisterous Raiders supporters gave Oakland's newcomers a taste of the passion of the fan base.
They will get to see more of that Friday night when the Raiders play their first home exhibition game of the season against the Detroit Lions.
The atmosphere in the Coliseum doesn't figure to be quite as intense as it was in Oxnard this week when fans were packed around the two practice fields to watch the Raiders work with the Dallas Cowboys.
The Raiders fans greatly outnumbered Dallas supporters and provided the soundtrack for the practice with loud cheers and derogatory chants toward the Cowboys. One fan even got involved in a brawl, swinging a helmet at a Cowboys defender.
