Never been to the Coliseum, but I'm definitely making it out there this year and next... to get my own memories locked in... anything else would be uncivilized...

Been to a ton of games (considering my location)

Seen them play the broncos, chargers, Bucs (after the SB loss), Bills, and a couple of others.

Always had a great time. Atmosphere is second to none.

Shouldn't be hard to find tickets... I know a few friends not renewing season tickets this year.
Some 20 year plus holders.... quite a few Black Hole seats I know will be available.

I think my favorite was when I was in middle school (1970 or 1971) and we were at the 50 yard line in the bleacher seats right behind the KC Chiefs.  It was a good game with the teams battling all game long.  Blanda was on a roll in the FG department.  Hubbard was busting guys up the middle and even Lamonica had a pretty good game. 

The thing I remember most was someone in the stands had a trumpet and started playing "Taps" in the closing moments and the Chiefs' players started flipping us (him) off and were generally pissed.  The Coliseum was rockin' after that!

Been going to Oakland games since they returned in 95. Was present during the Gruden/Callahan years, made nearly every home game during that span. Place was OFF THE HOOK. In fact, it was basically a free for all as soon as the gates opened.

Sat through season tickets with J fat ass. Gave up my tickets in his second year, I had enough since the SB loss. Went to a fair number of games, and I was one of the ones sitting on the half full stadium, through blackouts etc. It was sad, and depressing.

Good times? So many, I can't name them all. Playoff games, Miami, Baltimore, Titans, AFC divisional games. Alcohol in excess, fights, chaos, and general madness during those years.

Now THAT sounds like a damn good time!!!  Woulda loved to have been around.  We were tearing it up over on East Coast those years too, though!

I cant post pics on our site anymore, not sure how to do it...

1984.  Matt Millen punches Pats owner in the mouth after a playoff game. Safe to say he would have never played another down if that was today, lol :)))

This has to go down for one of the greatest moments in the Oakland Coliseum history.

Not too many people can get a whole stadium dancing like Marshawn did!
