Re: Sack Don Furner

He's a really great guy that I have a lot of respect for. Always says hi and has a chat. I also respect him for a lot of the work he's done to get the club back to being popular in this town. However I think it's time for a change at HQ. And more than just Don. I think at board and HQ level some que...

Re: The Raiders front
