"When Afro was born, the Nation term was new -- corporations and other teams hadn't repurposed it yet. It's now inhabited by a true collection of Raider fans beyond the boundaries of the city. If you cruise the lot pregame, you'll meet fans from other states and countries, from Korea to Australia. Are some of them troublemakers? Yes. Just like there are troublemakers who are fans of the Cowboys and other teams."
