"Some of us are elected members of the Pro Football Ultimate Fan Hall of Fame. The process involves applications, essays, interviews, background checks and charitable work. You have to be invited by a member, it's not open to every random fan. Together, we've been working hard to change the image of Raider Nation. When people put us down, it's pretty upsetting. But I'm proud of what we do. Despite 12 years of complete defeat, and about $150 of face paint per season, I'm never giving this up."
