    Oakland Raiders fans have the reputation of being loud, well-costumed, and sometimes even obnoxious. Now, they will also be known as supporters of education.
    Every season ticket purchased and paid in full between May 1 and June 30 will have 10 percent of its gross donated to the Oakland public schools. With season tickets starting at $260 a piece and costing as much as $1,510, the donation to the schools can be substantial.


    The schools could use the help. Last year, the school district went through a funding crisis. Teachers were laid off and programs were cut. The schools need help from the community, and the Raiders are stepping up.

    Prop 13 strikes again. It's all about the kids.

    It's not like the fans voluntarily donate..... The Raiders organization automatically does it.

    I love that they are doing this but the 10% figure is disingenuous at best. Read the fine print. It only applies toward those who actually pay in full upfront as opposed to those on payment plans.
