Carson Daly Is Exactly Why I’m Not Solely A Raiders Fan

If you’ve ever read my bio, you know I’m a Raiders fan to start every NFL season. Typically at some point during the season, it’s the Raiders’ play that allows me to easily shift my allegiance to the Steelers. betfinal بالعربي This season, although the Raiders currently sit in the fifth seed in the AFC playoff race, it’s the reminder that some more-notable Raiders fans are the worst people that is pushing me toward Pittsburgh.

Now, it’s not like Carson Daly isn’t respectable. As the face of MTV’s TRL, he’s part of the reason the network continued its daytime prominence in the ’90s (spearheaded by the great Kurt Loder).
