Brutally Beaten New York Jets Fan Recovering Slowly: How You Can Help

~By K.C.Dermody-May, 06, 2012

Fortunately Mohr won the fight of his life but he’s been left with vision problems and residual effects of his brain injuries as well as a massive amount of bills.

Fans Against Violence, a group that is working to help to end violence at sporting events across the nation, reports that Mohr’s “multiple operations were not covered through his insurance company,” and between his endless doctors visits, co-payments, prescriptions and commute expenses to and from New Jersey, it’s a huge financial burden.

Not only has Mohr and his family been put through extreme emotional distress, but the bills are overwhelming. In order to help alleviate some of their stress, a fundraising event will take place in Bayside, New York next weekend at Strawberry’s Bar and Grill from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on May 12, 2012. read full article..

It’s early Wednesday morning as I write this, the Captain having completed his night of work and the Raiders (likely) able to skip the first night of Festivities for the NFL Draft of 2012. I’m not like many people who are ‘day walkers’ on this earth, as I prefer working eves/nights to get away from many of the ‘anal retentive folks’ one usually has to deal with during a day … or folks you’d prefer to throw out a window for being a pain in your toucas…

Wow, talk about a spot on segue, as it IS a bit early to talk about whom the Raiders have drafted…since by the time this gets posted to the ‘net (and barring any unforeseen and/or unlikely scenarios) the Raiders will STILL be waiting to see whom is available with the 95th pick of the draft.

… Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm… what to write about this week… when all of a sudden my topic gets almost literally dumped into the Captain’s lap through the IM of one Kathy Samoun, an avid fan and staunch supporter of the Silver and Black I know via some ‘Social Network’ known as Facebook (you may have heard of it…)

Kathy and I start to chat immediately after I’ve given my daily ‘Happy Birthday wishes’ to all friends on the site, where she directs my attention to one of the charitable endeavors she is sponsoring via her organization “F.A.V.” – Fans Against Violence (whom you probably have NOT heard about, until now). read full article..

for the Local Community: Fan Reaction

~By K.C.Dermody-April, 30, 2012

Of course Oakland fans themselves are rather big givers in the community and beyond. Kathy Samoun is a life long Raider fan who started the non-profit organization, “Fans Against Violence.” Her group aims to improve and enhance game day experiences at professional sports venues in the Bay Area and across the nation.

I feel very fortunate to be part of such a caring group of people, just another reason to be proud to be a member of the Raider Nation. read full article..
