Recently departed receiver Antonio Brown was clearly public enemy No. 1 among Raiders fans at the Coliseum Monday night during the team’s season-opening victory over the Denver Broncos.
Other Raiders fans burned their Antonio Brown jerseys in the parking lot before the game, but Raider Nation really brought the heat whenever the team scored a touchdown.
Beginning with Tyrell Williams’ TD in the first quarter, loud chants of, “F— AB!” from Raiders fans could be heard through ESPN’s TV broadcast.
The chants were heard again after Josh Jacobs’ touchdowns in the second and fourth quarters, and didn’t stop when the game ended.
A few Raiders fans filmed videos of the masses exiting the stadium, and you can probably guess what everyone was chanting.
Despite all of the fan chatter, the Raiders have moved on.
“I’m never going to bring it up again,” Gruden told reporters after the game. “That incident, whatever you call it, had nothing to do with our team’s focus or preparation. That’s it. End of story.”
And don’t expect Gruden to talk about Brown anytime soon.
“Man, I feel like someone smashed me in my temple on the side of the head,” the Raiders coach said about the Brown questions. “Get over it, man. It’s over.”
