About S&B Report

S&B Report is the media arm of the groundbreaking website Raiderfans.net, the biggest and best site covering Oakland Raiders football.

Fully accredited by both the team and the National Football League, the staff of S&B Report and Raiderfans.net has been a presence at Raider games, training camps and minicamps, plus the NFL Draft and other league events, since 2002. Not a game goes by without a staff member in the press box, on the field, or both.

Those staffers include professional writers, editors, designers and photographers who provide news, pictures and critical analysis that can be found nowhere else on the internet.

Whether it’s an in-depth look at the latest No. 1 draft pick, quotes from the locker room after every Raiders game or the hottest scoop from an inside source, S&B Report is the place to be for all the Oakland Raiders news you need.

And, of course, more than 40,000 of the most knowledgeable fans in football are just a click away at the Raiderfans.net forum.
