Jim Schwartz tweets pic of Raiders fans 'welcome'

By Will Brinson

The Oakland Raiders are known for having very ... passionate fans. They're enthusiastic, if you will.

And that enthusiasm was on full display towards the Lions team bus as the team rolled into the black hole for today's game against the Raiders.

We know this because Jim Schwartz tweeted the accompanying picture of a few Raiders fans firing off the one-finger salute towards the Lions bus as it cruised through the parking lot en route to the stadium.

What's interesting about this tweet, besides the obvious humor involved in Schwartz calling it the "Black Hole welcoming committee" is how it paints the Lions publicly. After all, they've been the "bad guys" for the last few weeks if you ask anyone around the NFL.

But maybe I'm reading too deep into it; there's a pretty good chance that Schwartz appreciates this sort of enthusiasm from fans towards the opposing team.
