As a result, organisations might be prep… Read More “AWODUMILA: Defining your reporting boundary”

Simply mentioning that the Raiders are 0–3 at the moment feels like an incredibly loaded statement. Following their 24–22 loss to the Titans, a team featuring Derek Carr, Davante Adams and Maxx Crosby are buried quite deeply in the recesses of the AFC West. It is a place we cannot imagine, with even the wildest corners of our imagination, that they emerge from. Were they in another conference—another division, even—… Read More “The Raiders Are Still Winless in the McDaniels Era. What Now?”
