Oakland Raiders & Fans Against Violence Implement "FanShake" Program!
John Doublin – Sep 10, 2012
To further drive home the team's desire to provide a safe, family-friendly experience at home games, the Raiders, in conjunction with FAV, have announced the new "FanShake" program.
"FanShake" is a program in which fans of opposing teams take photos of them interacting peacefully and share them with world via Twitter, Facebook and on Raiders.com "game center." These photos will be used as an example to others on how the color of a jersey or the city of origin should not promote violence, but rather light-hearted, good-natured competition and fun between fans.
"FanShake" moments will also be video taped and shared with the crowd at O.co Coliseum during home games.
The Raiders' code of conduct and public service announcements are only one part of quelling violence in the stands; having fans actually observe those guidlines is critical, but is easier said than done. The Raiders, the the help of FAV, are trying to help convince fans to "play nice" and have fun. The "FanShake" program is one more way to bring these safety rules to fans in a way that encourages them to adhere to them.
The new "FanShake" program will be debuted tonight on Monday Night Football against the San Diego Chargers.
