Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali called the Raiders dirty, .and went so far as to call it a "tradition."

"(The Raiders) are coming in and they're a good team and a fast team and they play dirty,'' Hali told the Kansas City Star. "We've got to come out swinging. We've got to be ready for that."

Hali would not elaborate which players were dirty.

"The Raiders, they come in, they cheap shot, they hit you," Hali said. "I'm not saying names. It is what it is. We've got to be ready to play and keep our composure, stay poised and be able to get this win."

He has six career sacks against the Raiders, and four in the last three games.

Ironically, both Bills center Eric Wood and left guard Andy Levitre said that Hali took cheap shots in the Chiefs' 35-17 loss at Buffalo on Sept. 16.

"They get ticked off, and when you get a team down, they're going to take some shots at you," Wood said. "That's why we weren't taking our foot off their throats toward the end. That's stuff that rubs you pretty raw."

Wood said Hali tried to injure Levitre's neck on one play after the whistle, and he tried to injure left tackle Cordy Glenn's arm.

Wood said Hali also played dirty in last year's 41-7 rout of the Chiefs.

"They did the same thing last year in Kansas City," he said. "You start getting a team down, and you'll see their true colors, and they came out the past two years."

I guess he is remembering the Bad As*** Raiders of the good old days, who also got a lot of penalties, probably because of their rep. But this is the kindler, gentler, Raiders, who also don't get as many penalties........ah oh well maybe.

This guy sounds like a guy who has a chip on his shoulder. Or the Raiders actually got under his skin... Good

He needs to break out some of the tapes form the 70s,,then he'll be happy he was playing 40 years later
