Raiders Accuse Nation's Burgers of Unsavory Advertising Practices

The Oakland Raiders are taking Nation's Giant Hamburgers to court, claiming the Northern California food chain has, uh, raided the team's famous trademark: Raider Nation.

Now the question is will the Raiders “Just win, baby?”

According to the suit filed last week in San Francisco, Nation's has been running an advertisement on a billboard next to the Oakland stadium where the Raider's play which reads: “When Hunger Hits, Raid a Nation's.”

While some might call that clever advertising, the Raider's call it “ambush advertising.” The team is accusing the restaurant of capitalizing on its fame and fans without having to pay a penny for that benefit.
