Started playing in the early 80's and my local team wore Silver & Black because the team founders all followed the Raiders. I played 80 and later 84 and the best way to get on with all these fearsome pro's was to follow the same team. I was 18 and that was it. The '83 Superbowl sealed it. Played for a few more UK teams but always stayed with Oakland.

Why support the Raiders? The question should be Why support anyone else? :)

I have supported them since 81, when they appeared on World of Sport presented by Dickie Davies. Immediately I was hooked and as it was the Raiders that were on I picked them. Never looked back.
