Support the Raiders because my Uncle used to always wear Raider gear in the 90's - he followed them from the Channel 4 days and I loved the mystique of the eye patch and the shield.

He had a few football jerseys, which he gave me, there was a Bears jersey, a Dolphins jersey and a Silver & Black #77 Alzado jersey and I was taken in completely by the silver and black. Any other teams colours just don't seem right.

Genuine matchgoing fans could call that a pretty crappy reason - but I decided a long time ago when I was a kid they'd be my team and I've stuck with them, let's face it, we've had barely any glory in my lifetime so nobody can say I'm fickle
