Whenever a team defies the NFL, it’s the greatest story of the day. If you haven’t already noticed, the NFL has mandated that teams paint their 50 yard markers gold in celebration of the 50th Super Bowl this coming winter (apparently they don’t want to call it “Super Bowl L”).
The Raiders, in honor of Al Davis, have informed the league they have no such intention of painting the 50 gold. Congratulations Raiders…you have pissed off the NFL, and everyone loves you for it. There will be no gold in the Silver and Black Nation.
Raiders host the Browns this weekend. Kickoff at 1:00pm ET.
