Oakland Raiders April Fools a month late but still good humor
The Oakland Raiders will always be known as the "Silver and Black."
OR will they?
The San Francisco 49ers recently revealed a new black alternate uniform. The Raiders responded with some eye catching news that left many alarmed and confused.
Oakland released the story and accompanying image to show off their soon to be new uniform. No more Silver an Black but rather the look will be Gold and Black. It seemed to be a done deal from the Raider perspective.
Raider fans took to the airwaves, digital waves, mobile waves, surf waves (?) and whatever wave they could commandeer send their widespread disapproval.
In the end it was a well time joke and it got a lot of people. Well done Raiders!
