Roundup: Davis loves throwback uniforms

No team celebrates its past more than the Raiders. So it should come as no surprise that Raiders managing general partner Al Davis told Santa Rosa Press Democrat reporter Phil Barber that he loved seeing those throwback uniforms on Monday night. Davis wanted to wear the throwbacks previously but was turned down by the NFL.

    “The reason they didn’t want to use it in the past is the film cannot identify certain players in the throwback uniform — the silver numbers are tough to identify,” Davis said. “So teams start complaining. … I always loved those things. In ’63 everyone said, ‘Wow, that’s the best-looking uniform ever.’ But we just got away from it because of the filmwork. They’re always complaining about something.”
