Here is the shocker of the century, I despise the flat grey Raiders helmets. Also another thing you may not expect: I LOVE the rest of their uniforms. When I was a kid building my super cheap fantasy team in Madden, I would always choose to play as the raiders. Something about seeing those guys running around in all black uniforms was just bad ass.
Their uniforms are a symbol of their fan-base (well I guess it their old fan base now, sorry Oakland) … intimidating, rough and tumble. I hope that identity follows them to Vegas. However I hope those old grey helmets do not.
What’s the one thing that could make their flat back, no frills uniforms even more bad-ass? BLACK HELMETS, thats what! C2, C3 or bust. That’s my opinion.
Raiders – The NFL likes to try and introduce new jersey looks to the public, with the hope of selling them for revenue. But in this case, it’s once again a situation where “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The Raiders silver and black is an iconic look, and this sword-bearing new uniform is a hot mess. There’s no way Khalil Mack and his teammates should be wearing this. Total fail.
