Following the announcement earlier this weeek that the Oakland Raiders would play a home game in London next season, more news related to the Raiders in the United Kingdom has started to surface.
Reportedly, a man wearing a Raiders shirt stripped down to nothing recently at a British Airport and was tasered according to the Manchester Evening News:
A 52-year-old guy in a Raiders T-shirt stepped off a plane at the Manchester Airport last week, denuded himself and proceeded to get Tasered by local authorities.
Of course, this drunken fan overseas had to be wearing a Raiders shirt. Typical.
Regardless of this fan losing his mind in Manchester, the Raiders will head to England next season. The disappointing part about the Raiders heading overseas for a game, besides the obvious, is that it will be considered one of their home games.
Although there may be a problem with O.co Coliseum, if the team signs another short-term lease, in terms of playing a home game elsewhere, it seems as though Terrelle Pryor and company will be making the trip regardless of their stadium situation.
