Default Raider on Raider thievery

The Raider way

Raiders take No. 24 from Tracy Porter, give it to Charles Woodson
Posted by Michael David Smith on July 24, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT


APWhen Charles Woodson returned to the Raiders in May, he said he was hoping to get his old No. 24 jersey from Tracy Porter, who was assigned the number when he signed with the Raiders in April.

Now Woodson has succeeded in getting No. 24. And Porter doesn’t sound particularly happy about it.

Porter wrote on Twitter that the No. 24 jersey had been “taken” from him, putting the word “taken” in all capital letters, to emphasize that it was neither given nor purchased.
♌Tracy Porter♌ @TracyPorter Well you Raiders fans...your guy has 24. It was TAKEN from me and given to him. #congrats.....too funny how this biz "works"��
Porter did add that he’s not mad, but he also suggested that he doesn’t think the uniform number situation was handled appropriately.
♌Tracy Porter♌ @TracyPorter Not mad at all...it's just the principle and the way it was handled.....said my piece, now back to football.
Woodson is a generous man who has given millions of dollars to charity, so it would be surprising if he were so stingy that he wouldn’t give Porter anything for the No. 24 jersey. But that seems to be what Porter is saying.

Tracy should play in a game before running his mouth about something so trivial

At this point he should be appreciative of being employed.

He and Bubba need to get together for a good old fashioned pity pizza party.

I'd be pissed too if I was Porter. There is a history in the NFL if a player wants a Jersey number he usually has to buy it or buy something nice for the person. For the Raiders to step in and take that number from Porter is pretty classless.

I remember Dan Reeves did that to Gene Lang when Tony Dorsett signed. They players need to work something out between them. The team should not get involved.

In fact, he should be so upset, he's not going to take a standard player's jersey number anymore. In fact, I think he should wear the #12 jersey, with HIS name on the back to represent the 12th man. He should be so upset that all NFL teams should retire the #12 jersey and put "Porter" on the back. Why? He's Tracy Porter.

Man, I will admit...I just burst out with this one. Well done.

We should blog something and call it "Porter on Bronco thievery" in regards to his time here.

Easy solution:

Give #24 to Woodson

Give #22 to Porter

Tell Taiwan Jones to find another number

This is 100 percent true. Porter should take numbe whatever assigned to him and be glad he is on the Raiders so he has a chance to make the team. It's not like he wore that number last year on that team.

Well, he was assigned 24! Woodson is the one that did not take the number assigned to him.
