Booking Oakland Raiders Player Appearances
The Oakland Raiders are part of the National Football League’s AFC West division. They are currently based in Oakland, California, calling O.co Coliseum, better known as the Oakland Coliseum, home. The team was established in 1960, and although they’ve spent the majority of the past 52 years in the East Bay Area of California, they became the Los Angeles Raiders in the 1982 season and stayed there until they relocated back to Oakland in 1994.
The Raiders’ late iconic owner, Al Davis, rescued the team from potentially experiencing an untimely death back in 1963 when they played on an old high school field, to becoming one of the most winning teams of all time. In the 48 years under Davis, the team had 28 winning seasons, and captured three Super Bowl championships. The Raiders were at their peak during much of the ‘70s and ‘80s, with the team achieving their first Super Bowl victory on January 9, 1977 against the Minnesota Vikings, led by quarterback Kenny “The Snake” Stabler. Wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff played a big part in that first win with four key receptions, going on to become the MVP, while cornerback Willie Brown set a record that day with a 75-yard touchdown reception return. In 1981, under quarterback Jim Plunkett, Oakland met the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XV and they became the first wild-card team to ever win the trophy. One of Plunkett’s three touchdowns came with an 80-yard pass to Kenny King that became the longest play in the history of the game. The Raiders’ most recent Super Bowl win came just three years later in 1984, with the great former running back Marcus Allen becoming the MVP after rushing for 191 yards against the Washington Redskins. Today, the Raiders are led by new head coach Dennis Allen, with some of their key players including powerful running back Darren McFadden, quarterback Carson Palmer and receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.
