Raider Nation has spoken loud and clear! VJH504, who updated the progress of the poll and kept us voting, broke the news in the comment thread. VJH504:
Poll’s closed … and, it’s Raiders @ 10 PM (at least by the final results tally) on the 23rd. Thanks Raiders Nation for the voting. GO RAIDERS!!!
The Raiders ended up receiving 42 percent of the 6,522 votes. Not bad considering they only had 19 percent of the 542 votes when we posted the call to arms. The 49ers finished second with 28 percent of the vote. That was a four percent drop from the first posting.
All that is left now is to sit back and enjoy the 1980 Raiders edition of America's Game on Saturday, July 23rd at 10 p.m. ET, 7 p.m. PST on the NFL Network.
If you haven't seen it, I definitely recommend it. It is a great package of highlights, but what really steals the show is the insight offered by Matt Millen, Jim Plunkett and the late great Gene Upshaw.
