With training camp starting later this month, I wanted to get everyone geared up for in-season mode and to give you all a chance tell your personal Raiders’ story.

The questions are simple: Why are you a Raiders’ fan? How did it happen?

We all have different reasons for why we root for a team. For some, it may be because they grew up in either in the Bay Area or in Southern California and chose the Raiders based on location. For others, it could be because of a family member was already a Raiders’ fan and rooting for the Silver and Black is essentially in your blood.

Some folks may be Raiders’ fans because they fell in love with a certain player or they were looking for a winner to root for in the 1970s, 1980s or the early 2000s. Some may be Raiders’ fans simply because they like their uniforms.

Whatever the reason, it’s your personal story and it’s beautiful.

So, let’s hear it.
