Leave it to the Raiders to still be in the news during the NFL offseason. For the second time, they’ll have their own ESPN 30 for 30 documentary. Ten years ago, “Straight Outta L.A.” was released.
It was critically acclaimed, as it explored the Raiders’ cultural impact in Southern California. This next one will focus on the Raiders, but more so on the former owner, Al Davis.
The title of this next 30 for 30 will be Al Davis vs. the NFL. ESPN will debut at 6 p.m. PT. on Feb. 4.
Immediately following the premiere on ESPN, the documentary will be available on the network’s streaming service, ESPN+ and you can click here to subscribe for this and the full library of 30 for 30 films.
The program is expected to explore the difficult relationship between Al Davis and then-NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle, as well as the Raiders historic rise in becoming one of the most successful and beloved franchises in all of sports.
ESPN dropped the trailer yesterday, check it out below.
