Oakland Raiders are pretty happy to see the tuck rule go

Oakland RaidersNFL owners are expected to vote next week on a proposal from the league’s competition committee to eliminate the tuck rule, and no team seems happier about the impending change than the Oakland Raiders.

The team’s official Twitter account sent the following tweet Thursday afternoon:

For you young folks who didn’t realize the Raiders were actually good once upon a time, the team lost a divisional playoff game to the New England Patriots 16-13 in the 2001 season after the Pats benefited from a call thanks to the tuck rule. The rule is ridiculous and should have been eliminated a decade ago. Hopefully the owners finally will do the right thing and get rid of it. The vote will take place at the owners’ meetings in Phoenix next week.
