Woodson gets No. 24 … again

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, July 24th, 2013 at 3:58 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Cornerback Tracy Porter Tweeted that Charles Woodson was given the No. 24 that Porter was assigned when he signed with the Raiders earlier this offseason.
Woodson signed shortly after Porter, and he made no secret that he desired No. 24 because that’s the number he wore during his first stint with the Raiders.
Even so, it didn’t sound as if Woodson was prepared to compensate Porter much, if at all, for the switch. By the sounds of Porter’s Tweets, he didn’t have much say in the matter.
“Well you Raiders fans…your guy has 24. It was TAKEN from me and given to him. #congrats…..too funny how this biz “works”
A short time later, Porter added: “Not mad at all…it’s just the principle and the way it was handled…..said my piece, now back to football.”
Woodson wasn’t available for comment. Perhaps he will weigh in on the issue as soon as Friday.

    Porter’s not being very bright. He can stand to learn a lot from Woodson. Complaining about his jersey number is stupid. The number on his paycheck and the number of Raider wins this season are more important.

    Division St. Huh? Blues there? Don’t know Chitown that well. We gotta cab and asked for the blues… He said, you after girls or after blues… And we said blues…. So he took us to S. Halsted. We’re we rooked? Granted were taking 87ish

    Purvisman says hello to everyone. He just took a break from shoveling llama pellets to send me a note. WordPress is holding up his reconnection with us. Hopefully, he’ll be joining us soon.

    Anybody need a load of llama pellets? ;-)

    However, I’ll remember Buddy Guy…… Like him a lot …..although my taste run a bit older like Muddy and Wolf……… The blues had a baby and they called it rock and roll

    I’m expecting three street FA’s to be signed by Friday.

  • Scourge

    Any of you watch “Bar Rescue” with that Jon Taffer guy? I watch it sometimes and have wondered if he ever tried to flip a football-themed sports bar that was losing money. I think it’d be a trip to see him try to “fix” some bar in Oakland near the stadium. (Note: I’ve never been to Oakland so I don’t know what the bars in the stadium district are like.

  • tonedeezy

    few bars, and they’re not great, but they’re expensive cuz the airport is near.

  • Scourge

    T, that sucks. :-(

    there’s some room to build immediately around the stadium, and that’s what they want to do. just need the money.

  • Scourge

    Well, it’s time for old Scourgy here to get his beauty sleep.

    Good night from the East Coast! :-)

    Free the Purvisman Now! :cool:

    :mrgreen:

  • arkraider

    Didn’t catch that SB666 going to watch right away

  • Criminal Element

    Porter was signed in the offseason, and so was Woodson. Woodson has seniority and is a future HOF. It’s not like Porter has been wearing the #24 in Silver in Black for any period of time. Woodson didn’t cry when he went to GB and had to wear #21.

    Just seems obvious Woodson deserves 24. Cmon Porter, get over it
