John Gruden may not forget which team he coaches on Thursday, but in a nutshell he’ll be sorry he made the choice of headwear. This Riders The coach was playing a riders hat while his team’s game side in front of him Los Angeles Chargers, But it was an old one.
Gruden’s hat was one Auckland Riders, where the team played until the end of last season. Looks like someone pointed out a mistake he had during the game, as he turned to the hat with the same exact font, but the city is reading Las Vegas instead.
“I apologize for not turning on the right hat,” Gruden said after the game. “Someone played a very good trick on me.”
The switch was popular enough to grab the attention of Fox Broadcast, and sideline reporter Erin Andrews was sent to investigate what happened. At the start of the fourth quarter he came back with a statement from the Raiders, who said it was a mistake that came out of habit. According to Per Andrews, Gruden is a big hat guy and the headwear he wore at the start of the game was probably already in circulation, so he put it on without thinking much about it – the difference between his credits, riders and size is huge city.
At the same time, it’s also worth noting that Gruden has had a Las Vegas Raiders hat this season, so it’s not clear how much water there really is in the Raiders ’statement, but I’m degrading.
There was another revelation that came from Lay Mayok, the daughter of Riders general manager Mike Mayok, who posted on Twitter that this was the only Gruden way to celebrate throwback Thursday.
