Bill Romanowski: Character Witness for the Defense

Phil Barber catches up with Bill Romanowski:
I have no idea what the coach did or didn't do. Nobody does. All's I know is I just talked to him for 10 minutes--I like his ass. I'll tell you that straight up. He's a straight shooter and I said, "If you need anybody to help you out, I got your back."
Thanks, Romo. I'm sure coach appreciates it. With friends like these? Anyway, he goes on to talk about why he's a Raider-por-Vida now:

By the way, though two of his former teams were going head-to-head in Napa, Romo's allegiances were clearly defined. In retirement, he's a Raider.
"As far as football goes, this is my team," he said. "I played for both of them, but I'll tell you a true story. When I left and retired, I got one call and only one. I was close to a lot of people, close to a lot of organizations, and it was from Al Davis [...] I love Mr. Davis. I do [...] at the end of the day, I want to see this organization kick ass. Because at the end of my career, they let me play another year and half.
