Raiders owner Mark Davis: We're not going rogue, we'll have gold 50s

Despite what a high-ranking stadium official said on Tuesday, the Oakland Raiders aren't going rogue.

Team owner Mark Davis confirmed on Wednesday that the Raiders will be using the gold 50-yard markers that every other team in the NFL is using this season to celebrate Super Bowl 50.

Davis had to clarify things after O.co Coliseum general manager Chris Wright created some confusion this week by saying that the Raiders would be sticking with the white 50-yard markers that the team used in both Week 1 and Week 2.

The Raiders didn't want to paint over the A's baseball field, so the team decided to hold off on painting the 50-yard markers gold until the A's season was over.

The Athletics play their final home game on Sept. 27, meaning the Raiders should have gold 50s for their next home game on Oct. 11.

"Nobody respects the Super Bowl more than the Raiders," Davis said, via ESPN.com. "We had a little to do with the [AFL-NFL] merger and those types of things. We've played in 10 percent of the Super Bowls, and we hope to play in it next year."

Davis made sure to call 49ers owner Jed York to let him know that the Raiders aren't against the 49ers, who are hosting Super Bowl 50.

"It's just beyond me," Davis said. "I don't normally talk about non-stories, but I wanted to clear this up."

Each team in the NFL is painting their 50-yard markers gold this season as part of the league's "On the 50" celebration to commemorate Super Bowl 50, which will be held in February at Levi's Stadium and televised by CBS.
