While Patriots fans will forever celebrate the tuck rule, which reversed what appeared to be a game-clinching fumble recovered by the Charles Woodson in the 2001 AFC Divisional playoffs, the Raiders are apparently still not over it.
The NFL Network sent out a tweet July 18 to promote the re-airing of the game, played on Jan. 19, 2002, which the Patriots won 16-13 and eventually led to their first Super Bowl title, on the league-owned network. And based on the Raiders' response on Twitter, it's safe to assume that neither Raiders fans or players from that team were tuned in.
We've gotten over it, why haven't you? RT @nflnetwork: Patriots. Raiders. Tuck Rule. Right now.— OAKLAND RAIDERS (@RAIDERS) July 19, 2013
Although they initially said they've moved on, they quickly followed with the right call.
Upon further review, nope, we're not over it. RT @nflnetwork: Patriots. Raiders. Tuck Rule. Right now.— OAKLAND RAIDERS (@RAIDERS) July 19, 2013
Fortunately for the Raiders, the NFL has done away with the tuck rule. However, it will never change what happened that fateful night in January.
Safe to say they'll never be over it.
