Raiders have perfect response after Harry Styles disses them

Wednesday July 29th, 2015

English boy band One Direction was at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., on Tuesday night, so naturally at one point the band's conversation between songs turned to the NFL.

One of the band's members, noted Packers fan Harry Styles, took the opportunity to appeal to the concert-goers at the Chiefs' home stadium by dissing one of their biggest rivals: the Oakland Raiders. 

“I support the Raiders—said no one ever!” yelled Styles, who isn't a big fan of wearing non-Green Bay sports jerseys, to the Kansas City crowd at one point during the concert.

That's a low blow to a fan base that hasn't seen its team make the playoffs since 2002, but the Raiders were ready to go with a comeback directly involving Styles' band mate, Liam Payne. 

Awkward indeed. Your move, Harry.
