February 20, 1961

The Raiders, along with their AFL brethren, got some good news today when ABC announced they would be increasing their payments to the teams for the rights to televise their games. Citing strong ratings, especially as the season progressed, the network said the total payout in 1961 would be $2,000,000, a $200,000 increase over 1960. That would boost the Raiders’ take from $185,000 to $215,000.
