Visiting teams having batteries thrown at them during
games isnt cute or funny, or "personality" (with full
endorsement of stadium security) It is about real
player safety.

I dont think the rest of the league gave two shits
if they left oakland.


Wait until they move to Las Vegas

The degenerates that drift in and out of that town will make owners long for the LA Raiders days, much less Oakland.


I've never been a Raider fan, but I find it sad...

...what has become of that franchise, and how it will now likely be a sideshow in Las Vegas.

When I think of the Raiders, I can't help but think of this:



"The autumn wind is a Raider, pillaging just for fun."


Pirate's Booty Brothel will be there.

If ever a franchise was tailor-made for Vegas, this is it.

Just win, Baby!


I don't disagree with you.

The Raiders new stadium is apparently not going to be ready for three years.

They actually plan to stay in Oakland for TWO more years.

They have also said that Sam Boyd Stadium in Vegas is not a viable option for year three.

So where the hell are they going to go for the 2019 season?

And Sam Boyd Stadium may only be a 40,000 seat college stadium, but the Oakland Coliseum is a total shitbox. Why not just move now?


The Coliseum is home

much like the Stick, the fans don't want a new stadium.

The Warriors are about to do the same thing.

Three Bay teams in under 5-6 years. Yeesh.

Owners gotta own though.


At least people can still hop BART to the Warriors.

49ers moved WAY far out of town.

and I will be able to fly to a Raiders game in Vegas in the same amount of time it takes me to drive to and from a 49ers game.

Also, BART is not going to the Chase center. They are planning an underground subway to connect to the stadium from Union Square/Powell. Yeah, an underground subway in SF... Ill believe it when I see it.


The Central Subway is quite the boondoggle.

three stop extension to Chinatown, and that's basically it. It needed to go out the other side to the north side of the city.

And they need a second Transbay tube and BART down Geary like whoa.


I bet they are in Sam Boyd after year one

They already have the 2nd lowest home attendance in the league. As a lame duck franchise, I bet they average less then 35K per home game.


The Oilers tried sticking around Houston as a lame duck..
by TWO  (2017-03-28 16:18:18)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

and that didn't work, and they bought their way out of the Contract with the Astros and played in Memphis for a year and in Vanderbilt Stadium before they moved into their current palace.

The 2 years they were lame ducks in Houston were miserable.


Thank God I'd moved by then

I lived down there and was crazy about the Oilers. We left Houston to return to the Midwest in 1993, though, so we didn't really get the full experience. The Bears are the closest thing I've got to a favorite team but it simply can't compare. The first love is long dead, and there will never be another.

I know the attendance was quoted at certain numbers, but the dome couldn't have had much more than 15,000 per game unless it was a really popular team that had its out of town fans in attendance. It was incredibly sad in contrast to the House of Pain era, when it was such an energized and loud experience.


Oakland should kick them out now. *

Sam Boyd for preseason, Levis for regular season

Isn't Levis Stadium in Santa Clara the logical fallback option?


Does this look like a man who thinks that far ahead?
