    1st!!!!

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Quite possibly the final-ever game for the “Oakland” Raiders.

    Shrug. The city should have come across with the stadium Mark wanted.

  • marks hair

    Go get 5 sacks and lock up that dpoy award Mack

  • LondonAl

    A kowly third…

  • timetojam

    In all this time, they could have come up with a long-term plan for that area. Ya know?

  • LondonAl

    I’d be extremely distraught if the Raiders abandoned Oakland for a second time. A mark against the Davis family and the NFL.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Exactly. Instead, we’ve had years of nonsense from the city government.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Eagles have interviewed Duce Staley for their HC position, once again proving the Rooney Rule is worthless,

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Oakland knew what had to be done (provide Mark his new stadium) and flat refused to do it.

  • LondonAl

    The NFL and the owners combined have enough cash and a sound business model to build their OWN stadia but like much of of big business they cry poverty. I want the Raiders to remain in Oakland but it’s not for the inhabitants of that city to line the pockets of the NFL. I grow tired of billionaires complaining about being poor.

  • Skewlboy

    Whoever wrote the last article was drunk. The game is at Arrowhead not at the O.co coliseum

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Your stand is the principled and arguably correct one. But it will likely cost Oakland the Raiders.

  • LondonAl

    My point is why should the citizens cough up the cash when the NFL is awash with money?

  • Stabler

    Thumbs up for the correct use of “stadia”, but thumbs down because it looks and sounds pretentious. So you get no thumbs!

  • Stabler

    It feels like “they” have already decided to give the award to Josh Norman this year. I bet both Mack and C Wood finish in the top five in the voting, however.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Because other cities are willing to do so. Oakland either has to match their funds or lose the team.

  • DUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCEEEEEEE

  • Nice Mark pun

  • Stabler

    Please shut the bathroom door, everyone can hear you.

  • LondonAl

    No. The NFL has economic power and with it come responsibility. They aught to respect the fans and the team’s history.

  • rifflicks

    So the NFL should build, staff, pay property taxes, and maintain Billion Dollar + stadiums to use up to 14 days a year…..and you think your ticket prices will be what?

  • LondonAl

    I apologise for my education but you’re right. I am a pretentious so and so at times!

  • But they can get away with not doing it, so they will continue to leverage their position.

  • surry

  • LondonAl

    We’re hostages to fortune. I suspect we’ll be gone. A sad day.

  • Stabler

    Ah, the “s” in apologize gives it away that you’re a Brit.

    BTW, is “Brit” correct? No American ever refers to himself as a “Yank”.

  • What’s he in London Kentucky?

  • Stabler

    Famous for the World Chicken Festival held the last weekend in September every year, you know.

  • Of course I know that! Everyone knows that!

  • location is just a state of mind, maaan

  • LondonAl

    No. I am English but live on an island called Great Britain. However, I am not offended even Limey is fine hehe.

  • LondonAl

    I agree. Most governments make laws to keep the rich well rich.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    Actually, either is correct standard English with “stadiums” the preferred American usage, at least in the vernacular which is used in less formal situation. Since Al lives in England, I’d imagine he sees “stadia” in print a bit more often than we do, although the word *is* used in columns by the more educated of sports’ journalists nationwide in the U.S. However, these guys tend to have earned their degrees when colleges actually gave degrees that meant something.

    There are many uneducated sportswriters these days, uneducated in language and the art and mechanics of writing, at least. For instance, Vinny Bonsignore, who has been a guy following and writing about the NFL in LA for a long while for the “LA Daily News” wrote this recently:

    I thought he should of won the Heisman, but what do I know? #RoseBow #thatwasfast

    In fairness to him, a previous tweet used “should have” in another sentence, but that he even THOUGHT “should of” tells us something about his command of the language. That his profession is writing? Ugh.

  • LondonAl

    Thank you Sir 🙂

  • LondonAl

    I believe a compromise, an economic one is best but it seems like the NFL wants its cake and eat it at the city’s expense.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    They ought to be able to interview anyone they want.

  • ElkGRaider

    Amen to that. More than enough money made. Simply do it because they can…

  • MaddenRaider

    “Going into the 1990 season, Beuerlein was to be the lowest-paid starting QB in the league, at a salary of $140,000.[15] This led to a contract dispute and holdout, and although he eventually signed before the start of the season, the holdout angered Raiders owner Al Davis, who refused to allow the Raiders’ coaches to play Beuerlein.[17] Schroeder was handed the starting job with Vince Evans as the backup, and Beuerlein was held inactive for every game.[15]”

  • rifflicks

    because the city reaps no revenue benefits from the stadium during and after the season

  • LondonAl

    Journalists are often drunk. It’s part of their training.

  • Rico Stifler

    This is why I was frustrated and annoyed with Al more often than not.

  • ElkGRaider

    If every city said no you think these stadiums wouldn’t be built?

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    One problem is that the users of the stadiums are often not the voters of the city that finances those facilities. Most of the attendees of O. Co., for example, are not taxpayers of either Oakland or Alameda County. Thus, there isn’t the political pressure there might be were that different.

    STill, it’s been written many times during this several years’ long saga of who is going to re-locate to LA and which city will give an owner what he wants, that the days of a city financing a facility as expensive as a football stadium are numbered, at least in California, a state with a lot of problems.

  • rifflicks

    and when they’re built do you think you will be able to afford a ticket , or that the games will be broadcast for free?

  • ElkGRaider

    He chose some of the weirdest battles…

  • rifflicks

    Democrats control both houses of the legislature and the Governor’s office…..what problems can California have

  • Rico Stifler

    In some instances, he looked downright stupid, imo.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    LOL.

  • ElkGRaider

    SF giants were able to do it and their tickets werent/aren’t too expensive.

    A state of the art stadium leads to other acts/shows

  • rifflicks

    BS
