    Rick Gosselin: “I really think they want to keep the team in San Diego”

    L.A. beckons, but Chargers may see profit in San Diego

    Everything you need to know about the Chargers and Raiders relocation saga

    Joint NFL Finance, Stadium Committee Meeting Could Be Sign Of Delay In Chargers' Decision

    Due to the stadium drama that has been going on since our Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis passed away, there has been many ups and downs.

    Many praise Mark Davis for the roster picks that we have when it was Reggie Mckenzie and team leaders that actually gained players interests in Oakland.

    According to Las Vegas Journal interview, Mark Davis mentioned filing for a relocation request in March to move from Oakland to Las Vegas.

    I find it quite interesting that he's requiring Season Ticket Members to make their 1st deposit by March 3, 2017 when Free Agency starts on March 9, 2017.

    Some think that he's trying to get everyone's money, and going to skip his way to Las Vegas. However, that would be difficult when the NFL wants them to remain in Oakland.

    A relocation to Las Vegas would reduce the revenue income for the NFL from television ads, local sponsors, home team fan experience, along with with empty seats like Santa Clara.

    During Free Agency there will be some players looking at being an Oakland Raider because of the fans and the history. But, they might not pursue at signing if Mark Davis does not know his where abouts.

    Hopefully, they do realize the where abouts for the team is in Oakland, CA FOREVER when it comes to what the NFL decides.

    Oakland mayor presents Raiders stadium plan to NFL owners

    Here is Mayor Schaaf’s full statement:

    “Oakland is ready to compete. We were excited to be offered the opportunity to make a presentation before the National Football League’s Joint Stadium and Finance Committee in Florida. We want to thank the NFL for this invitation to share our vision for a locally-supported proposal that could result in a new home for the Raiders in Oakland.

    “Today, we presented a plan that we believe responsibly meets the needs of all parties. We made a sound economic case for keeping the Raiders in Oakland through the creation of what could become one of America’s premier mixed-use sporting venues. Ours is a project that enhances the use of the already-entitled Oakland Coliseum site for the Raiders and for the public benefit and leverages the site’s proximity to BART and other public transit options, Oakland International Airport and major freeways.

    “The Oakland solution for the Raiders keeps the Raiders at home in Oakland, in the country’s sixth largest media market that is demonstrating strong growth due to its innovative and diverse economy.

    “What we presented demonstrated the commitment and effort made by the jurisdictions that oversee the stadium land — Alameda County and the City of Oakland. I thank Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty and Oakland City Council President Larry Reid for their leadership. We have worked collaboratively with Ronnie Lott, Rodney Peete and the investors they have assembled behind this Oakland-based project. Together, we’ve created a framework that gives the Raiders a new stadium in Oakland that is responsible to the team, the league, the fans and Oakland taxpayers.

    “The City of Oakland is prepared to support this effort in a way that does not endanger the City’s general fund using the “but for” taxes generated by the project to provide up to $200 million for public infrastructure and transportation improvements. This will support a new stadium and ancillary development that will enhance the economic vitality of East Oakland and better serve our community. Additionally, the City and the County are prepared to leverage the value of the land at this transit-rich site to create jobs, an enhanced fan experience and other opportunities.

    “Ronnie Lott, Rodney Peete and the Fortress Group bring the financial assets and the capability to ensure construction completion, manage the sale of private seat licenses and cover any cost overruns – three things that are essential for a successful project to get done. Ronnie Lott and Rodney Peete also bring deep and extensive ties with the NFL, the Raiders and our community.”

    It's too late.

    Mark already has his eyes on Vegas.

    And Oakland is a sh!t hole and just getting worse.
