Who is going to give them permits? Any permits?

 

The Raiders' original Oakland home was Frank Youell Field (1962-65), which sat on the site of what are now parking lots for Laney College..

Edit: a little factoid about Frank Youell I didn't realize until today...besides a longtime Oakland city councilman, he was also an undertaker.

You know, there’s a certain temporary stadium in Sacramento on state fairgrounds property that already has expansion permits in place for situations similar to this one...

Has St. Louis been brought up? The dynamic of Raider fans and Cardinal fans under the same roof would be the ultimate social experiment.

Would be a unmitigated disaster IMO as the Chiefs have aggressively marketed themselves to the people of St. Louis. Saw the AFC Championship Game at Fox Sports Midwest by Busch Stadium and the place was pretty full with 90% of the people there were wearing Chiefs gear. So, I'd say that Clark Hunt voting for the Rams to move to LA has worked out quite well for him.

St. Louis sued the league so I doubt they're even being considered. 

 

Meanwhile back in the Bay Area, local sports reporter Tim Kawakami is reporting that the Raiders have ruled out Levis Stadium. And of course Oracle Park remains a no go based on news we got earlier in the week... It's looking like Oakland or nothing if they're staying in the Bay Area for the year.

And Davis' comments on Wed reopened the idea they have options outside the region.

People who know they're dopes and people who don't.

Not yet and they must have one before the NFL releases their schedule

I have a suggestion for the Silver & Black...there were once two New York Giants, there were once two St. Louis Cardinals...so, to celebrate the smallish Midwestern cities that originally made up the early NFL, let there be two Racine Raiders, if only for a year.ūüėĄ¬† We even have a still-standing former NFL stadium.

 

All kidding aside, San Diego might be their best bet.

Does San Diego even want the Raiders? I'm sure that with the Fleet and XFL (?) there and/or coming, they won't want to go through the trouble to field a NFL team for one year before they leave again.

Too bad about not being able to play in San Francisco at Oracle Park.  Was getting ready to refer to them as the Golden State Raiders :)

I'd prefer the Raiders play in Tuscon next year just for the fact they would be the Tuscon Raiders.

Or, just have a travelling home/road (freak) show. Pick any eight non-NFL cities across the country like Boise, Louisville, Salt Lake, El Paso, Brockway, Ogdenville and North Haverbrook.
