I just want the full name of the team to be: The Las Vegas Raiders sponsored by PF Chang.

 

And then name the stadium "PF Chang Stadium at Al Davis Field"

Nicknamed the "big take-out box."

The Raiders should play at the moon, put a P.F Chang's there call it a day. Or just play it in Atlantis, because nobody will go to the games anyway

Raiders agree to play in Oakland next season.

There’s also a report saying the Raiders are looking to play a preseason game in Regina.

 

 

All this time and they're gonna play another year in Oakland? Is this a done deal?

The Coliseum Board meets in Executive Session tomorrow and a public vote is expected to be at their March 15 meeting.  $7.5M in rent plus $1.2M in back parking fees owed.

Mid April right before the draft is usually the time the league schedule is released, so i presume the NFL wants a decision soon.

The idea was to have this done by the NFL's Annual Meeting, which runs from March 24-27.  The Coliseum Board's monthly General Meeting is on Friday, March 15. Even if approved there, both the Oakland City Council and Alameda County Board of Supervisors need to approve the terms.  Oakland City Council meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday and Alameda County Board of Supervisors meet every Tuesday, but cancel meetings if there is nothing to discuss.

They should just take a one year hiatus at this point like when the mexican league baseball teams can't line up sponsors or stadium rent on time so they just take off a season.  LOL

Agenda for Friday's Coliseum Commission has one new item:

 

Quote

6. NEW BUSINESS

6a. RESOLUTION APPROVING AND AUTHORIZING THE EXECUTION OF SUPPLEMENT NO. 7 TO THE MASTER AGREEMENT AND EXHIBITS TO THE MASTER AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE OAKLAND RAIDERS AND THE OAKLAND ALAMEDA COUNTY COLISEUM AUTHORITY AND APPROVING AND AUTHORIZING THE EXECUTION OF A SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT FOR A PARKING REVENUE DISPUTE BETWEEN THE OAKLAND RAIDERS AND THE OAKLAND ALAMEDA COUNTY COLISEUM AUTHORITY

 

 

The issue which snagged negotiations was over the Alameda team offices/practice facility which was deeded over to the team, but the Raiders want the Commission to take the property back.
