    I think no pro-team should stay in Oakland.

    If the A's could get the territorial battle with the Giants resolved, they'd be building in San Jose immediately.

    The funny thing is that the City of Oakland is paying $4.5M on a study for a stadium that has zero chance of ever getting built. This had a lot of residents pissed off since Oakland can't even afford to pay its police force.

    Ha, the Raiders stadium would have less capacity than Texas Tech's stadium.

    Red Raiders > Oakland Raiders

    They need to move back to LA. It only makes sense.

    I don't know, to me, it always seems like the Raiders belonged in LA.

    **** LA and Ice Cube. They can enjoy mediocre Laker and Dodger teams for another decade.

    I think the Rams might go back soon. The city of STL didn't approve of the upgrades to their stadium which allows the team to break it's lease after the 2014 season. I'm betting they go back to LA.

    Maybe the Raiders will follow and it will go back to how it was in the 80's.

    The average income of a Raiders Fan is probably less than 23,000 annually. It will go down even more once Ice Cube is shot dead.

    Hahhh I saw that documentary by Cube. It was actually pretty good - walked through the history of gangs in South Central and Raiders gear.
