The idea of playing in London is beyond preposterous. Unless the NFL is serious about placing a team in London permanently and wants to use this as a test case. They'd need to make it very appealing to Davis. 

 

Staying in Oakland is best, AT&T Park (Giants baseball) or playing at UNLV Sam Boyd are all much better and more realistic.

How about the San Jose soccer stadium or Stanford stadium? Or UC Berkeley?

maybe they'll get lucky and play two of their "away" games in London also.

Granted, makes it harder to skip out on a $50,000 bar tab.

Memorial Stadium, parking would be an absolute nightmare, I don't see this happening. However, if it did, Cheapskate Hill would be packed on game days.

The Raiders are pathetic, a novelty at this point. Why would anyone embrase this team? I don't get it. If your wife packed up and left you would you still care? 

 

So lose the corny black & silver faice paint, footed pajamas, Chucky Dolls and embrase your local team. The Raiders are now a novelty lounge act in Vegas, nothing more.

You'd still root for them? How? They totally sold out. But most Raider fans are bandwagoners and have never even been to California anyway. Am I wrong Steven?

I’m no Raider fan but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The Raider fans I know are all from California and are among the hardest core fans and gluttons for punishment that I know.

With the way Vegas has embraced the Golden Knights too, I don't think the Raiders are going to be treated as a novelty once they get there.

You're an Eagles fan why do you care at all what the Raiders do?

 

Really most Raider fans have never been to California? Based on what? You're one of those guys that just says a lot of stuff with nothing but your gut to back it up.

Who said anything about SD spending money to get these Raiders games! This is a temporary thing, the stadium is still in tact for most part and money would be coming from the Raiders in terms of rent, concessions etc.

Do you really think the Raiders would go to a city that isn't going to spend any money to make it happen?   Very seriously doubt it.

SAN DIEGO has a huge populace that roots for the Raiders and Oakland citizens show up in mass when they played the Chargers. It was always a thing here every time they played each other in SD. It's really not a big stretch to see this...Geez.:shrug:

Agreed, huge fan base, plus all the fans from their LA days.

SD is a good one year solution. The Raiders have probably the largest built in NFL fan base up and down CA. They are still the most popular team in LA arguably.

Interesting

 

Raiders are hiring NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock as their general manager, league sources tell ESPN. The announcement will be made as early as today
