CBS Sports: Report: Oakland Raiders Owner Mark Davis Meets With San Antonio Officials: Possible Move?

I agree with the CBS Sports Network crew that the Raiders belong in Oakland and that San Antonio which is a solid sports market that could support a future NFL franchise would seem strange for the Raiders. With that being said the Oakland Coliseum or whatever the hell they call it now is not an NFL caliber football stadium. It is not an MLB caliber ballpark either and very soon the City of Oakland is going to have to step up and build two new stadiums. An NFL football stadium for the Raiders and an MLB ballpark for the Athletics or they’ll lose both of their great franchises. Two of the best franchises in all of pro sports.

So the City of Oakland has to decide do they want NFL football and MLB baseball or not. If the answer is yes the Coliseum needs to go and be replaced with either a football stadium or a baseball park. And then they need to look at downtown possibilities as far as building the other stadium. With the Athletics and Raiders staying at the Coliseum while their stadiums are being built. Otherwise we could see the Raiders back in Los Angeles or San Antonio and the Athletics headed to San Jose or Sacramento in the near future.

You know seeing the AFC North go 0-4 this weekend including the Ravens unfortunately at least from my perspective, sure as hell makes the Ravens look better. Especially since no one else in the division bothered to win. I haven’t heard much bragging about the Cincinnati Bengals lately. You know that franchise that hasn’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season. Has only won one division title since 1990 as well. Oh well like they say week one is still just one week and the entire AFC North gets to start fresh. And try to get that first victory in week 2. Betting against the Ravens or Steelers, the last 10-15 years, has generally been a bad idea. Since both franchises have combined for four Super Bowl Championships and five AFC Championships. So don’t they’re out completely until someone knocks them out.
