Thanks for this.

Yup.
Good thread idea.


As of now what I'm hearing about LA is that many of the owners have anti-Raider feelings. No surprise. I could give a crap less about LA, I just want the mighty Raiders to have a home that looks like the rest of the teams in the NFL. Big dates coming up.


I can't think of a more meaningful off-season for the Raiders. Thanks to the Raiders being on the cusp, this could be THE off-season.
