Re: “Oakland Raiders Officially File To Move To Las Vegas

At this point, who cares anymore? The City of Oakland officials lost all leverage on broke ass Mark Davis by approving more ridiculous one year lease extensions last year. They should have squeezed Davis and required him to make a real commitment to Oakland (a plan and a realistic financing strategy) or get out now. By allowing him to canvass the world for a big money deal, they only played into his hands. Davis has no money and has never been sincere about staying in Oakland.He, like the owner of the Chargers, has no connection or allegiance to the people who have supported this franchise for a 50 years. In the case of the Chargers, ownership never even brought home a Super Bowl trophy in that half century. What happened to Spanos keeping his part of the bargain by fielding a winning team?The NFL owners today are money hungry whores available to be bought by the highest bidder willing to construct a new billion dollar palace for them. It is ridiculous for any public money anywhere to ever again be spent on venues for private sports teams and owners with insatiable egos. Look at Atlanta, they will play in a new billion dollar football stadium next season when they did not even need a new place to play. Similarly, the Braves will open in a new park this year not because of need, but because the suburban white Atlanta fans no longer want to come into the city to attend baseball games. Look at the Warriors. They have the best home court in the NBA at the Oracle with sellouts for over 20 years. The sellouts and total fan support started way before the winning ways of the last 3 years. Never the less, the shine of big money in SF sends them off into the abyss. No loyalty, no sentiment, no thanks to Oakland, just greed for more. Ask Jed York and the 49ers how that attitude is working for them in Santa Clara. There will be a time when the Warriors are not winning nearly every game. They and the Raiders will miss the true and loyal Oakland fans, when empty seats in SF and Las Vegas outnumber those filled with butts. In the mean time, Mark Davis deserves to be in partnership with a casino boss like Sheldon Adelson or even better, a group of wall street low life from Goldman Sachs. What he doesn't deserve is to be connected with a sincere group of folks with a sense of loyalty and integrity like Ronnie Lott, Marcus Allen and partners, who realize that the Raiders only real home can NEVER be anyplace but Oakland. Whether from a decrease in participation by kids and lawsuits by former players because of CTE, market saturation driven by greed or by ignoring long time loyal fans, NFL owners like Mark Davis will eventually manage to kill the golden goose.

I can't be alone in finding it suspicious that this policy is suddenly being implemented on the eve of the inauguration of a controversial, divisive Republican president, but had no such policy against demonstrations during the last eight years amidst the Tea Party protests against a Democratic president.

So Ms. Cooper wants to ban her staff from their constitutional rights to free speech and assembly because they work for a metropolitan newspaper? I'd like to suggest that under the current administration these rights may disappear so we better use them while we still may.

Years ago, former Chron editor Phil Bronstein wouldn't let lesbian reporter get married during the "Winter of Love" because she covered City Hall.
