Re: “A's Might Have Perfect 2020 Vision

I'm cautiously optimistic, but I don't think the Coliseum site should be on the table at all. It's still a great location for sports, and the vacuum left by the departure of the NFL and NBA will be filled. Why waste all that infrastructure by turning it into an office park or affordable housing?

Re: “At Cam Anh, Banh Mi Dreams Come True

Fantastic story. So happy for her, and for me, as I loved Cam Huong!

Re: “Raiders ‘Global’ Brand Is a Myth

Time will tell whether the Raiders will succeed in Vegas. Im done after 45 years of being a supporter though. Raider Nation has always been corny to me, and will be put to the test. A weekend in Vegas will cost what my season tickets do.

Interestingly, Jason Cole reported that Davis agreed to defend and indemnify the NFL and the other 31 clubs in any litigation arising out of the move. Im having trouble believing theyd be that stupid, frankly, but you never know. Each club and the league will hire the most expensive lawyers in town, nevermind any potential verdict following an astronomically expensive jury trial, if it gets that far, and Davis will pay for it all, if the report is true.

At the end of the day, if youre not proud of being from Oakland, and they are the only home grown franchise, they should leave and never mention the word Oakland again. The only upside of the move has been how it has revealed so many Raider fans that travel to and tailgate in Oakland, who actually hate the city. Funny how they never mentioned that before.

Re: “Lawsuit Alleges Ankle Monitoring Practices Are Akin to Extortion

I'm a local criminal defense attorney and LCA is a great alternative to actual custody time, even at $25 ($28, here) a day. I've had countless clients keep their jobs and other responsibilities because of it. 120 days is standard for a 3rd DUI anyway, so it's not like this was his first, or even second, offense. The author omits that fact, if he was aware of it.

Re: “As Mack Holds Out, Raiders Play with Fire

Raiders are like the Harlem Globetrotters, except they always lose and no one laughs.

Re: “Why Hasn’t Oakland Sued the NFL Yet?

Incredibly disappointing that this hasn't already happened.

Re: “NFL Anthem Policy Shows Owners’ Cowardice, Not Patriotism

The Raiders leaving for a second time, plus this crap, is resulting in the most passionate sports fans I've ever known (Oakland Raider fans) giving up the NFL entirely. Never thought I would see the day.
