    Raiders reportedly in talks about a possible move to San Antonio

    For more than a decade, the only thing that the Raiders have had in common with the San Antonio Spurs is that both teams sport silver-and-black uniforms. However, it appears that one of the NBA’s most successful franchises could be welcoming one of the NFL’s doormats to its neighborhood.

    According to a report in the San Antonio Express-News, Raiders owner Mark Davis has been talking with San Antonio officials about possibly moving his team to that city. The Raiders’ lease with Oakland’s O.co coliseum — which the squad, alone among NFL franchises, shares with a baseball team — expires in 2015, and talks with officials in that city about building a new, football-only stadium have not gone well.

    Earlier this month, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell mentioned the possibility that, after this season, the Raiders could play in the brand new stadium built for the 49ers. That idea is surely not popular among those respective fan bases, who have a bitter rivalry.

    Of course, Davis’s legendary father, Al, relocated the franchise twice; from Oakland to Los Angeles in 1982, and then back to Oakland in 1995. Over the years, teams have floated the idea of moving to San Antonio, often as a means of gaining leverage in stadium negotiations with their home cities. The Express-News story points out that NFL teams such as the Saints, Vikings, Cardinals and Chargers have previously been linked to San Antonio.

    In the Alamodome, San Antonio does have a facility ready to host football, although the Raiders would surely press for upgrades and/or expansions. Any move would require the approval of at least 24 of the NFL’s 32 teams. Among other issues, the league would have to weigh the implications of the Raiders moving from the country’s sixth-largest media market, according to Nielsen, to its 36th.


    This former editor and part-time writer at The Post is now happy to prove that if you combine 'blowhard' and 'blaggard,' you get 'blogger.' He previously had used 'Desmond Bieler' as his byline, but feels that shortening the first name to 'Des' nicely conveys his ever-decreasing gravitas.

    Yeah, ancient stadiums cut into the bottom line. Even Solider Field they just kept the exterior and gutted the innards, no?

    Packers are the only team that can get away w/ old ass stadium.
