RE: Next pro team to move
There has been a change overnight concerning the Saint Louis soccer stadium. The ownership group is now asking for $60 million from the city instead of $80 million and nothing from the state. The bill to put the funding issue on the April ballot will not be withdrawn.

The April election will also be for mayor. There are seven Democrats, three Republicans, and one each from the Libertarian and Green parties. None of them has mentioned the NFL while campaigning. The next mayor will be a Democrat. The last Republican mayor of Saint Louis left office in 1949.

None of those three cities are going to spend a dime on a new stadium.

So even if an NFL owner was willing to build a stadium in St. Louis himself/herself, you would still be against it?? 01-wingedeagle 01-wingedeagle 01-wingedeagle

What NFL owner is gonna spend his own money anywhere aside from Kroenke? Very, very few, if you do, it better be where you can make a ton of money.

On Oakland this article does give some insight into how that city might get a pro team again, even if it did lose the Raiders to Las Vegas, which to me, is a foregone conclusion. Hopefully, San Diego will be able get the Chargers back, for keeps, and without Spanos!!!

Even if the Niners did want the Bay Area to themselves, the Oakland Raider fan base would never accept them. Strange as it might sound, I think the NFL would have to take a hard look at relocating the Jaguars over there to Levi's, rather than permanent losing its Oakland fan base .

I do think it's crazy the raiders wouldn't give Levi the time of day. Put some money into making it a neutral stadium, green chairs and fix some problems, i.e. Shade tarp it could be a great stadium to share. I could see the jaguars move someday but not sure if a move to Levi would be the first choice for the NFL now, think it only works for the raiders-49ers combo. I would put the jaguars in the LA and move the chargers back to San Diego with ownership trade. Of course, you need a stadium San Diego which is a big ? Also, think the chargers or jaguars might be better off in the LA coliseum post USC renovations than sharing the stadium with the rams

Will Oakland fight to prevent the new Las Vegas NFL team from being the Raiders?

I'm thinking in the sense that when the old Browns moved to Baltimore and the old Oilers moved to Nashville, they had(?) to rebrand.


Actually, now that I think about it, why wasn't the new Houston franchise called the Oilers? I'm sure there was a lot of talk about that back then.

The Oilers took the name to Tennessee, they were actually the Tennessee Pilers for a couple of years. They had only been the Titans for one season prior to the Texans being named. The Texans did actually have to make a deal with the Chiefs to be able to use the Texans name, as the Chiefs began as the Dallas Texans. It would have probably been possible to acquire the Oilers name from the Titans, but I'm not sure how many people wanted that.

In regards to the Raiders, I think Oakland could try to keep the name, but I think they'll get to keep it. There's enough Raiders fans in Southern California and the Vegas areas it just makes too much sense to keep the Raiders name. Oakland let them move once already with the name, I'm not sure how much ground they have in not letting it move again.

No, the Oilers long time owner/founder Bud Adams, who named the team, had the NFL retire the name. I think most in Houston were happy with that too, it was nothing but a legacy of losing and heartbreak despite the emotional attachment.

As for the Raiders, they've already moved and kept the name once and the brand is so powerful, they'd try to do some kind of financial settlement to keep the name.

Please point out where I said that. If a billionaire want to build a stadium in Saint Louis, that's fine. The public is not going to contribute.
