    +1 The Raiders lease is up after this season. Davis is wanting a new stadium which at the moment Oakland can't/not willing to provide assistance with. He's also looking at LA which would make more sense.

From a corporate and individual standpoint, very few people in this town can afford season tickets to both Spurs and a pro football season. T-shirt UTSA fans would jump ship as soon as the Raiders season would start......if they can afford it.

    And, by the way, the public transportation system that had the $32 million funding pulled from the city was hardly a "system". It was only 5 miles of expensive trolleys that would take the riders from downtown to just a few clicks further than the abandoned Buttercrust building. Pure excitement for the money. And that's another concern. If they expect a new stadium to be built will the citizens of SA have to pay for more trolleys to get only our visitors to the stadium? smh

    Stupid for who? Your list impacts different groups with separate interests.

    San Antonio folks will sell their first born for NFL season tickets.

    This right here. I spend a lot of time in Dallas for work and the place is full of insufferable dicks that constantly talk down about San Antonio. I can't support any team from Dallas.

    The easiest way for Raiders organization to see how the SA fan base would support the team would be to hold their training camp here. I would be willing to bet that it would wake up the powers that be in Oakland and LA that the team is serious about moving the team. Another factor would be how to include Austin in the demographics some how. I remember reading somewhere that Austin is the highest populated city without a professional sports team in the big 4 leagues. Now granted we all know that the only professional sports team in Austin is the Longhorns, LOL.

    Sure, moving the training camp to SA might piss off Jerry Jones but who cares.

    Al Davis took the entire NFL to court over the issue of moving to LA back in the early 1980s - and won. Upon the return from LA to Oakland, he totally did it without care or consultation. Incidentally, he had it out with the Tampa Bay Bucs with regard to their logo's similarity to the Raider's shield.

    So yeah, there may be some merit for the precedence that Jerry Jones c*ck blocked Red's Vikings from making landfall in SA, but I really don't see Jerrah and McHair trying to feud with the litigeous Raiders.

    The Raiders are the honeybadger of the NFL.

    And..., Mark Davis is trolling us.

    UTSA ticket revenue would suffer as a lot of hard core football fans would opt for the Raider games. However, it will not happen so let's move on.

    Yes, which is why I follow the Astros and the Texans. The proximity and because Dallas is full of dick heads.

    Build the stadium somewhere between San Antonio and Austin and watch the start of the SA/Austin Metroplex
