    Default Oakland Raiders to San Antonio

    Thought this was interesting. It would be great for San Antonio. I know we have been wanting a pro team for a while.

    It would kill UTSA. With that said, I don't think it will happen for a number of reasons:

    1) Jerry Jones
    2) Houston Texans
    3) Necessary upgrades to the Alamodome
    4) SA is the 37th largest TV market (NFL owners no like to lose that revenue)

    I'm fine with SA never having an NFL team because it would hurt UTSA if they did. Plus, I live in a city with an NFL team already.

    I have no interest in NFL in SA unless it's to play the Super Bowl.

    Articles like the one below always had me thinking that SA was a Cowboys town. The Raiders could move here, but I'd think they would run into a good number of Cowboys fans that they would need to win over.

    "No one loves San Antonio more than the Dallas Cowboys," Jones said on KZDC-AM on Tuesday. "I think they may be a bigger percentage of the population that are Cowboys fans in San Antonio than they maybe are in the Metroplex. We certainly cherish our relationship with San Antonio, albeit we don't have a specific time (on a return).

    I think they could win over San Antonio. This city seems to have a lot of support for their sports teams...just look at what utsa has done. With that being said, I would be surprised if it actually happened.

    The raiders will move to LA.

    Raiders have always been my NFL team (born in the 80s in LA).

    So while it's probably not going to happen, just the idea of it happening has got me all excite lol
