They belong in Oakland...suck it up.
Other than the fact that they started in Oakland, there is no reason to say they "belong" there. The fans in Oakland never sell out the stadium and despite the fact there are countless buffoons hollering "raaaaiiidderrrrs," they don't actually support that team.
They've won two championships in Oakland, but they also won one in Los Angeles so it isn't like their entire history is in Oakland. To say they belong there doesn't hold up. That team can go wherever it wants and it isn't going to matter.
The 49ers belong in SF (or at least need to represent San Francisco). Everything about the team - including their name - connects with The City. The raiders and Oakland, not so much.
