Oakland Raiders owner in talks with San Antonio to relocate NFL team

Oakland Raiders owner in talks with San Antonio to relocate NFL team

SAN ANTONIO - Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis and two top lieutenants met recently with several San Antonio officials to discuss the potential of moving his NFL team from the Bay Area to the Alamo City, local leaders involved in the talks confirmed Tuesday.

On the weekend of July 18, Davis met with the officials, including Henry Cisneros, then-Mayor Julián Castro, City Manager Sheryl Sculley, Mario Hernandez of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation, and both Richard Perez and David McGee, the president and chairman of the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, respectively.

Late Tuesday, after the Express-News published a version of this story on its websites, Sculley issued a memo to the City Council.

"I was asked to meet two weeks ago with the owner of the Oakland Raiders, Mark Davis, and members of his staff. Mr. Davis has expressed interest in a possible relocation of his NFL team to San Antonio and we are engaged in preliminary due diligence," she wrote. "The agenda for this visit included a tour of the Alamodome and meetings with local business leaders."

nah we need 3...
Good, this will free up a better game to watch when we aren't playing.
But seriously though even though I find most Raiders fans annoying, I wouldn't wish for their team to be ripped from them.

It is Taco Tuesday after all.
It makes sense as Texas is football crazy and would fork up the dough the Raiders want.
Raiders suck, but they belong in California. Hope they stay in Oakland or move to LA.
Just a matter of time before Las Vegas gets a team as well.
Yes Yes leave the bay!!!!! I Love the idea
