    The city of Oakland have approved plans to construct a new stadium in the waterfront section of downtown.  This mega facility will accommodate all three Bay Area pro sports teams, including the Raiders, Warriors, and A's.
    The good news about the new stadium is, the city owns the rights to the land where the stadium would be built.  Why is this a significant hurdle in the process? There's no one to negotiate financial matters with such as property taxes other than the city itself.
    The city council of Oakland, have dubbed the proposed stadium name: "The City Sports Complex," and said that a model will be on display soon for all to see.

      Woohoo!  The Colleseum was getting old and worn.  Although I don't live in Oakland anymore I still love it!  Glad to hear they're going to utilize some unused area and upgrade it all.

    With Al Davis out of the picture, the Raiders might even be able to draw a consistent crowd again.

    I hope this new stadium will be a great windfall for the FANS of Oakland Raiders.  I hope the players will think it's a great place to play in.  I wonder how will the city will pay for it?  I guess I'll do some research on it.

    Please, please, let the new stadium come to fruition so the team won't come back to Los Angeles.  Please stay in Oakland, Raiders.  That's where they belong.
