Raiders, just GTFO already

Meanwhile, after the Raiders’ move was announced, A’s President Dave Kaval more or less said “don’t let the door hit you on the way out” while speaking to NBC Sports California’s Joe Stiglich regarding the idea of shifting the home clubhouse into the Raiders’ locker room space.

“Well, it’s considerably bigger than our current locker room,” he said, “and so we could have a more player-friendly area, more lounge space, be more spread out. Even space for training facilities we don’t have now. And so it just provides a lot more flexibility, and a better draw for players if they want to play here in Oakland.”

Let me get this straight. The Raiders are leaving Oakland, the city whose taxpayers funded their return (and are still paying for!) yet they want Oakland to welcome them with open arms for two seasons in the building that they trashed, and oh yeah, do so to the detriment of the current tenants, who by the way, actually want to stay here? Which current tentants are working hard to IMPROVE the building that the Raiders trash every fall? Why should we A’s fans or anyone in Oakland put up with this? Why should the Raiders’ paltry eight home games continue to ruin RICKEY HENDERSON FIELD and, even worse, cost the A’s a chance at landing and retaining talent?
