I have seen that Oakland in next few years could lose Raiders, Warriors and A's. Suoposedly, A's are comtemplating move to San Jose, Warriors to San Francisco by 2017, and Raiders lease with stadium expires at end of this season and they could move to Los Angeles. Is this true or just rumors?

Two first true, but not 100%; don't know about Raiders. The coliseum is old and worn, so a move somewhere may happen.

If they leave Oakland, fans may actually come to see them. I, for one, am tired of watching sports in a crime filled ghetto.

Just this morning I am hearing chatter the Raiders are thinking of a move to Concord CA; the old Navel Air Station, rumor only, no credible sources.

Major lack of transportation to the old NAS. I would be surprised.

Becasue Raiders do not draw huge crowds, and no stadium deal is near....some say there may be "secret" plans to relocate to Los Angeles at end of this season. But where would they play in LA? Coliseum is in bad shape. Also, many other owners like to use words "Los Angeles" as bargaining chip to get new stadium or renovations in their own city. So, it is unknow if the required 24 of 32 owners would actually approve a move to LA. One thing though, is that with their own stadium lease ending, why were Raiders so opposed to sharing a stadium with 49ers, sort of like the Giants and Jets do?

The Faiders are such a low class ghetto team that has no respect for their fan base, I for one hope they do leave and go down to L.A. (Again). I switched to the 9ers when Al left town last time and have laughed at the Faiders ever since. Good riddance.
