Welcome back Raiders!

Please? Get their fans out of the bay area. Make it better for me.

AEG is building the stadium so they can bring in team. Not Al Davis, and Davis isn't gonna sell, so no Raiders (thankfully).

The candidates seem to be Chargers/Vikings/Jags

As a Charger fan, I want the Chargers, but would be cool with any team. If it is built, it'll still be five years away, but by that team, LA could probably house two teams.

I would think the Vikings would use this as leverage to get a new stadium after the Metrodome roof collapse, tell Minnesota give us a new stadium or we go to L.A

Keep the Raiders in the Bay. I saw Game 3 Kings-Sharks. Sharks fans = Raiders fans on Sunday. You can keep them. We have enough of our Raiders fans down here. Let them migrate North.

Yeah that's true, It was the Twins and University of Minnesota's new football stadium which actually opened in 2009 (not sure if the opening makes a huge difference)

Rams would be awesome. Sam Bradford and Stephen Jackson are legit. Too bad they'll both probably be gone by the time LA actually does get a team. Huge Chargers fan so that would be cool too, and the Vikings would be pretty cool for LA. Anything but the Raiders though - we don't want them back.

Bradford is a legit Franchise QB. That alone will sell tickets in LA.

Bring back the Rams I say. I hated when Georgia Frontiere took the money and ran to St.Louis.

That was probably game 2, and I was there as well. I have to agree that a handfull of Sharks fans were just so obnoxious that I was floored. I had one guy come up to me and scream in my face from like 1/2" from me. I was dumbfounded. I wanted to punch him but I was surrounded by 2000 "superrrrr" teal jerseys so I figured I better just keep moving.

The Raiders fans up here are the worst though. There are 4 billion of them and they actually think there team is going to win every game.

The Bay area sports fans have some real penis envy for LA sports teams. It's hard to deal with up here being a Dodgers and Kings fan.

I'm not sure you're implying this, but it's not the same stadium. The Golden Gophers play on campus, and Target Field is downtown.

But again, don't think you're implying that.

Ditto.

But being a Bolts fan myself, it wouldn't be a bad consolation prize. Since expansion isn't an option.

EDIT: Pretty much anybody but the Raiders is fine by me. Not sure AEG would want them anyway (unless they were the only option), because they don't want to bring those same people back to downtown that they have gotten rid of by developing the area.

Fine on every count. LA needs a fresh start (i.e. not the Raiders).

At times I can appear to be an AEG apologist, but if they bring the Raiders back I'll hate them as much as I hate the McCourts.

Seems to me like Jacksonville is the most likely to move. They have decent attendance, but they lack corporate support down there.

I'll take whatever we get, including the Raiders. Of course that's because I'm a Raider fan, but honestly, I'll take whatever they're willing to give us.
