If they wore less exotic costumes they'd be able to fit another 30,000.

Still, where are you going to find that many Raider fans willing to watch that crap?

Re: Around the NFL Offseason 2013

I just wonder if their seating capacity is suppressed due to fan intimidation. They're not going to get many visiting team fans and a lot of people probably do fear for their life in their own team's stadium.

Oakland is one city I'm staying far away from.

So me and my GF are thinking about going to the Oakland game in Sept. It's pretty easy to get seats, beautiful part of the country and we have friends/family near there. I discussed this issue with her and she seems to think that's it's a non issue. Me on the other hand knows how the Oakland fans are and prefer not to go to the game.

Any of you been to any Oakland games in the past?? It looks like a pretty rough crowd.

That NY Time article is a good read but disturbing to say the least.

From the article: “The 1995 deal didn’t work from a financial perspective for any party to the deal -- city, county or Raiders,” says Amy Trask, chief executive officer of the Raiders. “That shouldn’t stop us from trying to reach a deal that works for everyone.” "

I hate statements like that. The money obviously went somewhere. If the money really was lost instead: On disaster, unexpected expenses like say vandalism or lawsuits or lack of fan revenue, who knows... then how can Trask say that a deal that works is possible?

Well a lot of people watch the Redskins when they were crap, so I am sure they'll find people.

Oakland is no worse and it might be safer than some parts of DC. I like Raiders better than the Forty whiners.

I actually think reducing stadium size as a whole is a good idea. 50K might be too small but the 85K and larger stadiums lend themselves to being flooded by opposing team fans.
