Another baseball field stadium, of course.

It just had to be in san fran too, that stadium's gonna burn down by season's end.

At first I was like... "I guess that makes sense as a fallback option".

Then I saw the pic of a baseball stadium :/

Raiders should just play in a different city every year.

I would have been cool with them playing out of London.

That stadium looks disgusting for a professional football team.

This should go over very well.

So are they the San Francisco Raiders for a season?

Best 'ballpark' in America, BAR NONE. The great Mike Krukow once called it 'Baseball Nirvana'

Its located on the (north) east side of San Francisco, which is just a little up the bayshore from where Candlestick used to be located. That part of San Francisco has phenomenal weather (zero fog)

 

I imagine the raiders will play their first 4-5 games on the road/London then have their first home game the first weekend in November, just in case the giants make the world series LOL

 

The Niners and Raiders arent going to share a stadium! Hallelujah. makes for a more favorable home schedule without having to puzzle together 7 Raiders home games (8 minus London).

They should just join the MLB & play baseball for a season until their Vegas stadium is ready.

I dont think the City of Palo Alto nor the city of Berkeley wanted raiders fans to invade their towns. CAL Berkeley's stadium is in the middle of a neighborhood. Wouldnt work

Impossible to do on such short notice. Would need to be agreed upon years in advance. How can you expect guys to move from Oakland to London to Vegas in three consecutive years?

No yea you are right, just a multi-billion dollar league should see this coming and make it work, or pay to make it work.

But yeah, it's too much this late in the game.
