City and county officials have asked for an appraisal of the jointly-owned Coliseum site, as negotiations begin with a group headed by NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott to build a new football stadium to keep the Raiders in Oakland.
The Oakland Raiders went 7-9 last season and finished in third place in the AFC West behind Kansas City (11-5) and Super Bowl champion Denver (12-4). But the NFL Network’s Willie McGinest says “it’s time” for the Raiders to win the West. “Not so fast,” says the network’s Heath Evans, however.
Numerologists will note that the Raiders have the 14th, 44th, 75th, 114th, 143rd, 154th, 194th and 234th picks in next week’s NFL draft. The process will take three days, or four fewer than the seven reported in Genesis needed to create the world.
