    All over the news this morning. LA Raiders possible move to Vegas. A new stadium approval, probalby either at the current Bali Hai golf course (immediately south of MB) or across the freeway near Russel Road.

    All this golden rainbow/extortion crap from a bunch of bazillionaires and billionaires is a farce. Yet jurisdictions will line up, bend over, and take it. But study after study after study shows the upside is negligible, at best, to locals.

    O.co is a toilet, no doubt. But personally I'd like to see the Raiders remain in the East Bay where I think they belong; like the Chargers in, umm, San Diego. Duh. The problem is as much the demise of the Raiders' once proud ownership as it is Oakland-Alameda County.
