NFL Commissioner Encourages Joint Stadium For Bay Area Teams

OAKLAND(AP) – NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers should look into sharing a new stadium.

Both teams currently play in out-of-date stadiums. In June, voters in Santa Clara signed off on a plan to build a 68,500-seat stadium in the city for the 49ers. The Raiders have no current plans to leave the Coliseum.

Speaking at halftime of the Raiders game against San Diego on Sunday, Goodell said he would encourage the two teams to look into sharing a stadium like the New York Jets and Giants.

Goodell also said it’s important to resolve the stadium situation in San Diego, where the Chargers play in rundown Qualcomm Stadium.

    AL DAVIS SHARING IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. SANTA CLARA WOULD NOT ALLOW THE RAIDER TYPE FANS IN THEIR CITY

  2. Uknow Who says:

    Yeah, you’re right the worst damage those fudge packing niner fans could do would be to beat each other with their purses.

  3. Juan Pardell says:

    Translation: The Yorks went to Roger Goodell and told him they don’t have the money to build their stadium and want the NFL’s help. Goodell responded by telling the Yorks the 3-G fund has been depleted and not to expect financial help from the league. Thus, encouraging the Raiders to share the facility is the league’s solution for building a new stadium for the 49ers.

  4. Bay Area fan says:

    The problem is no one wants Raider fans in their neighborhood.

  5. Uknow Who says:

    The Raiders players will never go for a joint stadium with the Forty Whiners because if they did none of them would ever be willing to bend over and pick up the soap in the locker room showers because they would always be afraid of the 49er players sneaking up behind them.
