    I wish they'd bring John Madden with them, along with Howie Long, George Blanda, Bo Jackson and Jim Plunkett, all in their prime.

    While an NFL franchise would be extremely cool I don't think the raiders franchise is a good fit for our city. Now if we could overhaul it like the sonics/thunder then I would be down.

    50,000 seat stadium??? That's it???? I bet a pro team would fill a much larger stadium than that. Hell, OU sells out every home game with 85,000+.

    I lived in Sacramento when the Raiders ran their scam there. Sacto spent a fortune wooing the Raiders and the whole thing was just a ploy to help the Raider organization suck more money out of Oakland. The Raiders have done this to several cities.

    People seem to think OKC doesn't have the numbers but I have always wondered, people geek out over the NCAA football played in this state and I think those fans would jump at the opportunity to rally behind a pro team. Only question I have would have would be if there are enough deep pockets willing to spring for the corporate seats.
