    Re: Birmingham Raiders?

    Questions remain as to whether Legion Field is an adequate NFL venue
    And the answer to every one of the is "no."

    The fact that B’ham got an AAFL team with Legion Field as the only option is a joke. They couldn’t pay me enough to go to a game in that part of town.

    They need to worry about the crime rate. Can’t even go to the Galleria anymore because of the gangs shooting up the place.

    Well, given the reputation of the team (and the reputation of their fans) can you imagine a more appropriate team to play at Legion Field?

    Well, I read a story today about Trent Richardson playing for the Birmingham Iron.
    I really hope he makes a mark with the Iron and maybe gets a contract in the NFL. I loved watching that dude run the ball.

    For some reason I am, or was, thinking the Raiders signed a deal in the past week or two to play the 2019 season somewhere in Cali again?

    I recommend San Antonio or St. Louis.

    I would like to continue to express my gratitude at the Raiders gifting Khalil Mack to the Bears.
