    Birmingham Raiders?

    This is probably about as likely as Larry Langford’s Olympics, but who knows.

    The stadium is a dump and a hazard, the neighborhood is even more dangerous than the stadium, and the surrounding interstate is closed down. Yep sounds like the perfect time to do it.

    I don't understand why they can't work out something with UNLV?

    I am shocked. I don't know if I will be able to recover.

    They can, but that stadium is being demolished after next year as UNLV will play in the new Domed Raiders stadium. Makes no sense to dump a few million into a stadium to bring it up to NFL code just to tear it down. Plus the Raiders want to Roll into Vegas all shiney and new!
    I would think if the Raiders leave the Bay Area, my money would be on San Diego. They already have an NFL stadium and could draw some of the old LA Raider fans from the SoCal area.

    Just another in a long list of shots in the dark by the “leadership” in Birmingham. This one goes in the list with Langford’s idea to dig a canal from Birmingham to the coast so that Birmingham can be a shipping hub...(facepalm)

    Bring the raiders to LF and I’ll actually go there again. And I hate the nfl.

    Birmingham is pretty much a cesspool these days.
    The murder rate is the lead story on B-ham TV.
    Life is cheap among the Birmingham Gangs.
    The TV stations never mention that most of the shootings are either Gang or Robbery
    related.

    Birmingham Raiders sounds like a club level England futbol team.
