Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis knows his team needs a new stadium and he prefers to stay in Oakland rather than head back to Los Angeles, via Monte Poole of InsidetheBayArea.com
“Oakland is my preference, though,” he said. “I see us as an urban team, being in a city. I want it to work here. I’d like to stay here.
“But we have to find a way to (generate more revenue). We need people buying season tickets. We’re in a deficit-spending situation, and we need to start getting our revenue up.”
Davis certainly feels the urgency to build a new stadium.
“We have to do something,” Davis said. “We’re opening the season on a Monday night, national TV, and we’ll be playing on dirt.”
