NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wants to help keep the Raiders in Oakland. On Thursday night, Goodell spoke about the prospects of a new stadium for the Raiders. The NFL commissioner says the league is willing to contribute up to $200 million to help fund the project. Of course this is if Raider and local officials can reach a deal of their own. With the San Francisco 49ers building a new stadium the question was obviously asked if the Raiders could share the premises with them. Goodell said that decision would be made by the Raiders and 49ers. For what its worth Raiders owner Mark Davis said in October that there were no plans to share a stadium with the 49ers. Baseball’s Oakland Athletics, who also share the stadium with the Raiders, are also seeking a new stadium and have considered a move to San Jose.
