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.

Since earlier in the week seemed to be “Nit-Pick Day”, here is a list of the things I nit-pick the Broncos about.
#1. We seem to always play down to our opponent’s level.
What is it with the Broncos for the...
The Oakland Raiders (3-9) have lost 5 games in a row, and the only thing keeping them from the AFC West cellar are the lowly Kansas City Chiefs. In fact, if the Raiders were in any other division, excluding the AFC South, they would be at the bottom of the barrel. In fact, they are ranked below the aforementioned Chiefs [...]
RETURN OF CHUCKY
Rumor has it that NFL analyst Jon Gruden and the Raiders have been in talks to bring the team's onetime head coach back into the fold in Oakland.
Hub Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com informed Dan Bernstein that the Oakland Raiders ”are in talks” with Jon Gruden to return as their head coach.

Week 13 has come and gone, and a couple more cadavers were dropped off at the mortuary.The Chiefs were merely a prelude to the slew of departed souls who would be making their way onto my concrete slabs.They've been inevitably tagged and bagged; now it's merely time to examine what caused these wretched souls to fulfill the destiny that their mortal coil demands.Subject:...
The Oakland Raiders signed FB/RB Jamize Olawale from the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad, the team announced Tuesday. Olawale is the second player the Raiders have signed from another team’s practice squad this season, following DB Brandian Ross, who was added from Green Bay Sept. 19. Olawale spent training camp with the Cowboys.
I gotta be honest, Raider Nation. I’m running out of things to talk about, report, and analyze in the AFC West. It’s pretty simple, really. The Denver Broncos are good. The Chargers, Chiefs, and Raiders are not. The Broncos clinched the division title this past weekend and now set their sights on a 2 or 3 seed in the playoffs. The [...]
It is truly the same as it ever was. The idea of being a true offensive and defensive threat has now turned into an impossible dream of a dream.
In the beginning, we had players that had proven their capability, we had Coaches that were promising and Management that was inspiring to the infamous Raider Nation. Now? We are truly one of the worst teams in the National Football...
