However, without a new stadium deal for the Raiders they could find themselves with no other choice but to leave home. This is not what Mark Davis wants and it's not what many fans want either, but the city may be leaving them with no choice. The Raiders need a new stadium and what they have now is unacceptable.

Oakland Raiders Should Fire Greg Olson Not Dennis Allen-Not Yet

John Doublin – Sep 22, 2014

In what was a heart-breaking 16-9 loss to the New England Patriots in Foxborough, the Oakland Raiders played extremely hard and had several opportunities to win.
