    AZ. giggles. Bidwill should get with the times and sell the team to LA.
    Actually, have you seen one of the Seattle games? That crowd gets hopped up on coffee and anti-depressants and its one goddamn ruckus. It is one of the loudest venues--if not the loudest--in the NFL.

    we built our team a stadium (eventually). LA didn't. the time to steal the Cardinals was a few years ago. now they're set with a gazillion year lease on a pretty nice facility that sells out every game.

    Yeah, AZ can keep the Cardinals...we'll move the Chargers up north if need be lol (or the Vikings since we have a knack at taking teams from Minneapolis)
    That stadium is awesome...though it sucks being called the University of Phoenix thingee...

    How is the dining, Tom?

    Are football games that hard to sell out? Basketball and baseball seem challenged by the frequency of games... but 15 games in a season (something like that right?) seems like a walk in the park to sell out.

    The problem is, football tickets are way more expensive for the average attendee than baseball or basketball is, and the stadiums are a lot bigger, so there's more tix to sell out...a lot of teams have no problems with this, but some do (just ask the Raiders).

    Actually, depends on where you're talking about, Menik. In L.A., the basketball tickets are more expensive in terms of dealing with the Lakers (not so much the Clippers) that an NFL ticket. It was considerably cheaper to see the Raiders/Rams than it was to catch Magic and the Showtime Lakers. It would probably be the same nowadays even with say, the Chargers as L.A.'s team. Though it would be close. I dont know how the Raiders were unable to sell out games, but then I realize they played in the colossal Coliseum. That place is horrible to watch anything besides EDC.

    it's ok. It's acceptable, which I guess is saying a lot for stadium food.

    Yeah, I hear all these things about the new stadiums and their culinary prowess, but it seems to be more hype than substance.

    This just in:

    Jeremy Shockey has been traded to the New Orleans Saints for 2 2009 draft picks...

    Not a surprising trade, but NY has just got a little bit more likeable w/o the annoying Shockey on it and by the same token...the Saints a bit more obnoxious with Shockey onboard.

    In regards to the sellout issue: there were zero NFL television blackouts for the 2006 season. Which means that all NFL games were officially considered sold out for that season. You do have to keep in mind that large companies, indian casinos, etc. often buy the remaining tix so the games are not blacked out.

    I don't think I buy that. Raider home games are hardly ever broadcast up here.

    Do blackouts affect Sunday Ticket holders? Because if not, I don't understand why any establishment would buy NFL tickets (three of which easily cost more than the cable package) just so the games would be televised.

    They buy the NFLST so they can show every nfl game. They can still show the local games on the local networks. Unless there is a blackout which means the game will not be broadcast locally (even on NFLST) My favorite team is in the midwest, so Im good.

    Needless to say, this is going to be a pretty interesting year for my boys. I'm hoping to catch the Dec.14th game in Tempe, their only west coast game this year.

    go raiders!!

    as any fan of a shitty team knows, this is the best time of year. the time when you are still filled with hope that the upcoming season might hold great things. and with that attitude in mind, i think this will be the raiders best year since we went to the super bowl. im not saying we will kick ass, but im saying we will actually be competitive, and not the laughing stock of the nfl that we have been in recent years. and maybe, just maybe, we'll have a chance at making the playoffs.

    looks like your team might lose a draft pick next year. Favre's an idiot.
