Yesterday the biggest news to rock the football world was the news that the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers are considering sharing a stadium together in Carson if their respective cities are unable to reach deals on new stadiums.
News of the potential arrangement between the Chargers and Raiders was received by fans online with a mix of suspicion, sadness and anger.
Both teams have an historic feud with each other and are fans are concerned that if either team doesn’t get a stadium soon this could mean their teams will ultimately move.
The Last Straw?
If a stadium deal moves forward it could mean the end of the San Diego Chargers and or Oakland Raiders since owners of both franchises have indicated that they are committed to the future of their teams even if that means either of the two teams could leave their cities.
In a recent article on the stadium deal both teams issued this statement: “We have both been working in our home markets to find a stadium solution for many years, so far unsuccessfully”.
As of today the City of Oakland has continued to show its support for keeping the Raiders in the Bay Area, including considering the development of a new stadium, which could include shops, stores and a vibrant economic center, but if the Raiders are unable to come to an agreement with the City, a stadium deal could be a dream which doesn’t materialize.
