    9ers, Raiders to share a stadium?

    POSTED 9:47 a.m. EST, January 29, 2007


    Philip Matier and Andrew Ross of the San Francisco Chronicle report that the San Francisco 49ers have "informally approached" the Oakland Raiders regarding the possibility of building and sharing a new stadium.

    Per the report, the 49ers deny that such contact occurred.
    "I think it's a good idea, but we haven't gone down that road yet,' 49ers executive Jed York said. "First we need to work on Santa Clara, and make sure we can actually get a stadium down there.'

    Raiders sources, however, told the Chronicle that the team was approached by the 49ers on a casual basis during the second half of the 2006 season regarding the possibility of joining forces.

    Said Raiders chief executive Amy Trask in the article:
    "We are enthusiastically focused on the 2007 football season, and don't believe this is an appropriate time to discuss stadium opportunities. . . .
    We are playing in a nice stadium, which our teams and fans enjoy.'

    Reading between the lines of that one, our official response is:

    Currently, the only NFL teams that share a stadium are the Giants and the Jets.
    Other NFL teams share a venue with a local college team.
    Some, including the Raiders, also share with a baseball team.
