    9ers, Raiders to share a stadium?

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

    49ERS, RAIDERS TO SHARE A STADIUM?
    pft.com

    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:
    "Hmmmmm."

    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.

    Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please. Mark Twain
