It was January 12, 2016 when the Raiders found out they could relocate to Los Angeles. Many other sport websites have confirmed that the Raiders actually bowed out to being relocated, meaning that the Raiders withdrew from their application to move to Los Angeles. Why did the St. Louis Rams, the Chargers, and the Raiders go crazy for Los Angeles? Two words: Stan Kroenke. The owner of the now Los Angeles Rams, Stan Kroenke attracted so many teams to L.A. because he announced plans to build a new $1.86 billion football stadium in Inglewood, California. If not for him or his announcement, the NFL might not be returning to L.A. for the first time in 21 years.
“The Raiders congratulate Stan Kroenke and the Rams on their successful bid for the relocation to Los Angeles. The Raiders will now turn our attention to exploring all options to find a permanent stadium solution. /we thank fans throughout the Raiders nation for their unrivaled passion and support.” This official team statement has sent the fans over the edge. There is no mention of Oakland. No one knows if it was an intentional omission or not but what we do know is that the Raiders will be in search of a new stadium in Oakland or otherwise. NF insides are saying that the best shot for the Raiders is San Antonio, which has been explored have explored as a potential destination.
