Mark Davis had his turn in front of a microphone. Now, it's Oakland's turn to speak.
The NFL will hear from city officials about their plans for a new local Raiders stadium, according to Mike Blasky of Bay Area News Group. Officials from St. Louis and San Diego will also pitch their ideas.
It'll be the first chance Oakland's leaders have to sell the NFL on their town. Mayor Libby Schaaf, a longtime opponent of public fund usage, will attend and speak.
"We'll show how everything from Oakland's growing economic momentum and urban vitality to the team's die-hard regional fan base make it clear that there is no better time for a major league team to be located in, or associated with Oakland," Schaaf said in a statement.
Schaaf might be pitching a room that's made up its mind already. It certainly appears like the Raiders will do everything they can to relocate to Los Angeles.
