    agree not the same for someone peripheral to the town that got abandoned. So you have no direct tie to OAK and therefore the reaction to Davis isn't gonna be the same as someone living right there. That said, Raiders are just different anyway......OAK welcomed them back and with the same owner who left. Doubt SD would welcome back Spanos ever (and that wouldn't happen anyway). Raider Nation is much larger than one city. They are sort of like the Packers or Cowboys in terms of nationwide following. It's an image thing for many. Many San Diegans are reacting just like you.....pull for the biggest rivals to Spanos. CLE did it to Modell and BAL did it to Irsay too. Not too tough to comprehend why.

    Raiders...for all their screwy decisions, bad choices......from Al to present day Gruden.....they have wanted to win. And they have succeeded. They have also had some bad years. But they are trying to win it all every year.
    From Carr contract, to draft day trades, to game day always coming ready to play. The fans can sense that and some, not all, will follow the team to a new City. The Bolts have none of that. They are as plastic and unachieving as you can get. The ownership makes no bold moves in coaching, draft, attitude. They are comfortable with their bottom line profit. They're not even bothered by their colossal record of failure. Both teams have moved. But one can hold on to it's core fan base. The other is holding on to its ticket to a free rental and will put a team on the field, if the League requires it.
