Lombardi, this is some bullshit. There was a purpose for naming rights: less burden on the taxpayers of Alameda County who were later forced to pay for the Mt. Davis monstrosity. Most of them never went to a Raiders game. How would you like it as an employee of The Raiders if an Alemeda County homeowner demanded The Raiders subsidize a new pool in their backyard that nobody swam in? Same absurdity. Oh, and A’s fans were really pleased with how it completely screwed up the stadium for baseball.
But, hey, it’s all about The Raiders. What garbage.
