The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority will meet at 8:30 a.m. Friday to vote on a lease agreement that would allow the Raiders to play the 2019 NFL season at the facility.
The measure is expected to pass, and although the Oakland City Council, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and NFL owners also must approve it, that isn't considered an issue.
The deal includes an option for 2020, presumably allowing the Raiders to play yet another season in Oakland if their new home in Las Vegas isn't ready by then.

So, naturally, Brown made sure to put a reaction on Instagram to double-down on this:
This is in addition to him saying it was "Fake news" at the beginning of the month:
And anything sports-related and bring Drake into the mix is very much appreciated.
It appears Brown is more than happy with his decision to sport silver and black.
