Raiders pose 40 questions to fans regarding possible new stadium

The San Francisco 49ers have taken significant steps toward building a new stadium. The Oakland Raiders would like a new home of their own. And with the league office reportedly preferring that the two teams share a venue, the Raiders could be destined for Santa Clara.

So the Raiders (technically, the Oakland Alameda County Commission) have concocted a 40-question survey aimed at gauging how much cash fans would be willing to fork over in order to help the team get new digs in Oakland, which could end up hosting the 49ers, too, if Santa Clara falls through.

Per Cam Inman of the Contra Costa Times, the survey speaks of a “one-time equity membership fee,” country-club talk for Personal Seat License.

The online survey will require roughly 10 minutes to complete, and it will include a “hypothetical” seating map.

What’s more than hypothetical is a possible return to L.A. Inman points out that a recent ESPN documentary by Ice Cube about the team’s time in Southern California included this quote from the man who turns 81 today: “I could not have stayed in L.A. under the conditions that were there. I had to come back to Oakland,” owner Al Davis said. “And as L.A. knows, if they can get a stadium, they can knock on the door.”

And so, as Inman points out, the pricing options on the survey should include one more possible choice: two tickets on Southwest Airlines.
