Oakland Coliseum: "slow-mo game of chicken"

Oakland Coliseum

...The underlying problem here, as it is in most stadium deals, is that Raiders owner Mark Davis wants a new building but doesn’t want to be the one to pay for it, and there’s no way for a city to agree to that without taking a several hundred million dollar loss. So we get a years-long stalemate until somebody blinks and agrees to get out their wallets, and it’s never the team owner, because where’s the upside for him in that?

Anyway, the Raiders aren’t any closer to getting a new stadium today, but then they weren’t very close last week either. Also, they’re no closer to moving to L.A. than they were last week. This is officially becoming the most slow-moving game of chicken ever.
