Could Eddie DeBartolo be primed to be the Eastbay's Super Hero involved with keeping the Raiders in Oakland?
KPIX reported late Thursday night the former 49ers owner has sent his personal rep to Oakland to meet with city officials about possibly exploring a stadium deal along with possible development ideas around the existing Coliseum Stadium.
This latest report coincides with Las Vegas plans to build an NFL stadium near the strip that has heightened interest with Raiders' owner , Mark Davis.
Oakland city officials have maintained that they cannot compete with Vegas's mega-billion offer (that needs approval from two-thirds of the Nevada legislature) of approximately $750M. Even if this were to clear, Vegas would still need NFL owner approval to complete a possible Raiders' move.
