It looks as if the Raiders have fought off efforts to swap their home games with the Chargers due to a scheduling conflict with the Oakland A’s and the baseball playoffs. The A’s will play at O.co Coliseum on Oct. 5 or 7 depending on where they finish, and Major League Baseball was hoping the Raiders would swap their Oct. 6 home date with the Chargers’ Dec. 22 home date.
But little birdies outside O.co are saying kickoff will likely be pushed back on Oct. 6 for a home night game. The game would be broadcast on the NFL Network.
The A’s and their opponent would have to move their off-day workout.
No one is talking about the matter on the record. The Raiders and NFL will make an announcement in the next couple of days.
It will be nice to not have to share a stadium some day. It used to be common place to have baseball/football stadiums but now Oakland is the only one left. I imagine it gets frustrating for the decision makers.
