Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

No progress for new stadium in Oakland

National Football Post

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis said no progress is being made for a new stadium for the Oakland Coliseum.

Should the Raiders not work out a new stadium deal, their long-term future in Oakland is in doubt.

Davis said there's nothing new on the stadium front.

"Nope, they brought in Colony Capital and based on that, I decided to go ahead and do a one-year extension with them," Davis told the San Francisco Chronicle. "We will play in the Coliseum next year. But there’s been no progress. I had high hopes when Colony Capital came in. I still do have hopes, but they’re not as high because I haven’t really heard anything positive from either group. It’s gone silent again. We have to get something done.

"This one-year extension is really based on the hope that Colony Capital can set something done. I don’t want to call it a last-ditch effort, but it does seem to be the last chance that Oakland is going to get. We can’t continue to play in that stadium, with the baseball field and all of that stuff. The A’s have two years left, and are talking about a 10-year extension. We can’t keep getting pushed off, off, off, off."

Davis never brought up leaving, though.

"I wouldn’t talk about Plan B’s or anything like that," Davis said ."I don’t want to talk about using someplace else for leverage. If I get something done in Oakland, I am staying."
