This photo, released today, depicts a concept rendering of the new $900M stadium St. Louis plans to build to lure the Oakland Raiders to move the Gateway City.
“We believe we’ve made a very appealing overture to the Raiders Ownership group.” Said Jay Nixon, who is spearheading the effort to get a football team in St. Louis. Nixon presented the following reasons why St. Louis would be a perfect fit for the Raiders.
- Expectations? – We have none!
- Gullible fans? – More than we know what to do with!
- A bottomless pit of taxpayer’s money? – At your disposal!
The only issue that Governor Nixon could see with the Raiders moving to St. Louis is the possibility that if enough of Oakland’s Raider Nation fans follow the team, they just might make the Ferguson riots look like a toddler’s tantrum, and steal the Arch while they’re here.
