Can't believe Art Spander wrote as his sports headline:"Only 37,341 come out for Raiders' first exhibition".This is sports worthy?"

I agree. I couldn't believe Spander wrote that column. Does he really think there's a shortage of Raiders fans in the East Bay and around the whole Bay Area? He's forgetting the Raiders sold out at least half of last year's home games and came very close to selling it most or all of the rest. The real $$ in the NFL is the TV money, which all teams share equally, as they do the $3 billion annually in merchandising sales. Plus the 60-40 box office split among teams further mitigates any attendance problems any team may or may not have. The ticket issue has been well-chronicled, it's due to mismanagement and bad PR conducted on BOTH sides.

The attendance for Raiders games is really a non-issue at this time.

I have had a busy summer of drum corps tour. Good to be back. Maybe I can actually go to an A's game!

Hey Vinnie,
