Show Notes:
Raider News:
On March 7, 2013, the Atlanta Falcons and the city of Atlanta agreed to build the new downtown stadium.
On June 18, 2013, it was announced that the Falcons have completed a full conceptual design of the proposed new stadium, and that they have secured the initial approval to proceed with the schematic design phase
Levi’s® Stadium figures to be at the forefront of cutting edge stadium technology. Lurie highlighted some of the key components of the stadium design that helped win the Super Bowl bid.“It’s going to be state of the art,” Lurie said of the 49ers new home stadium set to open in 2014. ”
The O.co Coliseum, the last of the shared MLB-NFL venues, has a plumbing problem. As explained by Carl Steward of the Bay Area News Group, the baseball clubhouses were flooded on Sunday. With sewage. The good news? it gives news meaning to “let’s play two.” The bad news? The outdated structure (which opened in 1966) now officially stinks, in more ways that one.
The Raiders have signed rookie linebacker Sio Moore, the club said Thursday. Moore was the club’s third-round pick. Moore notched 274 tackles, including 44 for loss, in four seasons at Connecticut.
The Raiders waived second-year linebacker Mario Kurn on Monday. The 22-year-old Kurn spent the 2012 regular season on injured reserve after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in August.
Cornerback D.J. Hayden, recovering from abdominal surgery, was at the Raiders’ practice Monday, and coach Dennis Allen believes he is on schedule to be ready for training camp beginning July 25 in Napa. Hayden, the Raiders’
Song is “The Black Hole” by Raiderhed
Nation would you prefer the Raiders get a new stadium and raise your ticket prices by 3 times or keep the old stadium and keep ticket prices the same.
If Allen is heaping praise upon a rookie, take note. Allen isn’t one to go overboard when talking about a young player. On Wednesday, Allen raved about rookie linebacker Sio Moore way beyond what he typically does for a player that hasn’t established himself yet.
Safety Charles Woodson joined the Raiders late during offseason workouts. Even so, he wasted little time getting up to speed and acclimating himself to the Raiders defense. “Wood’s been great,” Allen said. “He’s done everything that we’ve asked him to do.
Wilson fared somewhat better today, including one throw that he zipped 30 yards to a spot where Travionte Session could make a play in tight coverage. Sure, he’s still prone to the occasional rookie mistake and consistency still is a work in progress, but Wilson carries himself in a way befitting a player with NFL experience. “That’s one of the things about him,” Allen said. “He’s got some moxie to him. He’s got some savvyness to him. He still has a long way to go as far as learning the offense, learning the NFL game. But he’s a guy that hopefully we can develop and he can be better for us.”
Very quietly, the Raiders are working more and more on different looks defensively. We’re not allowed to divulge much, but suffice that you’re going to see more three-man fronts and defensive linemen dropping into coverage. A lack of dependable cornerbacks last season made it difficult for the Raiders to be as dynamic as defensive coordinator Jason Tarver and Allen envisioned.
Hernandez, an All-Pro who was released by the New England Patriots after his arrest earlier this week, is charged with first-degree murder in the execution of the friend, Odin Lloyd. He was denied a second request for bail Thursday.
New Jersey-born James Gandolfini began acting in the New York theater. His Broadway debut was in the 1992 revival of “A Streetcar Named Desire” with Jessica Lange and Alec Baldwin. James’ breakthrough role was his portrayal of Virgil the hitman in Tony Scott’s True Romance (1993), but the role that brought him worldwide fame and accolades was as complex Mafia boss Tony Soprano in HBO’s smash hit series “The Sopranos” (1999). He died unexpectedly of a heart attack while vacationing in Italy.
