Things are getting hairy up in the Bay Area, where the Oakland Raiders and the city have essentially come to an impasse. So what’s next for the Silver and Black as they try to figure out their living situation for 2019?

Right now, no one knows what the future may hold for the Oakland Raiders and their stadium situation. If there’s one thing we can state with absolutely certainty, though, it’s that the lawsuit handed down by the city of Oakland only made things that much more complicated.

It was believed the two sides were trying to figure out a solution. However, with this latest shot fired, it seems a near certainly that the Raiders will be playing elsewhere in 2019. The only problem is that their new stadium in Las Vegas won’t be ready by September, meaning they’ll have to arrange alternative accommodations in the meantime.

Seeing as no decision has been made yet, it only makes sense to ponder the possibilities. What are the Raiders’ options, and which ones are more appealing than others? Can they share a college stadium like the Los Angeles Rams are, or will they be forced to squeeze into another, smaller venue like the Los Angeles Chargers are?

Well, we’re here today to see where some of these puzzle pieces fit.
