OAKLAND, Calif. -- City and county officials approved opening negotiations with an investment group on a possible $1.3 billion stadium project that supporters hope will sway the Oakland Raiders to stay in Oakland.The approvals Tuesday give an investment team anchored by Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott and former quarterback Rodney Peete the right to negotiate a formal agreement for a $1.3 billion stadium that includes $350 million in public money.The Alameda County Board of Supervisors voted earlier Tuesday, with the Oakland City Council voting later in the night.Seven city council members voted to enter negotiations with Lott. One council member abstained. Earlier in the day, three of five county supervisors voted yes after more than three hours of discussion and testimony in a room sparkling with sports celebrities.Lott said after the county vote that the work is just beginning.We still have a long ways to go, he said. We still have to convince the NFL. We still have to convince [Raiders owner] Mark Davis. Weve got a long ways to go, but today is a great day and a great moment for Raider Nation.Earlier this year, Davis said he was committed to moving the Raiders to Las Vegas, where a $1.9 billion stadium project has been approved. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf vowed to continue working on a counter-proposal for the Raiders to stay at the Oakland Coliseum.A move to Nevada is not certain, though a vote by the NFL on whether to allow the move is possible as soon as January. Nevada will raise $750 million from a hotel tax to fund the stadium, with billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson contributing $650 million and the Raiders and NFL kicking in $500 million.The Raiders must get approval from 24 of the 32 NFL owners to move. NFL owners will receive an update on the stadium situation when they meet Wednesday in the Dallas area.The Raiders also have the option of moving to the Los Angeles area, where they can share a facility with the recently relocated Rams.A spokesman for the Raiders did not return requests for comment.Former Los Angeles Raiders great Marcus Allen made an emotional pitch to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and later to the Oakland City Council, saying that losing the team would be devastating for Oakland.What the Raiders mean to Oakland is what the Packers mean to Green Bay, he said Tuesday. Oakland is the epicenter of Raider Nation.They have what you call The Black Hole. This city will have a black hole if [the Raiders] dont stay in the city of Oakland.Other speakers urged caution even as they pledged support. They said officials should negotiate jobs and affordable housing for residents in east Oakland, where the Coliseum is located, given the soaring cost of housing throughout the city.A sticking point was that Alameda County and Oakland still need to retire nearly $100 million in debt incurred from remodeling the current stadium to woo the team back from Los Angeles in 1995.The parties have identified $1.25 billion in potential financing for a project that might cost upward of $1.3 billion for a 55,000-seat stadium that could include mixed-use retail in the future.Lotts team, which includes the Fortress Investment Group, would contribute $400 million, with the NFL and the Raiders contributing $500 million. The city of Oakland would contribute $200 million for infrastructure such as storm drains and roadway parking. The money would be generated from bonds paid back from revenue created from the stadium and its surrounding commercial development.The city and county would also contribute at least 100 acres of land, valued at $150 million. One of the issues to be determined is whether the land would be sold or leased.Supervisor Keith Carson grilled a representative of Fortress for details on payment and revenue. He voted no.Supervisor Wilma Chan abstained. She said at the hearing that though fans have remained loyal, she isnt sure the Raiders want to stay.Board President Scott Haggerty joined supervisors Richard Valle and Nate Miley in moving forward, despite the many unknowns.What it comes down for me is trust, and my mother would trust Ronnie Lott, he said. I trust this man, and hes somebody I want to do business with, and I hope hes somebody Mark Davis wants to do business with.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. If youre still playing in Week 15 of the fantasy football season, be proud. Advancing to a prime playoff spot means you worked hard to get to this crucial point.In many leagues, a victory this week will earn you a berth in the championship game. So stay the course that took you this far in most cases, and remember that all you can do is be informed and set the most ideal lineup possible. Once the games start, its on your players to execute.The best you can do is put yourself in position to win without obsessing about what you cant control -- winning when it counts takes luck in addition to the efforts youve already put in.QUARTERBACK DECISIONSQuarterback decisions this week are not easy. Drew Brees has thrown no touchdown passes and six interceptions in his past two games. Ben Roethlisberger is on the road again, where he has eight TD passes and eight interceptions. Andrew Luck has a tough matchup at Minnesota. Its not crazy to use Joe Flacco over any of those three. Flacco has two 300-yard games and six TD passes in his past two games. He faces an Eagles defense that has yielded 31.08 fantasy points per game to QBs over the past four weeks, fourth-highest in the NFL during that span. In most cases, you do not bench your star players at this time of year. But you can make an exception here with Flacco.Tom Brady also appears to have a very tough matchup against the Broncos, but he should not be reserved like Brees or Roethlisberger, who have some negative trends working against them. Brady came up big in what looked to be a difficult matchup against Baltimore last week, throwing for more than 400 yards and three touchdowns. Hell move the offense well enough to deliver at least respectable fantasy totals this week. This is a marquee matchup for Brady, and he will be prepared to deliver. Denver also has some key injuries at linebacker that could make the Broncos more vulnerable to passes to Patriots running backs and tight ends.JEFFERYS RETURNThe Bears get Alshon Jeffery back from a suspension this week, and you should re-insert him in your lineup at least as a third wide receiver or flex option. Matt Barkley has thrown frequently in two of his three starts and has not made the Bears receivers as irrelevant as feared when he first took over as the starter. Of course, do keep an eye on the weather, as windy conditions could hurt Chicagos passing game.SPEAKING OF WEATHERDont get panicky at the first sign of snow or other weather reports. If tthere is only light snow or the winds are not heavy, you should not make a hasty move to adjust your lineup.dddddddddddd Snowy conditions can play to the advantage of the offense, as defenders might have trouble getting into position when reacting to a playmaker who may be running a predetermined route or forcing a defender to react to him with a juke or cut. If you see winds below 15 mph or so, dont expect too much of an adverse effect on the passing game.GORDON OUT, FARROW INMelvin Gordon is out with a hip injury, and undrafted rookie Kenneth Farrow should be the lead runner for the Chargers in what could be a high-scoring affair with the Raiders. Farrow is a physical type who should get some goal-line chances, so roll him out as the second running back in your lineup or at a flex spot. Ronnie Hillman may get some reps, too, but Farrow is the guy you want to use, especially if you lost Gordon.JULIO JONESJulio Jones is out again this week, but Matt Ryan and the Falcons may not even need him against the likes of the 49ers. Ryan has other fantasy-friendly weapons at his disposal. The Niners allow 26.58 FFPG to wide receivers, so lock in big-play man Taylor Gabriel, and you can even consider Justin Hardy, who scored last week, in deeper leagues. Tevin Coleman can play a significant role as both a runner and receiver, and he is a terrific option as your second running back or flex option.TANNEHILL OUT, MOORE INAll may not be lost for the Dolphins offense without Ryan Tannehill. Matt Moore does not throw high-percentage passes as well as Tannehill, but he does throw downfield. Moore can make a big play, but then throw a head-scratcher of a pass. In 2011, Moore started a dozen games for Miami. In five games, he threw passes of 40-plus yards, and he threw a 30-plus yarder in eight. He had three games with three TD passes. But he was erratic and failed to throw more than one TD pass in eight starts. Moore is unreliable, but wont totally bog down the offense, and DeVante Parker should still have playmaking promise. Moore could also be a bit less shaky with Jarvis Landry as a target for him now. Dont expect the Miami offense to fall apart. Jay Ajayi should still get some chances to finish off scoring drives with TD runs.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
