Policy optimistic about joint Raiders-Chargers stadium chances
The man put in charge of luring two AFC West teams to Carson, Calif. sounds like he likes his odds.
"It's got a lot of steam," Raiders and Chargers representative Carmen Policy told ESPN. "We feel very good about where (Carson stadium plans are) at. It's very exciting."
Policy's word is as good as gold. The former 49ers executive nearly brokered a Los Angeles deal for the Raiders in 1994, so if his optimism is a good sign for Los Angeles-area football fans.
It's a bad omen for fanbases in Oakland and San Diego, though. Policy said he's hoping for a $1.9 billion resolution in January that would build a state-of-the-art stadium, a Western branch of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and more.
That deal might be too sweet for the league to pass up -- especially with questions swirling about future stadiums both north and south of Los Angeles.
