Column: Where, oh where, should the Raiders play?
The Raiders thought they finally found a place to play next season, only to find out they're not wanted in San Francisco.
Not by the mayor, and certainly not by the team that still calls itself the San Francisco 49ers — even while it plays its games in a stadium 40 miles away in the Silicon Valley. They've pretty much shut down any plans to play at Oracle Park, home of the baseball Giants.
"As far as I'm concerned, the Oakland Raiders should play in Oakland," San Francisco Mayor London Breed said.
AP Source: Raiders in talks with Giants over sharing stadium

A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Sunday night the two sides are in discussions, but no deal has been reached. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because nothing has been finalized.
NBC Bay Area reported that an announcement of the Raiders' plans to play in San Francisco will be made this week.
