And before anyone quotes the tired old refrain of Dallas and Houston will not allow another team in Texas, take a look at the demographics of the San Antonio-Austin Region. This area has mushroomed over the last 20 years into a burgeoning, bustling metro area with over 4.2 million residents and would be the 12th largest TV market in the league behind the Twin Cities. For Davis to play anywhere else during the 2019 season would be stupid and self-defeating. But then Davis balked on bringing the Raiders to SA in 2014 too but instead chose LV. Again, stupid.
it would be quite a blow to the San Antonio NFL boosters that when a team finally becoming available and no other viable options in North America, they opted to play in Europe instead, appears that Jerry Jones is pulling these strings

I have been saying this since 1992 when Jerry Jones helped derail the awarding of the Jaguars to San Antonio. Jerry Jones is nothing but a greedy, evil, petty sob who wants nothing less than to dominate all of Texas with his hated cowpigs. I for one San Antonian am sick to death of the Dallas Cowboys and would relish the chance to support my own local team one day. Bring the Raiders !!
