Raiders fans got a curious offer from the team that allows them to spend $100 now to ensure they have a spot in Las Vegas when the team’s new stadium is finally completed. It might seem like a neat offer, except for the fact, you know — current season ticket holders live in California and all.

The knife has already been driven into the hearts of die-hard fans, and this is just twisting it even more. The request to save a seat is accompanied by a hype video showing off the stadium’s new spot in Vegas, which boasts an impressive glass room, minutes from the Vegas strip and games inside that look like they were lifted out of Madden 2001.
So, Raiders season ticket holders: Rush now to get your spot in a stadium that isn’t built yet for an undetermined date so you can watch your favorite team in a new city. You’d think the team might be a little more understanding of how much this is hurting fans, but nope.
Make no mistake — Foster was an outstanding back in 2010 and 2011, and while his physical skills might not have dazzled in every system, he was a tremendous fit for Houston’s one-cut-and-go zone scheme.

What’s more, in 10 years (or maybe much sooner) there will be no single act of fiscal irresponsibility more mocked in retrospect than the big second contract to the game’s shortest-lived and most replaceable position. It may still face stiff competition from “Big Free Agent Contracts To Wide Receivers By Teams With Dubious QBs” and “Big Money to Defenders Over 30,” but Foster-type deals will often look hideous in hindsight even without Foster’s specific back and hamstring woes.
