Goodell Wants to Keep Raiders in Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the league is willing to contribute funding to help build a stadium in Oakland to keep the Raiders in town.
 
     Goodell spoke Thursday night after a ceremony honoring the 50th anniversary of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 
 
     He says having a more modern stadium is crucial because that is the stage on which the league presents its games. He says the league could contribute up to $200 million to help fund a project if the Raiders and local officials agree on a deal. Goodell also said it is up to the Raiders and 49ers whether they want to share the new stadium the 49ers are building in Santa Clara.
