Raiders and A's

Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders are a professional American Football team in the NFL based in the city of Oakland, California. They currently play in the Western Division of the American Football Conference in the National Football League. The Raiders began play in 1960 as the eighth charter member of the American Football League, where they won one championship and three division titles. The team joined the NFL in 1970 as part of the AFL-NFL merger. Since joining the NFL, the Raiders have won twelve division titles and three Super Bowls (XI, XV, XVIII), and have appeared in two other Super Bowls. Thirteen former players have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Head Coach: Tom Cable

The Oakland Raiders named Tom Cable the team's head coach on Feb. 4, 2009. Cable had served as the interim head coach after Lane Kiffin was fired four games into the 2008 season.

In 2007, Cable coached a Raiders offensive line that contributed to the "Silver and Black" finishing sixth in the NFL in rushing. Cable, 43, spent the 2006 season as offensive line coach for Atlanta, where he tutored a unit that helped the Falcons lead the NFL in rushing. Cable joined the team as the Raiders offensive line coach in 2007. From 2004-05, Cable was both the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at UCLA, where he helped develop one of the most productive offensive units in the nation.

Cable coordinated a UCLA offense that averaged 431 yards in total offense per game while earning 10 wins and a bowl berth in 2005. The Bruins improved their total offense by over 1,000 yards, averaging 410 yards per game, under Cable in 2004.

Cable was head coach of the University of Idaho from 2001-03. During his tenure at Idaho, his teams averaged 424.1 yards of total offense per game. Cable also spent two years at the University of Colorado. In 1998, he served as the offensive line coach and the following year was promoted to offensive coordinator. Under his direction, the offense was ranked 14th in the nation in 1999, averaging 424.9 yards per game. He spent six seasons (1992-97) as offensive line coach at the University of California, where he tutored four first-team All-Pac-10 selections, including Jeremy Newberry, who joined the Raiders in 2007. Cable began his coaching career at his alma mater, serving as a graduate assistant at Idaho in 1987 and 1988. He was a graduate assistant at San Diego State in 1989, defensive line coach at Cal State Fullerton in 1990 and offensive line at UNLV in 1991. The Merced, California native played four years at Idaho, three as a starting guard, and spent one season with the Indianapolis Colts before beginning his coaching career. Cable has three children, Amanda, Alexander and Zachery.

Oakland Athletics

The Oakland Athletics are a Major League Baseball team based inOakland, California. The Athletics are a member of the Western Division of Major League Baseball's American League. From 1968 to the present, the Athletics have played in the Oakland Colesium.

Origin of the team name

The Athletics' name originated in the term "Athletic Club" for local gentlemen's clubs—dates to 1860 when an amateur team, the Atletic Club of Philidelphia, was formed. (A famous image from that era, published in Harper's Weekly in 1866, shows the Athletic players dressed in uniforms displaying the familiar black letter "A" on the front). The team later turned professional through 1875, becoming a charter member of the National League in 1876, but were expelled from the N.L. after one season. A later version of the Athletics played in the American Association from 1882–1891.

The team name is typically pronounced "Ath-LET-ics", but their longtime team owner/manager Connie Mack called them by the old-fashioned colloquial Irish pronunciation "Ath-uh-LET-ics". Newspaper writers also often referred to the team as the Mackmen during their Philadelphia days, in honor of their patriarch.

Cisco Field

After the city of Oakland failed to make any progress toward a stadium, the A's began contemplating a move to the Warm Springs district of suburban Fremont. Fremont is about 25 miles south of Oakland; many nearby residents are already a part of the current Athletics fanbase.

On November 7, 2006, many media sources announced the Athletics would be leaving Oakland as early as 2010 for a new stadium in Fremont, confirmed the next day by the Fremont City Council. The team would have played in what was planned to be called Cisco Field, a 32,000 seat, baseball-only facility. The proposed ballpark would have been part of a larger "ballpark village" which would have included retail and residential development. On February 24, 2009, however, Lew Wolff released an open letter regarding the end of his efforts to relocate the A's to Fremont.
