Hope not. Oakland should be moving hell and highwater to keep them there.

I think you have summed up why they will move. Oakland outwardly do not appear to be doing anything when as you said they should be moving hell and highwater. There are now LA powerbrokers like Magic Johnston and Michael Orvitz getting involved. I think the LA Raiders are coming back sooner rather than later.

The Raiders desperately need a stadium that doesn't have to have a baseball diamond regrassed (plus all the seating changes etc) before home games for the first half of the season. Unfortunately, there is no money in either Oakland's or Davis' coffers to get a new stadium in the Bay Area.
Mark Davis will do anything rather than share Levi's with the 49ers.
The NFL do not want the Raiders, especially under Davis ownership, to take the lucrative LA market.
I think we are stuck in the current lousy stadium until something significant happens, eg change of ownership.
Or maybe we move to Vegas, Al's favourite city!
