AN OPEN LETTER TO BANK OF AMERICA CEO BRIAN T. MOYNIHAN.

IF YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY PLEASE COPY THIS LETTER, PRINT IT OUT, AND MAIL IT TO THE ADDRESS LISTED BELOW IMMEDIATELY.

Monday, March 06, 2017

Brian T. Moynihan
Chief Executive Officer
Bank of America
Bank of America Corporate Center

Charlotte, NC 28255

Dear Mr. Moyinhan,

On Monday, March 06, 2017 at the National Football League financing committee meeting in Palm Beach, Florida, Oakland Raiders Team President Marc Badain informed the league they have secured a financing agreement with your financial institution in an effort to relocate the organization to Las Vegas, Nevada.

I feel it is the best interest of Bank of America for you to be informed not only of my position but a distinct percentage of fans that are vehemently opposed to having the Oakland Raiders relocate to Las Vegas, Nevada. The Oakland Raiders fan base is well regarded for their unyielding support toward the organization and historically known to travel in support of team. I fully understand every professional sports organization must secure financial profitability and consequently business decisions must be made that may not be well received, which is always the case in regards to relocation. The business of professional sports relies upon the support of customers and therefore equally difficult business decisions will be made.

If your financial institution does choose to enter into an agreement with the Oakland Raiders in support of relocation to Las Vegas please be aware that I will no longer continue this business relationship with the team. I strongly believe other fans that support the team in the current home market of Oakland, California feel the same way. Being the team is reliant on our support for financial profitability I hope that Bank of America has done its due diligence in the market analysis of the Las Vegas, Nevada area.

It is your responsibility to the shareholders of Bank of America to determine if a population of 2.1 million people with an unemployment rate of 7.3%, which is 48.9% higher than the national average, can financially support this organization. The approved piece of legislation, known as SB1, passed by the Nevada government relies upon 20,000 visitors per game to achieve profitability. I fully believe is an unprecedented figure for any National League Football franchise and highly unlikely to be achieved. I do not believe it is in your best interest as a financial organization to enter into this agreement.

Sincerely,



YOUR NAME
Oakland Raiders Fan

Let Roger Goodell and the National Football League know your stance

The message on the card reads as follows:

Dear Commissioner Goodell,

I wish to convey my position regarding the possible relocation of the Raiders from its current home market of Oakland, CA. I do not believe it is in the best interest of the team or the National Football League to approve relocation. I do not believe there has been due diligence in finding a solution in the current home market. According to NFL guidelines provided in the Policy and Procedure for Proposed Franchise Relocation, article 4.3 states the NFL disfavors relocation if a club is well supported, financially successful, and is expected to remain so. With the team selling out the 2016 season and having a waiting list for future NFL seasons, reasonability suggests the Oakland Raiders 2016 season will be a financial success. With thousands of individuals reportedly waiting for an opportunity to become season ticket holders, I cannot see how the Raiders will not have the expectation to remain successful in its current home market of Oakland, CA. for the foreseeable future. Please share my opinion with all 32 team owners. If you desire to contact me please use the information on this card if provided. Respectfully I request for the NFL team owners to not approve relocation of the Oakland Raiders. Thank you for your consideration on this matter.

Sincerely,

Below is the card image.

STAY IN OAKLAND

Commitment to the East Bay

Stay In Oakland is a fan based community movement supporting the efforts to keep professional sports in the City of Oakland while improving the local economy as a whole. Join us in bringing awareness to the City of Oakland, Alameda County, and the surrounding areas.

On October 17, 2016, the Mayor of Las Vegas signed a bill for $750 million of public financing to bring the Raiders to Sin City. Oakland Raiders Owner Mark Davis has fully committed to Las Vegas and refuses to further negotiate with the City of Oakland and County of Alameda, prohibiting support for a solution in the Raiders current home market. On January 2, 2016 it is expected the Raiders will file for relocation. It will be up to the NFL Owners to analyze and approve or deny the relocation request. Stay In Oakland will continue to spread the message and garner public support in hope the NFL will realize the Oakland market is the best solution for financial viability and stability.

Stay In Oakland has distributed over 28,500 signs at the Coliseum. The 11"x17" cards made their debut on Thursday, November 20, 2014 to a national TV audience. In addition to the national exposure, several local media outlets both in print and television documented the efforts. Four weeks later twelve 3’x6’ banners, donated by local businesses, were displayed at the December 21, 2014 game. Since then the movement has distributed over 4200 promotional stickers at the Coliseum, Arena, and local Oakland businesses. Stay In Oakland T-shirts have been sold at public meetings to raise funding for additional efforts. Window decals, coffee cups, and various T-shirts are expected to have both an online and retail presence in the coming weeks.

More information on our efforts will be posted, as it becomes available. Three simple words: STAY IN OAKLAND!

If you like our efforts and want to see this movement grow please donate what you feel comfortable with. Every dontation will be greatly appreciated.

Every $5.00 donation will bring 50 Stay In Oakland paper placards to the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on gameday. Click on the button below.
