It looks like the Oakland Raiders determination to get out of Oakland will be solidified after coming to an agreement with Bank Of America that will cover the team’s stadium costs at the tune of $1.9 billion. The previous investors Sheldon Adelson and Goldman Sachs sacked the Raiders after promising to be investors for the team’s new Las Vegas Stadium. Both Sachs and Adelson backed out after they learned that neither would have any ownership stake in the football club.

Disney who runs a tight financial ship will be cutting ESPN’s budget as the network said that they would trim $250 millio which includes cutting air talent. Which on air personalities was not made public by ESPN but at that dollar figure the network will be trimming many positions and those who worked at the network for years will see those changes starting this month. Veteran Sunday Night Football host and Baseball anchor of highlights Chris Berman’s contract will not be renewed and is on the way out at the Worldwide Sports Leader.
