As the title says, this was a must do trip for me. As a life long Raiders fan I have seen them play in LA, San Diego and Seattle but never in Oakland so this was a long time coming. First off for the people who complain about the security and lines. It says everywhere on the team website and the tickets to arrive early and expect delay's. The new security required not only by the Raiders but by the NFL is something new this year and to be planned for. Much like the airport you have to remove everything from your pockets, open your bags to be searched and go through a metal detector. So stop complaining and plan on getting there at least an hour early if not more. I was there when the gate opened at 11am and there was no one in line except for me. I did find it confusing that each food vendor sold different things and you had to walk around to find the right food you wanted. This is the second oldest active stadium in the NFL. Expected it to be this way. It was nice that the baseball season was over and the infield was covered in grass! Views of the field from the first and second level were amazing! We won in overtime so what could be better. And having the BART station right at the entrance sealed the deal for me. $7 from Livermore where I stayed and parked. What could be better!?
