Fans Must Think They've Already Left

As the days dwindle down to a precious few . . . ?

The Raiders drew the smallest crowd of their smallest attendance season here, 38,747, Sunday at the Coliseum.,

They distributed 41,349 tickets. The Raider media guide lists only tickets distributed for games in past seasons. On that basis, Sunday's was the second smallest Raider total in their eight seasons here, exclusive of strike games, larger only than their 43,086 in the season opener against the Chargers.

The Raiders are discussing possible moves to Oakland or Sacramento.

Raider sources say an announcement is near.
