HAVES AND HAVE-NOTS: In S.F., Ann Killion writes the "tension and dislike" between 49ers and Raiders fans is likely to "ramp up a few degrees this season." The two franchises "just moved further apart in the department of Haves and Have Nots." While the 49ers have "a brand-new, state-of-the-art stadium that they are touting as the best in the NFL," the Raiders "continue to play in what is widely considered the worst stadium in the league." While the Raiders "remain in stadium limbo," the 49ers are, "apparently, set for life." The fan bases "have a new issue to divide and antagonize them" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 9/3).
