6:02 pm
memory. >> who? who's antonio brown? never heard of him. >> chicken head. >> i'm a collusion guy. >> reporter: for this fan who claims to be raider jesus -- >> tonight, no mercy on antonio brown. no forgiveness and no mercy for the denver broncos. >> you guys like it? i just wanted to tell you what i noticed, i think you need to take the tag off your shirt and he said no, what did you say? >> i'm going to return that jersey. >> good luck tonight. hope the raiders win. >> raiders nation. >> s, veronica, it's interesting because a lot of the fans aren't really talking about vegas and they haven't talking about the move. they're talking about antonio brown. >> so not one person mentioned going to the home opener next
6:03 pm
season in vegas. not one, is that what you're saying? >> no. they haven't. all the talk is about what happened over the weekend, especially with antonio brown. i did talk to two women who are seasoned ticket holders and one said i will definitely be in vegas next season and the other said i'll be watching it from my couch in oakland. so we'll see what happens. >> so there's one. we appreciate it. go have some fun. thanks. like you just saw, raiders fans now figuring out ways to salvage those antonio brown jerseys now that he's a new england patriot. they're using tape, black markers to change that jersey number from 84 to 81. and that happens to be the number worn by tim brown, the legendary receiver who played 16 seasons with the raiders. the team takes on the denver broncos of the coliseum with kickoff happening at 7:20 and for all your football season updates, make sure to head to

our website at we're looking at sfo live tonight where flight delays and cancellations have been frustrating flyers since the weekend. runway 28 left, one of sfo's four runways closed saturday for a scheduled 20-day construction project. that project is expected to finish up on september 27th. here are the latest numbers. there have been 276 delays, 124 cancellations. 100 of those were canceled in advance due to notice of this construction. and three aircraft had to be diverted to oakland. wilson walker is at sfo with those updates. >> clearly this runway work did not come out of the clear y. we knew this was coming, so why all the delays and cancellations? >> we got the notice there was
6:05 pm
going to be changes with the runway. we didn't get any notice until we were on the plane. >> reporter: fernando and his family are pretty good examples of those snagged by the sfo runway improvements. they landed from a flight only to find the departure board looking like a winter storm. >> we're in the midst of a project to install the new base layer. we've gotten down to the base layer which is an area that hasn't been touched for 50 or 60 years. >> reporter: why the delays and cancellations when the runway work was planned well ahead of time? we put that question to airport spokesman. he says the flight scheduling is largely up to the airlines. they chose to cut back by about 13%. >> all of these reductions are voluntary. airports don't have the authority to tell airlines how many flights to operate so
6:06 pm
ultimately it comes down to an airline business decision in terms of reducing their flight schedules. >> reporter: if you have plans through sfo in the coming days, keep this all in mind and keep an eye on your flight. >> our goal is to have this run way reopened by friday, september 27th. >> we checked with some of the airlines to ask them how they were scheduling given that they knew there would be runway work going on. they didn't respond so specifically to that other than to say they were trying to help out the people who have been bumped off flights and get them where they're going with no additional cost but the good news is that the work is on schedule to get completed by september 27th and you get the feeling that the airlines and the airport really weren't quite sure what the run way work would mean so they took a stab at cutting flights back down by 13%, still wasn't quite enough as you mentioned. a couple flights sent over to oakland today. so you close a runway and you kind of have to figure out how

6:08 pm
undesirable fifth place. ed o'keefe says elizabeth warren has been gaining ground. >> we don't know specifically why they're levering harris but we do know people are taking a closer look at elizabeth warren. she's spent the summer releasing a series of policy proposals on all sorts of issues and gets a lot of credit for doing so and providing detail. >> reporter: elizabeth warren in the lead but barely. she's just one point ahead of joe biden and two ahead of bernie sanders. the data doesn't say who the harris deserters are but analysts do say they're twice as likely to pick warren over biden or sanders. harris will try to take her numbers back when she and nine other candidate take the stage for the debate. o'keefe says all eyes will be tuned in to the frontrunners. >> the big subdrama to watch thursday night will be the fact that former vice president joe biden and senator warren will be on the stage for the first time.
6:09 pm
they'll be standing next to each other by virtue of the fact that they're number 1 and 2 in most surveys. >> we did reach out to the kamala harris campaign to get a comment. they did not reach back with one. the top polling candidates in the democratic 2020 presidential primary will face each other this thursday. it will be the first time warren and harris will appear on the same stage. a man is under arrest this evening accused in a deadly shooting in san jose. this happened last friday on park moore avenue. officers responded to the scene, found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. the victim was taken to the hospital where he later died. also today, police announced they have arrested robert eugene steyer. he was taken into custody after a traffic stop in stanislaus county. meanwhile, uc berkeley police looking for two suspects in an armed robbery. it happened last night here a popular look-out point. the suspects armed with guns
