The Oakland Raiders Are Moving To Las Vegas

In order for the team to move, they needed to receive at least 24 of 32 owners to approve the move to a $1.7 billion stadium in Las Vegas that'll be ready for play in 2020. The first was as the Oakland Raiders, the second was in Los Angeles, although the team still practiced in Northern California.

"I feel bad for the city of Oakland, man". If the Coliseum rejects the Raiders in 2019, that would leave the franchise with few options. The team on Tuesday sent McKibben a written request to play next season in Oakland, ahead of the March 31 deadline to notify the stadium authority.

"It is possible and has been discussed as a potential solution", UNLV spokesman Mark Wallington told USA Today.

"We have two more years of lease options for Oakland right now", Davis said. "Moving the Raiders? You can move a lot of teams, but there aren't many fan bases like the Raiders' fan base".

The Oakland Raiders will be headed to Las Vegas.

For Mike Florke who is a Rams fan, he says, "I think it's a good idea, it will get a team closer so I can see my team".

In contrast just 5.5 per cent of Danish babies cry for more than three hours a day, and only 6.7 per cent of German babies. Colic has always been defined as infant crying that lasts longer than three hours a day for at least three days a week.

"If I was the fans I wouldn't attend a game the next two years".

Las Vegas business owners are already poised to capitalize on the influx of new fans coming to their town, as well as the Raiders themselves.

"That's like moving the Dallas Cowboys or like moving the [Green Bay] Packers", he continued. Draymond Green thinks because the National Football League is leaving, the city's fans should also move on and not attend home games for the next two seasons while the Raiders wait on a new stadium. "We won a Super Bowl in LA, we won a Super Bowl in Oakland, now it's time to go to Vegas and win a Super Bowl in Vegas, you know?"

The Davis Family, owners of the Raiders Franchise have overcome concerns relating to gambling being associated with the NFL.

MCEVERS: Back in the early '80s, team owner Al Davis hated the decrepit Oakland Coliseum where the Raiders played.

Ian Rapoport said Monday on NFL Network that the 49ers would definitely be open to sharing the stadium with the Raiders for the 2019 season, and possibly even 2018.
