National Football League owners approve Raiders move to Las Vegas

Davis and the Raiders were wooed by a $1.9 billion stadium project - with $750 million in public funding - to be constructed near the Strip in Las Vegas.

The Los Angeles Daily News reports, "Closed out of Los Angeles and with nothing viable to turn back to in Oakland - a reality that remains to this day - there was uncertainty in the air for the Raiders". I feel like all fans should feel that way.

The NFL approved relocation of a third NFL franchise since January 2016, when the Rams were approved for the franchise's fourth move - from St. Louis to Los Angeles.

"For UNLV football, it's going to help us recruit at a high level", UNLV coach Tony Sanchez said in a statement. According to Davis, the deadline for exercising the team's option for 2018 is next March and he hopes to work out an agreement in which the team plays in the Coliseum in 2019.

Last week, the House Intelligence Committee received information from the Justice Department related to the wiretapping claims . He said he had not seen any evidence to back up the allegations, but would "investigate each and every one of these things".

On Monday, hours after National Football League team owners voted 31-1 to allow the Raiders to relocate to Las Vegas, Davis said it had become clear to him that when he signed a new Coliseum lease extension, which tripled his annual rent, he would have to look outside of Oakland for a new home. "Moving the Raiders? You can move a lot of teams, but there aren't many fan bases like the Raiders' fan base". He's right. I will also point out that that happened when they become good just previous year. "Like, moving the Raiders?"

For years Davis had threatened to move the franchise if a new stadium was not built. The disgust reached new heights Tuesday when the Raiders sent an email to season ticket holders promoting the move to Sin City. It's one thing if you're moving from Oakland to Fremont or something, but to Las Vegas?

PHOENIX - The Oakland Raiders do not plan on moving to Las Vegas until 2020, and the first open date for a Super Bowl is not until 2022. I wouldn't attend a game. "No way I would pay my way to attend a game". I feel like all fans should feel that way. The type of thing you don't just throw away. "They didn't engage with the city of Oakland in trying to come up with the comprehensive deal that would allow them to stay".

"Regardless, I'll always be a Raider and cherish my time with them and I'll go to Vegas if they will have me", he said.
