    Raiders should be in LA. Chargers should be in SD. Rams should be in STL.

    This whole thing has been a disaster on the NFL's part.

    ESPN radio says it looks like it might happen. But then again, the same guy was arguing FOR Mark Sanchez (in terms of playoff history) just minutes before..so....

    Btw, the lazy title of the article sucks. I don't think Vegas would want Oakland to come to town and live there. Maybe the Raiders, but I think Las Vegas would take up arms to keep Oakland out.

    Adelson is taking his $650 million and going home; he's out.

    Plan B?

    The Raiders reassured Las Vegas officials Thursday that they can finance a proposed $1.9 billion stadium as they have lined up 2 banks for the financing. Boy, the stadium costs just keep traveling to the moon..............and Vegas taxpayers will be passengers for a mere sum of $750 million.:toropalm:

    Owners vote 31-1 for the move to Vegas. Only Miami objected

    San Diego, Oakland, and STL no team. But Jacksonville still has one

    Mexico City, London, Toronto... I see another expansion coming. Or maybe a real developmental league.

    Can't blame the Raiders here. Oakland had pretty much a decade to do something and did nothing and Raiders ended up getting a great offer from Vegas.

    Yep, I cant wait to go to Vegas to watch a Texans/Raiders game.

    Much better than the gang ridden OC.

    The Raiders will still play in Oakland for two years. Those are going to be awkward home games.

    Well it will be very weird to watch them for two years in Oakland. Indeed Olieresque!
