Ramey on Raiders move to Las Vegas: 'It's all about the money'

Doyle BarkerMar 30, 2017

And while the Las Vegas dome would be open in time to play host to Super Bowl LVI, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told the Las Vegas Review-Journal it would have to wait until after 2022.

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".

The Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas is turning the rock band Green Day into fans of a rival of Green Bay - the Detroit Lions.

On the one hand, I feel really bad for the fans in Oakland. But with the franchise slated to move on to Vegas no later than 2020, coach Jack Del Rio said he thinks the dedicated fan base will travel too.

The Raiders have been in Oakland in 45 of the franchise's 58 seasons, including the last 22.

National Football League owners on Monday approved the team's proposal to move from Oakland to Las Vegas and a new $1.9 billion domed stadium set to open in time for the 2020 season.

Oakland politicians can whine all they want about the Raiders moving away from their city, but the team isn't theirs. He's right. I will also point out that that happened when they become good just previous year.

Answer our poll question below: Would you support the Raiders if the team moved to San Antonio temporarily.

CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora wrote the NFL and the Raiders have identified the Alamodome as a possible temporary home if the city of Oakland forces the team to leave before the franchise makes a permanent move to Las Vegas. But, to Green, there seems to be a difference between relocating across the Bay and relocating to a new state. When you were talking to a free agent, they know we want to move but weren't sure if it was going to pass. It's one thing if you're moving from Oakland to Fremont or something, but to Las Vegas? Now, the same free market that gave Oakland the Raiders in the first place is giving the team to Las Vegas.

"No way I'd pay my money to attend a game". But it doesn't sound like Green-who said he has been to about "eight or nine" Raiders home games since joining the Warriors in 2012-is going to head to Oakland Coliseum to see them play anytime soon.
