Las Vegas Raiders

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/27/s...egas.html?_r=0 I really can't understand why everyone has been so adverse to sports teams in Vegas before. Gambling is everywhere. Is there a genuine fear that a "gangster" is going to try and fix a game?...

Works for me. Vegas is only a 6 hour drive. Oakland is 11 1/2 hours.

Re: Las Vegas Raiders

I read that they will play two more seasons in Oakland. Would you pay all that money to watch a team that's abandoning your city? I damn sure wouldn't.

Got a bad feeling that once Brees and Benson are gone then the Saints will be the next team to move

I think when/if Benson's grandkids get a hold of the team, that's exactly what happens. Although, there now being 2 teams in L.A. kind of takes a little wind out of that sail.
