Not surprising, Oakland wouldn't fund them enough to build a new stadium and there is much more opportunities in Vegas. Smart move.

I kind of like the move despite Oakland having a pretty decent fan base I think the whole Las Vegas title might amp up some more hype. Rekennel the desire to play some real damn Super Bowl caliber football. *Cracks open 2 beers and douses oneself like Stone Cold Steve Austin*

Sad but kind of cool to see, feel like Las Vegas will be better for them.

I feel like this is a smart move for the organization. I do feel a little bad for the Golden Knights since that would've been the only professional hockey team there and they could've made a lot of money. But now that the Raiders are going there they will take the majority of the fan base I feel.

Business is business though. Still think it is great for Las Vegas and the Raiders!

The Golden Knights will still be big, as the Raiders still aren't moving for another 2 seasons, considering they still need a stadium which will take 2 1/2 years to build, and IIRC, the Golden Knights already sold out all of their season tickets months ago. They'll be fine.

And this is where someone will more knowledge about the situation could help educate me! Thank you for that!!

I never really thought of how long it would take to build a football arena tbh. Also never heard that they sold out of season tickets!

Sounds like the Golden Knights won't be doing too bad after all!

I mean, considering how advanced the new football stadiums are now-a-days, it's not really surprising. The Minnesota Vikings stadium took 2 years to build and I believe it costed a billion dollars.

Yeah stadiums are massive. Which takes a lot of time and money. I guess my brain shut off when I was originally typing that reply on here hah!!

While we are on the topic of the Vikings stadium lets give a pray to all the birds that have died because of the glass!
