Raiders coach Jack Del Rio doesn't want to spend too much time talking to his team about the franchise's pending move to Las Vegas.
At least fans in Oakland still have the Warriors, who just recorded their 60th win of the season and look the favorites to win an National Basketball Association title-not to mention the Oakland Athletics open the 2017 season against the Los Angeles Angels Monday. Draymond Green thinks because the National Football League is leaving, the city's fans should also move on and not attend home games for the next two seasons while the Raiders wait on a new stadium. Kudos to Mr. Ross for standing up in what he believed in. It's easy to say, 'Oh, fuck it, it's 32-0.' Nah, fuck that.
"I don't see it happening by then", Goodell said. "I understand [Oakland fans] will be angry and disappointed". And if you look at some of the points he made, they're extremely valid.
The social media posts by the former University of Washington Huskie shows how the Raiders move to Southern Nevada has far reaching impact beyond just the fans from Northern California.
I saw the KC Star's Terez Paylor mention that his stories got a bunch of eyeballs when the Chiefs played the Raiders past year, which shows how much those fans care.

Mark Gergen, a UC Berkeley law professor, reviewed the lease and said it appears there is little the Coliseum authority can do to force the Raiders out early.
"It's one thing if you're moving them from Oakland to Fremont or something".
The Raiders become the third franchise to push through a successful relocation vote in the last 14 months, after the Rams and Chargers both finalized their moves to Los Angeles. Raider Nation is the greatest fan base in the world and we're going to build something to make them proud. "I am proud that we stood firm in refusing to use public money to subsidize stadium construction and that we did not capitulate to their unreasonable and unnecessary demand that we choose between our football and baseball franchises".
Many diehard fans have pulled their support and said they won't attend games in Oakland or Las Vegas.
"It ain't for me". "I feel bad for the city". The type of thing you don't just throw away.
