Default Raiders Moving Somewhere? Who Knows?

The Oakland Raiders have had one foot out of the door of Oakland for years. But Saturday morning the team confirmed it will file relocation papers to move the franchise to Las Vegas.

The news is expected to be officially unveiled by Raiders soon and was first reported by NFL Media's Ian Rapoport Saturday morning at 3 a.m. PT.

The move will be the third in the franchise's history, and first out of the state of California.

The team re-branding itself by way of a new name and logo - is still within the realm of possibility as well.

Raiders owner Mark Davis made it painfully obvious over the last year how unhappy he was with Oakland. Now, Davis will act on his feelings by relocating the Silver and Black to Las Vegas.

It wasn't until the 2016 season that Davis essentially refused to negotiate with those in charge of getting the Raiders a new stadium in the Bay Area.

Despite their efforts, a source close to Rapoport said that Oakland had made zero headway in putting together a viable plan.

"The city of Oakland has made no progress to keep the team, sources say. It has not come up with a stadium proposal that league or independent sources believe is credible. At this point, it is only a matter of time before they officially leave."

Davis met with the NFL on Tuesday to discuss relocation plans with the league.

The meeting left NFL vice president Eric Grubman reportedly "impressed," and Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney Jr. stating Davis would make an announcement soon.

While the team has yet to make said official announcement, Rapoport's report all but seals the deal on the move Raiders move to Sin City.

The last hurdle to clear for the Raiders is a vote by all of the NFL owners, which is something else expected to fall in their favor.

Overall, the Raiders will need 24 of 32 votes from league owners at a spring vote in order to have their relocation plan approved.

I really do hope they move to Vegas. It will be so fun going each year to the Chargers vs Raiders game. I would even go with my buddy to the Broncos vs Raiders game to root against the Raiders.

Eventhough the Raiders always travel well, I think their games would have a ton of away fans. Las Vegas is more of an adult vacation city than even San Diego was.

The after parties would be amazing!


I think suggesting a rebranding is silly.

This has to be a tough call for you ct, because of proximity.

Vegas-->Richfield-->Denver.

We're all free agents now.

Vegas is much closer to me. I'll probably check out a Charger/Raider game if they do move to Vegas.

I will have my entrance streamed live on the big screen at mid field.

Make it easier for Raiders fans to throw stuff at me.

And probably some Charger fans as well

(Perry -- please merge this thread into the rightful thread. Rebrand as necessary. Use that Iron Fist in the Modshack now that you're head mod).

If they rebrand it won't be the Raiders.
No more SD Chargers vs Oakland Raiders.
Which is sort of appropriate if you are into rivalries and tradition
