I can't believe they are talking about playing in Oakland for the 2 years before the stadium is built!? Talk about attendance issues!

Sam Boyd Stadium must be really bad if they can't play there...

New logo? Possibly.

Rebranding? Not a chance IMO. The Raiduhs brand defines the franchise ... for good and for bad, and for me it's the bad!!

Exactly! Lol... I was stationed there at Nellis back in 2003 and Sam Boyd was a dump. It must be Q status now...

I agree it would be a big mistake, but I see it as at least being a possibility, albeit a remote one.

No chance that they change their name. It actually fits in well in Las Vegas.

Being a lame duck team playing in a city is a very bad idea, just ask the Houston Oilers. Their last season in Houston was not a good thing.

Don't know why the Raiders can't use Sam Boyd for the 2 years. It isn't great, but the majority of the fans who have attended an event there seem to feel it is passable. It has cheap bench seating, but it looks to be in decent shape.

It could get ugly in Oakland.

I believe the Raiders will get the 24 votes. The NFL no longer seems skittish about having a team in LV.

Oakland has zero serious prospects for a new stadium for the Raiders, and as the Athletics also want a new baseball-only park, things look bleak.

I don't see any way both teams get what they want in Oakland. It's just too much money for two parks to get done.

screw that! the raiders are finally good after many consecutive years of suckage. let the locals enjoy a couple of seasons instead of giving Vegas the prime years after all that fail.
