Didn't See That Coming

Looks like the Raiders are moving to Las Vegas.
NFL owners are set to vote on the team’s possible relocation Monday or Tuesday at their meeting in Phoenix. Davis needs 24 of 32 owners to vote “yes,” though contingencies attached to a vote could push the final approval back to May, during the next owners’ meeting.

League sources expect the move — which wouldn’t happen until 2020 — to be approved. While the Raiders are confident enough that they were planning a news conference near the University of Nevada Las Vegas campus Wednesday, those plans could be scrapped due to the possible contingencies.

“Oakland is not really viewed as an alternative at this point,” one league executive said. “There’s nothing new on that end.”
The Raiders want a new stadium and don't want to pay for it. Oakland won't pony up so buh-bye Raiders.

I wouldn't buy them a new one either.
