Is how we feel about it. Been a Raider fan for 40+ years, the whacked out freak show named Davis can eat shit.

    I feel for the fans in Oakland. I just went through this with the Chargers. No longer a fan. I actually wanted the Raiders to come here! I used to follow the combine and the draft and everything related to the Chargers. Now, nothing. Padres will suck for years to come and all we have is Aztec football and basketball.

    31-1 vote? Really? I hope these moves come back to bite the NFL owners in the ass!

    Sorry to all the die hard Raider fans. I was a Rams fan all my life. Heartbroken when they moved to St Louis... And he won a super bowl. But I stayed a Rams fan. I live in Vegas now. Really excited about Raiders and new Stadium. Hopefully some of the Raider nation can visit for some games. Again, I feel bad for the true Raiders fans. Your county commission should have done more.

    Being a lifelong fan I feel for Oakland losing them twice... I felt it when they went back to Oakland and it sucks.
    However financially it is a no brainer move for the team and the NFL ....
    I am a raider fan but going to Oakland or any other city for a game just never appealed to me... however vegas has always been a destination spot for me and millions of other people worldwide even with no pro franchise...
    Now put a team with a brand that has a world wide fan base in Vegas and suddenly going to a game becomes a celebrity filled place to be event in a city with more adult stuff to do than any other...
    I know that I will go to a game there for sure and I'm sure many other fans that normally would not travel will feel the same way...
    How bout a 10 day Vegas trip that begins and ends with home games!!
    I'd crawl home but PHEW it would be awesome ...

    Imagine all the foreign tourists who might have an interest in American football that would never travel to the U.S. just to see a game but would travel to LV for a vacation mainly because there is more to do and taking in a game would be icing on the cake.

    I think getting any kind of stadium built in California with public funds is pretty much out of the question, especially if its a stand alone project that isn't a part of an entertainment destination with a real chance of being in the black. There's too much to do in California with distance between attractions and all I can think of is all those derelict Olympic stadiums of the last 4 or 5 games.

    Rams did this to me. I no longer follow NFL. Sundays are freed up.

    I lived in Vegas for a couple years, Once you get off the Strip you realize it's just another dirty gang plagued ghetto city like L.A. or Oakland. Seems like a match made in heaven.

    Even if you live in nice areas like Summerlin, you can never get away from the cheese.

    Go to the Nordstroms at the north end of the strip and right across from it is a strip mall with an all nude cabaret, adult toy store, and all sorts of other garbage. I foreclosed on that pos when I ran the receivership for Community Bank of Nevada.

    Yup. You can hole up in Henderson or Green Valley or Summerlin but eventually you'll have to go out to dinnner or the DMV or god forbid shopping at the local Smiths grocery store....and you NEVER step foot on a Walmart property. Sad but true.

    It's a business. Don't plan your life around someone else's you'll never meet. Fan to me means buying a beer while they show the game of what's on.

    No intention of living in Vegas (no yellows or calicos) but one of the best experiences I've ever had was a 3 day bachelor party in San Diego where we went to 3 padre games and afterwards walked out of the outfield exits to the gas lamp district to party ..
    I am not a padre fan but the stadium and the party atmosphere made it a blast..
    I can only imagine how fun it would be if it was my raiders attached to Vegas ...if they had yellows and calicos too I would never leave...

    I was born n raised in the bay. Fuck the raiders. Hope the organization dies a miserable death to the corruption of LV gambling!

    I wonder how many fans will fly to Vegas and bet against them haha and how many oddsmakers will pay the players off....just a matter of time.
