Oakland stadium director: No desire to host Raiders in '19

Roster turnover is high these days, meaning most now employed by the Raiders won't play for the home team in Las Vegas.

The only owner to vote against the Raiders' relocation was the Miami Dolphins' Stephen Ross, a man who Draymond Green considers as a mentor and an admirable person for standing up for what he believes in.

The first was as the Oakland Raiders, the second was in Los Angeles, although the team still practiced in Northern California. I feel like all fans should feel that way. Unlike the Rams and the Chargers - both of whom moved to Los Angeles - the Raiders will not immediately be leaving the city of Oakland. The team on Tuesday sent McKibben a written request to play next season in Oakland, ahead of the March 31 deadline to notify the stadium authority.

Payton: Saints won't sign Butler to offer sheet
The Patriots have tendered him at the first-round level, for $3.91 million, but Butler hasn't signed the tender. In fact, we're not going to do that. "I don't think any of those are the question right now".

That is the question facing fans of the Raiders after National Football League owners on Monday approved franchise relocation to Las Vegas.

In 2016, Oakland Raiders fans were rewarded for their loyalty-after 14 seasons without making the playoffs, sophomore quarterback Derek Carr led the team to a 12-win season and their first postseason action since Rich Gannon and the 2002 iteration fell in Super Bowl XXXVII. The NFL announced their move to Las Vegas. "If I were the fans I wouldn't attend a game for the next two years but that's just me".

For years Davis had threatened to move the franchise if a new stadium was not built. The team will stay in Oakland for the next two seasons, and possibly a third, as it waits for a $1.9 billion domed stadium to be built in Las Vegas. When it's done and the Raiders move in, UNLV will as well.

The latest move came on the back of a number of advertisers in the European Union started boycotting YouTube since last week. Similarly a 2% decrease would affect only 0.3% of the company's overall revenues.

Green made sure to mention that moving a town over is different than bolting to another city 500 miles away.

"If I was the fans I wouldn't attend a game the next two years". "I wouldn't attend a game". I won't attend a game, and I'm not a diehard Raiders fan, but I do support the city of Oakland.

Will the Raiders lose much of their home-field advantage because their fans feel betrayed? "You just don't do that". But it doesn't sound like Green-who said he has been to about "eight or nine" Raiders home games since joining the Warriors in 2012-is going to head to Oakland Coliseum to see them play anytime soon.
