Raiders are moving to the City of Sin

Raiders are moving to the City of Sin”

It sounds as though as the Raiders will need a temporary home prior to their new stadium opening in Las Vegas for the 2020 season.

In the case of Mack, the Raiders' first-round pick in 2014, the team can exercise the option for his fifth season in 2018.

Stanford economics professor, Roger Noll, who began studying team moves more than four decades ago, says this about teams coming or going. I just think it's very bad when teams leave a city, leave an area and go elsewhere after so many years of history and connections to generations of fans. The fact the team spurned it in favor of a more expensive and bigger facility in Las Vegas takes away a risk to the city, said Jenny Poree, senior director at S&P Global Ratings.

"It is important that we grieve because this is a tremendous loss". That's why Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf fought so hard to keep the Raiders.

Best of all, said Ross, the Dolphins stayed in South Florida, their home since 1966 (five years after the Chargers arrived in San Diego) and also where he spent most of his childhood.

Rich Kotite, who took over after Carroll, wasn't interested. "So it doesn't matter what team he plays for". Ball , a 6-foot-6, 190-pound point guard, averaged an NCAA-best 7.7 assists per game this season.

In fact, the City of San Antonio dedicated $50 million in upgrades to the facility that will be completed by the end of 2017, flawless timing for a showcase of what the 'dome would look like hosting National Football League games.

Unfortunately for Oakland, the red-hot Chiefs (who went on to compete in Super Bowl I that same year) went in and demolished the Raiders. "We wanted to make sure that we leaned into that fan base and we did everything we could to show we cared about everything they've done to support us over 49 years".

"I think sports teams, in general, offer up identity, right?"

In response to Schaaf, the National Football League and Commissioner Roger Goodell issued a statement to the mayor and the city that said this stadium deal has been in the works for eight years and there are no current viable options from Oakland.

Lululemon shares tumble after disappointing sales forecast
The apparel retailer reported $1.00 earnings per share for the quarter, missing the Zacks' consensus estimate of $1.01 by $0.01. "The magnitude of the trend reversal for Lululemon was surprising", wrote Evercore ISI analyst Omar Saad in a research note.

He and other long-time Raider fans he told me he has talked with are alarmed that the motivation to move yet another team seemed to be based exclusively on money, especially when the Chargers were a viable option and they are the team with the struggling revenue stream.

That's especially true with its rapid transit, rail, highway and nearby airport connections.

That leaves the Oakland A's, which have been threatening to leave the city for years.

Many disappointed fans now agree.

He said he didn't think that the Raiders had met the relocation criteria by doing all they could to find a workable solution to stay in the Bay Area. Instead, Oakland proposed a plan that used private money, while Las Vegas was able to secure $750 million in taxpayer funds.
