On Monday, NFL owners approved the franchise's eventual move from Oakland to Las Vegas. The NFL's owners approved the move almost unanimously (31 of 32 votes), in keeping with recent tradition of treating California like an entrance/exit mat.
They will lose some of their current fans, but the real question is the next generation of Raiders fans.
The letter sent to Mayor Libby Schaaf on Friday lays out the NFL's view of Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott and his investors' $1.3 billion development plan to build a new stadium for the team at the Coliseum complex.
Raiders owner Mark Davies spoke of his delight at the news in a statement.
It's interesting that the Raiders will remain in Oakland at the Coliseum for the next two seasons, especially since fans probably won't exactly be fond with how this all played out. But the club has been reticent to explore that route because of the facility's 35,500-seat capacity and outdated locker rooms. As I said earlier, there's going to be some disappointed fans and angry fans, and it's going to be up to me to talk to them and let them know why, how and what has happened, and hopefully we can work things out and work together for the future. We plan to play at the (Oakland-Alameda County) Coliseum in 2017 and 2018, and hope to stay there as the Oakland Raiders until the new stadium opens.
"We will compete and we will do our best to bring a championship to the entire Raider Nation".
Goodell acknowledged and thanked Oakland city officials, specifically Schaaf, for being "accessible, creative and diligent in exploring alternatives".
But the Raiders brand transcends Oakland, and will be a flawless fit in a city where nearly anbything goes.
The younger Davis graciously accepted defeat 14 months ago in Houston, when National Football League owners backed the Rams' relocation bid to L.A. And he didn't protest when it was the Chargers, not his Raiders, who got first dibs on the second spot in Los Angeles.
The Raiders have played in Oakland for all but 13 seasons of their existence ― first from 1960 to 1981, then again from 1995 until this year. The Lions were 2-3 there all time. "I'm a Raider fan for life". That was my juice for the game.
"It's business, right? It's the entertainment business", Marshall said.
On Jan. 12, the Chargers announced they would take that option.
"The commitment made by the legislature and the governor was very strong", Davis said. "Well, not happy about it, but we will do that". The Raiders would go on to win the AFL the following season but lose to Green Bay 33-14 in the second Super Bowl. And visiting teams will have to handle those dynamics as well. And that was just for the one lame-duck home game played there after relocation news had broken. "It's the strip, but it's really big and it can be overwhelming, at times, for young, immature players".
"We've been through a few moves already", Alas said.
