Here's what else Oakland is losing, along with the Raiders

Here's what else Oakland is losing, along with the Raiders

Whether you agree with Draymond Green's comments or not, be clear, that Green is someone who has ingratiated himself with the Bay Area, more specifically in Oakland, with his community work. They also support lobbying efforts by fans on the rare occasion that the Cowboys and Texans play on the same network at the same time. "It's on the coaching staff now to keep them focused and disciplined". Now, he covers them on the radio. "[It's] very sad, really, because a lot of my friends are affected by it".

The Raiders' eventual move to Las Vegas appears to have hit a snag this week, with the head of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority telling USA Today Sports that he's unlikely to welcome the team back to the stadium in 2019. "But I didn't, so I welcome them".

"I would probably tell you that I think society has probably had a little bit of a change with respect to gambling in general", Goodell said. By Jan. 15 if they did not exercise the L.A. option that National Football League owners had given them the preceding January, the right would have transferred to the Raiders.

The Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles in 2016, and in January the Chargers relocated from San Diego to Los Angeles. As such, he knows how hard moves like this can be. But Rams fans in Hawaii are now much closer to their team's home games, and the Raiders' impending move is especially beneficial to fans here.

"People always asked me what was my favorite place to play", Marshall said.

The Raiders become the third franchise - all with strong followings in Hawaii - to announce or make a move within the past two years.

The A's and Raiders now share the Oakland Coliseum site, the only MLB/NFL dual facility still in existence.

Despite the relatively young age of their facility and large amount of debt to pay off on it, the Rams moved back to L.A. previous year as they await the privately financed, $2.6 billion stadium to be located in Inglewood and set to open in 2019.

Davis said any season ticket holders who have already paid for next season will get full refunds if they seek them.

"And I think that's important to remember, we're not taking the referee out of the equation", Blandino has said. Oakland, he says, deserves better and he says he would boycott the team.

A would-be financial contributor to the Vegas deal, Sheldon Adelson, would drop out, and it took patching that hole before the Raiders could secure National Football League approval to relocate.

"My first reaction was shock", said long-time Raiders fan Brennen Scarborough on his reaction to the news.

"It could, because your home is not a home", Flores said. And when they do play locally, the city of Oakland subsidizes them.
