    Raiders are moving to Las Vegas

    The move was approved today when 31 out of 32 votes were tallied, although 24 votes as all that was needed to approve the re-locate. The only team against the move was Miami.

    I wonder what the problem the Miami Dolphins have with the Raiders moving to Vegas.

    And for the record, I love it!

    If the new stadium is anything like the one in the picture, then it's pretty sweet.

    The latest city to suffer the wrath of a league that thrives on public tax dollars. Vegas will shell out the hundreds of millions in public subsidy that Oakland refused.

    Pay your ransom or lose your team.

    Can't wait until that's an away game for my team. There's one road trip I'll plan.

    Adding $1.50 per day to room charges to pay for it...we (visitors) will be paying for it not the locals.

    Stadium may have more suites than any stadium in history, due to expected demand from Casinos. Casinos are expected to grab as many as possible for big rollers, celebrities and promotions. I heard one discussion where they said that Casinos could end up buy the majority of tickets to package with room packages.

    Las Vegas is uniquely situated to increase taxes when necessary. It's definitely helped them here.

    It'll be like going to Arizona Diamondbacks baseball games: all the fans are there to see the visitors.

    Can you imagine the first superbowl there.

    And I believe the Bengals will play there in 2021. Not sure about the Steelers.
