NFL team owners approve Raiders' move to Las Vegas - NFL.com

Should be fun.. couple years away though.. but I'm excited.

Also.. Petersen is still sans a job.. will he land anywhere?

Rumor has it that Peterson is demanding 8 mil, and no one will give a 32 year old back with a substantial injury history that kind of money. He's either going to have to swallow his ego or retire.

I fail to see the issue with the Raiders' move. LA has two teams already. Oakland is a shithole. Staying in the far west is preferable to them moving to San Antonio, Toronto, or some other random locale.

I understand why most cities are starting to push back against the publicly financed stadium scam, as the city never gets it paid for, the team always wants expensive renovations, etc, etc, and it just becomes welfare for the ultra-wealthy at the city's expense. But in this instance, what choice did Davis have, stay in the black hole and never attract a free agent ever again? Oakland is virtually uninhabitable. Dude had to do something, and Big Al would definitely approve.

Yeah, the Coliseum needs to die a fiery death.

I can see how it sucks for local fans, but hell, going to that damn stadium was already a punishment.

I would have preferred LA, but Vegas is a nice 2nd place.

Yeah, I don't blame them for not wanting to go back to LA and be second fiddle to the rams in their own stadium. LA had a shot and blew it, so I don't feel badly for them.

I expect Vegas to at least generate some excitement, and I can see the team having far more tourist traffic where people see a game while in town on vacation. No one "just happened" to be in Oakland on gameday...

Besides, what NFL franchise fits better in Sin City than the Raiders?! It wouldn't have the same vibe at all if the Jags moved there. It almost HAD to be the Raiders.

Yeah the "bad boy"/Sin City aesthetic works for the Raiders. Saints would have been kind of cool, if only for the Saint/Sinner theme.

We're one step closer to the Tusken Raiders

I wonder if, after a few years, the location gives the Raiders a home edge.. will other teams players be tempted by Vegas and get hung over before the game? Maybe once the home team gets it out of their system.. I dunno.

Either way, it's hours closer for me.. and hopefully a really nice stadium. Stoked!

He'll be good in the booth, and let's be honest, he's better off. We'd all have been holding our breath waiting on him to get paralyzed or killed if he came back. When the body raises the white flag on a career, you'd best pay attention.

Yeah, glad to see hes not going to Denver too.

Wonder what Houston is going to do? They kind of counted on him.

You just drafted the Anti-Smith. Congratz and hallelujah!

It won't pay off this year, but hopefully by '18, KC will be dud-free and Smith will be back to doing something more his speed, like selling insurance.

This Mahomes kid seems pretty intelligent and his parents did a good job raising him. He's saying all the right things, so hopefully he absorbs all of the pre-snap shit and footwork from AS11 over the next year or two. Perfect situation as long as people stay healthy and patient.

I'm intrigued by this Hunt kid too. He should contribute immediately at RB from the looks of his film. Fumbled once in 800 carries in college and he carries tacklers on his back for 3-4 yards. Patient runner. Slower than the scat backs.

Chiefs fired Dorsey. This man gave the Chiefs one of the top 5 rosters in the NFL and we fire him with no explanation instead of extending him with Reid.

Do you think Reid wanted to be the solo top dog?

That does seem weird, other than keeping Alex Smith around I can't think of many other missteps. Letting Jamal sign with Denver?

Still no explanation or replacement hired. They better get their shot together soon and hopefully promote This Veech guy internally to show some continuity. We don't need some outsider coming in to make his mark.

I guess. It's not like any of us know anything about office people. Veach staarted 10yrs ago for Andy in Philly and keeps working his way up. Supposedly really good at spotting talent and a big reason Philly and the Chiefs have drafted well while he was there. That's really all we need, a talent evaluator since Reid can basically do the rest.
