The Raiders should move to Vegas, Oakland doesn't have the wherewithal or the desire. Remember the last deal to keep the Raiders in Oakland, don't fall for it again. Read my lips, no new taxes. Bay area fans can watch it on T.V.

The Raiders have never cared about Oakland or Alameda county. All the Davis family has done is create massive debt and countless wasted hours and resources trying to woo them and show them why they should be here. To heck with you Davis family. Move to Vegas, enjoy your lack of fan base and a local population that does not have deep pockets to afford your insanely priced seats. Don't let the door hit you in the rear. I hope Mark finds a better barber down there.
