The Oakland Raiders will move to Las Vegas after garnering enough votes from NFL owners on Monday to relocate to Southern Nevada.

The Raiders received 31 of 32 votes to approve the move. Twenty-four votes were needed. The Miami Dolphins were the only team to vote against the move, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Niners last team standing in Bay Area, but not expecting to gain Raiders fans - ESPN.

"The Raiders fans are a unique group," York said. "I don't know that they've necessarily been loyal to L.A. or to Oakland, I think they have always been loyal to the Raiders. I think you'll see the Raiders following them wherever they may go, and going to Las Vegas in a few years, I think you'll see that really take place.

If the Raiders capitalize on last season and make a deep run, maybe playing the Seahawks for the championship, fans will live through the move. Las Vegas, like LA, isn't that far. Seattle has never forgiven the Sonics' departure, but that was a true betrayal. I don't think Davis is nearly as callous. But free money talks.

That's exactly right. Raiders fans are fans to the Raiders - not the city which they are playing in at that particular moment. Hmm

...but given that Las Vegas has gone from mobster crowd to current gangsta crowd - the Raiders will fit into the new Las Vegas very, very well. smile

There was never a serious plan in Oakland to replace the partially condemned Oakland Coliseum - or whatever the trump they are calling it these days.

I think Davis would've stayed if there was anything, but there wasn't and hasn't been; though it's supposedly been a goal of all concerned since the move back to Oakland.
