Oakland stadium landlord prefers Raiders leave by 2019

The Raiders are the third National Football League team in the last two years to relocate. Ultimately he didn't think a proper plan was in place.

Raiders owner Mark Davis hinted at the idea of staying in Oakland for the 2019 season on Monday, when the league owners officially approved the team's relocation to Las Vegas. "But at the end of the day, it became clear that she was not going to be able to get that done".

The owners' historic 31-1 decision allows owner Mark Davis to uproot for the team for the third time in 35 years _ much to the dismay of diehard East Bay fans.

"All the Raiders fans my age, no way you can do it", said Ivan Davis, a fan of the team for a half-century. Moving the Raiders? You can move a lot of teams but not many fan bases like the Raiders fan base. The Rams moved back to Los Angeles from St. Louis a year ago. They're going to love Las Vegas. "There are reasons, I am sure, and this subject has been a big one in Oakland for decades, yet somehow it feels this deal was slammed through too fast, before exhausting opportunities all over the East Bay".

Coming to Las Vegas, the Raiders will be housed in a $1.7 billion specially built state-of-the-art dome.

"The points that we always put back to Oakland were that we need certainty and a viable plan that will work for the community and the team long-term", he said during a press conference. The first lame duck season was something of a farcical attendance disaster, as they played to mostly empty stadiums and hostile crowds at home.

The team will reportedly not move to Vegas until 2020, which is when the new stadium is projected to be finished.

One of the most contentious relocations, in American sports history the Browns left the city over the lack of stadium infrastructure.

Until that time, they will continue to call Oakland home. His team continued playing in Oakland while the court battle was ongoing, playing two seasons before Davis finally won the right to move.
