National Football League owners approve Raiders move to Las Vegas

"This gives us the ability to achieve that".

On Jan. 12, the Chargers announced their plans to relocate to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, giving the nation's second most populous city two National Football League franchises for the first time since the Raiders and Rams departed in 1995. And if you own a team, you should have the deep pockets to deliver.

The Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles in 2016, and in January the Chargers relocated from San Diego to LA. It's not like we didn't see this coming, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't hurt. We worked tirelessly over the last nine months or so on a solution. We will compete and we will do our best to bring a championship to the entire Raider Nation.

"We have two more years of lease options for Oakland right now", Davis said.

USA attorneys are investigating Deutsche Bank, President Trump's largest single lender, for laundering Russian funds. He will continue to serve in the other roles even as he takes up the new duties, the White House said.

"I wouldn't use the term lame duck", Davis insisted. He said the vote came very quickly after Raiders' owner Marc Davis made his presentation to the owners. "I think it will definitely expand the whole market, everyone is going to Vegas for something, but as well catch a football game while you're down there".

According to Mick Akers of the Las Vegas Sun, brothel owner Dennis Hof is planning to open a Raiders-themed location offering half-off prices for players and staff.

He said fans need to mobilize and called for a boycott of Bank of America, whose $650 million loan is helping fund the new stadium in Las Vegas.

Like Perez, other Raider fans say they aren't quitting on their team.

North Korea may have launched several missiles Wednesday: Kyodo
North Korea reportedly has two types of missiles, the KN-14 and KN-08, that could potentially reach the USA mainland. A South Korean military official told Reuters the missile appeared to have exploded just after it was launched.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wrote a letter to Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf late Friday evening that expressed disappointment in the city's latest stadium finance proposals and sparked a strong jolt of momentum for the relocation. You know, it's the Davis family and their vendetta and all of the difficulties dealing with the city of Oakland, the NFL.

"If I was the fans I wouldn't attend a game the next two years". The Raiders could spend the next two or even three seasons in the Bay Area before their stadium - whose estimated cost has recently dropped from $1.9 billion to $1.7 billion - is ready. "There's gonna be a few instances where there's gonna a people that say ' you know what, I can't do it, I'm done' but I think for most of the Raiders fans, they're gonna follow that team wherever they go".

The likelihood of the East Bay welcoming the Raiders for a third season at the aging Coliseum they share with the Athletics - the only such NFL/MLB arrangement remaining - isn't high.

Meanwhile, the A's, who were probably the team that wanted out the most five years ago, are the only major-league Oakland sports team that has no plans to leave.
