#BREAKINGNEWS The Raiders are Coming to Vegas!!!

posted by Roxy Romeo - 

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

The Raiders will still play in Oakland in 2017 and possible longer.

With a 65,000-seat, $1.9 billion domed stadium to be shared with UNLV not expected to open until 2020, Raiders owner Mark Davis has told ESPN he plans on staying in Oakland the next two seasons. The team holds a pair of one-year options at the Oakland Coliseum.

The Raiders would presumably then have to find a place to play in 2019 and Davis has all but ruled out using UNLV's current home, 35,500-seat Sam Boyd Stadium about nine miles southeast of campus, due to outdated locker rooms and the lack of a proper security border around the facility. The Raiders could conceivably play one preseason game a year at Sam Boyd Stadium before moving to Las Vegas permanently.
